O land of Pakistan,
Each particle of yours
Is being illuminated by stars.
Even today your dust has been
Been brightened by the galaxy
These are the holy words of our national anthem and today, we celebrate Pakistan Day. 23rd of March is marked in red, as today Pakistan resolution was passed at the convention of All India Muslim League in 1940 and a remarkable day in history was made for the Dream of Allama Iqbal was coming to reality – the dream of having a separate nation.
A glorious day it was when the Muslims said ‘labaik’ for any sacrifices there would be to make the dream of an independent Pakistan a possible veracity. The Minar-e-Pakistan was built on the same place where this grand occasion took place. This monument reminds us of the determination and the zeal and zest of our forefathers and political leaders
Today, after 62 years have gone past, the Minar-e-Pakistan still stands tall in Iqbal Park, narrating the story of the independence struggle and sacrifices. It is still celebrated with great pride and rich feeling of patriotism swipes everyone’s heart.
Pakistan Day is a day of remembrance, a day of great pleasure, but it cannot be complete without the true spirit of patriotism and love for our homeland.
Our forefathers have gone…but, they made sure their upcoming generations survive…live an independent life…and make great progress…it is now our obligation to live what to the expectations they held from us. WE need to hold hands together, let go of discrimination and take our country through strides of success.
Long live Pakistan!
