The nation is celebrating Independence Day today (Tuesday) with renewed resolve to work with the spirit of Pakistan Movement to make the country a true Islamic welfare state. The day dawned with 31-gun salute in the federal capital and 21-gun salute in the provincial headquarters. Prayers were offered for security and progress of Pakistan and well being of the people.
Independence Day reminds us of unrivalled sacrifices rendered by our brave ancestors and the distance that has been travelled through since 1947. Like all patriotic Pakistanis, our showbiz divas also celebrate the day with same zest and zeal. Here are some of the pictures showing how the A-listers from glittering showbiz industry dressed up on 71st Independence Day.

Pakistan can be a really strong/powerful country, when the people of Pakistan are patriots in the true sense of the word. Love your country and it will shower all the blessings on you in return. “Yeh Watan Tumhara Hay Tum Ho Pasban Iss Kay”.#happyindependenceday #14august2018 pic.twitter.com/Jy6M7IJtOJ

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💚
