RAWALPINDI: Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said that sacrificing life for the defence of the motherland is the highest sacrifice that one can make.

According to a press release issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the army chief visited the families of Lt Col Raashid Kareem Baig, Lt Col Waseem Hayat and Sepoy Ghulam Raza at their homes on Saturday. All three were martyred.

During his visit, the army chief said that remembering the country’s heroes was a source of motivation for both forces and the nation.

“We can never thank enough families of our shuhada for their great sacrifice. It’s our duty to stay connected with them and we are lifetime responsible for their well being,” the statement quoted Gen Bajwa as saying.
