Major General Nazir Ahmed, Commandant Pakistan Military Academy, reviewed the parade, laid wreath, presented the salute and offered fateha.
The first passing out parade of PMA was held on 25th December, 1948. It was reviewed by the then Governor General of Pakistan, Khawaja Nazimuddin, who presented the Quaid-e-Azam Banner to the champion company.
The Pakistan Military Academy, Kakul, has the singular honour of being the only military institution designated as 'Quaid-e-Azam's Own' by the Father of the Nation himself. He was the first and only Colonel-in-Chief of the Academy.
The guard mounting ceremony by PMA cadets is a regular annual feature to pay homage to the Father of the Nation. Later, the representatives of three services laid floral wreath and offered fateha at Quaid's tomb.
