PAF observes Martyrs’ Day throughout the country

ISLAMABAD, (SANA): Pakistan Air Force on Saturday observed Air Force Day throughout the country in order to commemorate unconquerable will and courage of Air force officers who never submitted or yielded before the enemy who attacked motherland in order to meet her nefarious aims.

The day started with special Du aa and Quran Khawani for the Shuhada of 1965 and 1971 wars and those who laid down their lives for the security of the country.

A graceful ceremony was held at PAF Headquarters Islamabad to observe Air Force Day.

Air Chief Marshal Tahir Rafique Butt laid floral wreaths at the martyrs’ memorial and offered fateha. A smartly turned out contingent of Pakistan Air Force presented guard of honor to the Air Chief Marshal.

Floral wreaths were laid on the graves of PAF martyrs throughout the country.

A PAF Contingent led by Air Vice Marshal Syed Hassan Azhar Rizvi, Air Officer Commanding, Southern Air Command, Pakistan Air Force offered ‘Fateha’ and laid floral wreath on behalf of Air Chief Marshal Tahir Rafique Butt, Chief of the Air Staff, Pakistan Air Force at the grave of Pilot Officer Rashid Minhas Shaheed (Nishan-e-Haider). The contingent paid homage to the young pilot who sacrificed his life in the defence of motherland, showing exceptional courage and determination.

The Defence Day of Pakistan, celebrated by all the three services, reminds us of those Shaheeds and Ghazis who with their dauntless courage and gallantry thwarted the evil designs of the enemy in 1965 Indo-Pak War leaving behind several unforgettable tales of unparalleled valour and chivalry.

Pakistan Air Force had arranged an aviation art exhibition at the Alhamra Art Gallery in Lahore.

Around two hundred oil paintings by retired Captain Syed Masood Akhtar Hussaini and fifteen cardboard plane models by Squadron Leader Nadeem Ali had been displayed as tribute to martyrs of the 1965 war.

It is worthy of note that having superiority in martial filed, the enemy waged war against Pakistan in September 1965 not only in field but also started air strikes but Pakistan’s Air Force while using their professional skills and unparalleled passions defeated the enemy who had no option but to escape from our national territory.

Squadron leader MM Alam with his outstanding and matchless achievements terrified the enemy who was proud of her marital strength.
