Pakistan Day is also known as Resolution or Republic Day of Pakistan. It is celebrated on March 23rd every year and a public holiday is announced nationwide. On this day in 1940, the declaration of independence of Pakistan was presented and it was written and prepared by Muhammad Zafarullah Khan. Later on the same day in 1956, the first constitution of Pakistan was adopted and made Pakistan the world’s first Islamic Republic.
In India, 23rd March is declared Martyr’s day owing to the deaths of great freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev Thapar, and Shivaram Rajguru. In 1931, three of them were executed by hanging in Lahore. They are looked upon not only in India but also in Pakistan because they fought for the rights of the people of the subcontinent and laid their lives for them.
