Shafqat Amanat Ali pays tribute to Mohtama Gandhi by singing Bhajan 'Vaishnav Jan'
Indian composer, Vishal Dadlani took to Twitter and wrote: “My friend Shafqat Amanat Ali sings Vaishnav Jan, Gandhi Ji‘s favourite bhajan, and proves pretty conclusively, as he always does, that music is both, “ibaadat’ (worship) and “bhakti” together.”

The singing group helmed by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) paid a tribute to the innovative leader with a video mash-up featuring voices and tunes from across the world.
Artists from almost 124 countries, including Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Maldives, Nepal, China, Germany, Saudi Arabia, and Portugal were part of the rendition released by Indian PM Narendra Modi during the closing of the four-day Mahatma Gandhi International Sanitation Conference that was held in New Delhi.
The Indian Ministry of External Affairs, in a statement, said, “The result is an eclectic, colourful and rich rendition infused with the local flavour of the region.”
We must say this is a good initiative by the star in bringing the two nations closer and will help in building up friendly terms. What are your thoughts on this?
