The Westminster Abbey, which was founded in 960 AD, organised a special evensong in connection with the National Day of Pakistan, as per tradition.
The special service was held on the eve of March 23.
Westminster Abbey is a royal church in London and a world heritage site with over a thousand years of history.
Pakistani High Commissioner to United Kingdom Mohammad Nafees Zakaria represented Pakistan at the special service.
He was received by Dean of Westminster Dr John Hall. The Reverend Mark Birch led the evensong. The evensong was sung by the world-renowned choir of Westminster Abbey.
Special prayers were offered for the progress and prosperity of Pakistan and its people as well as for the continued friendship between the two countries. A large number of British citizens and church goers attended the event, besides the high commission’s officials.
The highlight of the occasion was that Pakistan’s flag was flying for the whole day on top of the north tower of Westminster Abbey.
