KARACHI: JS Bank, one of Pakistan’s fastest growing banks, marked ‘Youm-e-Shahuda’ on September 6 – Defence Day – at the JS Bank Triangle in Karachi. The event commenced with recitation of the Holy Quran, followed by prayers for the people from all walks of life who rendered sacrifices for the beloved nation. This was followed by the laying of a floral wreath by JS Bank President and CEO Basir Shamsie. Speaking on the occasion, Shamsie stated, “Today, we recall the words of Quaid-e-Azam, ‘there is no power on earth that can undo Pakistan’. The 6th of September is a day of national significance. Today, we mark the successful defence by our armed forces against unprovoked aggression in the 1965 war as well as pay tribute to those who have laid down their lives for our homeland. In memory of the Shahuda who made the sacrifice, let us pledge that we will live up to their memory and do all we can to take our country forward.”
