LAHORE: Today, Yom Takbir is being observed in memory of the historic nuclear tests carried out by Pakistan on May 28, 1998. On this day, Pakistan responded to India's nuclear blasts by detonating five nuclear warheads in Chaghi area of Balochistan.
Twenty years ago, after the nuclear blasts, Pakistan became the first nuclear power in the Muslim world and the seventh in the world. The atomic bombings were carried out because India had threatened the security of the region by carrying out three bomb blasts in Pokhara on May 11, 1998.
After the nuclear blast by the Indian leadership, a series of dangerous threats to Pakistan had also started. Pakistan was prevented from responding strongly to the nuclear blasts from all over the world, but despite the international pressure, the government showed courage and on May 28 Five nuclear explosions were ordered and nuclear tests were carried out on the mountains of Chaghi in the echo of the slogan Takbir.
Pakistan's nuclear program has been the target of international conspiracies and criticism since day one. Pakistan's nuclear power does not go unnoticed by many world powers. It is the duty of the government and the entire nation to be ready to make all possible sacrifices for the protection and development of this nuclear program as a symbol of national security and this is the message of Takbir today. ۔
