Defence and Martyrs Day will be observed today (Monday) to pay tributes to the martyrs and Ghazis and reaffirm commitment to defend the motherland against all threats.

It was on this day in 1965 that the Indian forces crossed 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, salute to all the relatives belonging to ghazis and Shaheeds.”

Special prayers will be offered after Fajr in mosques for the progress and prosperity of the country and independence of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir from the cruel clutches of India.

Fateha and Quran Khawani will also be held for the martyrs. The day will dawn with 31 gun salute at the Federal Capital and 21 gun salute at provincial capitals.
