He said the enemy knew that entering into Pakistani soil was mean to meet the death.
Salim Bokhari said that Pakistani forces’ defense was very strong in September 6 war, adding that on one side the biggest war of tanks was being fought at Chawinda and Chamb Jaurian where the brave sons of the motherland were making the graveyard of enemy’s tanks and on the other hand pilots of Pakistan Air Force like MM Alam were destroying taking the jets of the enemy down. He said the enthusiasm was unforgettable.
PJ Mir said that the Pakistan army forced the enemy to bite the dust in the September war. He said those, who wanted to sip a cup of tea at Lahore Gymkhana, went to hell with the defeat on their faces.
Javed Iqbal said that India had faced defeat in 1965 and now once again in 2021, it was facing embarrassment for conspiring against Pakistan.
