The 47th Defence Day is being celebrated in the country in the memory of sacrifices given by the soldiers and people of Pakistan against the Indian aggression on September 6, 1965.

The day is celebrated in the honour of those martyred soldiers and innocent people who successfully defended their homeland from the aggression of the enemy.

Pakistani forces courageously suppressed the Indian initiated attack on Lahore-Sialkot border on September 6, 1965. The war continued for almost 17 days causing causalities on both sides.

The war ended in a United Nation (UN) mandated ceasefire  and the subsequent issuance of the Tashkent Declaration.

The celebrations of the day began with the roaring echoes of a 31-gun salute in Islamabad along with 21 mortar-fires in all provincial capitals.

Special prayers were performed for the martyrs in the mosques across the army garrisons in the country.

Army officers like Captain Sarwar Shaheed, Major Tufail Shaheed, Major Raja Aziz Bhatti Shaheed, Major Shabbir Sharif Shaheed, Major Muhammad Akram Shaheed, Sawar Muhammad HussainShaheed, Lance Naik Muhammad Mehfooz Shaheed,and Havaldar Lalak Jan Shaheed were among may soldiers who sacrificed their lives for Pakistan.
