Youm-e-Takbeer is being observed today (May 28, 2012)
Islamabad (May 28, 2012) – Youm-e-Takbeer, the celebration of Pakistan s atomic explosions in 1998, will be observed on Monday across the country with a pledge to make Pakistan a stronger country, militarily and economically, among the comity of nations.
Then Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif (PMLN) was Prime Minister of Pakistan. The day is commemorated every year on May 28 to mark the conduction of nuclear tests on the very day, in 1998, making Pakistan the first Muslim and the 7th nuclear country in the world.
Pakistan had conducted nuclear tests at Chaghi, Balochistan in response to five nuclear explosions conducted by India, threatening the security of Pakistan.
To mark the day, various political parties and social organizations have chalked out a number of comprehensive programmes with national zeal and fervour in different parts of the country.
Pakistan, on May 28, 1998, joined the prestigious club of seven nuclear powers, by conducting nuclear tests to give a befitting response to India’s initiative of testing nukes on May 11 and 13, the same year.
