"Do not lose the bridge", were his last words.

It was the first attack laid by Indians in the broad day light. Countless men with the support of tanks and artillery were attacking wave after wave. For the last three days, this position was the center of attention for the Indians. On December 03, a small company of Pakistan Army, under the command of Major Shabbir Sharif captured the heavily fortified Indian position.

Verily it was a surprise for the Indians and they were in a constant struggle to take back the bridge from Pakistanis. In spite of various attempts, after sacrificing countless men, including company commander of 4 Jaat regiment (Major Narayan Singh) and loosing many tanks; enemy was still unable to take the bridge back.

All the attacks were made in the dark, but this attack was made in day light. On a small concentration of Bravo Company of 6FF, the strength of a full brigade with the help of cavalry and artillery. Every single person of 6 FF was engaged on various positions that time. Major Shabbir was also manning an anti tank gun at that time. A night before, he was injured when Major Narayan threw a phosphorus grenade on him. In response, Major Shabbir killed him with Narayan's own gun after a hand to hand combat and dragged his body to the Pakistani area.

Enemy weaved a net of fire on the Pakistani concentration. Being their former position, enemy was well aware of the grid references and was directing artillery fire with pin point accuracy. IAF Migs were flying in the area and enemy soldiers were laying intense fire as well.

Major Shabbir spotted two tanks coming towards his position. He fired first shell and the tank exploded like a hydrogen balloon. He loaded the second shell and fired on the other tank, but this was missed. Enemy noticed his position, so the other tank took the aim at him. Instead of leaving the position, he ordered his man to load the third shell. But before his fire, enemy tank fired and the shell launched by enemy tank landed inches near him. The bursting shell tossed him many feet above the ground. Before landing on the ground, his soul left his earthly abode. His last words were, “Do not lose the bridge".

His men kept his words and the bridge was under Pakistani Control till the end. Major Hidayat Ullah was the person who took over the company after Major Shabbir Sharif
He is the only person to have been awarded both the Sitara-e-Jurrat and Nishan-e-Haider, although they were given on separate occasions he is also a recipient of Sword of Honour and holds a unique honor of having received the three most coveted awards of Pakistan Army. Major was fondly known as Superman by his colleagues and superiors.

General Shamim was born in 1937 to Mehboob Alam Khan and Amirun Nisa Begum, a couple whose all nine sons joined Pakistan’s armed forces and fought for the protection of the country either in 1965 or 1971 wars against India.

Gen Shamim joined the army in 1956 and retired in 1994 as the chairman of the JCSC.

Mehboob Alam Khan’s sons are known as Alam brothers. Among them, five served in the army, three in the air force and one in the navy.

According to Lawrence College Ghora Gali, “all the nine Alam Khan brothers are old Gallians. “What sets these brothers apart is that all nine joined defence forces, fought for Pakistan in 1965 and 1971 and earned huge respect. Two of the nine brothers embraced shahadat, one in 1967 while on duty and the other in the 1971 war.”

Their mother Amirun Nisa was once asked how she felt about having all her sons in the forces and on war front at the same time. She saidif she had more sons, she would have happily sent them to defend the motherland.

“There is no known example of any such family in Pakistan or abroad where a set of nine brothers joined the forces, fought for the country, earned recognition at the state level with two embracing martyrdom,” says the website of the college.

According to Dr Najeeb, Brig Zahir Alam Khan, Col Firoz Alam Khan, Sq Ldr Shuaib Alam Khan, General Shamim, Maj Aijaz Alam Khan, Vice Admiral Shamoon Alam Khan, Wing Commander Aftab Alam Khan, Flight Office Mushtaq Alam Khan and Lt Gen Javed Alam Khan are brothers and they simultaneously served in the armed forces and took part in wars.

According to a report of their Alma matter, six of the nine brothers fought the 1965 war as the two younger ones — Aijaz Alam Khan and Javed Alam Khan — had not joined the army till then and the eldest, Zahir Alam Khan, was out of the country.
