Though Mr. Nasir is contesting as an independent candidate with the campaign naturally focusing on a single person; however the lyrics of the anthem do not praise or even mention Jibran opposed to the majority of the political songs which celebrate personalities instead of propagating an inclusive ideology.

"With a message to promote ideological politics, the anthem speaks about the struggles of the common man and highlights the injustices of current political incumbents while at the same time stressing on the need of self-propelled leadership from amongst the masses," the statement further read.

"We have been taught to seek change from the ruling elite whereas we need to be the change. We are the change."

The video of the song, Hum Mein Se #Aik, includes diverse participants belonging to different walks from life with different backgrounds. There are actors, activists, cultural icon, students, and athletes featured in the song all highlighting their struggles and triumphs as part of our society.
