Pakistan stands out among all the South Asian countries by being a most diverse country which incorporates different cultures in it; representing different ethnic groups, speaking different languages and following different rituals. One of the festival celebrated nation wide is Jashn-e-Shikarpur. The people of Pakistan do not only follow their cultures themselves but they feel glorified in celebrating and presenting their cultures to other people, so that people get to know about their traditions and their rituals and appreciate them. Following their rituals and traditions they organize different events and festivals to share and celebrate their happiness. They gather and perform different obligations, participate in different sports, perform their traditional dances, share their feelings and happiness. These festivals are a great symbol of their unity and represent their culture elegantly.
The recent news that Holi & Diwali are going to be declared national holidays has been received with considerable warmth all over the country. The progressive sections of the society are hailing this act as a step towards a more tolerant Pakistan and a victory for the liberal sections of the Pakistani society.
