Our eternal enemy tried to start a civil war, but the political and military leadership foiled this plot with strategy and wisdom. We will sacrifice our lives but we will not bow down to the enemy. Our nuclear assets are in safe hands due to the strong forces of Pakistan. From 1947 till today, every individual, soldier and martyr who sacrificed their lives for Pakistan owes a debt to the nation.

Be it the cases of imposition of war by the neighbouring country or the scourge of terrorism, the martyrs always stood in the front line and faced every challenge with determination.There is no difference between the perpetrators of the shameful incident of May 9 and the anti-national terrorists. As a nation, we must pledge to gather all our energy and take measures to ensure that this incident never happens again.
