Essay on celebration of independence day of pakistan
A few days ago, I saw some posts on social media Facebook and I came to know that some self-declared philosophers are of the view that whether or not you celebrate Independence Day on August 14 or 15 , it does not matter much because Pakistanis are not mentally independent yet. Such posts, as an intellectual norm, are usually not read by serious people. So, I decided to write a blog on this Independence Day , for people of Pakistan, and especially for Pakistani social media intellectuals to discuss three points. One, why do people celebrate days?
Independence is the blessing. Independence is the great gift of God. It enables people to live life as per their choice. To mark 73rd Independence day Pakistan various essays, speeches, debates, tabloids etc are held. Independence is the state of being free in your life from unnecessary restrictions. You are free when there is no restriction upon you in your way of spending your life. It is the state in which an individual is free in the way of practicing his religious beliefs, cultural values and other ways of life.
It commemorates the day when Pakistan achieved independence and was declared a sovereign state following the end of the British Raj in Pakistan came into existence as a result of the Pakistan Movement , which aimed for the creation of an independent Muslim state in the north-western regions of British India via partition. In the Islamic calendar , the day of independence coincided with Ramadan 27, the eve of which, being Laylat al-Qadr , is regarded as sacred by Muslims.
Streets in different cities and regions in Pakistan, especially in the capital Islamabad, were decorated with the green and white colors of the Pakistani flag as the country celebrates its 74th Independence Day on Aug. According to Indian newspaper The Tribune, vendors in Islamabad have been preparing their stalls with flags, badges, bandanas and other various items related to the celebrations for days. Various social events, from sports competitions to seminars, from military parades to marches, were organized throughout the country. During the celebration in Pakistan, all precautions were taken in connection with the coronavirus, which has infected more than , people in the country. Hand sanitizers were available at the entrance to the Independence Day celebration areas and participants had to wear masks and adhere to social distancing.
