Reflecting to the recent Multan Metro inaugural ceremony and the Metro in South Punjab TVC, Vital Signs’ famous song ‘Dil Dil Pakistan’ was used as a background jingle during the inaugural speech, which was highly criticized by Junoon.
In vengeance, Junoon took to their official Facebook page and expressed their hard feelings by stating:
“Less than two months since JJ passed on & the Pakistan Gov’t has desecrated his memory by stealing our anthem, Dil Dil Pakistan. No one asked the Vital Signs if they could use DDP anthem in a Nawaz Sharif TV jingle made on taxpayer’s money. The Gov’t has mutilated Dil Dil Pakistan’s melody & arrangement to produce a hideous Multan Metro TV commercial. PM Sharif just got back from an Anti-Corruption summit in Davos & is still willfully ignorant about stealing tunes from artists & national Icons. Intellectual property theft is an international crime.”
