Interview with Sawar Mohammad Shaheed Family

Jawan Sawar Muhammad Hussain Shaheed

Born 18th June 1949 in Dhok Pir Baksh (now Dhok Mohammad Husain Janjua).
Enlisted as a driver on 3 September 1966.

Although only a driver in the 20th Lancers, when war broke out in 1971, Sawar Mohammad Hussein took an active part in every battle in which his unit was engaged unmindful of any danger, no matter how grave.

When he spotted the enemy digging in along a minefield near the village of Harar Khurd in December 1971 on his own initiative he directed accurate fire at the enemy resulting in the destruction of sixteen enemy tanks.

But while directing fire from recoilless rifles, he was hit in the chest by a burst of machine-gun fire and died on 10 December 1971 at the age of 22.
