Pakistan Day parade to recommence after seven years
Full dress rehearsal has also begun ahead of the Pakistan Day.
Joint staff headquarters in Rawalpindi, which oversees the three armed forces of Pakistan, will organize the parade.
The last military parade took place on March 23, 2007 during the tenure of Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf. However, since that year, no military parade took place owing to security concerns in the country.
The authorities have started considering venue for the parade, which will be finalized soon.
Similarly, a ceremony to mark Pakistan Day was held at the President House virtually after eight years on March 23, 2014.
President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had come in a bogie to attend the ceremony. Chairman Joint Chief of Staff and all top representatives of the armed forces among key politicians attended the event. President and the prime minister hoisted the national flag at the ceremony.
Parade and march-past was also held to pay respect to the soldiers of Pakistan, who rendered sacrifices in the line of duty.
