Independence Day, observed annually on 14 August, is a national holiday in Pakistan. It commemorates the day when Pakistan achieved independence and was declared a sovereign state following the end of the British Raj in 1947.
Every year on August 14, cities and villages across Pakistan come alive in a celebration of independence and national pride.
The Pakistan Movement or Tahrik-e-Pakistan (Urdu: تحریکِ پاکستان – Taḥrīk-i-Pākistān) was a political movement in the first half of the 20th century that aimed for and succeeded in the creation of the Dominion of Pakistan from the Muslim-majority areas of British India.
