In a sad incident (as being covered on IMB), Lt. Col. Haroon Islam embraced Shahadat. He was the commandant of Pakistani Elite Commando force – SSG (Special Services Group). Reportedly, he was on front line working with the troops in intense firing of last night.
Lt. Col. Haroon, joined army in 1988 and started career with Baloch Regiment. He was graduated for Command & Staff College Quetta and joined SSG in 1993. He had splendid military career. Because of his meritorious services, he had been awarded Chief of Army Staff Commendation Card. He also fought at Siachin, Kargil & served in UN Missions outside Pakistan and he had a dire wish to die as Martyre.
His final namaz-e-jinaza will be offered on Tuesday mid day, as the mourning family is expecting relatives from outside Pakistan. May Allah grant him higher levels of Jannah for sacrificing his life for his country!
