BJP Leader Copies ISPR’s ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ Song. Then Accuses Pakistan Of ‘Plagiarism’
Bhartiya Janta Party Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) Thakur Raja Singh Lodh plagiarized Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) produced patriotic song ‘Pakistan Zindabad‘ and presented it as his own song for India.
But Director-General ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor called him out on Twitter for blatantly copying the entire song and making some minor changes. “Glad that you copied. But copy to speak the truth as well. #PakistanZindabad,” DG ISPR said on his personal Twitter account.
The only change the BJP leader made in the lyrics was replacing ‘Pakistan’ with ‘Hindustan’.

But the story doesn’t end here.
Instead of apologizing for blatant plagiarism, he accused Pakistan of ‘copying’ his song.
The Indian politician criticized the Pakistan media for ‘claiming’ that he copied the song. He said that he received messages from Indian media who appreciated him for making ‘such a wonderful song’.
He went on to say that Indian did not need to ‘copy’ songs from Pakistan because India had the best singers in the world and that too in every language.
It isn’t clear whether he was calling himself a ‘singer’, but he sure is a pretty horrible one.
