Pakistan National Defence Day
This is the day when we pay tribute to the brave martyred soldiers who sacrificed their lives in defending their homeland from the enemy,especially to those 10 martyrs who distinguished themselves for their extraordinary heroism and were awarded the anticipated Nishan-e-Haider.
Years later, once again, we are engaged in a war and our soldiers are sacrificing their lives to protect our homeland from terrorists.We are passing through challenging times. Any act of terrorism is accredited to Muslims. We must learn to stand confidently on our own feet. As Allama Iqbal stated: Momin hai tou bay-taigh bhi larta hai Sipahi. We saw glimpses of this optimism in Quaid-e Azam who filled the whole nation with hope and never gave up till he gained this land.
The 6th of September should also be a day of thanksgiving. We should all pray for the safety and solidarity of Pakistan and also that God gives us the strength, courage and determination, to protect and safeguard at all costs, the freedom and honour of our homeland.
Please recite a fateha for Shohada-e-Islam ,Shohada-e-Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan ,especially the Martyrs of armed forces and civilians who have sacrificed their lives while defending the nation.
