Reason Behind Pakistan Celebrating Independence Day on Aug 14, a Day Before India
The separate states of both India and Pakistan were created at midnight on August 15, 1947. According to a report, Pakistan's first Independence Day was also celebrated on August 15 but later it was advanced to August 14. Another reason is that Pakistan decided to celebrate its Independence Day on August 14 because of 27th day of Ramadan, which is also an auspicious date of the Islamic lunar calendar, which coincided with it.
