National Anthem of The Pakistani Federation




The Qaumi Taranah (Urdu: قومی ترانہ‎‎, also known as Pāk Sarzamīn (Urdu: پاک سرزمین‎‎, “The Sacred Land”), is the national anthem of The Pakistani Federation. Its music was composed by Ahmad G. Chagla in 1949, preceding the lyrics, which were written by Hafeez Jullundhri in 1952. It was officially adopted as Pakistan's national anthem in August 1954 and was recorded in the same year by eleven major singers of Pakistan including Ahmad Rushdi, Kaukab Jahan, Rasheeda Begum, Najam Ara, Naseema Shaheen, Zawar Hussain, Akhtar Abbas, Ghulam Dastagir, Anwar Zaheer and Akhtar Wasi Ali.
