A video of a group of students in Lahore, Pakistan, singing a poem penned by poet Bismil Azimabadi 'Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna' ahead of November 29 students' solidarity march has gone viral on social media. With the help of the song, students are urging people to join the march.

The 50-second-long video posted a Pakistan-based journalist shows students demanding freedom to read among others. The video also shows a woman singing an important verse of the poem.

The students' solidarity march was planned and organised by the Progressive Students’ Collective (PSC) who also took to Twitter to share videos of the same.
