The 55th Martyrdom Day of the National Hero Major Raja Aziz Bhatti Shaheed who defended his homeland in the Pak-India War of September 1965 is being commemorated today.
Raja Aziz Bhatti Shaheed was born in Hong Kong on August 6, 1928. Before the formation of Pakistan, his family returned and settled in Gujarat.
Major Aziz Bhatti was commissioned in the Punjab Regiment as a Second Lieutenant and became a Major in 1956.
In September 1965, when the enemy inflicted bloodshed on the homeland, Major Aziz Bhatti Shaheed was ordered to stop the advance of the enemy on the Burki sector. Demonstrating abilities did not allow the enemy to take a step forward.
On September 12, 1965, when the enemy was shelling the Pak army, Major Aziz Bhatti came out of the front and gave instructions to his soldiers. Meanwhile, a cannonball hit Major Aziz Bhatti and he defended the motherland.
In recognition of his unparalleled sacrifice and bravery in defending the enemy and national defense, the government awarded Raja Aziz Bhatti Shaheed the Nishan Haider, Pakistan’s highest military honor, the third grandson of Pakistan to receive the award.
