A 21-gun cross-border salute for the (retd.) major

Its dream of an Akhand Bharat may forever remain a dream, but the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has managed, in a manner of speaking, to keeps folks laughing on both sides of the border.

The Pakistani qawal singer, Bankay Mian, pays compliment to Jaswant Singh.

Koi to hai joh wahan hamare tarane gaa riya hai/ Hamare badon ko wahan yaad kiya jaa riya hai/ Naam hai uska Jaswant Singh aur fan hai who Quaid-e-Azam ka,

Quaid-e-Azam ke peeche usne wahan phatta bol le liya hai/ Isi chakkar main uski party ke thekedaron ne use ghar jaane ka nyota de diya hai,

To Jassu Bhaiyya aap toh ab zara Bankay Mian ki aake qawwali sun le/Aur apne apne naam ki 21 gunon ki salami sun le.”
