‘Hamein Pyar Hai Pakistan Say’ (We love Pakistan) – a special campaign launched by the Pakistani military’s media wing – became the top trend on popular microblogging site Twitter on Friday.

Thousands of users shared tweets to pay glowing tributes to the martyrs and the nation ahead of Defence Day, September 6.

“Our Nishan-e-Haider, our pride,” Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said in a tweet from his official account.

The tweet also featured a brief video clip of a song produced by the military’s media wing in connection with the Defence Day.

In an earlier tweet, the chief military spokesperson had said that the nation would pay tribute to its martyrs and their families on September 6 and every Pakistani would be a part of this ‘unique campaign’.

Media practitioners, students and bloggers took to Twitter to share their views on Defence Day and to pay rich tributes to the armed forces of the country.
