Anu Malik faces massive backlash for copying Israel’s national anthem
Bollywood has a long and illustrious history of plagiarism and this time around, Indian music director Anu Malik is under fire for copying Israel’s national anthem to compose ‘Mera Mulk Mera Desh’.
Twitter was beyond shocked when they spotted striking resemblances between the national anthem and Malik’s song from the 1996 film Diljale.
Needless to say, the dawning realisation that the famous Indian composer may have plagiarised the Israeli national anthem left social media into a frenzy.
Digging further in details, the similarity came to light after Artem Dolgopyat made history by winning Isreal's first Olympics gymnastics gold.
After the national anthem was played at the Tokyo Olympics, netizens flooded the internet with accusations directed towards Malik.
The keyboard warriors were quick to express their sentiments regarding the recent developments whilst keeping the humour element top-notch.

Anu Malik just simply didn't copy Israel national anthem in 1996 film diljale song. It needs years of research and analysis to find out which country isn't going to win medals for years. Visionary man.#AnuMalik— Prashant Shah (@prashshah) August 2, 2021
