ISPR has given angry reaction at Imran Khan’s anti-military comments

 Pakistan Army on Monday expressed shock at PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s “anti-military statements” issued during his party’s political gathering in Faisalabad on Sunday, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

The military’s media wing, in its statement, shared that the institution is “aghast at the defamatory and uncalled for statements about the senior leadership of Pakistan Army” by Khan.

Despite the fact that “the institution is laying life for the security and safety of the people of Pakistan every day,” the statement added, “regrettably, an attempt has been made to discredit and undermine top leadership of [the] Pakistan Army.”

The ISPR said that it is “very sad and disappointing” that prominent politicians are seeking to create “controversies” over the selection of the next chief of army staff (COAS).

It went on to say that the Constitution provides clear guidelines for how the position of COAS is filled.

The ISPR stated that politicising the senior leadership of the institution and scandalising the process of COAS’ selection is not in the interest of the state of Pakistan or the institution, and that the senior leadership of the army has decades of impeccable meritorious service to prove its patriotic and professional credentials beyond any doubt.

The Pakistani Army “reiterates its commitment to safeguard the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan,” according to the military’s media department.
