Preparations are in full swing to celebrate the Independence Day on August 14 (Saturday) in a befitting manner across Pakistan, including Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu & Kashmir.
Buildings are being decorated with national flags, buntings and lights. People have displayed national flags on their vehicles and rooftop of their houses.
Besides, stalls of national flag, buntings, caps, and children’s clothes doused in green and white colours have been setup along busy roadsides and at shops in every nook and corner of the country.
It is pertinent to mention that Independence Day celebrations will be marked with strict observance of Standard Operating Procedure as laid down by the National Command and Operation Centre to prevent spread of the coronavirus disease.
On Aug 10, the Lahore High Court (LHC) had termed the printing of the national flag in different colors and printing on shirts as a violation of the national dignity.
Justice Ali Baqir Najafi had issued a seven-page judgment on a petition against making buntings representing Pakistani flag in colors other than green.
