The renowned Pakistani singer Gul Panra wished her fans in Afghanistan a Happy Independence Day on the 100th Independence Day of Afghanistan.

Gul Panra who is famous for her Pashto songs in Afghanistan took to Instagram on Monday to wish her Afghans, the Pakistan-based The News outlet reported.

“This is very special day I want to wish you all Afghan fans the day of freedom, sacrifices and bravery.  Long may this flag wave. Happy Independence Day. #100TheIndependenceDay #Afghanistan,” she wrote on her Insta story which also carried a picture of a tattered flag of the war-torn country.

The 100th Independence Day of Afghanistan was celebrated across the country amid reports of violence in certain provinces.

The government on Sunday postponed a major festival to mark the 100th Independence Day after a deadly bombing targeted a wedding hall in Kabul a day earlier which left more than 100 people dead.
