@Critical thinker....!!!: Well.... Was rather shook up at the moment, as I knew the Shaheed officers.... I had met both of them before and I was rather shocked as to how quick things had happened..... The Cobra gunship had landed on the runway, near the tarmac, but somehow ended up 200m away from the original landing spot.... Then again, this is not really very secretive information..... My salute to these brave Pilots of Pakistan Army, who were martyred... God Rest their souls...... I too hope to enroll into the army.... Yet, incidents like this make me rethink.... What emotions would my Family go through (especially my Mother), If I were to embrace the honour of Shahadat? Of course, they would be very proud but you cannot deny the sadness of the death of a very close family member .... And I think of the Bravery of these Fine young men, who are willing to give their lives in the name of Allah Almighty..... God Bless... Pakistan Army Zindabad!!!
