Jawan Sawar Muhammad Hussain Shaheed
Jawan Sawar Muhammad Hussain Janjua Shaheed was born in Dhok Pir Bakhsh (now Dhok Muhammad Hussain Janjua named after him in commemoration of his Gallantry) in Gujar Khan on June 18, 1949. He joined Pakistan Army as a driver on September 3, 1966, at a very young age of 17 years. Although he was only a driver he always yearned to participate in active battle. At the time of the 1971 war he was attached with an old army unit known as “20 Lancers”. While his unit was engaged in the frontline area of Zafarwal-Shakargarh, he himself never missed an opportunity of taking over a machine-gun and firing on the Indian enemy, unmindful of any danger. It was on December 5, 1971, that while braving intense shelling and direct fire from enemy Indian tanks and infantry, he went from trench to trench delivering ammunition to the frontline soldiers. It was documented by his company men that on the following day, he went out with four fighting patrols and undertook most hazardous missions. However, it was on December 10, 1971, that he spotted the enemy digging in near village Harar Khurd along with the minefield laid out by Pakistan Army. He thus immediately informed the second-in-command of his unit. But simultaneously he moved, on his own initiative, from one anti-tank gun to another directing the crew to fire accurately at enemy tanks, and was thus responsible for the destruction of sixteen Indian enemy tanks. On the same day, at 04:00 pm, while directing fire from one of the recoilless rifles, he was hit on the chest by a burst of machine-gun fire from an enemy tank and thus died in action. Sawar Muhammad Hussain had the distinction of being the first Jawan (a rank of a foot soldier in Pakistan Army) to be awarded Nishan-e-Haider for his gallantry. He died at the age of 22.

Captain Karnal Sher Khan emerged as the symbol of mettle and courage during the Kargil conflict on the Line of Control (LoC). He set personal examples of bravery and inflicted heavy losses on the Indian enemy. He defended the five strategic posts, which he established with his Jawan’s at the height of some 17,000 feet at Guitar, and repulsed many Indian attacks.

Despite facing all odds, he leads a counter-attack and re-captured the lost parts. But during the course, he was hit by the machine-gun fire and embraced Shahadat or martyrdom at the same post.
