Burj Khalifa is also known as Burj Dubai. Before we start talking about this Burj and the celebrations of 14 August on Burj Khalifa. Let’s take a look at the History of Pakistan’s Independence Day which is celebrated on 14 August. A day before India celebrates its 74th year of independence, Pakistan will observe it’s 75th Independence Day on Saturday.
At a cabinet meeting presided over by Liaquat Ali Khan, Pakistan’s first prime minister, it was suggested in June 1948 that the nation observe its Independence Day before India. The date was moved up to August 14 after the plan was presented to Jinnah for his approval. Another justification given is that Pakistan Standard Time (PST) is 30 minutes behind Indian Standard Time (IST). Pakistan celebrates its independence on August 14 because it was 11:30 p.m. local time in Pakistan on August 14 when India gained its freedom at 00:00 on August 15.

PAKISTAN INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS
August 14 is a national holiday in Pakistan, which is observed with government-organized parades, air shows, and fireworks. Official dignitaries and heads of state pay respects and offer prayers at the tomb of Pakistan’s founding father, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, every year in Karachi. People wave flags and yell at Azadi and Pakistan Zindabad while blasting patriotic music from their cars. Although the flag was created at the time of the 1947 partition, the predominantly green color is said to represent the Muslim majority and the white color the non-Muslim minority. This religious division is still relevant today.
Shop owners are prepared with flag-themed t-shirts for Independence Day, traditional garb in green and white, and badges. Locals can be seen on the side of the road selling comparable goods, but in push-able wooden carts that can be moved from one location to another. A sense of patriotism unites everyone.
