RAWALPINDI/ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Sunday paid tribute to the mothers of martyrs on Mother’s Day and said Pakistan will remain undefeated till mothers who are ready to sacrifice their sons for the soil are present.

In his message, COAS said, “Salute to such mothers who sacrificed their sons as brave soldiers for Pakistan”

The COAS further said that the progress, Pakistan has made is due to the mothers of this nation.

The army chief also honoured the nation’s military mothers for their unwavering dedication and support for strengthening the entire nation. “Defeat is impossible with such high-spirited mothers in existence,” COAS said.

Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor took to Twitter and wrote, “Salute to brave mothers of our brave martyrs.”

“Mother is not just a physical entity. If so, their departure to heaven would’ve been an end to the relationship. Mother is name of an eternal feeling of love, care, security and selflessness.” “Love and respects for all Mothers esp brave Mothers of our brave Martyrs.”

Meanwhile International Mother’s Day was observed across the country as elsewhere in the world, with much affection.

The International Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year paying tributes and gratitude to mothers around the world.

It is a time to appreciate mothers and motherly figures, conveying gratitude for the hardships born in child-rearing.

The day was marked by high spirits and enthusiasm as various public and private organisations and schools arranged entertaining programmes for Mother’s Day celebrations.

Mother’s Day has been celebrated in Pakistan and the sub-continent at large for the past few years with tremendous zest. People send flowers and present Mother’s Day cakes, cards, mugs, sweets and other gifts to their mothers on this day.
