The nation is all set to celebrate Pakistan Day today (Tuesday) with renewed commitment to work hard for the progress and stability of the country. However, due to ongoing inclement weather and rain forecast for the next two days in the federal capital, the Pakistan Day parade has been rescheduled. The Joint Services Pakistan Day Parade will now be held on 25th March, 2021 as per programme and timings already specified, said the Inter-Services Public Relations in a statement on Monday. The day marks the adoption of the historic Lahore Resolution on this day in 1940 that provided a framework for realisation of the goal of a separate homeland for the Muslims of South Asia. The day will dawn with 31-gun salute in the federal capital and 21-gun salute in provincial capitals. Special prayers will be offered in mosques after Fajr prayers for the progress, prosperity and solidarity of the country. It will be a public holiday. National flag will be hoisted atop all major government buildings. In view of the third wave of Covid-19, all the events in connection with the day will be held ensuring compliance to standard operating procedures (SOPs). An investiture ceremony will be held at Aiwan-e-Sadar in the afternoon where President Arif Alvi will confer awards and medals on personalities for their outstanding contribution in different fields. Radio Pakistan and PTV will broadcast special programmes to highlight the significance of the day and pay tribute to the leaders of Pakistan Movement.
