Defence Day : Sila-e-Shaheed kia Hai? Tab-o-Taab-e-Javidaana..!
Pakistani nation is commemorating its fiftieth Defence day with national vigour, fervour and enthusiasm. This day has a special significance as it reminds us the valiant sacrifices of the brave sons of this nation who laid down their lives for the sake of defence of the ideological and geographical frontiers of this nation.
This day reminds us of the heroic acts of our valiant soldiers who defended every inch of the land from the aggression of enemy. It also reminds us of the valour and gallantry of Pakistani nation who stood right behind its soldiers in the defence of the country.
It is also a day to remember the sacrifices of our heros from other walks of life, who are working tirelessly in any field to keep Pakistan`s flag high.
It is also a day to remember the sacrifices of Pakistani nation against the monster of terrorism which has been plaguing this nation.
It is also a day to pay fitting tributes to martyrs of Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan who have rendered invaluable services in all domains ever since the inception of the country and whose blood has been most ferociously spilled on this land ever since Pakistan was established.
This year`s defence day is special as the entire Pakistani nation is galvanized to defeat the terrorism and there is an increasing consensus and resolve of Pakistani nation against terrorists and their sympathizers.
Of course, given the fact that the poisonous indoctrination of takfiri mindset has been systematically done to please the global arrogance, during last four to five decades with the active collaboration of successive regimes, the hatred spawning factories can not just be wished way.
Concerted efforts are needed in various sectors especially health, education and economic sector to tackle the menace by addressing its root causes and completely isolating the takfiri beasts by forging strong bonds of national unity.
It is a welcome sign that slowly and gradually the entire Pakistani nation irrespective of ethnic or religious background are coming on the same page and enjoying a shared vision of peaceful co-existence and all have realized that supporting terrorists and terrorism can bring no benefit to anyone.
It may not be out of place to lament however, that this simple conclusion may have been reached at a much lower cost, if the monster were not allowed to grow bigger and bigger and bigger, for myopic short term ambitions, which have been comprehensively beaten and the oppressed Pakistani nation has borne the brunt by see-ing enormous devastation and long term losses, losing loved ones and peace of mind.
May Allaah grant Pakistani nation foresight and wisdom to embrace the realities and in the words of Holy Masoom [AS] may Allaah grant us vision to see things as they are.
