Youm-e-Takbeer being observed today

WEB DESK: Youm-e-Takbeer is being observed today with a pledge to defend the country against any aggression.

The nation would pledge today that all out efforts would be made for upholding national sovereignty and solidarity and for safeguarding the geographical and ideological frontiers of Pakistan.

Pakistan had carried out nuclear tests on 28 May, 1998 in response to Indian nuclear explosions, making defence of the motherland impregnable.

In the morning, special prayers were offered for the progress and prosperity of the country, supremacy of the constitution, and eradication of terrorism.

Different events are being held at government as well as private level to highlight importance of the day. Radio Pakistan is also broadcasting special programmes in connection with Youm-e-Takbeer.
