(Web Desk) – Not only in Pakistan, but ceremonies were held in major capitals across the world to mark the 84th Pakistan Day with national spirit and renewed zeal.

The day has its roots in the passing of the Lahore Resolution on March 23, 1940, when the All-India Muslim League demanded a separate homeland for the Muslims of the British Indian Empire.

The day was celebrated in the embassies of United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and Australia, Iran, China and South Korea.

During the celebration, the messages from President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif were read out to the audience.
