Pakistan Independence Day (1947): August 14, 2019

Release Number CB19-SFS.92
Component ID: #ti1358794188

From history.com, THIS DAY IN HISTORY August 15, 1947, India and Pakistan win independence:

”The Indian Independence Bill, which carves the independent nations of India and Pakistan out of the former Mogul Empire, comes into force at the stroke of midnight. The long-awaited agreement ended 200 years of British rule and was hailed by Indian independence leader Mohandas Gandhi as the “noblest act of the British nation.”

From the Central Intelligence Agency, The World Factbook, SOUTH ASIA: PAKISTAN:

“The separation in 1947 of British India into the Muslim state of Pakistan (with West and East sections) and largely Hindu India was never satisfactorily resolved, and India and Pakistan fought two wars and a limited conflict - in 1947-48, 1965, and 1999 respectively - over the disputed Kashmir territory. A third war between these countries in 1971 - in which India assisted an indigenous movement reacting to the marginalization of Bengalis in Pakistani politics - resulted in East Pakistan becoming the separate nation of Bangladesh.”
