In Pictures: Your Favorite Celebs on Pakistan Day
Pakistan day is so much more than just a day off from work and school. Unlike the independence day, no one in the entire country buys national flags, badges, and other accessories. However, ample national events are carried out on 23rd March, but a vast populace does not pay much heed and rather, carries on with sleep.
Pakistan day is celebrated throughout the country on 23rd March to pay homage to Muhammad Ali Jinnah and other freedom fighters for presenting the first resolution that demanded a separate homeland for Muslims in east and west regions of the Sub-continent at Minar e Pakistan, Lahore.
Where a lot of people chose to stay home and spent the day with family, few actually went out under the sun to celebrate Pakistan day with uber-enthusiasm oozing absolute patriotism. Our favorite celebrities attended parades and spent time watching jet shows and disciplined marches.
