Penned down by Narsimha Mehta in the 15th century, the singers recreated this Gujrati hymn and turned out to be the best way to honor their leader on his 150th birthday!
Apart from the medley, the rendition of “Vaishnava Jan” in the soulful voice of Shafqat Amanat has gone viral on the internet and is something that you want to listen to over and over again!
Watch the video below!
Considering the political situation that is prevailing between the two countries these days, this gesture from Shafqat Amanat was lauded by the Indians and diffused the tension a bit between the two nations!
And it turned out to be the most heartwarming renditions of the Gujrati hymn to many Indians!
This has got to be one of the most heartwarming renditions of Vaishnav Jan To. Watching Shafqat Amanat Ali sing is an added bonus 🙂

Because he’s the best!
Maybe I am biased, or maybe I am not. But I liked Pakistani singer Shafqat Amanat Ali's rendering at 3.05 the best. Listen to the global Vaishnav Jan-to. https://t.co/gBsoapg1Ga
