Youm-E-Takbeer to be Celebrated with National Zeal, Fervour

ISLAMABAD: Youm-e-Takbeer is being observed on Saturday with national zeal and fervour to memorialize the historic nuclear tests at Chaghi in 1998.

This year theme of the day is “Na Jhuky thay na Jhuken gay”.

On this day, Pakistan befitted the seventh nuclear power of the world with a demonstration of nuclear competencies.

Youm-e-Takbeer, which literally means “the day when Allah Almighty’s name was exalted” is celebrated every year with great enthusiasm.

To remind the struggle and great odds Pakistan faced in achieving the nuclear capabilities despite international pressures.

And the first in the Muslim world after accompanying nuclear tests at Chaghai in Balochistan.

On 28th May 1998 as a comeback to India’s nuclear bomb tests.

And on 11th and 13th May of the same year at Pokhran in the Rajasthan state of India.

The successful tests made Pakistan’s defense unbeatable.

Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif was the prime minister of Pakistan at that time.

Under whom nuclear tests conceded out as major world powers advised him to dodge the tests.

Exceptional prayers also offered in the morning.

For the evolution and prosperity of Pakistan, supremacy of the constitution, and eradication of terrorism.

As a result of the nuclear explosions, the nation had to endure economic sanctions imposed by the international community.

But it stood by its principled stand on the issue of achieving national deterrence.

The Ministry of Information and Dissemination has also released a national song in this connection.

With a goal aimed to highlight the prominence of this day.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had previously announced ten-day celebrations on the completion of 24 years of nuclear tests.

Radio Pakistan and television channels will broadcast special programs.

In which defense analysts, journalists, educationists, and intellectuals will participate and highlight significance of the day.
