The Armed Forces are busy in rehearsals and drills at Shakarparian parade ground to celebrate the day in a spectacular way.

Armed forces troops and other departments were being seen busy in rehearsals and making other administrative arrangements for the day, to be held in a dignified and respectful manner.

Special ‘dua’ ceremonies would be organised at the Mosques after Fajar prayers, seeking solidarity, integrity and prosperity of the country.
