RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Maj-Gen Babar Iftikhar said on Thursday that on May 28, 1998, Pakistan successfully restored the balance of power in the region.

Paying tribute on the eve of Youm-e-Takbeer, the DG ISPR said that on the day Pakistan successfully established credible, minimum nuclear deterrence.

On behalf of the Armed Forces, Maj Gen Babr Iftikhar saluted all those involved in the process, including scientists and engineers.

“On 28 May 1998 Pak successfully established credible min nuclear deterrence & restored balance of power in the region. AFs salute all those involved from conceptualisation to actualisation especially scientists & engineers who made this possible. Long Live Pakistan. #YoumeTakbeer,” the ISPR director general tweeted.

On the other hand, the nation is observing the Youm-e-Takbeer, the celebration of Pakistan’s atomic explosions in 1998, with zeal and fervor across country on Thursday.

On May 28, 1998, Pakistan joined the prestigious club of seven nuclear powers by conducting nuclear tests in response to India’s initiative of testing nukes on May 11 and 13 the same year.

The nuclear explosions, which were conducted in self-defence to respond to India’s aggression of nuclear tests, made Pakistan’s defence invincible.

As a result, Pakistan became the first nuclear power in the Muslim world and seventh in the world.
