PAKISTAN celebrated the Gwadar Day on the 8th December of each year to celebrate the annexation of Gwadar with the State of PAKISTAN in 1958.
PAKISTAN NAVY sent its Naval Platoon in the Command of Lt. Iftikhar Ahmed Sirohey and this Naval Platoon was the first ever to land at Gwadar and to raise the Sacred Flag of PAKISTAN there.
