ISLAMABAD: Defence and Martyrs Day will be observed on Wednesday (tomorrow) to pay tributes to the martyrs and Ghazis and reaffirm commitment to defend the motherland against all threats.

The day will dawn with 31-gun salute at the Federal Capital and 21-gun salute at provincial capitals.
Special prayers will be offered after Fajr in mosques for the progress and prosperity of the country and independence of illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir from the cruel clutches of India.
Fateha and Quran Khawani will also be held for the martyrs. In connection with the day, Radio Pakistan will broadcast special programs.
