It was a happy and a proud sight to watch the 146 Pakistanis and 36 foreign nationals disembarked from a ship, Aslat, which brought them safely from Yemen to Karachi. It was an accomplishment on the part of the government and the navy and a proud moment when the grateful foreigners were seen waving the green star and crescent national flag. Pakistan swiftly came into action, soon after the war escalated in Yemen and started the evacuation process of the stranded there. It is hoped that in a similar manner, the state will continue to rise into action to save its people, whenever any other situation arises.
