Proving that music really does transcend borders, a video clip of Indian and Pakistani soldiers dancing along to Sidhu Moose Wala from their separate check posts on the Line of Control (LoC) has gone viral on Twitter.
The video showed Indian soldiers playing Bambiha Bole by Indian singer Sidhu Moose Wala at a military post on the Line of Control. The soldiers sing along and dance to the song, and wave at the Pakistani military post across from them. The Pakistani soldiers on the other side wave back and seem to be enjoying the music as well.
A Twitter account that first shared the video captioned it and said, “Problem is not with the people, problem is with politics,” and many on Twitter seem to share the sentiment. The video has been reshared multiple times and people are acknowledging the fact that politics divides people, while music is a uniting force.
Sidhu Moose Wala was an Indian musician and politician whose music was beloved on both sides of the border. On May 29 2022, he was assassinated after his car was ambushed by unidentified gunmen. The Punjabi rapper was hit by 24 bullets and died on the way to the hospital.
