18th anniversary of October 12 military coup is being observed today (Thursday). The military coup by former dictator Pervez Musharraf toppled the elected government of then prime minister Mian Nawaz Sharif in 1999.

Since then, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has been marking the day as ‘black day’, staging countrywide protest rallies and public meetings in all big and small towns of the country to condemn the overthrow.
