Let us tell you that India will celebrate its 75th Independence Day tomorrow i.e. on Sunday.

Making the announcement on Twitter, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the pain of partition of the country can never be forgotten. Because of hatred and violence, lakhs of our sisters and brothers were displaced and even lost their lives. In memory of the struggle and sacrifice of those people, it has been decided to celebrate 14th August as ‘Vibhishika Memorial Day’.

He further said that this day of #PartitionHorrorsRemembranceDay i.e. ‘Vibjan Vibhisika Memorial Day’ will not only inspire us to eliminate the poison of discrimination, animosity and ill-will, but it will also strengthen unity, social harmony and human sensibilities.

Let us tell you that India celebrates its Independence Day on 15th August, while Pakistan celebrates it on 14th August. On August 14, India was divided into two and a new country was born. Pakistan was carved out as a Muslim country after the partition of India by the British colonial rule in 1947. Lakhs of people were displaced and several lakhs lost their lives due to the rampant riots.
