Punjab interim Chief Minister Syed Mohsin Naqvi asked Prime Minister Shehbaz on Tuesday to proclaim May 25th a public holiday. The goal of this proposal is to allow the entire nation to pay respect to the Shuhada (martyrs) of the military forces and other law enforcement agencies who gave their life for the honor and tranquility of the nation.

The declaration comes after a slew of regrettable incidences during the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) demonstrations on May 9. Protesters linked with the PTI were said to have mutilated symbols of national grandeur and disrespected hero pictures. These actions sparked considerable outrage and a desire for the courageous men’s sacrifices to be recognized.

As a consequence of public sympathy, the federal government has already recognized May 25 as National Martyr Day. This day will be used to honor and commemorate the brave individuals who gave their life in the service of their nation.

The declaration has also sparked debate about the need of instilling a culture of respect and veneration for national symbols and martyrs. Authorities stress the importance of preserving these emblems since they reflect the sacrifices and efforts faced by the nation’s heroes.

As the country prepares to commemorate National Martyr Day with a national holiday, the government and numerous organizations are coordinating efforts to organize events and activities to honor the fallen heroes. These efforts seek to strengthen national solidarity, patriotism, and the necessity of preserving the nation’s dignity and honor.
