However, documentary forgot to pay tribute to all singers but it was a worth initiative to propote those who are no more with us but they played their role to protect their motherland. Noor Jehan, Mehdi Hassan, Naseem Begum, Ahmed Rushdi, Masod Rana, Inayat Hussain BhattiMala, Alam Lohar and Saleem Raza kept Pakistanis charged with patriotism during war days through their voices.

    Radio Pakistan staff worked days and nights during first one week and produced best ever patriotic songs while poets like Sufi Tabasab and Jameelurdin Ali were almost living inside Radio Pakistan buildings.


    APP that is the state run news agency of Pakistan reported that national and patriotic songs played a collective role to move the nation forward and made them realize that Pakistanis were equipped with self-confidence and unwavering faith and that Pakistani as a nation will not be undone by the evil and ill-willed designs of the enemy.

    Role of renowned Pakistani singer, Madam Noor Jehan could not be forgotten as she sang a number of national songs for Pak Armed Forces. When these songs were used to be broadcast by Radio Pakistan, dedicated to the Pak Armed Forces who were bravely defending the borders of Pakistan, it used to send waves of patriotism and national fervor down the spines of many Pakistanis regardless of their ethnicity, religious or political affiliations and background.
