Pakistan Day was being celebrated today on March 23 to commemorate the ‘Lahore Minto Park’ Resolution in the year 1940.
Pakistan Day observed as a public holiday across the country.
The Lahore Resolution of 1940 is also known as the ‘Pakistan Resolution‘ that ultimately led to the formulation of Pakistan.
However, amidst the ongoing new COVID-19 strain across the country, the celebrations will be held across the country virtually by different public and private departments.
History Of Pakistan Day – March 23
It was at Lahore in March 1940, that the Muslim League took the decision that split India into two nations. They agreed not to accept any plan for India which failed to give Muslims an independent state in those parts of India where there were more Muslims than Hindus – such as East Bengal and the North-West.
On March 23rd, 1940, the Lahore Resolution was passed which rejected the concept of a United India and proposed the creation of an independent state for Muslims, even though it did not actually mention Pakistan at all.
