Pakistanis in UAE celebrate Independence Day

(Dubai) – Pakistanis in the UAE celebrated their 67th Independence Day with prayers to end terrorism and the economic crisis in the country. A number of events were organised by the community and Pakistani missions across the UAE to mark the day. Pakistan’s Independence Day is celebrated every year on August 14 to mark the country’s independence from British rule on that date in 1947.
The Pakistan Embassy in Abu Dhabi and the Consulate in Dubai led the celebrations with flag-hoisting ceremonies. Ceremonies at both venues began with recitation of verses from the Quran. Charge d’ Affaires Syed Ahsan Raza Shah hoisted the Pakistan flag in Abu Dhabi, while Acting Consul General Mohammad Tariq Wazir hoisted the flag in Dubai.
A large number of Pakistanis, along with their families, participated in the ceremonies and joined in the singing of the national anthem.
