Here’s how Pakistanis on Twitter are reacting to the track:
As a native speaker, Zayn Malik's Urdu accent can be really grating… is the representation worth it?
Yes. Let the boy sing tum chaudhvin ka chaand ho, ya aftaab ho
jo bhi ho tum khuda ki qasam, lajawaab ho, so that the world can hear it

How dare Zayn Malik attempt to sing ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chand.’ Mohammed Rafi died twice because of him.
