August 14 this year marks the 72nd Independence Day of Pakistan. A celebration ceremony is held at the Embassy of Pakistan in Beijing.
The event was celebrated with patriotic fervor. Homage was paid to all those who sacrificed during the independence struggle particularly Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, whose vision materialized in the shape of an independent homeland for Muslims of South Asia.
While addressing the Pakistani community, Ambassador Masood Khalid, congratulated them on the auspicious occasion and urged them to take pride in being citizens of an independent nation. He also mentioned that Pakistan has recently successfully completed the political transition.
The Ambassador also highlighted the significance of Pakistan-China ties which have grown from strength to strength and heralded China-Pakistan Economic Corridor as a beacon of prosperity and shared future.
The messages of the President and Prime Minister of Pakistan were also read out by the Ambassador. In his message, President Mamnoon Hussain said, “National days are celebrated with the purpose of educating society, particularly the new generation about the objective and the struggle for the attainment of Pakistan. I believe that the objective of developing the country and rekindling its glorious past can only be achieved if we work single mindedly keeping aside our personal interests.
