Standing guard!

Read @ A soldier’s Eid: Away from family and in the face of death

I was aware that by the time this operation ends, some of us may not live to see the next day.

That day, when the operation ended, two of my friends who were having pakoras with me a few hours ago, were resting in body bags; a few others were clinging to their lives at CMH Rawalpindi.

This Eid and the others that soldiers like myself had spent away from their families is very small a price that we pay in return of the love and respect that we receive from you people, and the comfort we get in the thought that as we stand guard, other Pakistanis can treasure moments with their families.
