In his message on Defence and Martyrs Day, President Dr. Arif Alvi said the 1965 War stood out in the history as a symbol of unwavering national resolve, preparedness, professionalism, patriotism and sacrifice.

The president said the sons of soil fearlessly fought against the enemy and wrote a shining chapter in history.

He said we observe 6th of September as Defence & Martyrs Day to pay tribute to our martyrs and their families who sacrificed their lives for the motherland.

In his message on Defence and Martyrs' Day, Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar has said the 6th September is remembered as the day of vigor, bravery, courage and resilience.

He said this glorious day, where the entire Pakistani nation stood side by side with its Armed Forces, calls upon us to make a pledge to renew the spirit of loyalty and service to Pakistan and pay tribute to valiant sons of the soil who embraced 'Shahadat' while ensuring security of the nation.

The Prime Minister said the defence of the country is not limited to 6 September alone, rather stretches upon an entire lifetime and encompasses all dimensions of physical and ideological frontiers, which needs to be guarded.

He said today, when Pakistan is confronted with multiple security challenges in the shape of extremism, terrorism and external aggression, the entire nation stands united alongside their Defence Forces, to thwart evil designs against the integrity and prosperity of Pakistan.
