RAWALPINDI – Inter Services Public Relations has shared another short video to pay rich tribute to the martyrs, Ghazis and all the relations linked to them ahead of the Defence Day to be observed on Monday (September 6).
The military’s media wing released the video on Twitter and it begins with the title “Eid”. ISPR wrote in the caption, “We are proud of our martyrs.
The 2-minute-long video clip shows an innocent child, who walks long to his village’s bus stop a day before the Eid to see if his father, a soldier in Pakistan Army, has returned to celebrate the day with family.

As the heartfelt clip proceeds, the kid can be seen offering Eid prayer afterwards an elder men meet him and say, “It would have good if fouji [soldier] had come for two days”.
