Today is Pakistan’s Defense and Martyrs Day, a day when we honor the brave soldiers and great people who sacrifice their lives to protect our country. Every year on September 6th, we remember the sacrifices made during the 1965 war and other conflicts that kept our nation safe.

Flags at Half-Mast

We start the day by raising our national flag halfway down the flagpole. This shows that we are sad for the Great heroes we lost but also thankful for what they did And we know soldiers never die. They stay alive in the hearts of many.

Salutes and Prayers

On this Day we fire 31-gun salutes in Islamabad and 21-gun salutes in other big cities. We say special prayers at Faisal Mosque in Islamabad, asking for our country to do well and stay safe. Also  for the people in Indian illegally Occupied Kashmir to be free. Ameen.
