Pakistan Rangers celebrate Republic Day with Indian counterparts

Pakistan Day, also known as Republic Day, is celebrated every year on March 23 to mark the passing of the Lahore Resolution that demanded a separate state for the Muslims of British-ruled India. The Lahore Resolution is considered a major milestone in the Muslim struggle for an independent state, because Pakistan was carved out of India 7 years after the Resolution was adopted, on August 14, 1947.

On the occasion, Pakistani Rangers shook hands with personnel of India’s Border Security Force and offered them sweets to promote harmony. It is a tradition for Indian Army to exchange sweets with Pakistan Army on days of national importance for the two countries and on the occasion of major festivals every year.

The South Asian neighbours have fought two of their three wars since independence in 1947 over Muslim-majority Kashmir, which they both claim in full but rule in part.
