Days after the grave of Brigadier Mohammad Usman, the highest-ranking Army officer to have been killed in the 1947 Indo-Pakistan War, at a graveyard near Jamia Millia Islamia was found damaged, the Army repaired the structure on Thursday.
According to the Readers Time resources, earlier this week, a significant part of the epithet on the grave’s white marble covering was broken. As of Thursday, the epithet — “Brig M Usman, MVC; Naushera Ka Shera” — was repaired. The red stone floor on which it rests was also given a fresh coat of paint too.
Jamia Pro Ahmad Azeem stated that the work was done by the army with technical assistance from Jamia.
An officer from the additional directorate general, public information, said, “He is a national hero. We undertook prompt measures to restore the honour.”
