All kind of public gatherings, especially famous military parade, have been postponed as precautionary measures.

However, Radio Pakistan and Pakistan Television will air special programmes, while newspapers will publish special issues on the occasion.

The Day is observed to commemorate the passage of Lahore Resolution on this day in 1940, under which the Muslims of the sub-continent set the agenda of achieving a separate homeland.
