Important announcement of Lord Mountbatten:
Lord Mountbatten, the then Voice of India, returned all power to India after the Indian Independence Act. India gained independence on the creation of Pakistan, and both of these are considered contemporary programs. According to the Indian Independence Act 1947, India and Pakistan became two independent countries from August 15, 1947.
Lord Mountbatten transferred his power to Pakistan on August 14, 1947, so that on August 15, top Pakistani officials could come to New Delhi and participate in India’s first Independence Day program. Mountbatten decided to end World War II in 1945 on August 15.
Why Pakistan Independence Day on August 14?
August 14, 1947, was the 27th day of Ramazan, which is considered a culinary day according to the Islamic calendar. It is another reason why Pakistan celebrates its Independence Day on August 14. Pakistan was formed from independent India and not British India. Let me tell you that India attained independence on August 15, 1947.
History of the partition of India and Pakistan:
After partition, India Dominion is known as the Republic of India, and Pakistan Dominion is known as the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. This division displaces about 10 to 12 million people along religious lines, witnessing mass violence at the cost of millions of lives.
The birth of Pakistan was announced by Pakistan’s founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah on August 15 itself. Let me tell you that according to the Indian Independence Act, India and Pakistan were liberated on the same day. With this, Mohammad Ali Jinnah became the first Prime Minister of Pakistan, a Muslim-majority country, while Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru became the first Prime Minister of a secular nation India.
Pakistan not separated from British India:
Pakistan broke away from India on August 15, 1947. Who says this thing also says that India got independence from the British Government, and after that, Pakistan got separated from India. Pakistan was not separated from British India to form British Pakistan. Pakistan became independent Pakistan and became Pakistan.
Some even argue that the Indian Law was signed on August 15, 1947, at 5:30 pm in New Delhi. Pakistan’s time is 30 minutes ahead of India’s time, i.e., half an hour earlier. When Pakistan got independence, it was 23:30 at that time. Therefore, Pakistan’s Independence Day is celebrated on August 14, and India is celebrated on August 15.
