The Pakistan Day military parade scheduled to be held today (Thursday) has been postponed due to weather conditions.
On March 23, a military parade is held annually. The event is at the center of events honoring the 1940 Lahore Resolution, which demanded the establishment of a separate country for Muslims living under British control in India.
The parade, which was scheduled to take place at the President’s House, will instead take place on March 25, according to the Presidency.
Earlier, the Pakistan Army decided to hold the annual parade of the armed forces on Pakistan Day on a limited scale, joining the government’s austerity drive that aims at warding off the economic crisis.
