Only thing I like about Defense Day

During the 1965 Indo-Pak war, Noor Jehan sang a song that gives you goose bumps no matter where you are from. The song was: Eh puttar hattaN te nahi vikde. Go ahead, google it, and listen to the audio.

It is still played by Pakistani TV channels every year to commemorate the war and to invoke love for the armed forces.

What not many people notice is how anti-war the lyrics are: These sons [dying in wars] are not sold on shops, what are you looking for in the market?
