National Minority Day is observed on Wednesday (today) to commemorate the contribution of minorities in the progress of Pakistan. 

On August 11, the day is observed every year to recall the vision of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and to reaffirm the commitment that despite belonging to different faiths we are one nation.

The Government of Pakistan had declared 11 August as National Minority Day in 2009.

Events, seminars, and social gatherings are arranged across the country on the day by members of various religious minorities.

The day was basically dedicated to the minorities, who played their constructive role in the Pakistan movement.

Pakistan was the first country in the world which reassured its minorities about their future rights by specifically allocating a portion of the national flag.
