The scheduled parade on the occasion of Pakistan Day was postponed till March 25 due to inclement weather.
A statement issued by the Pakistan Army’s Public Relations Department (ISPR) said, “The Pakistan Day Parade has been rescheduled due to inclement weather and rain forecast for the next two days.”
“The Joint Service Pakistan Day Parade will now be scheduled for March 25, 2021, and the times have already been clarified,” the statement said.
It may be recalled that during the Tehreek-e-Pakistan, March 23, 1940, was the day when Maulvi Fazal Al-Haq presented a resolution for an independent Pakistan under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, and on this occasion, we as a nation celebrate March 23 every year as Pakistan Day.
The Pakistan Armed Forces Resolution demonstrates the parade and defense capabilities of Pakistan, which is called the Pakistan Day Parade.
The colorful Pakistan Day celebrations showcase the skills of the land, air, and naval forces, as well as Pakistan’s defense equipment.
It may be recalled that last year the Pakistan Day parade was canceled due to coronavirus while in 2019 the parade was held with national spirit.
Pakistan Day Parade 2019 was attended by troops from Pakistan as well as friendly countries China, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Bahrain, Brunei, and Azerbaijan while Chinese and Turkish air forces also participated.
The parade was attended by President Dr. Arif Alvi as the Chief Guest and Prime Minister of Malaysia Mahathir Mohamad as the Guest of Honor. General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chiefs of Pakistan Air Force and Pakistan Navy, and other officials were also present.
