We constantly request to keep fortified forces down from political converse DG ISPR
Shortly after the statement was issued, Director-General ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar said that the fortified forces of the country have made” repeated requests” to keep them down from political converse.
Speaking to a private news channel, the DG ISPR said that for the last many days, the political leadership of the country has been issuing some” veritably unhappy statements” about the fortified forces.
“We’ve constantly made requests not to drag the army into political matters,” he said, adding that the fortified forces have” nothing to do with politics as per the law and Constitution of the country.”
He further said that the Constitution has clarified the procedure of appointing the army chief.
“We, as an institution, have been showing forbearance for a long time,” Maj Gen Babar said, adding that as a country, Pakistan faces multitudinous challenges.
“The army is playing an important part in the internal security of the country on all fronts, thus, the focus of the military leadership is on those liabilities.”
We, thus, formerly again request the media and the politicians not to drag the army into political matters.
He said that talking about the post of the army chief without any reason is tantamount to making it controversial.
“It’s neither in the interest of the country nor in the interest of the institution to talk about the position of the army chief without any reason,” he said.
