As per news sources, a bright, smart, and courageous son of the soil, Captain Umer has lost his life in an IED blast. The blast took place in North Waziristan, while he was on his routine duty. According to a few sources, the young soldier just got married 7 months ago.
Social media users took it to Twitter to pay tribute to the young departed soul. Hats off to Captain Umer who unwaveringly stood tall to protect his motherland and its people. To the young hero, Umer Farooq Cheema who did not hesitate to give up on his today, only for our tomorrow, and embraced martyrdom in Waziristan.
Condolences from all over the country have been pouring out on social media.
Umer Farooq Cheema is just one of my young soldiers who lose their lives while protecting us. Not only is the Pakistan Army protecting our borders, but they are handling civil issues as well.
Furthermore, it is to be noted that the challenges faced by the Pakistan armed forces are no secret. Earlier, two other army soldiers also embraced martyrdom in exchange for fire with terrorists. It took place during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Spalga, Miranshah, and North Waziristan – tribal districts of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
These brave, tough, and resilient men leave everything behind to protect the sovereignty of the country – their families, lives, dreams. Above all, the only thing that matters to them is saving the people of Pakistan. Moreover, it goes without saying that the Pakistan Army deserves all our love and respect!
