“A soldier is never a traitor”, retired officers respond to PTI leader
Retired soldiers 'furious' at the targeting of troops by PTI leadership
Retired Officers of the Pakistan Army have come out in support of the Pakistan Army and the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) Qamar Javed Bajwa on anti-institution statements by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.
The retired officers of the Pakistan Army have come out to voice their anger and disappointment at the undignified statements made by the former Prime Minister and Chairman of the PTI, Imran Khan, invoking frustration in the public against the Pakistan Armed forces. The retired officers have strongly criticized the leadership for their statements.
They have argued that political differences are respectable but now the matter concerns our home. Standing in solidarity with the military they have expressed that retired officers and young men of the nation stand with the Pakistan Army and its COAS, General Bajwa. We are proud of our Army and will not accept any blame placed on the soldiers or the officers of the Pakistan Army.
The retired officers have questioned, “Is this the army of Mir Jafar and Mir Sadiq?” Attempts are being made to divide the people and the Army, those who are referring to the Army as traitors are themselves the defectors.
Brigadier Zahoor has said that while political differences are respectable, now the matter concerns our home, and openly calling our soldiers traitors will not be allowed. Zia Rasheed questioned what message does Imran Khan want to give to the families of the martyrs, who were beheaded? Does he want to tell them that this is the Army of Mir Jafar and Mir Sadiq? This is not so. We will not allow any civil war, all retired personnel stand with the soldiers, officers, and chief of the Pakistan Army.
Manzoor Elahi said that those who are calling the Army traitors are themselves the defectors, they are the enemies of this country. Brigadier R. Ahmed Saeed Minhas said that a soldier cannot be a traitor, we all stand with General Qamar Javed Bajwa. Col. (retd.) Muhammad Shahid said that we are ready to make all kinds of sacrifices for the Pakistan Army even today. We stand with our Army. Love live Pakistan Army!
Additionally, Col. (rets.) Mohiyuddin said that the “Pakistan Army is the heir of the Ghazis and the Shaheeds, and General Qamar Javed Bajwa is their commander, who is a source of pride for us, we stand with him”.
Another retired officer said that an Army officer can do anything, be anything but never be a traitor. One other officer said, “Let the politicians do their politics and let the Pakistan Army do its work, do not conspire. We will not tolerate any situation.”
