ستمبر کو ہندوستان کی فخر ہند ڈویژن پٹھان کوٹ روڈ سے نیچے اتر کر موضع باجرہ گڑھی-پھلوڑہ سے ہوتا ہوا چونڈہ کی طرف ایڈوانس کرچکا تھا۔ حملہ آور کا نشانہ بننے والے شہری اور دیہاتی سرحدی علاقوں سے سیالکوٹ کا
رخ کر رہے تھے۔ گائیڈز کیولری موضوع بڈیانہ کے قریب روپ چھل تھی۔۔۔


1640211077971.png


لیفٹینٹ حسین شاہ کا ذاتی ٹینک راستے سے تقریباً 50 گز دور روپ چھل تھا۔ اور موصوف جالے کے اندر بیٹھے خون آلود آنکھوں سے یہ منظر دیکھ رہے تھے۔ اسی اثنا میں ایک نوجوان عورت جس کے سر پر دوپٹہ نہیں تھا، عجب بے چارگی کی عالم میں بھاگ رہی تھی۔ لیفٹینٹ حسین شاہ یہ دیکھ کر بے قابو ہوگئے۔۔۔


اور اپنے ٹینک عملے کے ایک فرد کو آواز دی کہ میری بہن کو راستے پر روک دو اور فوراً واپس آؤ۔ چنانچہ جوان بھاگتا ہواگیا اور اس عورت کو راستے پر روک دیا۔ اس عرصے میں موصوف نے اپنا ذاتی بستہ کھولا۔ اس میں سے ایک جوتا، سفید چادر، اپنا ناشتہ اور کچھ پیسے نکالے اور ٹینک عملے کے۔۔۔


ایک جوان سے کہا کہ میری بہن کے سر پر فوراً چادر دے دو۔ کھانا بھی اس کے حوالے کرو، اور یہ پیسے دے کر اس کو بتاؤ سڑک قریب ہے۔ وہ بھاگ کر نہ جائے، سڑک پر اس کو سواری مل جائے گی۔ جوان نے یہ تمام اشیاء پریشان حال خاتون تک پہنچائیں۔ حسین شاہ اس درد انگیز مناظر کو برداشت نہ کرسکے۔۔۔

اور ٹینک کے دوسری طرف جاکر بیٹھ گئے۔ ان کی آنکھیں سرخ تھیں اور فرط جذبات سے ان کی زبان اپنے جذبات کے اظہار سے قاصر تھی۔ دوسری صبح 11 ستمبر 1965 کو جب یونٹ کو دشمن سے نبرد آزما ہونے کا موقع ملا تو لیفٹینٹ حسین شاہ ٹینک پر سوار ہوگئے اور موت و زندگی سے بے نیاز ہوکر آگے بڑھتے۔
چلے گئے۔ یہاں تک کہ اپنی جان قربان کر کے ہمیشہ کیلئے زندہ ہو گئے۔​
