Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif will launch the re-recorded national anthem composed with modern technology on the occasion of Independence Day on Sunday.

He is the second elected Prime Minister after Liaquat Ali Khan who will have this unique honor.

The National Anthem has been re-recorded after 68 years, with the participation of 155 singers, 48 musicians and 6 bandmasters.

The project has been completed in collaboration with various departments including Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and ISPR.

The brass bands of all three armed forces also participated in this national effort.

The new compositions, recorded with excellent imaging carry a rainbow of all the cultural and regional colours of Pakistan.

The re-recording of the national anthem began in August 2017 during the previous tenure of PML-N.

After assuming the portfolio of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting in April this year, Maryam Aurangzeb started the work of completing the project quickly.
