Raheel Sharif offers Fateha over grave of martyred Major (R) Shabbir Sharif

LAHORE: The former Army chief General Raheel Sharif and family of the martyred Major (R) Shabbir Sharif offered Fateha and laid a floral wreath on the grave of the brave officer of the Pakistan Army.

He is the only person ever who received both the Nishan-e-Haider and Sitara-e-Jurat for his bravery. Major Shabbir Sharif sacrificed his life in the war of 1971 while fighting Indian forces.

His younger brother, General Raheel Sharif, became Chief of the Pakistan Army in 2013 and led a relatively successful military campaign against terrorists.

The nation along with the country’s armed forces is observing Defence Day today with a renewed pledge to continue safeguarding the geographical, ideological boundaries and territorial integrity of the motherland.
