National Anthem of Pakistan

National Anthem of Pakistan. Our national anthem was adopted in August 1954. It is written by Hafeez Jullundhri and its music composed by Ahmad Ghulamali Chagla. The lyrics are written in Urdu, but uses a heavy Persian poetic vocabulary, with the word کا (kā) in the second stanza being the only word which is exclusively Urdu and not borrowed from Persian.
