Captain Haneef Uddin was only 25 when he died from multiple bullet wounds in the border town of Turtuk during the Kargil war of 1999.

Raised by a single mother, very few know his story and those who do, only have words of appreciation for the young martyr who sacrificed his life for the nation.

Recently, Rachna Bisht, a serving army officer’s wife met his mother, Hema Aziz, and spoke about the late Captain.

Sharing their heartwarming interaction through a Facebook post, Bisht stated that she understood where his courage came from.

“When [the] then Army Chief Gen VP Malik told his mother that the body could not be retrieved because the enemy was firing constantly, Mrs Hema Aziz told him that she did not want another soldier to risk his life to get her son’s body,” said Bisht in her post.

A classical singer, Mrs Hema Aziz brought up her sons as a single mother after Haneef’s father passed away when he was 8. She refused the petrol pump that was offered to her after Haneef’s martyrdom just as she had told Haneef to refuse a free uniform he was going to get in school because he did not have a father.

‘Tell your teacher my mother earns enough and can afford my uniform,’ she had told him. She said Haneef was a soldier and was doing his duty towards his nation. She would not have expected him to turn back to save his life.

Capt Haneef Uddin died from multiple bullet wounds in Turtuk when he was 25. His body could not be retrieved for more than 40 days. When then Army Chief Gen VP Malik told his mother that the body could not be retrieved because the enemy was firing constantly, Mrs Hema Aziz told him that she did not want another soldier to risk his life to get her son’s body.
