14 August 1947 is remembered as the independence day of Pakistan from British. The day when a new country rose to the world map and changed the course of world politics. But this freedom was gained not earned under the leadership of Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah because of his hard work and dedication we gained a homeland. The basic reason behind working hard for Pakistan was that we needed a piece of land where we can practice our religion Islam without any fear and pressure but it doesn’t mean that there will be any hardships on the minorities as they are free to go to their sacred place with dignity and respectfully. As it can be noted from the flag as which contains two colors green and white.
The green color represents the Muslims living in and the white color represents the minorities living in it. After the creation of Pakistan, it faced a lot of challenges which made its survival very difficult but it survived every situation. The independence day is celebrated across the country with full zest and zeal. On this day a grand parade is organized in which all top government officials and top military leadership take part.
On this day it is very common that people greet each other by sending texts like ‘we wish you a very happy independence day. May our country prosper more’ ‘ Happy independence day. Long Live Pakistan’, ‘ May God Protect our Motherland, Happy independence day’ These are some of the messages that people usually use to congratulate each other. On this day we should pay tribute to those who sacrificed themselves for our tomorrow by doing our deeds honestly by proving ourselves responsible citizens so that we will be able to contribute to the prosperity of Pakistan.
I am proud to be a Pakistani citizen.
