Our Sharjeel: In the memory of Captain Sharjeel Shahid Shinwari Shaheed

A couple of weeks back, Captain Sharjeel Shahid Shinwari, a doctor in Pakistan Army got ambushed in Waziristan by the militants and succumbed to the IED placed by the road side while visiting patients in a forward military camp. I wrote about the martyred captain in my exclusive post at 'Another son f the soil falls in the line of duty.'

Now another mutual friend of mine and the father of the martyred captain, who himself is in distress these days, remembered the martyred son of the soil in a poem exclusively written for him. Not a man of letter, but his distress has taught him to use his pen and express his thoughts so beautifully that one can feel the pain of a father who has undergone the tragedy of losing his son in the service of the country.

Here it is, written in Urdu. I have tried to translate it into English for my readers who cannot understand Urdu - though my effort cannot match the true feelings reflected by my friend, but it may convey the meanings to some extent.

"Sharjeel Hamara"

Dedicated to my platoon mate Maj Shahid Noor his Family and 55th PMA

Suno aik Ferzand-e-Touheed ki kahani
meray nacheeze bandey ki zubani
(listen to the story of a son of a soil - from a humble person like me)

May his soul rest in peace Aameen. Qoum ko fakhar hai Capt Sharjeel per.

Stay happy and blessed always !
