ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Pakistan Navy day is being observed today (Saturday) to pay tributes to the Ghazis and war heroes whose sacrifices and gallant acts instill a renewed spirit in nation.

In his message on the occasion, Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi said that the day is reminiscent of a glorious chapter in our nation’s history when unmatched courage and unwavering commitment of Pakistan Navy quashed the pipe dreams and misplaced ambitions of our adversary.

He asserted that Pakistan Navy through a bold and daring Operation Somnath attacked Indian Radar Station at Dwarka and gained psychological ascendancy right at the onset of the war.

Subsequently a single prowling submarine, PNS/M GHAZI maintained unchallenged superiority at sea throughout the war.

Abbasi said this effectively led to the might of the Indian fleet including their aircraft carrier being confined inside the harbours.

The main ceremony pertaining to the day will be held in PNS Qasim, Karachi.

The families of the martyrs of Pakistan Navy have especially been invited to attend the prestigious ceremony.

A new video has also been released by Pakistan Navy to pay homage to the martyrs and Ghazis.
