Patriotism is a passion that makes a nation active in case of foreign invasion. The history of Pakistan is full of such examples when Pakistani’s sacrificed their lives to protect their loving homeland. Many heroic soldiers died to defend their country in the war of 1965, 1971 and in Kargil war. Captain Muhammad Sarwar, Major Tufail Muhammad, Major Aziz Bhatti, Pilot Officer Rashid Minhas, Major Muhammad Akram, Major Shabbir Shaheed, Captain Karnal Sher Khan and Havaldar Lalak Jan are some of those heroes who fought fearlessly to defend their country Pakistan from its enemies in these wars. They died a martyr’s death for their country. All these brave soldiers earned Nishan e Haider, the greatest military award of Pakistan.
Love for one’s country is not mere a sentiment, it is a fiery passion. It motivate people and leads them to their goal. S. W. Scott says in his words about patriotism that a man who have not love for his country is like a dead person. Apparently, he seems to be alive in realty his soul is dead. He is a person who never feels love for his motherland. It is a duty of every person to love his country and at the time of need even shed his blood for its protection.
