My childhood memories of 23rd march are filled with joy when we used to wake up early morning to watch the Pakistan day parade. At that time, the parade used to be open for common citizens and anyone could easily watch the parade live.
Those who raise a question: ’Why we should celebrate 23rd March’?
A simple answer to them: ‘Why not? Why not to salute to our heroes who struggled for Pakistan and sacrificed to protect ideology of Pakistan?’
It is very unlucky of us that we can celebrate foreign festive days like valentine day but cannot give honour to our national days. There is need to aware our people about our heroes, about those personalities who have done a lot for Pakistan and Pakistanis.
The importance of 23rd march 1940 can never be denied in history of Pakistan because this was the day on which 14th August 1947, creation of Pakistan, was based. The celebrations of 23rd March every year used to had a full military and civilian parade in the capital i.e. Islamabad.
Another Pakistan day is coming up. Its been 77 years since this resolution was passed. This year 23rd March will be special because Turkish and Chinese troops are going to participate in this.
Lets project Pakistan this year again..lets defeat terrorism again…lets be happy again and lets show the world how great Pakistan is.
