Lahore is ALWAYS in demand!

Lahore has been a historic place. It has seated Kings and people of high stature. It’s no wonder that when the war of 1965 broke out, the Indians had one agenda. Gen. J N Choudhary of India said on the radio, ” Tomorrow we will drink in Lahore Gymkhana.”

Lahore’s Gymkhana is POPULAR even across the border!

Lahore though is a crown in Pakistan’s jewel, and they weren’t going to let go of it easily. Pakistan fought a hard battle to keep Lahore to itself and anyone would. Everyone wants a piece of Lahore.

As the defense day comes the country sprouts in patriotism as flags are seen throughout houses and children wave them as they pass in cars and bikes alike. The Lahore army museum is the place to go if you want to learn more about the history of 1965. They have pictures with details and the whole timeline of the event which took place, and it is VERY informative.

The Army has always stood by its people and here you can see officers paying tribute to the martyrs of the war.

Pakistanis are OBSESSED with their beautiful flag and it comes out shining during every event. Here you can see a content creator celebrating Defence Day.
