    Congrats to our great army on this highly commendable achievement in these tough times. Wish our corrup so called leaders leave our army alone and let them do their core business of protecting our lovely country which Allah has bestowed on us, Mashallah. You are the best without any doubt. May ALlah protect us from Kuffar, Ameen.

    I think we have lost the taste to appreciate even the best in ourselves. Our media and pseudo-intelligentsia has created a false perception in our hearts and ninds that we are the worse people on the face of the earth. No body questions the enormity of challenges we have been facing. If we even perform better in economy by doubling our production/productivity today, even that is not sufficient to manage the problems we have been facing. In fact every national and international players want us to fail as a nation; however, we are still there. Political leadership is just a small tip on the iceberg of the concept of nation. There are alot more details to nation/nationhood which I believe we are good in. Now is the time to learn to appreciate the best in ourselves. Just count the achievements we have done in the last 60 years and compare it with any comparable nation. You will find that we are better than so many other nations/states.So one should feel proud of such stories. Bravo Pakistan army!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Tariq says:

    They may be allegedly the best, but whose interests are they serving ?
    Whose war are they fighting ?

    This celebrating and proud praise is misplaced, when you consider that

    they have only been deployed by the US against our own people, and have been withdrawn against India when they were winning , again by the us sponsored treacherous rulers.

    • K. N. Iqbal says:

      To be the best in the world deserves praise and celebration. Whether some one agrees with the missions they are carrying out , where they are operating and against whom or not is purely based on some particular political affiliation, but it cannot detract from the fact that our boys proved that they are the best.

    • K. N. Iqbal says:

      To be the best in the world deserves both praise and celebration. Whether one agrees with the missions that they are carrying out is a matter of political opinion.

    This is the second good news, a couple of months ago ISI was declared the best Agency among top 10 Int Agencies of the world. Proud of ISI & Pak Army

  11. Farhan Hafiz says:

    We are proud of our Soldiers…. Long Live Pakistan Army !!!!

  12. Atif says:

    Our history tells us that we have won wars despite of all odds including less in numbers and with less technology of that time. It’s the will of Man which gives inner strength to resist and fight to last drop of blood. Our Military is a living example of that MA.

  13. Tariq says:

    Lets hope this gold medal army also defends the Pakistani people from the treacherous brown faced western client governments dynasty,
    The usuk bases taken back, the usuk repelled at the border, the supply lines cut, and the blackwater fbi spies rounded up and sent home.
    The false idol of democracy should be smashed, and the sincere Islamic ruling, with Islamic systems should be established. This is the Sunnah.

    • amir says:

      This govt is elected by the ppl of pakistan..hence it is you and me who have elected this govt ..y ask army to defend the ppl against the govt…you refer to sharia..ALLAh say ..your rullers are like you are.if you are good you will have good rullers if you are bad you will have bad rullers its so simple..stop balming others and look yopur inner self…

      • Tariq says:

        you misunderstand, i said it is a corrupt rigged system, designed to serve the interests of the enemy,
        How come the people want one thing and the government does something else then ? This is why army should defend the people againt treacerous government and system.
        This website is full of such examples.

        This proves it is not doing what the people want, and it should be replaced with Islamic System.
        We have these rulers because we did not follow Islam. It is our own fault we allowed this , so we should enjoin al-khair and forbid munkar and establish Islamic System.

  14. Muzaffar says:

    Thats y we solute our Army and I am sure if they compare us in Air-force again we will win Gold too

  15. Pakistan no doubt has the best army of the world long live Pakistan
