Professional Achievements


Major Mohammad Akram Shaheed (Nishan-i-Haider) was born on 4 April, 1938 in Dinga, District Gujrat. He was commissioned in the Frontier Force Regiment on 13 October 1963. Major Mohammad Akram and a company of 4 FF Regiment which he commanded in the forward area in Hilly district, in East Pakistan in 1971, came under incessant air, artillery and armour attacks.

But for an entire fortnight, despite enemy superiority in both numbers and fire power, he and his men repulsed every attack, inflicting heavy casualties on the enemy.

Major Akram died during this epic battle in 1971 at the age of 33.
