Happy Independence Day to the whole Nation from LHCL
Pakistan Zindabad! Happy Pakistan Independence Day to our friends and teammates!
On August 14, 1947, Pakistan was declared a sovereign nation, granted freedom from its British colonizers, and given territory free of Indian influence where they would be allowed to flourish as a Muslim state.
Pakistan is celebrating the anniversary of its independence in much the same way we celebrate our own independence here in the United States: parades, fireworks, flags, and a lot of fun. Pakistanis commonly greet each other with the phrase “Pakistan Zindabad” meaning Long Live Pakistan, or Victory to Pakistan. Coined as an expression of patriotism, the phrase was a common greeting among members of the Muslim League during their struggle for an independent state and has come to be strongly associated with Pakistani independence.
