ISLAMABAD (UNA-OIC) – The official anthem of the 48th session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers “Hum Mustafavi Hain’ was launched in Islamabad today (Saturday).
It is the official anthem of the OIC which was written by Jamiluddin Aali.
Speaking on the occasion, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi thanked Ministry of Information and Broadcasting for refreshing the old memories and emotions through the remixing of the song.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said it is a matter of great honour for Pakistan that in a matter of few months, it is hosting the OIC meeting for the second time. He said several foreign ministers from the OIC countries will attend the meeting.
The Foreign Minister said this session is special because it is coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the creation of Pakistan.
Earlier in his remarks, Pakistani Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhary Fawad Hussain recalled that it was in 1974 that the OIC through a resolution had declared ‘Hum Mustafavi Hain’ as the official song of the OIC. He said each stanza of this song is inspired from Quran. The theme of the song is: “hold firmly to the rope of Allah and do not be divided”. He said we have tried to maintain the originality of the anthem.
