Incident leading to Death (Shahadat)
At the time of India-Pakistan War of 1971, Lance Naik Muhammad Mahfuz was
serving in Company “A” of 15 Punjab Regiment deployed on the Wagah-Attari
Sector. On the night of December 17-18, his company was assigned the task of
occupying Phul Kanjri village located in the same sector. Lance Naik
Muhammad Mahfuz was assigned to Platoon No. 3, which was designated as the
forward unit in the assault. Thus this Platoon had to face torrential
volleys of enemy fire from concrete Pill boxes.When the entire Company “A”
was about 70 yards from the Indian position, it was pinned down by an
unceasing frontal and cross fire from automatic weapons. On top of that the
enemy artillery also opened up its fire with the break of dawn. Mahfuz,
whose machine-gun was destroyed by an enemy shell, charged towards the
Indian defences.His heroic feat led to the success of the Pakistani assault.
For his supreme courage, Lance Naik Muhammad Mafuz Shaheed was awarded
Nishan-i-Haider, the highest Military award of Pakistan.
