Another young life lost in the line of duty. Another young sacrifice for the long life of the motherland. At least 10 army personals embraced Shahadat in the North Waziristan in an IED attack while 4 jawans and an officer laid their lives during an operation in Baluchistan.
Captain Aqib Jawed and his men were attacked by unidentified militants while they were conducting a combing operation between Hushab and Turbat. The young captain has left his parents, a sister and a brother grieved over his untimely demise. He was about to get married after the Eid-UL-Azha on 24th August.
The shaheed, Captain Aqib Jawed was laid to rest in his home town, Sargodha. A number of locals, friends, and family attended his Namaz e Janaza.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi the Minister for foreign affairs praised the young soldier in his twitter post and so as many other Pakistanis. They thanked the Pakistan Army and their families for sacrificing their present for our future.

Captain Aqib Jawed’s father is a retired Navy officer. He talked to the media about his beloved son. He said Captain Aqib got the commission in 2015 and he got the captain’s rank in 2018. The proud father said he’s thankful to Allah, that his son embraced Shahadat. He said they had fixed Captain Aqib’s wedding after eid and now there won’t be a wedding, but he’s happy that his son has become an inspiration for all his family and the whole area.
