ISPR condemns defamatory remarks by PTI Chief against Pakistan Army

Islamabad, September 05, 2022 (PPI-OT):Pakistan Army is aghast at the defamatory and uncalled statement about the senior leadership of Pakistan Army by Chairman PTI during a political rally at Faisalabad. In a statement, ISPR said regrettably, an attempt has been made to discredit and undermine senior leadership of Pakistan Army at a time when the institution is laying lives for the security and safety of the people of Pakistan every day.

The statement further said senior politicians are trying to stir controversies on appointment of COAS of Pakistan Army, the procedure for which is well defined in the constitution, is most unfortunate and disappointing. The ISPR further stated that senior leadership of Army has decade-long impeccable meritorious service to prove its patriotic and professional credentials beyond any doubt.

The statement reads that politicizing the senior leadership of Pakistan Army and scandalizing the process of selection of COAS is neither in the interest of the state of Pakistan nor of the institution. Pakistan Army reiterates its commitment to uphold the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
