The history of Pakistan is marked with golden chapters one of them being the 6th of September when its armed forces defended the country in 1965.
The day is still observe after a passage of 52 years since India thrust another war upon Pakistan with disastrous results and dismemberment of the country.
People strongly feel that it is now more important to remember the 6th September, 1965, as it was Pakistan’s finest hour.
The 6th of September is important because the war between Pakistan and India that followed was fought by Pakistan as a nation united in its determination and resolve to stop and repel the attacks by India.
While a number of decisions made by the army high command during the four wars fought by the country have been the subject of controversy, what has remained unquestioned is the valour displayed by thousands of jawans and young officers in all these conflicts.
There are those of the mindset who feel that 6th September should be renamed “memorial day”.
