Islamabad: Beaconhouse Margalla Girls Campus takes pride in commemorating all the national days with great eagerness and passion. To celebrate the spirit of Defence Day, a special assembly presentation was held on September 6, 2019. Defence and Martyrs Day is observed to pay tributes to the martyrs and soldiers for laying their lives to maintain peace. Beaconites understood that they too play a role and reaffirmed their commitment to defend the motherland against all threats. This year, Defence and Martyrs Day was observed as Kashmir Solidarity Day to reassure the support of Pakistani nation to the oppressed people of Indian-occupied Kashmir. A war veteran, Retired Air Commodore Mahmood Gul, who is the rightful recipient of Sitara-i-Imtiaz (Military), was invited as the chief guest speaker to honour the occasion and to share his experiences of Indo-Pak war. He narrated inspirational stories of bravery, valour and sacrifices shown by the armed forces. The program included thought-provoking speeches, awe-inspiring national songs and poetry which further augmented the spirit as the students, wearing green dupattas (long scarfs), waved Pakistani and Kashmiri flags. The ceremony was concluded by Principal Ayesha Ansar who greatly appreciated Beaconites’ efforts.
