What Happened on 6 September Defense Day of Pakistan?
After 18 years of creation of Pakistan, India was still aggressive. He was also defeated by China in the 1962’s war. To wash its humiliation and disgrace, India decided to attack Pakistan and started to fire at different places of the line of control.
On 6 September 1965, India suddenly attacked from three sides of Pakistani Punjab. They planned to enter in the centre of Lahore and wanted to have breakfast there. At that time Pakistan had fewer weapons and also the number of soldiers, but India forgot that Pakistani nation and soldiers are so courageous that they never frightened to face enemies in any situation. And that’s what happened then.
Despite less in numbers, every soldier of the Pakistan Defence force competed enemies and blocked the path of Indian soldiers to enter in Lahore.
That Indian Army who was planning to have breakfast in Lahore could move only 3miles ahead, and eventually, they became compelled to take their steps back. Indian soldiers did thirteen big attacks within seventeen days but could not enter Lahore.
The Pakistan Army destroyed 36 Indian tanks. Pakistan’s air force also played a very important role to control Indian attacks and gave severe damage to India.

Another war between Pakistan and India was held in December 1971. This war resulted in splitting Pakistan into two parts and thus Bangladesh came to existence. Israel helped India in the war of 1971.
Although Pakistan had to lost half of its territory due to the creation of Bangladesh still Pakistan relations with Bangladesh are going well.
After splitting Pakistan, India felt relax. As he became win in its plan. But he never stopped teasing Pakistan and made the announcement for the atomic explosion. This announcement made Pakistan serious in its nuclear plans. In May 1998, Pakistan became a nuclear power. This step made India frightened.
For a long time, the relationship between Pakistan and India went well but in February 2019, India again tried to cross the borderline in darkness but Pakistan made the intentions of India fail.
Now, Pakistan celebrates another very happy surprise day on the 27th of February due to India.
