Martyrs and their families are the pride of Pakistan, says the military in a tweet
The Pakistan Army has published a short film named “Super Hero” to pay homage to victim families ahead of Defence and Martyrs Day on September 6.
“Greetings to the martyrs and their families… martyrs are the glory of Pakistan,” said the description of a video posted on Saturday by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on its official Twitter handle.
On Friday, DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar said that this year’s Defence Day will be celebrated with nationalistic enthusiasm and fervor, but with a fresh idea of Watan Ki Matti Gawah Rehna (the soil of the land bear testimony – to our country and defense attempts).
He stated that the major ceremony will follow rigorous Covid-19 regulations and safety precautions to prevent illness spread.
“The country is asked to reach out to the families of the martyrs who shed their blood for the motherland and pay their respects and homage to their courageous martyrs and loved ones,” he said.
Each year, the memorable day of September 6 is marked with unmutilated energy and excitement, delivering a strong warning to hostile India that the Pakistani population and military forces are fully prepared to resist any attempts to undermine the country’s autonomy and dignity.
A variety of activities are being performed around the country to reaffirm the nation’s determination not to allow anybody to cast an evil eye on the motherland, which was accomplished on August 14, 1947, following enormous sacrifices by Muslims from the subcontinent.
On September 6, 1965, Pakistan was confronted with a severe challenge to its sovereignty and integrity, which the nation and its gallant military forces addressed with tremendous courage and resolve, overcoming the dark aspirations of a much bigger opponent – India.
Every year since then, the country has celebrated Defence Day with zeal.
