Defence and Martyrs Day being observed in Pakistan


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan is observing Defence and Martyrs’ Day today to reaffirm its commitment to defend the motherland against all threats and pay tributes to the martyrs and ghazis.

It was on this day in 1965 that the Indian forces crossed the international border in the darkness of night to attack Pakistan but the nation foiled nefarious designs of the enemy.

This year’s Defense and Martyrs’ Day theme is “Our martyrs our pride, a salute to all the relatives belonging to ghazis and Shaheeds.”
