India, Pakistan Celebrate Independence from British Colonial Rule

India, Pakistan Celebrate Independence from British Colonial Rule

Alwaght- India and Pakistan celebrated 75 years of independence since the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947 that ended nearly 200 years of British colonial rule. It also marks the partition of the subcontinent into India and Pakistan — with ripple effects of that delineation still being felt today.

Standing in front of the historic Red Fort in Delhi, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday pledged to transform India into a developed country in the next 25 years.

"The way the world is seeing India is changing. There is hope from India and the reason is the skills of 1.3 billion Indians," Modi said. "The diversity of India is our strength. Being the mother of democracy gives India the inherent power to scale new heights."

In Pakistan, Acting Sindh Governor Agha Siraj Durrani and Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah laid a floral wreath at the grave of Jinnah, the founder of the nation, and raised the country’s flag.

On August 14, 1947, the independent state of Pakistan appeared on the world stage for the first time when the Indian subcontinent was formally divided into two new dominions of India and Pakistan under the terms of the Indian Independence Act, adopted by the British Parliament.
