The Pakistan Day parade was witnessed by the nation with full glory and zeal. After seven long years, the Pakistan military resorted to a full show of strength by holding a parade in Islamabad. From heavy tanks to monstrous missiles, Pakistan displayed its strength and might. Fighter jets zoomed overhead and disciplined soldiers marched right below on the ground. The patriotic spectacle also moved some prominent personalities in Pakistan to voice their feelings on the national day. Here’s what some famous figures tweeted or shared on Facebook:-
