Ending 20 years of war, the United States troops have completely withdrawn from Afghanistan after evacuating thousands of vulnerable Afghans.

Among those thousands of refugees is a popular Afghan singer, Sharafat Parwani, who is seen singing about his motherland in a viral video.

Sharif Hassan, New York Times reporter, has shared the video on Twitter and has translated the lyrics of the song too.

Translating the song, he wrote, “You're tired of anguish, my homeland. You're without song and melody, my homeland. You're pained but without medicine, my homeland.”

“Sharafat Parwani, a popular singer who was recently evacuated, sings the song somewhere in a military base or refugee camp in the US,” Hassan added.

Parwani is seen sitting with a bunch of other evacuated Afghan men at an unknown location, which has left netizens emotional.

Here’s what some of Twitter users had to say about the video.
