Professional Achievements

Major Shabbir Sharif Shaheed (Nishan-i-Haider) was born on 28 April, 1943 in Kunjah, District Gujrat. He was commissioned into the Frontier Force Regiment on 19 April, 1964. Major Shabbir Shariff as commander of a company of 6 FF Regiment was ordered in December 1971 to capture high ground near Sulemanki.
In a well-nigh superhuman action, for the next three days and nights after crossing a minefield and massive obstacles and killing forty-three soldiers and destroying four tanks, Major Sharif and his men held two enemy battalions at bay.
But after he took over an anti-tank gun from his gunner in an attack was killed by a direct hit in the afternoon of 6 December. He was 28 years old.
