Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has issued President Asif Ali Zardari a recommendation to confer Nishan-e-Haider, the highest military award, upon the martyr Lieutenant Yasir Abbas who was killed in line of defending assets of Pakistan Navy in face of terrorists’ attack on PNS Mehran on Sunday night, SAMAA reported on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the mother and the sister of martyr Yasir have also backed PM Gilani’s recommendation.

They said that Yasir laid down his life in defence of the precious assets of Pakistan Navy while fighting with Taliban.

They said that Yasir prevented a greater loss to Pakistan Navy by sacrificing his life. They were of the view that Yasir deserve Nishan-e-Haider as he received bullets on chest to defend sovereignty of our dear homeland.

After approval, Lieutenant Yasir Abbas will be the first officer from Pakistan Navy to have been conferred Nisha-e-Haider Award upon.

    Why Nisha e Haider…..He was performing his duty and got killed among other 20 Martyrs…..Nishan e Haider only given for some extra ordinary bravery/performance.Actually media is firing this issue only because 80% of pakistani media is occupied by Shias and yasir abbas was also a shia. Although We dn’t accept Shias as muslim but i doesn’t mean we don’t appretiate non muslims in such situations.Therefore I’m glad Nishan e haider was not awarded to him.

    If Lt Yasir is getting an NH then there are more than 32000 Shaheeds of Armed forces, who should also be getting it. The merit and criteria of a Nishan-e-Haider is quite high, it should be strictly maintained. Lt yasir failed in his mission to protect the planes. I think he doesnt even deserve a T.Bt.
