Islamabad- Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) has urged upon the new government to use all available options to improve security situation in the country to ensure economic development.

“Pakistan possesses huge potential and it can achieve better economic development,” said ICCI President Zafar Bakhtawari.

He expresses this while exchanging his views with Col. (Retd) Azam Qadri who visited ICCI to present his book on Major Shabir Sharif Shaheed (Nishan-e-Haider) and introduce the business community about the role of some unsung heroes of Pakistan Army.

The ICCI President said all the stakeholders should sit together to find out a workable solution to security challenges that will enable the private sector to invest in Pakistan and put the country on better economic growth path.

Bakhtawari paid rich tribute to Major Shabir Sharif Shaheed (NH), terming him one of the most courageous military officers and symbol of bravery and valour for the new generation.  He also lauded the role of Pakistan Army that has made great sacrifices to defend the country adding the business community would always extend its full cooperation to our armed forces to make Pakistan’s defense further stronger.

Speaking on the occasion, Col. (Retd) Azam Qadri said that he was writing 5-6 more books to highlight the role of Pakistan Army’s soldiers who rendered invaluable services and even scarified their lives for their motherland.

The book “What more can a solider desire” is a candid account of Major Shabir’s acts of valour and bravery he displayed throughout his military career and during the two Pakistan-India wars of 1965 and 1971. 

Major Shabir embraced martyrdom on December 6, 1971 while firing and engaging the Indian tanks in the Sulemanki Sector.
