Pakistan’s national anthem was adopted in August 1954. It is written by Abu Al-Asar Hafeez Jalandhari and its music composed by Ahmed 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.
