Captain Bilal Zafar Shaheed (Sitara-e-Basalat)

Today is the 3rd Youm-e-Shahadat of Captain Bilal Zafar Shaheed.

On May 17th 2009, Capt Bilal Zafar (SB) left his unit after meeting his friend and brother Captain Zarrar Zafar who is also serving in Pak Army as SSG Commando. Somehow Bilal knew that he was going to be martyred; he completed his will prior to his death and advised his brother to take care of parents. He even asked his friend Captain Raheel to lead his Namaz-e-Janaaza.

On 5:30 AM, during an assault on Ghuzano Sar Top (now called Bilal Top) he was hit by sniper shot on his arm but he continued his operation as he always said and I quote “Bullet can never harm me”. Later he got hit by Rocket Propeller Grenade (RPG) and embraced Shahadat at the spot.
