Every year the cellular services are suspended on Pakistan’s Day. Owing to the security reasons, the government takes a precautionary step and suspends the mobile services throughout Pakistan.
This year though there were chances that the mobile network would not suspend as it was declared by the Islamabad High Court that suspending the services is illegal. However, yesterday the IHC has enabled the federal government to suspend the mobile phone services on 23rd March parade.
