The Pakistan Resolution Day is being celebrated throughout the country with traditional zeal and enthusiasm today (Friday).
Earlier in the day a military parade was held to mark Pakistan Day at Shakarparian in Islamabad.

The day dawned with a 31-gun salute in Islamabad while provincial capitals welcomed the day with 21-gun salutes. Special prayers were offered in mosques after Fajr prayers for the progress, prosperity and solidarity of the country and national flag was hoisted at all major government buildings.
