Safai Anthem- Another Bravura Effort to Spread Awareness about Cleanliness!



There is an urgent need to spread awareness about cleanliness and hygiene in the country, and Hoga Saaf Pakistan has been at the forefront with its nationwide initiative, working at various fronts for this cause. Taking the same spirit forward, they came out with their Safai Anthem that tells us how important it is to appoint the habit of cleanliness in our lives. It is after all the need of the hour to play our part in keeping our country clean and free of pollution.


The video for the anthem opens, and hopeful music begins playing on the screen as superstar Fahad Mustafa appears on the screen. He makes his way through a street that is scattered with trash. Just then, current music sensation and heartthrob Asim Azhar walks in from behind the sun and hits the first notes of the song in his melodious voice. He tells the people that once you choose to shine, everything else will shine with you. The lyrics are a motivation for the masses to stop waiting for things to happen and take the matter in their own hands to work towards the cause of cleanliness, which is the ultimate need of the hour.

The video shows people coming out of their houses and stepping onto the streets. Hundreds of citizens, along with Hoga Saaf Pakistan’s representatives, join hands and begin cleaning the streets. There are kids who aren’t shying away from getting their hands dirty because if that’s what it takes to live in a clean environment, they are more than prepared to do it. After all, it is a moral imperative of the younger generation to keep their houses and their cities clean.

There’s a particular portion of the video where a man throws a plastic bottle out of his car on the road while he’s standing at a stop sign. Just then Fahad, who’s one of the people who are waiting for the signal to go green, gets off his bike and picks up the bottle. He throws it in a nearby trashcan and gives the man a disapproving look.

The anthem also features prominent journalist Iqrar-ul-Hassan who joins Fahad Mustafa in cleaning a heavily polluted street. It’s not just the streets and localities that are in need of the cleaning. The video shows other public places such as parks, beaches that are polluted by us because of our ignorance.

Another top shot in the anthem’s video shows Shaniera Akram running on a beach that’s littered as far as the eye can see. The beach is then cleaned by her and Fahad Mustafa along with other people. The video also shows teachers telling different ways to maintain cleanliness to their students.

Prominent cities of Pakistan including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, and the Northern Areas are also showcased in the anthem’s video. There are several sweeping shots of Karachi’s famous landmarks and rooftops where Asim Azhar is seen singing, overlooking the city. The anthem also features vocals by popular singer Aima Baig.

At its heart, the anthem is an effort to get the citizens of our country to keep their surroundings and environment clean and telling others to do the same. The anthem surely struck a chord with the audiences, inspiring them to take the matters of cleanliness in their own hands.

The tech tycoon has been the founder of three tech business ventures and has managed to achieve so much at such a young age. And, he has given back his learning and knowledge by motivating, educating, and mentoring people to be successful in life.

Here are some motivational thoughts by the Forbes awarded entrepreneur Muneeb Mushtaq to get you motivated and beat the Monday blues:


  1. Get rid of the useless and negative clutter in your life


Muneeb Mushtaq suggests that it is important to subtract some of the unnecessary things from life to realise how insignificant they are. He advises us to get away from the insignificant and negative clutter in order to see an immediate positive impact. Worrying about what others think of us, trying to please everyone are some of the unimportant things we need to remove as soon as possible. According to him “When you remove what’s negative, it’ll add more space for what’s POSITIVE”!


  1. Don’t wait, just take the first step


The successful entrepreneur recommends us not to wait for other people or for the perfect moment to do what you have always wanted to do. There will never be a perfect time, situation or circumstances that would make you start working on your dreams. He advises us to just take the first step and get started.


  1. Failure is the opportunity to start over again, more wisely


The dynamic businessman is also of the view that failure provides an invaluable experience that makes it more likely to get success the next time around. He explains: “Till the time you don’t give up, the failures are just learning experiences, helping you to eventually succeed.”


  1. Respect the competition


Muneeb Mushtaq also shares this motivational thought that competition should be embraced and should be used as a driving force to push you further rather than fearing it. Competition is also a validation that there is a massive market and opportunity in the space to grow further.


  1. Change is important

Another motivating thought from Muneeb Mushtaq is that if you want change in life, then you should also be willing to change. He says, “If you are not willing to change, don’t expect your life to either”.
