The world's eyes are on India right now amid the alarming rise in COVID cases each day and the second wave is only getting deadlier by the day.
Most countries have been coming forward and are providing aid in the form of oxygen cylinders, donations etc.
Moved by the sufferings of the neighbouring country, even Pakistan has expressed its solidarity with India, in such tragic times.

Recently, singer and songwriter Imran Hashmi from Pakistan composed a song, Hum Tere Sath Hai. The singer was touched by the distressing situation in India and hence, penned the beautiful song to express his solidarity.
Noted journalist Geeta Mohan took to Twitter to share the video.

He told in one of the interviews, “I was shaken to the core as I watched on television the worsening situation in India and the destruction coronavirus was leaving in its path. It’s Ramadan, a time for compassion and I wanted to show our neighbours that we stand with them in their hour of need. I immediately started working on the song and penned the lyrics, which is about solidarity and hope,”
The song is now live on his YouTube Channel.
We are all aware of the constant disputes between Pakistan and India but Hashmi has always dreamt of bringing peace between both countries and this is his step towards making that happen.

He also said “I might be a random boy from Lahore, but I believe through my music I can spread the message of peace across the border and I’m also expecting them to reciprocate in the same way. I feel humbled to know my message of love and peace in my song is now being spread across the world and I am also glad to know that Pakistan is being seen as a peace-loving nation,”
Not just that, Hashmi had also written a song last year for the frontline workers. His song was named Tujhe Salam, and it was well-received across the globe.

Further mentioning that his recent song is based on harmony and brotherhood, Hashmi said, “We all are Indus people (Indus Valley civilisation), people of the same blood, same genome. If one of us gets hurt, all of us feel the same pain. This song is my humble tribute to show our neighbours that we are there for them, that we care, that we will never leave them during hard times.”
He also added "I believe it is very easy to spread hatred, but to spread love, it surely takes a lot of effort, and I’m doing my bit through my music,”
"My little effort may be just a drop in the ocean, but I’m sure that one day, even this little drop will show us how to love each other, just like when we were together. May God bless us all and help us through these difficult times,” Hashmi stated.
