Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa met the family of martyred army officer Lt Nasir Hussain Khalid yesterday, paying tribute to the brave army officer for laying down his life for the motherland.
According to a statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Gen Bajwa “acknowledged resolve of the shaheed’s family and paid tribute to the brave officer” during the meeting.
“General Qamar Javed Bajwa, COAS, visited family of Lieutenant Nasir Hussain Khalid Slehria Shaheed, at Rawalpindi on Wednesday. COAS prayed for the departed soul and offered Fateha. COAS acknowledged resolve of shaheed’s family and paid tribute to the brave officer for laying [his] life in the line of duty defending the motherland,” tweeted the ISPR.
“No threat can deter resolve of a Nation which is united, resilient and honours its heroes”. Lt Nasir was martyred earlier this month during an IED explosion in North Waziristan. He was laid to rest at the K.H. Khurshid Football Stadium.
His funeral prayers were attended by a large number of people that also included AJK President Sardar Masood Khan and Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider.
