It is that time of the year and all Pakistanis are anxiously waiting for the Pakistan Day Parade.
The show of the country’s military strength will be in full swing and it is sure to give us all goosebumps. From the display of military artillery to the air show, the event instills the feelings of patriotism every year.
This year’s show will be more special than ever as it will be a befitting reply to the pompous Indian media and the armed forces following the uncalled for aggression last month. The parade shows the world that Pakistan’s efforts for peace should not be mistaken for weakness and that it is capable of responding to any aggression with full force, on all fronts, with a display of country’s military arsenal.
Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (DG ISPR), Major General Asif Ghafoor has said that the 23rd March Parade will be attended by the Guest of Honor, Malaysian Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad. Here’s teaser video he shared:
