Have you ever thought that the soundtrack of Vivek Agnihotri’s movie ‘The Kashmir Files’ will play in Pakistan? Not only that, the former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan himself will play the soundtrack of the Indian movie? Although it may sound surprising, that is what happened in the neighboring country.
Pak Rangers arrested Imran Khan from Islamabad High Court premises last Tuesday. Imran’s party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf or PTI came out in protest. As a result, the situation gradually became fiery.
The director of ‘The Kashmir Files’ Vivek Agnihotri tweeted about this after the matter came to notice. In the caption, he mentioned the whole matter as ‘Irony of Pakistan’.
“The result of wrong knowledge. This song was written by Faiz Ahmed Faiz. We bought the property from Faiz House. It has many versions. We own the legal rights to the version of the soundtrack used.” Indian film director wrote on Twitter.
Incidentally, the song ‘Hum Chienge’ used in ‘The Kashmir Files’ was written by Pakistani left-wing thinker and Urdu poet Faiz Ahmed Faraz. The Indian movie song was played from Imran’s Instagram to boost the morale of the workers. Trolling has already started on social media.
The song made headlines in 2021 during protests against the CAA and NRC in various parts of India. Many then referred to it as an ‘anti-Hindu’ song. There were also demands to ban the song.
On the other hand, Imran Khan got relief in the Supreme Court of Pakistan on Thursday. The court termed his arrest as ‘illegal’. The immediate release of the former Prime Minister and PTI Chairman was ordered. He was arrested by Pak Rangers in Al-Qadir Trust case of land scam.
Yesterday, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Umar Ata Bandyal, said, “If you want to arrest someone from the court premises, you have to take the permission of the court registrar. That rule was not followed in the case of Imran’s arrest.” However, the Supreme Court of Pakistan said that the hearing of the case against Imran will be held in the Islamabad High Court.
