his family belong to village Karore, Tehsil Kotli Sattian. This village is located at a high plateau dominating area up to Attock and is mostly inhabited by old and traditional Abbasi tribe. This lofty mountainous top has nurtured many Ghazi and Shaheed. It is a town where soldiery is taken as an ancestral inheritance and offering life in the line of duty is like a sacred custom. It is an Eagle nest where only Eagles are born, live, fight and die.
Captain Bilal Zafar Abbasi-Family Military Background
Capt Bilal Zafar, He belonged to a noble family with Military background.Captain Zafar Abbasi, ex Pak Army officer Participated In1971 War; where he fought like a hero...joined Army in 1969.
His Great Grandfather Subedar Lal Khan participated in World War 1 and was conferred with King George Cross for his gallantry. Subedar Lal Khan’s son and Captain Bilal Shaheed’s Grandfather, Colonel Tajamal Hussain wrote new chapters of bravery and commitment to the nation. He participated in World War II on Singapore front. Later his love for freedom compelled him even to revolt against British Raj. After creation of Pakistan in 1947, Colonel Tajamal volunteered to fight for freedom of Kashmir against Indian aggression. He commanded a Mujahid Brigade on Bagh – Uri front and stalled Indian advance which was intended to reach Muzafarabad. For his meritorious services, he was later conferred with Fakhr-e-Kashmir award. Not only from paternal side, Capt Bilal’s veins had martial blood from his maternal grandfather Major Majeed and uncle Major Haider as well. Captain Zafar, father of Bilal Shaheed also followed the traditions of the family and joined Army in 1969.
After getting release, he fully devoted himself to his two sons and four daughters. Mrs Zafar gave her full support to her husband in training his sons for great heroic deeds. This Lady is a living example of dedication, patriotism and fortitude. Of course, these words derive their meanings from these characters. Their both sons were Black Belts even before joining PMA Kakul. They were trained very hard to do the deeds which only heroes can dare to do.
This family pride and un-daunting soldierly spirit must be strong cause once Captain Bilal Shaheed told his best friend and his room mate, Captain Raheel that Bilal would be a Shaheed and Raheel is a Ghazi. He said so on night of 15 May 2009 while he was preparing for his most exigent task in high mountains of Peochar valley. Captain Raheel’s eyes often get filled with tears but still he maintains a soldierly composure and pride while narrating the proceedings of the last night. Captain Bilal Shaheed, who was just back from a successful operation in Buner On 5 MAY 2009, got the message from his commanding officer that he had been earmarked for a difficult task in Peochar valley (Operation Jahanbaz).
It was important for Special Services Group (SSG) to open Swat – Peochar road which was essential for their further operational sustenance. It was crucial to capture Ghuzano Sar Top (now Bilal Top) for the success of entire operation. Previous efforts to capture this Top could not succeed. Captain Bilal Shaheed very happily received this warning order and got busy in preparations alongwith his company commander and fellow officer ; both were also picked for this operation. While preparing very minutely for the mission, he also kept taking with Captain Raheel. He told Raheel to personally go to his home and inform his mother in case he meets Shahadat.
He also told him to lead his Janaza prayer. Captain Bilal, while tying up his backpack, also told Raheel that his dead body should be shrouded in Pakistani flag. He should be buried with full military honour and ceremony. Later he also packed his all belongings in the room. Surely Bilal knew about the golden tomorrow which would place him on high pedestal reserved for those who sacrifice their lives for the safety and security of their motherland. In the spell of those unique moments and out of his sheer love for Pakistan Army, Bilal sent a message to Captain Raheel from his cellular phone. He told him to read it once he had gone for the mission.
The message which now in circulation among all cellular phone holders in Pakistan is spreading like a fire reads, “
