History

Pakistan had obtained its independence from the British Raj the 14th of August 1947. 23rd March
was originally supposed to commemorate the adoption of the first
constitution of Pakistan and thus the declaration of Pakistan
as a republic.

Later on when General Ayub Khan abrogated the constitution and declared
Martial Law, the Martial Law regime in order to justify celebrating the
national day changed it to commemorate the 1940 landmark, during which All-India
Muslim League
passed the Resolution"">Lahore Resolution which later cemented the formation of a
new nation in the sub-continent as Pakistan, even though it did not
mention Pakistan at all.

The Lahore Resolution was passed on 24th March 1940, although the Muslim League annual conference was held from 22nd -
24th March 1940.


Celebrations

The celebrations regarding the holiday include a full military and civilian parade in the
capital, Islamabad. These are presided by the President of Pakistan and are held
early in the morning. After the parade, the President confers national awards and
medals on the awardees at the Presidency.
Wreaths are also laid at the mausoleoums of Iqbal"">Muhammad Iqbal and Ali Jinnah"">Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
