Pakistan celebrates its Independence Day every year on 14 August. Pakistan Independence Day is marked as a significant milestone in the entire history of the Islamic nation. On 14 August 1947, two independent states emerged when the British Indian Empire underwent division.
The two states thus formed are India and Pakistan. After a determined struggle of seven years, finally Pakistan gained its independent status under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. This year in 2023, Pakistan Independence Day falls on Monday, 14 August.

Why does Pakistan celebrate Independence Day on August 14?
In 1933 in a leaflet titled, “Now or Never,” the term Pakistan appeared for the first time. In July 1947, the British parliament introduced the India Independence Act, leading to the creation of two interim governments on 20 July, Pakistan, and India.
On 14 August 1947, the entire British Indian subcontinent went through separation leading to the birth of two independent nations Pakistan and India. Pakistan emerged as a dominion. However, later it transitioned to the Islamic Republic.
Why is India and Pakistan’s Independence Day different?
India celebrates its Independence Day on 15 August. However, its neighbouring country Pakistan celebrates its Independence Day on 14 August every year. We have the following statements to refer to to support why India and Pakistan Independence Day are commemorated on different dates.
Pakistan gained powers from Lord Mountbatten on 14 August 1947, a day before India got its Independence. This happened so that Pakistani officials could be present on 15 August 1947 in New Delhi, India on India’s Independence Day.
It is also stated that 14 August 1947 was the 27th day of Ramadan. Thus, the date held immense significance according to the Islamic Calendar. Therefore, Pakistan came forward to celebrate 14 August as Pakistan Independence Day.
