Ufone Pays Tribute To War Hero MM Alam

Ufone has today published tribute to the hero of 1965 war and one of the most brilliant son of soil, Air Commodore (retd) Muhammad Mahmood Alam, who is no more with us today.

Muhammad Mahmood Alam, as confirmed by Pakistan Air Force (PAF) spokesman, died yesterday after a long illness. He was 78.

During the 1965 war with India, Squadron Leader M.M. Alam shot down two enemy aircraft and damaged three on Sept 6.

Sept 7 was the day when he rewrote the history of air warfare by shooting down five Indian Hawker Hunter fighters in air-to-air combat, in less than 60 seconds. The first four came down within a span of 30 seconds.

Mr. Alam was awarded Sitara-i-Jur’at twice for such gallantry and government of Pakistan named a road in Gulberg, Lahore, after him.

Ufone MM Alam Tribute


  • He was a true legend in Air Force circles. IAF instructors give example of MM Alam to their students.

    It’s a shame leading Media houses have not written more than few lines for this great war hero.

    Good to see Ufone taking the lead and paying their tribute to MM Alam.

    Hopefully others will follow and our new generation will know who MM Alam was and what can we learn from him about sacrifice, dedication and being the best in what we do.

  • Great work but ZERO work for HIM. This poor man survived his last days of life in PAF Mess. What a shame for our government and society that we couldn’t give him credit during his last days of life….but for marketing purposes, we immediately published ADDS before his dead body is rested in grave… This is one example why world don’t respect us…because we insults our own heroes and cooks disgusting theories against him/her unless he/she leaves country or leaves world. This is reality and we must accept it.

  • He was Pakistan’s biggest hero in the 1965 war. he didnt rise to the rank of air marshall being a bengali. We should respect and help our heroes in their bad times BEFORE they leave us, not afterwards. the same is happening with many renowned tv artists who are living in poor conditions because of low income. govt should cover their home rent at least. at least, ufone remembered him.
