Today is our country’s Independence Day. I am lucky to be born in a free country. Before independence, Pakistan and India were one country, ruled by the British. We were considered second class citizens in our own country and were denied many privileges of free people.
The date, 14th August 1947 was written in blood of people of both countries. There was a lot of needless bloodshed and for many years people could not forget the agony of those days.
The cost of independence was high but now we can live as free people. Freedom is something that is valued above almost everything in life.
I would like to share a few photos of how we celebrate our Independence Day
Our National Anthem;
This anthem has been sung by many of our famous singers as a tribute to Pakistan.
