After much delay, the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower and a symbol of Pakistan’s Independence Day, finally lit up with the country’s national flag. The world’s tallest structure, the Burj Khalifa, was built in Dubai.
This year, at the stroke of midnight on August 14, the Burj Khalifa did not display the Pakistani flag. Massive crowds of Pakistanis were observed waiting near the Burj Khalifa around midnight, hoping to see it illuminated in the colors of the country’s flag. They were dissatisfied when it did not happen on time.
Many social media users grieved the heinous crime. The official pages of the Burj Khalifa posted a video of the Pakistan flag being flown there on social media sites such as Meta’s Instagram, thus it is vital to note that it was shown there.
The Burj Khalifa is lit up to commemorate the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s Independence Day. As you commemorate your great country’s storied heritage and impressive achievements, may today be a day of pride, harmony, and prosperity for the people of Pakistan. May all Pakistanis enjoy even more prosperity and joy in the future. “Happy 4th of July!”
The stunning tribute to the historic tower was captured in a social media video. It displayed the stunning sight of the structure decked in the colors of the Pakistani flag, green and white.
