As our armed forces fight bravely to allow us to have a good night’s sleep everyday, many of us forget to sheer magnitude of service that is being provided to us by them. When you see a youthful lieutenant die at the age of 21, you are almost forced to salute our forces in gratification.


In the ongoing Zarb-e-Azb operation in Waziristan, the Pakistan army has lost thousands of soldiers, and their families have lost sons, most of whom had their entire lives ahead of them, just like Lt. Abdul Moeed, who was martyred in Waziristan when terrorists shot at an army vehicle, which had Abdul Moeed on board. The young soldier was a resident of Vehari, and had only passed out from the Pakistan Military Academy a couple of months ago in October.

“Freedom isn’t free, it costs sons of the soil. Freedom that we enjoy today is owed to so many such brave hearts. Salute to our Martyrs,” said Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa in a statement, paying tribute to the martyrs.

 

Just goes to show how one’s plans and aspiration can end in a split second. Appreciating his sacrifice, Pakistanis have been showering his shahadat with the utmost praise and respect..
