Pakistan has commemorated its 75th anniversary of independence on the eve of India's independence, despite tense relations with New Delhi. Even after the signing of a cease-fire deal earlier this year, relations between the two sides have deteriorated in the midst of Afghanistan's turmoil.

On August 14, a day before Independence Day, the Attari-Wagah border saw joyful festivities. Border Security Force (BSF) soldiers performed a musical band at the border. Both nations' national flags were lowered in an elaborate ceremony. In the midst of a pandemic, the event has been kept low-key. The excitement of troops conducting the beating retreat ritual, on the other hand, is palpable.
