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, “

In da Roars Of da thunder of bombs.........There are a few who just don't stop......knowing dat dey r surrounded by death,..........,..........knowing dat dey could leave their wives widow nd children Orphan,but,dey just keep on moving bcuz something is pumping in thier Hearts.......And flowing thorough their veins known as....... Honour....Devotion....Motivation!Death over Surrender....Dats why dey say

             Time,00:35 o'clock 16th of May 2009
How true, pure, dedicated and passionate was he in his love for Pakistan Army and the Nation. We all are too proud of you
Then around 2 O’clock in the morning, Captain Bilal, who was a thorough practicing Muslim, offered his Tahajad prayer. He just had two hours sleep and again ready to escort Captain Raheel to the mosque. Raheel still suffers from leg injury which he received during a successful encounter with terrorists in North Waziristan Agency in 2005. Raheel was later awarded Imtiazi Sanad for his gallantry act in which he was able to capture over 20 terrorist. Captain Raheel also confirmed with pride that Bilal, who was very punctual about his prayers, always made efforts to offer his prayers in the mosque. After that he went upstairs to say goodbye to his elder brother Captain Zarar Zafar. He knew where he was going for and what lay ahead so advised his brother to look after the family once he is no more among them. Zarar could feel this unusual behaviour of his loving brother. Tears touched his eyelids but he never allowed them to roll down. He wanted to see off his brother with a happy face. What a trying moment for a brother to say goodbye to a brother who is proceeding on a mission impossible. Only soldiers share this unique pride. Later all his colleagues accompanied him to the air strip. Bilal was on his way to Shahadat. His steps were guided and he was seeing a different world. So very quietly he moved and was the first person to sit in the helicopter. He was received by his superiors who had already decided to leave their comfortable offices and be with these fearless troops in this time of test and tribulation
 However, the enemy was well dug in at a very difficult but most dominating peak where he could also use terrain to the best of advantage. The creeping move forward to the target started late at night amidst prayers and patting. By 05:00 hours, the brave sons of SSG reached very close to the target. The decisive moment had come. All went ready to assault and charge on the enemy. The time had come for which Captain Bilal Shaheed always longed for. He was leading his men. They opened the fire and rushed to the target. The battle had begun. Enemy responded heavily with accurate fire. But the SSG Jahanbaz were too determined to move forward. Soon Bilal men were able to clear the first objective. They over-ran the enemy but remaining were still occupying yet another dominating nearby feature. Bilal kept leading his men with great courage, audacity and vigor. He moved further ahead. Major Sardar warned him of accurate and intense fire from the top but Bilal was on his way to glory and sacrifice. He was hit by a bullet on left arm but he did not stop. The enemy saw this brave soldier who could dislodge him from his position very soon. They could not allow him anymore. The enemy fixed his rocket launcher and fired.
Captain Bilal received a direct hit; The Captain looked towards the top and to his soldier. He wanted them to seize it at all cost. The soldiers were busy in fighting but heavens smiled affectionately towards this proud youth and gave him assurance of victory. He was soon dead medically but achieved the eternal life. He was successful in achieving his goal. His dream got fulfilled. He was another Shaheed of SSG and Pakistan Army. He had joined the Elite Club.
Bilal will be a living pride for his family and colleagues. This game of death happened in front of soldier’s eyes that caused them a great anger and revenge.
They charged and over-run the remaining enemy. They were successful in achieving Bilal’s mission. Ghuzano Sar Top must be proud to be now named as Bilal Top and with a fluttering Pakistani flag.
Bilal’s body arrives at his home. People witnessed a rare scene of a mother’s devotion to his son. She is stopping others not to weep as his son had already requested him during his last leave after completion of successful Buner Operation.
The Nature knows, the World knows, the whole creation knows and accept that Mothers can not stop their pearls, their tears once they lose their young sons. But they all witnessed this with profound deference, reverence, admiration and amazement! A bereaved mother stopping others not to weep over the dead body of his loving jewel.  What a patience, what a character! Once she was asked about his son, she just said he was a chosen one. She is proud of him. He was a Hero and Heroes die young.......
Though U Could Not
Grace Us With Time Bilal , But U Surely Blessed Us
With Precious Memories....
May Allah Rab-ul-Izzat Bless U Highest Mukkam In Jannat.....Ameen...
