Pakistan Day

111

Amid the 48th session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers, the nation is all set to celebrate Pakistan’s day with patriotic zeal and fervor. The dignitaries participating in the 48th Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will also witness the Pakistan Day Parade as Guests of Honour. In retrospect, the day is being observed to commemorate the passage of the historic Lahore Resolution on this day in 1940, under which the Muslims of the sub-continent set the agenda of a separate homeland for themselves. The day will dawn with a thirty-one-gun salute in the federal capital and twenty-one gun salute in provincial capitals. Special prayers will be offered in mosques after Fajar prayers for the progress and prosperity of the country.  The national flag will be hoisted on major government buildings.   Various organizations and departments have planned a number of activities including seminars, conferences, and discussion programs to highlight the historical significance of Pakistan Day. The main feature of the day will be the grand military parade in Islamabad where contingents of the three armed forces and the security forces will conduct a march past while fighter planes will present aerobatic maneuvers.  The march of different floats depicting various aspects of the culture of different provinces is also part of the parade. Indeed this is a historic moment written in the history of one of the most resilient nations that has become one of the key actors in the geopolitical arena of the globe. Nevertheless, Pakistan day seeks a promise from the nation to contribute to progress, prosperity, and sustainable development.
