This year Pakistanis will celebrate defence day on Monday 6th September 2021.
On 6th September, 1965 we commemorate the sacrifices of our brave soldiers who fought in the war and kept us safe. The Pakistani Armed Forces (PAF) played a critical role during this battle, and thus every year on Defence Day, we remember their efforts.
The Indian Army attacked the Pakistani border on 6th September, 1965. It was a time of conflict when not only did our brave soldiers fight for their country, but everyone else had to unite and defend it successfully by pulling back all fronts from India.
History of 6th September (Defence day)
The enemy invaded our borders on 6th September 1965, with the intention of seizing Indian Occupied Kashmir. They were mostly targeting Lahore, Sialkot and Sindh desert areas in Pakistan. The war continued until 22nd September, when both sides agreed to ceasefire supervised by UNO (United Nations Organization).
Indian Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri added more fuel to the fire by taking measures of integrating Kashmir into India’s political body and claiming that the Kashmir question occupied a secondary position in effective India-Pakistan relations. The Presidential Rule in Kashmir attempted to break the state and its people away from Pakistan, allowing India to control it entirely.
In the early morning of 6th September, 1965, India attacked Pakistan. The attack was a three-pronged offensive against Lahore and Sialkot in West Punjab as well as Rajasthan. In addition to crossing international lines without declaring war first, there has been fierce tank battles on the plains while Indo Pak relations turned into an international conflict that raised questions about Super Power status around the world

Our Military defendant us
To honor our military personnel who sacrificed their lives, we should appreciate all those living veterans and active-duty soldiers who helped the fallen survive. On defence day, our nation has an obligation to protect civilians as well as thousands of homes targeted by terrorists on 6th September during Defence Day celebrations. We owe this gratitude for protecting areas under attack and because many families live in peace thanks to these sacrifices made with no regard for life or personal well-being.
Defence Day Martyrs
Many national heroes have been awarded for their gallantry and courage. Major Raja Aziz Bhatti is among the handful martyred in 1965, defending the Lahore Bedian region against Indian aggression. He was also given Pakistan’s highest military decoration – Nishan-e-Haider, which honors individuals’ extraordinary acts of velour while at war with an opposing force or during times of hostility facing imminent danger from such forces on land, sea, or air. (Pakistan Defence Forces) In general terms, Pakistani soldiers are brave battalions that always stood up to fight due to overwhelming odds; they fought valiantly till their last breath/drop blood.
We are a strong nation
Defence Day is a day to celebrate our military and the country’s courage and fighting spirit. It represents Pakistan’s ability to fight against any foreign power that may try to bully us into submission. Military personnel is, above all else, symbols of pride for their fellow citizens because they represent Pakistani society in its best form: united under one cause – freedom from oppression at home or abroad.

Become powerful nation after the war of 1965
On September 1965, the war with India was won. The country felt proud and supported its armed forces for making it happen. They made sure that national unity played a major role in this victory, along with complete support for what they were doing on the field of battle. Thanks to Pakistan’s Army, Indian aggression ended up costing them four times more land than us while also forcing them into accepting peace treaties by vacating our territory.”
As Pakistanis, we all have this spirit of brotherhood in our hearts. If you dare to hurt one of us, the rest will stand together as brothers and sisters under one flag-the Pakistani Flag. No color or caste unites us; therefore, your threat is useless against us.
Our Military in Pakistan
We should all be proud of our powerful armed forces and their constitutional role in protecting the country’s physical frontiers and defence against external threats. Despite economic challenges, we are secured from these potential dangers due to Asia’s most substantial military power that many worldwide consider worthy of honor for its sacrifices.
The military not only engages in warfare but also contributes to the country during peacetime. When disaster strikes, they often come and provide relief services such as floods or earthquakes. Many institutions of the armed forces like schools and universities contribute by providing vital service to civilians too.
