Youm-e-Takbeer to be fervently observed tomorrow

Youm-e-Takbeer will be fervently observed tomorrow in remembrance of nuclear tests conducted on May 28, 1998 that made the defense of the country invincible.

The day made Pakistan the seventh nuclear nation of the world and the first Muslim state having the nuclear arsenal in its defense stockpile to exercise maximum deterrence for peaceful purposes.

The historic statement of former Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto that they would starve but transform the country into a nuclear power, led to achievement of this milestone.

Resisting the mounting external pressures, the then Prime Minister of Pakistan Muhammad Nawaz Sharif went for the bold decision to test the Pakistani nukes and thus balancing the strategic slanting power in the region.
