Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar visited the residence of Lance Naik Muhammad Taimur Aslam at Pir Colony in Walton who embraced martyrdom due to unprovoked firing of the Indian army at LOC and met with his father, maternal grandfather and other family members.

Usman Buzdar paid rich tributes to the great sacrifice of Muhammad Taimur Aslam for the defense of the country and prayed for him. The whole nation pays tributes to the bravery of Taimur Aslam who rendered his life for the beloved motherland, he said. September 6 is an occasion to express solidarity with the families of the martyrs. I am heartened that the courage of the family of Taimur Aslam is strong and praiseworthy as martyred army jawans are the pride of the nation, he said.

The martyrs have sacrificed their today to secure the tomorrow of the nation. He assured that the Punjab government is always available to provide any possible support to the martyr’s family. The 22 crore people of Pakistan are proud of Muhammad Taimur Aslam and the nation, whose youth is filled with the passion of martyrdom, cannot be defeated, he added.

Our armed forces will continue to foil the nefarious designs of the enemy, he said. All the three armed forces of Pakistan are fully vigilant and active to defend the country and no one can look at Pakistan with an evil eye, he concluded.
