Youm-e-Takbeer celebrates 26th anniversary today in Pakistan, There are thousands of people all around the globe celebrating Youm-e-Takbeer on Tuesday (today), which marks the 26th anniversary of the successful nuclear test conducted by Pakistan at the Ras Koh hills in the Chaghai District of Balochistan 26 years ago. 

There are currently seven nuclear-armed countries in the world, including Pakistan. Pakistan became the first country in the Islamic world, which has nuclear weapons after responding to Indian nuclear tests by conducting successful tests in 1998.

Aside from demonstrating Pakistan’s determination to safeguard the country’s territorial integrity and independence, as well as its desire to preserve the strategic balance of South Asia, the nuclear tests also demonstrated Pakistan’s resolve to ensure that its sovereignty is protected.

As part of their congratulatory remarks on the occasion of Youm-e-Takbeer, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Acting President Yusuf Raza Gilani and the chiefs of the military services expressed their best wishes to the people of Pakistan. 

A day to symbolise national power: PM

As PM Shehbaz congratulated the people of Pakistan on this day, he stated that the day embodied the nation’s collective effort, as it represents the triumph of all elements of its power working together to overcome what appeared to be an insurmountable challenge and achieve a vital milestone in its defense capabilities.

On X, the prime minister wrote that May 28 represents more than just a mere commemoration of a single day; it epitomizes the arduous yet remarkable journey our nation has undertaken to establish a credible minimum deterrence.

Nawaz Sharif showed a remarkable display of leadership on this historic day in 1998, by rejecting nerve-wracking pressures and inducements that were aimed at making Pakistan a nuclear-armed nation by accepting the invitation to do so.

It is also my pleasure to pay tribute to Pakistan’s founding Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, who was a strategic visionary and unwavering commitment to the cause of Pakistan’s nuclear program, as well,” the prime minister said.

‘Moments of great significance’

I would like to extend my warm congratulations on behalf of the armed forces to the nation on behalf of the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC), General Sahir Shamshad Mirza and the chiefs of the services.

A significant moment in Pakistan’s history was marked recently by the nuclear tests of 1998, which succeeded in establishing credible minimum deterrence in the region and returning the balance of power in the region, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

This statement is designed to pay homage to all those who contributed to this remarkable feat, achieved against overwhelming odds, by their unwavering dedication and selfless sacrifices, in addition to the armed forces and the nation as a whole.

Youm-e-Takbeer proves resilience of nation

As the Acting President of the Republic of Pakistan, Mr. Gilani reiterated his determination to continue working towards creating a world of peace and stability in his message on that day.

As a result of the Youm-e-Takbeer event, he was able to demonstrate Pakistan’s capabilities in nuclear power production and to join the ranks of nuclear powers on this particular day, and added that it also passed a testament to Pakistan’s resilience and unwavering determination to maintain regional peace and stability.

It is Pakistan’s belief that conflict can be peacefully resolved by the efforts of both sides, which is what he described as being a responsible nuclear state.
