Islamabad: The whole nation celebrated Youm-e-Takbeer with great fervour and zeal on Wednesday. The historic nuclear tests conducted by Pakistan in Rasko hills of Chaghi district of Balochistan on May 28, 1998 in response to Indian explosions made the country seventh nuclear nation of the world and first Islamic state equipped with nuclear arsenal.
These nuclear tests gave a clear message to the world that despite Pakistan is a peace loving country but it cannot ignore its defence needs and is capable of meeting any challenge. In order to highlight the importance of the day and achievement made by Pakistan on that day for its defence, functions were held in all parts of the country.
Meanwhile, President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, in their messages on the occasion have said strong defence guarantees a nation s solidarity and identity.
The President said it is a natural right of every nation and society to secure its survival and solidarity. He said today the country is confronted with a host of internal and external challenges and it is imperative that we should move ahead in unity.
