Defence Day of Pakistan marking the 52nd anniversary of the 1965 war is being celebrated with traditional fervour and solemnity across the country on Wednesday.

The day began with special prayers for the progress and prosperity of Pakistan, followed by change of guard ceremonies at the mausoleums of Allama Iqbal in Lahore and Quaid-i-Azam in Karachi, and a ceremony at the Pakistan Navy headquarters in Islamabad.

Former army chief retired Gen Raheel Sharif reached Lahore's Miani Sahib graveyard, where he laid a floral wreath on the grave of his brother Maj Shabbir Sharif, who lost his life during the 1971 war on Dec 6 at Sulemanki Sector. The former army chief also offered fateha.

A number of events are scheduled to be held in connection with Defence Day across the country. The highlight of the day will be a function to be held at General Headquarters in Rawalpindi to pay tribute to the martyrs.
