The Pakistani flag was raised high at the ceremony as the air rang out with cries of Pakistan Zindabad yesterday morning.
Called ‘mithai diplomacy’, giving out sweets on Pakistan and India’s respective Independence Days (and other special occasions) is a regular tradition at Wagah, despite tensions between the two countries.
