Netizens targeted Bollywood music composer Anu Malik for copying music from the Israeli National Anthem for one of his songs in 1996.

Netizens on Sunday had a field day with memes when Israel finished on top of the podium at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics. Artem Dolgopyat, Israel gymnast, won the second-ever gold for his country and as the national anthem played during the felicitation ceremony, Bollywood music composer Anu Malik started getting trolled on social media. People surmised that the Israeli national anthem sounded similar to Malik’s track Mera Mulk Mera Desh in the movie Diljale. Earlier, when Malik was asked whether he ‘lifted music’ for his songs, he had said he was inspired and that can’t be called ‘copying’.

Many people targeted Malik for copying the music with minor modifications. Some are saying that Malik got the national anthem of another country to copy.
