And though we are patriotic to the highest possible extent, one day takes the patriotism to a level that can never be matched.

The birth of the two countries sparked one of the most violent upheavals and forced removals of the 20th century as a result of the colonialist power's insidious divide-and-rule campaign to set Muslims and Hindus against each other.

There are no two thoughts about the constant unrest between India and Pakistan. Celebrated with huge patriotism remembering the sacrifice of soldiers and freedom fighters who have given their lives for the freedom of India from British colonialism. At the highly symbolic Wagah border crossing with India, army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa raised a massive national flag as crowds chanted slogans, reported Agence France-Presse. As per the Mahatma Gandhi's saying a flag is important and necessary for all nations around the world.

People can watch the live streaming of Flag Hoisting by PM Narendra Modi in Red Fort, New Delhi on August 15, 2017, on the occasion of 71st Independence Day.

A series of artists featured in the video sing Pakistan's "Pāk Sarzamīn" (also known as the "Qaumi Taranah") and Indian anthem "Jana Gana Mana".

Cultural programmes showcasing the nation's tradition and heritage were held at the consulate as part of the festivities. "We are bound by our flag code", he said, adding that since it was a ceremonial flag, it would be lowered a day after the Independence Day. "The independence should also be considered as a day of introspection and to ponder over as how we can redirect our energies to the development of Pakistan to be able to stand tall among the comity of nations", said Khan. "August 15 is the birthday of the independent and sovereign State of Pakistan".

Given the importance of the day in the minds of the Indian citizens, the Independence Day is considered a public holiday.

People of India celebrating this day by watching special programs on Televisions. I would like to wish all my fans a Happy Independence Day and urge them to be safe and contribute towards making this country a better place.

Britain ruled India for 190 years, at the time of Partition there was 400 million people living across what was British India.

I am proud to be an Indian and I salute all those who have fought for our freedom. Every drop of my blood... will contribute to the growth of this nation and make it strong and dynamic.
