The 6th of September 1965 is the day when the Indian forces sneaked into the Wagah border and the Pakistan armed forces, when alerted, put up a valiant defence of the motherland and drove them back, thus taking its name as the Defence of Pakistan Day.Later, it began to be observed not only to recall the exploits of our jawans in the September war, but also during the other aggressive wars the country has had to face since the partition. Homage is paid to those who laid down their lives in the sacred cause and wreaths are laid at the graves of especially those 10 martyrs who distinguished themselves for their extraordinary valour and were awarded the coveted Nishan-e-Haider.
