Namaz-e-Janaza of Brigadier Syed Hussain Abbas Shaheed, who embraced Shahadat in Khyber Agency the other-day was held here at Corps Headquarters. The Namaz-e-Janaza was attended among others by Governor NWFP Owais Ahmed Ghani, IGP Malik Naveed and other high ranksing officials of the civil and military administration. He was survived by two daughters and two sons. He was born in 1965 and joined Pakistan Army in 1986 and inducted in Punjab Regiment. He had also served in United Nations in 1993. After the funeral, talking to local media men Zulfiquar Hussain, father of late brigadier said that he is proud of his sons martyrdom who laid down his life for the defense of the motherland. The cool and calm Zulfiqar Hussain said that my son was very brave, courageous and composed since his childhood and was not afraid from the danger. He said that Pakistan Army officers and jawans have chased the militants in their strongholds and destroyed their hideouts and bunkers. Col Naeem, class fellow/course mate of late Brigadier Hussain said that he wanted martyrdom and Allah Almighty accepted his will. He said that whole army is proud on his chivalry and courage. Retd Ahmed Nawaz who was instructor of Brigadier Hussain at PMA Kakul said that his pupil lost his life for a noble cause and the entire nation is proud of Hussains sacrifice. I do not find words to express my gratitude to the late Brigadier, saying he was a brilliant soldier who achieved distinction during the course at PMA and stood sixth in the course. He was my cadet; I trained him and later joined my unit after commission. He passed out as senior under officer from the PMA. [Courtesy: Express News]
