14th August, the Independence Day marks one the most important days in the life of every Pakistani citizen and in order to remember the importance of freedom, the nation celebrates the day with utmost zeal. Officially the day is started with hoisting the national flag at Presidency and Parliament House followed by a 31 Gun Salute in Federal Capital and 21 Guns Salute in all provincial capitals.
But the nation starts celebrating the day at 12 am (pre-celebrations start half hour early). Islamabad is the capital of Pakistan and a residence of people from Gilgit to Gwadar. Pakistanis here are celebrating with fireworks and decorations all over the city.
However it was observed that although everyone had decorated, Ufone and PEMRA building were not showing any signs of happiness.
Here are some stills from the federal capital.
On this happy eve we should remember the sacrifices of those whose lost a lot for getting a free homeland for us and those who are still losing a lot to keep it free.
As Quaid said
With faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile that you cannot achieve.
Happy Independence Day from INCPak.
