Islamabad, Fri, 23 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 23 (ANI): Pakistan Day is being celebrated across the country and in Azad Jammu and Kashmir today to commemorate the passage of the Lahore Resolution, later called the Pakistan Resolution, which eventually led to the creation of Pakistan.

The celebrations were initiated by 31 gun salutes in Pakistan's capital city Islamabad whereas, 21 gun salutes took place in the provincial capitals, The Dawn reports.

Special prayers for the prosperity of Pakistan were held all over the country after the Fajr prayers.

In Lahore, the Pakistan Air Force's squad took charge at the Iqbal's mausoleum.

Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ibad and Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah along with other cabinet's officials paid tribute at the Quaid's mausoleum.

On March 23, 1940, a resolution was passed which negated the concept of United India and recommended the creation of an independent Muslim state.

It was on the basis of this resolution that in 1946 the Muslim League decided to go for one state for the Muslims, instead of two. (ANI)
