Independence Day & it’s Tradition
The 14th of August, Pakistan Independence Day, may be regarded a double day of liberty. Muslim Indians battled for independence from British control and then re-armed to fight for their own nation-state, Pakistan, which was previously part of the Indian subcontinent. During the British Raj, the Crown took full authority when the British put down the Indian Rebellion of 1857. This lasted until 1947, when Pakistan gained independence.
Pakistanis are ecstatic to celebrate their country’s independence. The day’s colours are the green and white of the Pakistani flag. Flags of the country may be seen everywhere, and fireworks displays are popular. Across the country, flag raising rituals are performed at both governmental and private organisations. To commemorate the occasion, schools and colleges hold declamation contests, art exhibitions, national song recitals, and sports marathons. There are also special programmes planned to commemorate this day.
The president and prime minister give special remarks honouring the nation’s forebears who gave their lives in defence of the country. The district and municipal governments actively organise and implement events to demonstrate patriotism and liven up the day. Citizens paint their faces, wear Pakistani flags, dress up in extravagant costumes, ignite fireworks, and celebrate everything Pakistani.
