Islamabad: The 51st martyrdom anniversary of Major Shabbir Sharif Shaheed, who was given country's highest military gallantry award, Nishan-e-Haider is being observed today.
Major General Malik Amir Muhammad Khan, General Officer Commanding, laid floral wreath at Major Shabbir Sharif Shaheed’s mausoleum in Lahore today.
A smartly turned out contingent of Pakistan Army presented guard of honour.
Various people from different walks of life, civil and military officials and relatives of Shaheed attended the wreath laying ceremony.
Born on April 28, he studied at Government College Lahore and received a call to join Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) Kakul. He was thus commissioned in Pakistan Army on April 19, 1964 after successfully completing his training.
Shabbir Sharif was posted to the 6th Battalion of the Frontier Force Regiment.
He embraced martyrdom while fighting the enemy at the Sulemanki Sector during the Indo-Pak War and was awarded the 'Nishan-e-Haidar' for his courage and bravery.
On December 3, 1971, he was commanding a company of 6 FF Regiment near Sulemanki Headworks when he was assigned the task of capturing the high bund (ground) overlooking the Gurmukh Khera and Beriwala villages in the Sulemanki sector.
A total of 43 enemy soldiers were killed in this well-nigh superhuman action, and another 28 were taken prisoners.
Moreover, four enemy tanks were also destroyed.
Major Shabbir Shareef caused huge damage to the enemy troops and tanks—embracing martyrdom on 6 December, 1971.
At the time of martyrdom, Major Shabbir Shareef Shaheed was just 28-year old.
