Foreigners Who Wished Pakistan a Happy Independence Day Today

Robin & Jesper wishing Pakistan a Happy Independence Day

Today Pakistan becomes 70 years old and the excitement among Pakistanis is evident from the fireworks and patakhay, the loud sound of national songs, the Pakistani flag atop every roof and of course the celebratory dancing on the streets.

However, it is not just the Pakistanis who are happily wishing each other a “Happy Independence Day” but a lot of non-locals are also joining in on the festivities with their social media messages and gestures.

Youtubers Robin & Jesper

The first video that we saw this morning was that of Youtubers Robin & Jesper who greeted their Pakistani fans a happy “National Day” and as a gesture of their love they reacted to Coke Studio’s version of our beloved National Anthem.

It was great to start the day with words of appreciation from Robin and Jesper for the powerful lyrics of “Pak sar zameen shad baad” (even though the Coke Studio rendition of the national anthem is not the best that we know of).

Thank you guys! You most certainly made our day!

Love From India

If there’s one thing that’s common between Pakistan and India it’s the intense love and hate relationship that we share. Every now and then however, there are gestures from both sides that make us forget our mutual distrust of each other and find ourselves embracing and appreciating the undiluted essence of pure love.

Most of you must have already heard about the Indian Acapella group, Voxchord that sang the Pakistani national anthem as a gift to the country on its 70th Independence Day. We absolutely loved this rendition! A lot of love from team Bolo Jawan right back at you wonderful neighbours! For those of you who might have missed this love-filled video, here it is!

Topping our pick of tweets is (surprisingly) Rishi Kapoor. We say this because all through 2017 Rishi Kapoor received a lot of flake  from Pakistani twitterati for his hate tweets. Upon India’s loss in the final against Pakistan in ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Rishi did congratulate the winning side but the rejoicing fans were in an unforgiving mood. However, at midnight today, Kapoor redeemed himself by wishing Pakistan a Happy Independence Day. With 1,400 retweets this message has certainly been well received.

Famous former Indian police officer, Sanjiv Bhatt sent out this message of love and friendship.

Numerous messages are still pouring in to wish Pakistan on its 70th birthday. Here are a few more from around the world.

Thank you for all the love! Pakistan zindabad!
