Junaid Jamshed, Salman Ahmed, Shahi Hassan and Nusrat Hussain come together to create a musical treat for inspiring a new Pakistan
The audio track is expected to be released on 22nd February and the formal release on 23rd March
The simple yet marvelous Dil Dil Pakistan remains to be the ‘anthem’ of our nation. 25 years later, founding Vital Signs members Shahzad Hassan (Shahi), Salman Ahmad, Nusrat Hussain and Junaid Jamshed (JJ) are collaborating on what they hope to be the new musical sensation — a track titled Naya Pakistan.
Shahi believes that the song has all the right ingredients to make it into an inspirational number for Pakistanis. “It probably will inspire the most cynical of Pakistanis who have completely lost hope. It has that power,” he says.

On Dec 27, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, 24, boasted about the party’s ‘proud’ record of bringing real justice to Pakistan.
Three days earlier, 20-year-old Shahzeb Khan was brutally gunned down in Karachi by the sons of the same corrupt feudal elite that Bilawal represents. Shahzeb’s only ‘crime’ was defending the honour of his sister who was harassed while returning from a wedding.
A verbal brawl broke out between Shahzeb and two absconding suspects. Shahzeb’s father, an officer in the Sindh Police, mediated the scuffle and implored both parties to back off. But power and money intoxicate and corrupt absolutely. The feudal sense of entitlement and revenge of both the accused — one said to be a Jatoi and the other a Talpur — emboldened them to act above the law and they did precisely that. Accompanied by armed guards, they followed Shahzeb’s car and allegedly pumped four bullets into the young man near Mubarak Masjid in Defence.
This kind of senseless violence has become the norm in Pakistan.
