14 AUGUST 2021, FRIDAY
Today is August 14 and Pakistan is celebrating its 74th independence day. The main Independence Day ceremony is organized in Islamabad, where the national flag is hoisted at the Parliament and Presidency buildings. This is followed up by the national anthem and widely circulated and televised speeches by the President and Prime Minister of Pakistan.
The Indian Independence Act of 1947 gave birth to two nations, India and Pakistan, on August 15. However, Pakistan celebrates independence on 14 August and India is on 15 August.
Its been 74 years of the separation of India and Pakistan but still there is a dispute between countries and hatred among the peoples. The India-Pakistan dispute is now a global political concern as China and the USA are interfering on internal matters.
Happy Independence Day to Pakistan, we hope for the peace and prosperity of the country ahead.
