The world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa, in Dubai was lit up with the colours of Pakistani national flag Friday evening as Pakistanis across the world rejoiced nation's 73rd Independence Day with traditional zeal and fervour.
"The display of the Pakistani flag on the tallest and most famous skyscraper took place at 8:45pm [local time] highlighting the strong friendly relations the UAE and Pakistan share," according to Khaleej Times.
Dubai has a sizeable Pakistani community, many of whom cheered as the world's tallest skyscraper was lit up with Pakistani flag.
Another iconic building in the UAE was lit up with the colours of Pakistan's flag. ADNOC’s building in Abu Dhabi lit up with the colours of the flag.
Earlier, President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan had also sent a congratulatory message to President Arif Alvi.
Every year, Pakistanis from all walks of life celebrate Independence Day with renewed zeal and fervour. But unlike the past, the Covid-19 pandemic has put a damper on the celebrations this year.
Despite that, various political, religious, and government organisations, and the public at large, have decided to celebrate the occasion with the same enthusiasm by following the coronavirus standard operating procedures (SOPs) suggested by the government.
