Pakistani make a guiness world record by singing National Anthem [Qaumī Tarāna – قومی ترانہ]

The Qaumī Tarāna (قومی ترانہ), also known as Pāk Sarzamīn (The Pure Land), is the national anthem of Pakistan. The words “Qaumi Tarana” in Urdu literally translate to “National Anthem”. Its music, composed by Ahmad G. Chagla in 1950, preceded its lyrics, which were written by Hafeez Jullundhri in 1952. Another feature of the anthem is that no verse in the three stanza lyrics is repeated.

The enthusiastic youth of the Punjab broke the mass singing of the national anthem record here at the National Hockey Stadium on Saturday when Adjudicators of Guinness World Records (GWR) announced the attempt officially successful.

It was a remarkable moment when GRW adjudicators Gareth Daeves and Imran Javed gave thumb up to the Punjab youth’s attempt, boosting their fervour and making them to raise slogans ‘Pakistan Zindaabad’.

With this attempt, Pakistan broke the Indian record of maximum masses singing national anthem which the Indians had set with a gathering of around 15,000 people. Now Pakistan’s name will be written in the 2013 Guinness Book of World Record – a great achievement of Pakistani youth and a great honour for its inhabitants.

The record breaking attempt was closely watched and observed by the representatives GWR as they witnessed over 42, 813 participants singing the national anthem of Pakistan. As many as 15 cameras were installed at various places to see the record attempt closely.

Sahir Lodhi and Naeem Hanif were the two persons on the stage who boosted the zeal of jam-packed crowd and readied them to sing the national anthem with their heart and soul to get it registered in the Guinness Book of World Record.
