ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 13th August, 2016) : Pakistan Army Cadet Ammad Aheer was graduated at the Royal Military academy Sandhurst after having completed his one year training. Second Lieutenant Ammad Aheer, the son of an army officer, would soon join his regiment to serve Pakistan. The day was even more special when Major Uqbah Hadeed Malik, the first ever Pakistani Officer to be training the British Armed Forces feeder institution witnessed his cadets march into their final term in front of dignitaries and the Sovereign's representative, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe General Bradshaw, said a message of Pakistan High Commission in London UK on Saturday.
A feat unprecedented as Major Uqbah Hadeed Malik was the first ever Muslim since British Army's inception in 1741 to have commanded and instructed a regular Commissioning Course. He is also a Sword of Honour holder from the same institution in 2007.
Pakistan High Commissioner to the UK Syed Ibne Abbas and his spouse were invited to witness Officer Cadet Aheer become an officer and Major Uqbah's platoon promoted to final term. The High Commissioner commended both the officers for flying the Pakistani flag high and cementing the institutional relations between the two countries.
