The lone BJP MLA from Telangana Thakur Raja Singh Lodh has refuted the Pakistani Armys allegation that he copied its anthem and said one did not have to copy anything from a "terrorist state like Pakistan."
The Pakistani Army on Sunday asked India to emulate Pakistan in speaking "truth" as it mocked an Indian legislator, claiming that the politician has copied its anthem and dedicated it to the Indian armed forces.
Singh, representing the Goshamahal constituency in Hyderabad, had tweeted, "My new song which will be released on 14th April at 11:45 AM on the occasion of #SriRamNavami is dedicated to our #IndianArmy forces.
However, as Lodh shared a snippet of the song on social media, the Pakistani Army claimed that the composition was a copy of a song released by its media wing on March 23 for Pakistan Day. The song was written by Sahir Ali Bagga.
According to Pakistan media reports, Lodh copied the song 'Zindabad Pakistan' and recorded it by changing it to 'Zindabad Hindustan' and dedicated it to Indian armed forces.
Lodh, however, hit back and tweeted "Good to see even #Pakistan media is covering my song "#Hindustan Zindabad.I'm more surprised that even a terrorist nation produces singer's (sic).
#Pakistani singer's (sic) may have copied my song we don't have to copy anything from a terrorist state like Pakistan, Raja Singh said in a tweet Sunday.
