It was August 14 when the Muslims of the subcontinent were able to get a land of their own, where they could live life according to their religion.

People from all over the country have different ways of celebrating Independence Day. Some people dress up in green and white to show their love for the country while others visit national monuments like Minar-e-Pakistan and Quaid-e-Azam’s mausoleum. Many people also use this opportunity to meet up with relatives and give gifts to their loved ones.

Although the people of Pakistan celebrate the Independence Day with patriotism and great passion, they should remember what Jinnah’s dream was and they should always question themselves on whether they have made this country according to his dreams or if they have forgotten the reason for the formation of Pakistan.
