The whole nation stands united in celebrating its 70th Independence Day today on Sunday, with more enthusiasm, more pride. Celebrating the day with a revitalized spirit to protect and safeguard our homeland, our motherland against any evil and form a true realistic & actual Islamic welfare state as, envisioned by the ever honourable founding father Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
With the sunrise breaking into a new day, it all commenced with 31 gun salute in the federal and 21 gun salute in the provincial capitals, showing utter honour and respect to the Nation we proudly own and love whole-heartedly.
There were special prayers observed and offered for the prosperity, transparency and unity of the country, solidarity of the Muslim state and upright accomplishment of the long drawn strife of Kashmiris after Fajr prayers.
The main event of the day was the flag hoisting ceremony at the Convention Center in Islamabad where President Mamnoon Hussain was called on as the chief guest. He addressed the nation on the occasion, and promising a stronger and progressive development of the nation. Wishing every Pakistani a very happpy independence.
Flag hoisting ceremonies have been held all across the provincial capitals and district headquarters besides other important national institutions.
Apart from all the celebrations, all major public and private buildings, roads and avenues have been decorated with the colours of green and white, national flags, portraits of the national leaders, banners and buntings giving a festive look.
May our country proper and develop, eliminating all evil and threats.
