It is celebrated on the memory of martyred people who gave sacrifices of their life for the defense of the country. Pak – India War II was fought in 1965. Pakistan and India, both countries fought that war for the issue of Kashmir but this issue remained unsolved.
A lot of people lost their lives from both countries and a lot of weapons were used. At last on 6th September, this war was ended with the support of UN. India launched her forces and attacked Pakistan across the international border without a warning or a declaration of war. this action of India, which claims to be the largest democracy in the World, was in utter violation of International law, charter of the United Nations and norms of civilized behavior among states. India arrogantly swept aside her international commitments in her desire to subjugate the region.
