Epic Bargain

Sorry Mr. Governor General you don't have permission.....!

This interesting history is attached to the picture below, which was taken on 21 February 1948, while Founder can be seen reviewing anti-aircraft guns (only trail of the gun is visible in picture) at Army Air Defense unit at PAF Malir Air Base Karachi. (It was Army Air Defense Unit, which was tasked to defend the PAF Base Malir)
The history of this unique picture, dates back to 1948, when during a curfew, the convoy of the Founder was stopped by an Army sentry. Due to curfew in city the convoy was being moved from the link road passing from the Cantonment. This road was not regularly used by Quaid. The sentry knew that Quaid is sitting in the car but out of his sheer love for Quaid, he stopped the convoy by not opening the barrier.
The sentry saluted Quaid and asked, if the founder had the permission to move about in the curfew? Founder was surprised on the question but with a fatherly smile he said, "No Son, I don't have Permission".  After receiving the answer in negative from the Founder, the sentry gladly offered him a deal for allowing him to pass through this road.
The Founder accepted that deal; which was to visit the unit, from which the sentry belonged to. The unit was 5 Heavy Anti Aircraft Regiment. (now known as 5 Light SAM - Surface To Air Missile Regiment).
Meanwhile the news spread like fire in Cantonment and military high-ups' rushed to 5 Heavy AD Regiment to extricate Founder from this situation. After arrival of perturbed Brigade Commander, he requested Founder to continue his journey but Founder smiled while looking towards the sentry and said, "No, we already had a deal"
Quaid visited 5 Heavy (AA) (Anti Aircraft) Regiment on 21 February 1948, where this picture was taken. Brigade Commander (Brig Akbar) is standing (right most) with Fatima Jinnah while the Commanding Officer of the Regiment is briefing Founder about Anti Air Craft Gun.
This was the first ever military unit to be visited by Founder. Owing to this unique honor of the unit, 5 light SAM is the only unit in Pakistan Army that is reviewed in Salaam Fung (Present Arms) position and not Bazu Fung as in case of rest of the Army, Navy and Airforce establishments.
