    Hilal-i-Jurat: Hilal-i-Jurat (Crescent of Courage) is the second highest military award ofP akis tan. It was established in 1957 after Pakistan became a Republic, however, it was instituted retrospectively
    back to 1947. Only officers serving in the Pakistani armed forces are eligible for the award and it is
    conferred for acts of valour, courage or devotion to duty. It is considered to be roughly equivalent to
    the Distinguished Service Order under the British honours system and the United States

    Distinguished Service Cross. The Hilal-i-Jurat is the Pakistan's second highest military award, behind the Nishan-i-Haider, and it is awarded to officers from the Pakistan Army, Navyand Air Force for "acts ofvalour,courage or devotion to duty in the face of the enemy".[3] The decoration may be awarded
    for leadership and as such is considered roughly equivalent to the British Distinguished Service
    Order and the United States Distinguished Service Cross. It was established on 16 March 1957,
    after Pakistan became arepubl ic in 1956. Prior to that Pakistan had been adominion of Great
    Britain and had as such come under the British honours system. When the award was established,
    however, it was instituted retrospectively back to 15 August 1947—the date of Indian Independence
    and Partition of India—and it was subsequently conferred on a number of Pakistani officers for

    service during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947. The first four recipients of the Hilal-e Jurat were Brigadier Mian Hayaud-Din; Brigadier
    Mohammad Aslam Khan (brother of Air Marshal Mohammad Asghar Khan—the first Pakistani to
    become Commander-in-Chief of the Pakistan Air Force); Brigadier Nawabzada Sher Ali Khan
    Pataudi and Major General Mohammad Ayub Khan.

    The first three officers named above received the award for valour and distinction in combat,
    commanding Pakistani troops and volunteers in operations against Indian forces in Kashmir, in
    conformity with the criteria for the award. Ayub Khan, however, was not serving in Kashmir nor
    was he involved in combat with Indian Army forces anywhere at that time. He was the commander
    of Pakistani troops in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) about 1000 miles away from Kashmir, as
    General Officer Commanding (GOC) of the single Division of the Pakistan Army that formed the
    garrison there. He was awarded the Hilal-i-Jurat for dealing with smugglers operating across the
    border between India and East Pakistan.

    Later, these were awarded in 1965, when there were military actions in the Rann of Katch in the spring and the following war with India in September. Since then further awards were made.

    Our Gen Zia received no award during his service in PA. Kindly correct. This mistake has crept into Wikipedia also.

    Zia ur rehman was Hilal e jurrat from Pakistan army and he was from East Bengal Regiment or The Senior tigers.

    No it is no mistake. There is 2 Zia. One Is Zia Ur Rehman from East Bengal regiment and another is Zia ul Haq. Zia ul haq may be not awarded but Zia ur rehman was. Senior tigers won 2 Hilal e jurat among em 1 is Zia and 9 tamgha e jurrat.
