I would have liked to hear a 21 gun salute for our hero M M Alam, but no one took any notice of his first death anniversary. A nation that forgets its heroes can never become great. I just want to remember and salute this great hero of the 1965 war- Air Cmdr. (retd) M. M. Alam who breathed his last in Karachi, on March 18 last year. May his soul rest in peace. We shall not forget those who made us proud as Pakistanis through their feats and sacrifices, for the nation and motherland.
