Youm-e-Takbeer!

It had been unfortunate for Pakistan that Pakistan had hostile neighbours since her birth on the world map. Indo-Pak wars in 1948, 1965 and 1971 proved the aggression of India towards Pakistan. In 1974, the nuclear tests of India made it inevitable for Pakistan to attain nuclear weapons. The initiative was started by the Government of that time and the achievement of attaining nuclear weapons was shown to the world on 28th May 1998.

Those who criticize Pakistan for being nuclear power must realize the fact that Pakistan had to get nuclear program to safeguard her borders and to save herself from security threats.

Youm-e-Takbir (یوم تکبیر) is celebrated as a national day in Pakistan on 28th May in commemoration of Chagai-I and Chagai-II when Pakistan triggered seven nuclear devices in response to India’s five detonations of Pokhran-II in 1998, 17 days after the incident. So, Pakistan became seventh World Nuclear Power and first one in the Muslim World.

Pakistan’s enemies have always tried to malign the nuclear capability of Pakistan but despite of regional terrorism and conspiracies of hostile neighbours, Pakistan is able to safeguard and its nuclear weapons.

Being Pakistani, I feel proud that my motherland is 7th nuclear power and the only Islamic country that has nukes. Hats off to tiring efforts of our scientists, engineers and soldiers who have made this IMPOSSIBLE benchmark of Pakistan’s nuclear program POSSIBLE for Pakistan.
