Do not pay attention to any fake news and propaganda, Army Chief

Don’t pay attention to fake news and propaganda as the country’s security is in strong hands, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa said Saturday. He was addressing the passing out ceremony of the 146th PMA Long Course at the military academy in Kakul.

The COAS said the army has made great sacrifices to rid Pakistan of terrorism. In his speech to the cadets, he congratulated them and said that they should be proud that they are going to be a part of a great army. He advised they always remember the value of keeping a brave face in front of the men they lead. Even if they are shattered and frightened.

“The contagious energy you will instil in your men when you lead them by example and not merely by words,” he said.

Armed forces won’t allow destabilisation of Pakistan: COAS

The COAS emphasised unequivocally that the armed forces, with the support of the public, will never allow any country, group, or force to destabilise Pakistan politically or economically. Pakistan is a peace-loving country, he said. The country has made honest and all-out efforts to develop good relations with all of its neighbours and regional neighbours.

“We are trying our best to break the political logjam which has denied the countries of South Asia to move forward and resolve all regional and bilateral issues in a peaceful and dignified manner,” he said.

He stressed that the people of South Asia also deserve prosperity and better living conditions.

“This can only happen with sustained economic growth, development and above all lasting peace. Therefore we must try hard to keep flames of war away from the region,” he said.

He said we must give peace a chance by developing a mechanism to resolve all bilateral issues peacefully. He said we should collectively fight hunger, poverty, illiteracy, population explosion, climate change and disease. General Qamar Javed Bajwa however said Pakistan’s desire for peace should not be construed as its weakness. 

The Pakistan Army with the full support of the nation turned the tide against terrorism in the last two decades. It ensured that organised terrorism is decisively rooted out from Pakistan. 

“This is indeed a unique accomplishment that not many countries or armies can claim,” he said.
