This time the lead article, Leader Par Excellence – Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم as a Military Leader explains the significance of a role model in our lives. In order to stay motivated and inspired, we should look for someone who inspires us to be the best we can. One of the key traits of a role model is his ability to inspire. This will help our younger generation to look in the right direction for guidance and inspiration.

To pay tributes to our heroes, B&T includes articles or anecdotes about those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. The article The Martyrs of Mustafabad highlights those heroes who fought audaciously both on the war front and in the rear areas. The account ends on a poignant note.
