One day before his martyrdom Captain Bilal Shaheed was talking with his best friend and colleague in his room. He said Captain Raheel that Bilal would be martyred and Raheel as a Ghazi. At that time he was preparing for his most notorious work in the high mountains of the Peochar Valley. Captain Raheel’s eyes were often filled with tears, but she still maintains a military composure and pride by describing last night’s action. Captain Bilal Shaheed, who returned from a successful operation in Buner on May 5, 2009, received a message from his commanding officer that he had been assigned to a difficult task in the Valley Peochar (Operation Jahanbaz).
The Special Services Group (SSG) needed to open the Swat-Peochar road, which was essential for their further operational rehabilitation. It was necessary to capture the Ghuzano Sar top (now Bilal top) for the success of the entire operation. Previous attempts to capture this top have not been successful. Captain Bilal Shaheed gladly received this warning order and engaged in preparations with his company commander and fellow officer. Both were also selected for this operation. Preparing for the mission, he accompanied Captain Raheel as he prepared for the moment. He asked Raheel to go to his house personally and tell her mother if he met the martyr.
He also told him to prepare a funeral prayer. Captain Bilal also said to Raheel that his body should be shrouded in the Pakistani flag. He should be buried with full military honors and ceremonies. Later he tied all his things On May 17, 2009, in the room. Certainly, Bilal knew of the golden tomorrow, which set him on a high path for those who sacrificed their lives for the safety and security of their land. In this unique moment and the magic of his love for the PAK army, Bilal sent a message from his cellular phone to Captain Raheel. He told him to read it after he left for the mission.
Captain Bilal was entrusted with the task of clearing and occupying the Ghuzano Sar Ridge in the Peochar Valley, which is the key to further the operation’s progress. Despite strong intercepts and extremely harsh terrain, Captain Bilal along with his battle group advanced and contacted the miscreants and cleared the munitions. After completing his assigned task, Captain Bilal decided to go ahead and clear the next position. The miscreants had offered strong resistance after losing their first position and were not allowing Captain Bilal Shaheed to proceed.
Captain Bilal immediately reacted to every situation and from the front, hit his chest with a rocket and embraced the last wish of any soldier on the spot. He always said that pills could never harm me, and that was true. He got a direct hit with a rocket Propeller grenade (RPG) and then the martyr hugged him. Captain Bilal was a good-hearted and caring man. He always enjoyed love and affection under his senior commands. He was an obedient and disciplined officer. Later he was awarded the Sitara e Basalt.
His last message has been spread widely across print and electronic media. He had this to say:
“In the thunderstorms of bombs, some just don’t stop. Knowing that he is surrounded by death. Knowing that they can leave their wives free and children orphans. But they just keep moving because something is pumping into their hearts. And is flowing in their veins, known as honor, devotion, and encouragement. That is why they say death before disgrace. Live long Pakistan Army”
He has gone to the grave with the honor that his martyrdom had come after him, and he and his chosen 50-man squad had completed the task assigned to them. Seven days after the air and ground attacks, the same task was completed. That was the only case of the operation, which shows how dedicated Bilal was to that purpose.
