To mark Pakistan’s 75th Independence, Punjab Arts Council in collaboration with All Pakistan Private Schools Management Association, organised an event where the national song was sung, tableaus were presented and a speech competition also took place.
Chairman Pakistan Green Task Force Dr Jamal Nasir was the chief guest of the programme. He stated that our Independence Day was the day of renewal of the pledge to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state.
"The establishment of Pakistan is a blessing for the Muslims of the subcontinent," he added.
He said that our forefathers sacrificed their lives for an independent state, therefore, it was significant to make the younger generation aware of the freedom movement. Moreover, he congratulated all the children who participated in the competitions.
Director of Arts Council Waqar Ahmad, speaking on the occasion, said that the Pakistan Movement was the spirit of freedom and sacrifice. "We can brighten the country's future by realising the value of freedom, and our first and last priority should be the stability of Pakistan," he said.
