Pakistan Observes National Day

Kathmandu: Pakistan’s Embassy in Kathmandu marked the country’s national day on Monday. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, only the flag hoisting ceremony held on this occasion.

The day commemorates the Lahore Resolution adopted on March 23, 1940, in which the Muslim leaders of the sub-continent set the agenda of a separate homeland. On March 23, 1956, the country also adopted its first constitution, making Pakistan the world’s first Islamic republic.

Pakistan’s Ambassador to Nepal Mazhar Javed hoisted the national flag to the tune of the country’s national anthem. According to a press release issued by the embassy, the other events have been postponed. The embassy had organized a musical concert on this occasion.
