Joint Services Pakistan Day Parade A Powerful Potrayal of the Indomitable Spirit of Women Empowerment

April 2024

March 23, 1940, is a significant landmark that facilitated the establishment of Pakistan. The Pakistan Resolution was adopted by the Muslims of the Indian Subcontinent to assert their desire for self-determination and sovereignty. It aimed to convey to the world that they are a unified nation and will strive to secure what rightfully belongs to them—a state where they can live freely and practice their own religious beliefs and values. The Joint Services Pakistan Day Parade (JSPDP) is carried out in remembrance of this historic day to pay tribute to the heroes of Pakistan who stood for the creation of a separate homeland. Carried out amidst the ravishing scenic beauty of Islamabad, the parade unfolds a vibrant display of military prowess through a synchronized drill of marching columns, roaring sounds of sophisticated jets soaring and maneuvering through the sky, a spectacular display of strength and might by the paratroopers, and provincial floats displaying our diverse cultural heritage, making this event one significant sight to behold. This event is a testament to the strength, valor, resilience, and unity of Pakistan—a sight to behold and cherish. The intense heat of the sun searing our faces and relentless rehearsals depleting our energy to the last drop made us realize the hardships and suffering that our ancestors had endured for the creation of our beloved country, Pakistan.

Carrying forward the legacy of Hazrat Nusaybah Bint Ka’ab and Hazrat Khawla Bint al-Azwar, the Lady Officer’s contingent was a prominent part of the JSPDP, marching alongside their male counterparts, depicting their integrity and sincerity towards duty. Young Lady Officers, adorned in their respective ceremonial uniforms and wearing regimental berets, are the embodiments of their unwavering dedication, strength, and resilience. This contingent, representing the 52% majority of Pakistan, was led by Lt Col Seema Bashir of the AMC. Tri-Services columns were led by Capt Ayesha Pervaiz, Surg Lt Cdr Nazia Naeem, and GD (P) Sqn Ldr Fatima Ali. The Armed Forces Nursing Services (AFNS) column was led by Lt Salma Abbasi, Lt Cdr Abida Parveen, and Sqn Ldr Humaira Sabeen. The representation of women in the female contingent was not just limited to the tri-services; it included females from ANF, ASF, Police, and Rangers as well, as represented by AD Amber Mumtaz, AD Suneela Saima, Sub-Inspector Syeda Areej Zahra, and Hav Lubna Shehzadi, respectively.
