Pakistan and India Independence Days 2017Mon 14 Aug 2017
This year it will be their 70th anniversary. Ealing Borough Police carry out appropriate policing operation on both days to ensure that it is a safe and happy time for all.
Police always advise people who intend to meet up with family and friends to celebrate the Independence Days in the Southall area to use public transport, to help minimise congestion in the area.
The Pakistan celebrations are far more noisier and last well into the night.
The Indian celebrations are much calmer and hardly noticeable.
There are far more sensible ways to celebrate Independence days.
Islahi Jamaat UK held event with a “Spiritual Dimensions of Pakistan” theme event at the Hounslow Jamia Masjid on Sunday.
There was a broadcast by Sahibzadah Sultan Ahmad Ali from Pakistan. His message was that we can peacefully co-exist with different views and should try to do so.
The function hall at the mosque in Hounslow was full with of men, women and children, who were served with the traditional Sultanui langar.
We wish everyone Happy Independence Days.
