Each year 0n 14th August at midnight, Pakistanis start to celebrate the birthday of their beloved country.
HOW PAKISTAN CAME INTO BEING?
After two centuries of British rule over the Indian subcontinent, the British finally decided to leave the country after the end of the deadly World War. The Muslims of the subcontinent demanded a separate state under the leadership of the greatest and smartest Muslim leader of all time, Mohammed Ali Jinnah. Jinnah analyzed that Muslims and Hindus could not live together and should be separated.
After a long struggle and hundreds of thousands of sacrifices, the British finally decided to separate the subcontinent. At last, on 14 august 1947, the state for the Muslims of India, named Pakistan, came into being.
