ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Defence Day is being observed today with renewed pledge to defend the motherland against all threats.   

It was on 6th of September in 1965 that the Indian forces crossed international border in the darkness of night and attacked Pakistan but ever vigilant armed forces solidly backed by the nation foiled nefarious designs of the enemy.

The Day dawned with 31-gun salute at the Federal Capital and 21-gun salute at provincial capitals.

After Fajr prayers special prayers were offered for the progress and prosperity of the nation. Fateha and Quran Khawani will also be held for the martyrs.
