History of Pakistan’s Independence Day
When the British Raj ended in 1947, Pakistan became an independent country and a sovereign state. Pakistan was created as a result of the Pakistan Movement, which was spearheaded by the All-India Muslim League under the direction of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and sought to divide the northwestern region of South Asia into separate Muslim states.
The Indian Independence Act of 1947, which granted the Dominion of Pakistan (later the Islamic Republic of Pakistan), which includes West Pakistan and East Pakistan, independence from the British Indian Empire, was the catalyst for the event.
The day of independence fell on Ramadan 27, which according to the Islamic calendar is a holy day for Muslims, on its eve.

How to Celebrate Independence Day More Responsibly
Even though we all celebrate this day of independence with the utmost enthusiasm, most of us have a tendency to forget the journey and ideals that gave rise to it. We forgot the true meaning of this freedom and instead of celebrating it with responsibility, we wreak havoc in the cities.
5 Things You Should Not Do This Independence Day
There are a few things that we should not do while celebrating independence day at any cost:
- Blocking Roads Unnecessarily
Young people, more frequently than not, assemble throngs on the streets to hold Independence Day celebrations. Roads become obstructed as a result, and traffic bottlenecks develop. People should designate specific sites for festivities with the authorization of authorities rather than obstructing highways needlessly. Let’s make an effort to be more courteous of our countrymen’s time and avoid causing any traffic snarls.
- Over Speeding and Performing Stunts On Motorcycles
Speeding too fast is risky. Period. You are not entitled to drive or ride at possibly catastrophic speeds on the highways just because it is Independence Day.
Stunts on a public road are not only risky but also potentially fatal. If such thoughts occur to you, make the right decision and decide to celebrate at home with friends and family.
- Overcrowding The Public Places
Yes, people enjoy going to public places to take in the Aug. 14 festivities with their neighbors. Perhaps all you want to do is window shop or take a leisurely stroll in a nearby park while eating your favorite ice cream. However, given that we are currently dealing with a fatal pandemic, we should be mindful of our movements and ensure that we are not crowding an area.
- Playing Loud Music and Using Musical Instruments
When people play loud music, national anthems, etc., to celebrate August 14, it becomes louder and more annoying on the streets and in the homes. Be considerate of one another and try to avoid disturbing your neighbors while celebrating.
Similarly, playing loud musical instruments on roads can get very frustrating and disturbing for the patients or elderly people in the nearby hospitals or homes.
- Tearing and Disrespecting Mini Flags
What appears to be a piece of paper or fabric is really a miniature flag of your nation. Keep in mind the sacrifices that were made and never lose sight of who you are. This is unquestionably the most crucial factor to consider and should be taken care of by everyone.
In the end, although it is a day of celebration, we should behave more responsibly and should act as mature citizens. This is our country and our forefathers did a lot of struggle for this homeland, we must treat it as a precious asset and set an example for the next generations.
