May Allah reward him with highest of eternal awards. Pakistan Zinda Baad.

God Bless his soul. He was a great man ,who made us proud with his selfless achievements.A Warrior fixes victory as a passion ,rather than a reason.

MM Alam (=) Pakistan. He represented the spirit of Pakistan as the founders envisaged. Smaller fighting force that outshone, out mauled the enemy with their brilliance. Their fervour was unmatched. MM Alam will always be a symbol of pride for all pakistani's for generations to come. Sir,we thank you for your service to our nation, we salute you and we shall pray for you always.

May Almighty God rest his soul in eternal peace. He was really a national hero whose patriotism and heroism was not given due recognition. He deserved to be promoted to the higher rank of Air Marshal. Instead he was grounded during 1971 war and confined to staff appointments in the Air HQ.
