The day of greatness, Pakistan marks the 22nd anniversary of its nuclear tests today with great zeal and fervor. May 28 is celebrated as Youm-e-Takbeer across the country every year with great enthusiasm.
The day marks the country’s success to make its way to the global nuclear club and it is also celebrated as National Science Day to highlight Pakistan’s achievements in the field of science. Pakistan became the seventh nation to possess nuclear weapons and the first in the Muslim world.
On this day in 1998, Pakistan conducted five successful nuclear tests in the north-western Chaghi district of Balochistan in reply to continued aggressive posturing by its neighbor, India.
