"Avain ankh bhar ati hai, meri kaum badi jazbati hai"
(Can cry without any reason, my nation is just full of emotion)
These are the repeating vocals of a song crooned by a popular Pakistani rock band called Beygairat Brigade (Shameless Brigade). The band is popular for making music videos mocking the Pakistani army and the nation's political structure.
This time, with Ali Aftab Saeed as its lead vocalist, the band has taken a dig at the Pakistan-nation at large. At least, that's what it seems like from Jazbati, the new video.
The close to two-and-a-half-minute video shows Saeed recording the song in a studio. As the song progresses, one hears Saeed sing about how 'his' nation does damage to itself by trying to be close to USA and also by being the self-acclaimed guardians of Islam.
The lyrics go like:
"Je Bharat ne hamla kita, fauj te atom bomb chale-si...
Israel da naam na le si, CIA di aisi-taisi..."
Is tarah ki baatein kar ke, apna dil behlati hai
("If India attacks us, we'll pour an atom bomb there. Don't even utter Israel's name, we'll set the CIA off." My nation says these things in order to distract itself from the reality)
Well, what else? Just check out the video.
Earlier, the band came up with a music video Aalu Andey, that lampooned Pakistani leaders like Ashfaq Kayani, Zia-ul-Haq, Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan.
