The nation is celebrating Pakistan Day on Wednesday with a commitment to ensure progress, prosperity and a strong defence of the country.
The day is observed to commemorate the passage of the historic Lahore Resolution on 23rd March in 1940, under which Muslims of the sub-continent set the agenda of a separate homeland for themselves.
