The Pakistan Navy Day is celebrated on 8th of September when Pakistan Navy launched its highly efficacious and successful Operation Somnath against Indian Navy. Pakistan Navy's 25th squadron carried out one of the most effective operations in naval history of the world against sizably voluminous enemy. Pakistani Navy not only successfully assailed the Indian radar station but additionally confined the Indian Navy ships to its waters with submarine Ghazi. This is the day to recollect gallant, heroic, and intrepid act of Pakistan Navy and recollecting martyrs of Pakistan Navy who sacrificed their lives to bulwark our future. If we are living a tranquil life and Pakistan is safe, it is because of those martyrs who sacrificed greatly. We can never pay them back for what they have done for us. We are familiar with superheroes in movies but they were the authentic superheroes. It is an obligation of every Pakistani to acknowledge their great sacrifice. They proved to the world that despite circumscribed resources, Pakistan Navy not only can obliterate and decimate the enemy but withal Pakistan Navy is well trained and has a profuse of zealousness and zest to defend every inch of Pakistan. They showed the world that the spirit of Pakistan Navy is much more colossal than Indian ships. The Operation taken place in the ocean and the Indian coastline on September 8th, 1965 reflected that Pakistan Navy's resolve, fervor, and vehemence to forfend this great nation is more vigorous than sea waves. There is a famous proverb “action speaks louder than words”. Pakistan Navy proved this with its actions as well as setting an example of epitome of strength and operational preparedness and a nightmare for enemies of Pakistan. Enemies of Pakistan can buy ships and spend maximum on weapons but they know they cannot compete with Pakistan Navy in terms of professional expertise because Pakistan’s Navy has extirpated, devastated, and ravaged them in the past despite having finite resources.
Pakistan is on its way to becoming a great nation. CPEC is a game changer in the region. The paramountcy of sea has incremented manifold for Pakistan. Pakistan is fixating on the Blue Economy and investing its resources in the sea. Geopolitics of the region is transmuting as well. The US is pursuing the policy of offshore balancing and fortifying India against China. Both countries are collaborating on many fronts like in 2015 they relinquished “Joint Strategic Vision for the Asia Pacific and Indian Ocean Region.” They also signed many agreements like Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA), the renewed Bulwark Framework Agreement, and the Communications, Compatibility, and Security Acquiescent (COMCASA). Besides this India additionally has close cooperation with Japan and Australia, albeit, Pakistan is not the rudimentary objective of this cooperation, however, it will have an impact on Pakistan.
It can shift the strategic balance in the region and engender many challenges for Pakistan. In India, there is a fascist bellwether representing the ideology of Hitler. He is political face of the Hindu terrorist organization, RSS. They never accepted Pakistan and always want an opportunity to destabilize Pakistan. He is not only a threat to Pakistan but also a threat to the security of this region and the whole world. Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Myanmar, and China all are victims of Indian expansionist and fascist ideology. India perpetually wants an opportunity to destabilize CPEC through the conventional and non- conventional betokens. The Indian Ocean will be the area where the Challenges of Pakistan will increment, but Pakistan Navy is plenarily prepared to face all conventional and non- conventional challenges. In recent past, on 4th March 2019, Pakistani Navy detected Indian submarine within the Pakistani maritime zone. Pakistan Navy could eradicate it but unlike India, Pakistan believes in peace. It was the latest submarine of the Indian Navy. This shows even though India is buying incipient naval equipment but it still cannot compete with Pakistan Navy. Either it was in the past or present, the Indian Navy always bites the dust in the sea. Pakistan’s Navy is fully capable of forfending maritime boundaries of Pakistan despite having constrained resources.
Pakistan's political leadership and military are fully cognizant of the challenges Pakistan is facing. As a nation, we should remain confident that Pakistan Navy is a guarantor of Pakistan’s placidity, prosperity, and security. The 8th of September is a day that is withal an edification for India. India knows that history can repeat itself. As a nation, we must acknowledge the sacrifices of Pakistan’s Navy. To become an indomitable maritime power, according to Mahan, the character of the nation is equipollently paramount. People should learn and know about the sea. We should increment our cognizance and understanding of the sea. It will avail Pakistan Navy in building a more invincible and vigorous navy.
