This day commemorates the passing of the Lahore Resolution on March 23, 1940, as well as the implementation of the first constitution of Pakistan, which took place on the same day in 1956, both of which took place on March 23, 1940. This day is particularly notable because, following its transition from the Dominion of Pakistan to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Pakistan became the world’s first Islamic republic, making it a national holiday in Pakistan.
The now modern-day country of Pakistan has been engaged in a long-running struggle for independence, and prominent Pakistani figures have been fighting for independence for decades. According to a widely accepted notion known as ‘The Two-Nation Theory,’ Muslim and Hindu cultures, languages, and customs were distinct, and hence should be kept apart in order to maintain the ideology of each respective community. The Muslim League, a political organization, aimed for the separation of the country and the establishment of a Muslim nation. This was the first formal political statement that called for the formation of an independent nation, and it was issued in Lahore, Pakistan in 1940. This played an important role in the establishment of Pakistan a few years later. Pakistan was able to form and prosper as a result of the tireless efforts of many prominent Pakistani personalities throughout history.
The national holiday of Pakistan is marked by a few major celebrations that take place every year. The primary celebration is held in Islamabad, and it involves military and civilian parades as well as cultural performances. The President of Pakistan is also present, as he presents military and civilian medals to those who have made significant contributions to the country. There will be a commemoration of Pakistan’s founder, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, which will include the laying of wreaths, singing, and praying.
Not only is Pakistan Day celebrated in Pakistan, but there are enormous celebrations taking place all around the world on this day. Every year, the largest Pakistan Day Parade in North America is conducted in New York City to commemorate the occasion. Numerous Pakistani groups in Canada also organize celebrations and events to commemorate this significant occasion. Because Pakistan Day is a national holiday, people normally spend the day with their friends and family to commemorate Pakistan’s long and illustrious history!
