14th August was celebrated with full fun and fervour across Pakistan, maybe even more than usual with the recent elections making the nation hopeful for change! Our celebrities gave us a fun dose of patriotism and splash of green via our Instagram feed, and here’s a look at some the basic kind of pictures we came across:
The Family Picture
Lots took it as the perfect opportunity for a coordinated family photo!
The Glam Solos
While others took it as a chance to dress up in their Tuesday best and pose away for a more glamorous shot.
In his Eid-ul-Azha Message to the Nation in 1947, the Quaid said, "My message to you all is of hope, courage and confidence. Let us mobilise all our resources in a systematic and organised way and tackle the grave issues that confront us with grim determination and discipline worthy of a great nation." 71 years on as we stand a another crossroad, never has that message been more poignant and relevant. On this independence day let's resolve to make this nation of ours great again and fulfil the vision that the Quaid had for Pakistan. PAKISTAN ZINDABAD ! 🇵🇰♥️ #MehwishHayat #Quaidkapakistan #proudpakistani #merijaanmeripehchan #71stindependenceday #webleedgreen💚
The Grand Flag
You know what they say- the bigger the flag the greater your patriotism! We’re kidding. No one actually says that. But everyone wants to hoist the biggest flag in the neighbourhood!
