Pakistan Day parade cancelled

ISLAMABAD: Federal government has decided to cancel the annual Pakistan Day – March 23 – armed forces parade for the fourth consecutive year due to the current security situation of the country. The Pakistan Day Parade, the biggest event of the country’s armed forces, which was scheduled for March 23 this year, has been cancelled by the federal govt with due consultation with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Gen Shamim Wynne and military leadership, sources said.
Sources told that military leadership was of the view that since a large number of troops are deployed at the eastern and western border of the country and are engaged in war on terror thus it would not be possible to move them for Pakistan Day parade. Moreover by canceling the parade expenditures worth of million of rupees could be saved.
Sources said moreover, since high profile personalities such as the president, prime minister, diplomats and large number of people come to witness the parade, their security is also important. Last Pakistan Day Parade was held at Sports Complex Islamabad during the era of President Gen Pervez Musharraf in 2007. -Online
