Before independence, GB was part of the State of Jammu and Kashmir, one of the largest princely states of India which was created in 1846 after the signing of a treaty between the British and Gulab Singh of the Dogra dynasty.

The Chief Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan delivered a special message for this day and said that we pay homage to our martyrs and brave sons of the soil who fought for their beloved motherland without any outside help and finally achieved freedom from the clutches of Dogra Raj.

The day starts with a flag hoisting ceremony from the hands of the chief guest and people will lay a floral wreath on the graves of the martyrs and offer Fatiha at the Yadgar-e-Shuhada.

On this occasion, different events are organized both at government and public level to celebrate this historic event in a befitting manner.
