Pakistan Day commemorates the passing of Lahore Resolution, under which a separate nation for the Muslims of the British Indian empire demanded by Muslim League was passed on March 23, 1940.
Every year the nation celebrates the day with extraordinary zeal.
The armed forces of the country also hold a parade in Islamabad to mark the occasion.
A special feature of last year’s parade was the participation of the People’s Liberation Army of China, Saudi Special Force contingent and Turkish Janissary Military band.
