Faisal Habib, KTL Acceptance Lead celebrating Pakistan Independence Day.
2022 marks the 75th Independence Day for Pakistan. This national holiday is observed every August 14th - on Sunday, where it commemorates the day when Pakistan achieved independence and was declared a sovereign nation after the end of the British Raj in 1947.
The Pakistan Movement was crucial in the existence of present-day Pakistan. The Pakistan Movement aimed for the creation of an independent Muslim state by division of the north-western region of South Asia. The event was brought forth by the Indian Independence Act 1947 in which the British Indian Empire gave independence to the Dominion of Pakistan (later the Islamic Republic of Pakistan).
Faisal shared, as August progresses the ambience and morale of the people in Pakistan changes. Regardless of age, everyone participates in the celebrations, and he commented, “Independence is happiness, and it is celebrated every day”.
“Pakistan’s national flag is hoisted on public, private buildings, residences, and monuments at dawn. Official buildings, including Parliament House, are decorated and colourfully lit. The prime minister and president address and congratulate the nation and talk about the day’s significance. Streets and houses are decorated with candles, oil lamps and pennants. Firework shows are put together on the eve of Independence Day.”
Faisal looks forward to spending time with his family and friends on this glorious day to celebrate and share good times together.
Happy Pakistan Independence Day on Sunday from all of us at KTL!
