Commemorating the Day


Every year on August 14, the nation commemorates the country’s independence from British colonial rule in 1947.

This year marks the 73rd anniversary of Pakistan’s independence from British rule.

The Muslims launched innumerable movements against the British occupation of the Indian subcontinent but the dream of establishing Pakistan came true under the great leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

From the end of the World War I onwards, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah turned into a well-known pro-independence figure for Indian Muslims – driving so many people in his journey for a ‘separate’ Muslim state, today known as Pakistan.

After the Second World War, a fractured Britain no longer had the resources to keep ruling the Indian Subcontinent.

As the British rule drew to an end, Muslims demanded, for the sake of Islam, the formation of a separate homeland where they can live in a majority and are free to practice their religious beliefs.

Pakistan’s emergence in August 1947 is one of the biggest political achievements of modern Muslim history, resulted mainly from the endeavors of one and only, Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

A large credit goes to the founding father of the nation, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, who despite so many difficulties, struggled for the country’s independence from British rule and raised his voice for a separate Muslim homeland. The services he has provided to this nation, can’t be thanked in words.

Allama Muhammad Iqbal was another visionary who set in motion the idea of the separation of Muslims from India. In his presidential address on December 29, 1930, at Allahabad, Iqbal proposed the idea.

The Allahabad Address is now revolutionary in history. The name ‘Pakistan’ first appeared in a pamphlet called “Now or Never” in 1933. The partition was full of bloodshed andChoas.

Since the inception of the idea of a separate nation for Muslims, Hindu brutality escalated and there was great opposition to Jinnah and the rest of the Muslim leaders’ ideas to create a sovereign identity for Muslims.

Lineages and families were destroyed and tales of partitions are still collected and archived.

Ultimately, the British government had to announce that the principal of the division of British India into two independent states was accepted.

Viceroy Lord Mountbatten chose the 2nd anniversary of the Japan’s surrender in World War II as the date of power transfer.

August 14 was chosen as the date of ceremony of power transfer to the Muslim state, Pakistan.

On 14th of August 1947 a new dominion of Pakistan became independent. Mohammad Ali Jinnah sworn as the 1st Governor General of Pakistan.

The Pakistan Independence Day begins with a 31-gun salute in the federal capital and 21-gun salute in all four provincial headquarters.

Prayers are offered across the country, for its security, progress, development, and people’s welfare. Pakistan’s National Flag islifted at all private and public buildings.

The main highlight of the Pakistan Independence Day celebrations is the National Flag uplift ceremony at Jinnah Convention Centre in Islamabad, with honorable President and Prime Minister as the chief guests of the event.

They unfold the national flag as the participants stand and sing together the national anthem.The Pakistan Independence Day Parade, also known as the “Azadi Parade” is one of the major highlights of the day.

Held every year on 14 Aug, the Azadi parade pays tribute to the great sacrifices laid by courageous sons of soil that resulted in the creation of Pakistan and stamps the availability of young blood to remain steadfast for their freedom, no matter what or how! The people of Pakistan celebrate 14th August with utmost enthusiasm, zeal and enthusiasm.

Pakistani independence has been a hard-fought battle for democratic rights and freedom of religion. Have a break for the cause and honor those who died to free Pakistan.

Before 14th August, 1947 our ancestors lived under the yoke of British. The very identity, culture, religious values and the future of future generation lived under the yoke of British.

This day carries a long history and celebrating it means to acknowledge and own that very history. Look at present day Turkey.

What happened to them? There is confusion amongst the people of Turkey. They have been disconnected from their past.

Now they are trying to reconnect, because without establishing that fundamental civilizational connection they are unable to know who they really are.

14TH August has arrived once again so celebrate it with complete passion and patriotism to let the world know that we are still onewell-built nation, the nation that our great Leader Muhammad Ali Jinnah wanted us to be.The nation which is always ready to defend and sacrifice their lives to protect their land.

To experience the moment and to enjoy the spirit of freedom and independence we celebrate Independence Day. Another reason is to commemorate the sacrifices and lives we have lost in this struggle.

Besides, we celebrateit to remind us that this freedom that we enjoy is obtained the hard way. Apart from that, the celebration wakes up the nationalist inside us.

Along with celebration, the young generation is familiar with the struggles of the people who lived at that time.

Countries praise national days to cheer and celebrate the fruits of freedom and independence.

On August 14, Pakistanis honor the achievement of their struggle for an independent Muslim state.

According to the colors of the flag- white and green! Let’s stand together for unity, prosperity, and peace! Happy Independence Day Pakistan.Day reminds us that we are a brave and courageous nation, that continues to prospers in spite of challenges like terrorism and poverty.
