November 02, 2018


Director General ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor has said that the judgment of the Supreme Court in Asia Bibi case is a legal matter and dragging Pakistan Army into it is regrettable.

Talking to the PTV this morning, he said that the government is currently engaged with the protestors and we want amicable and peaceful resolution of the current situation.

The Director General ISPR however made it clear that Pakistan Army will play its constitutional role if requested by the government.

He said the matter should not be pushed to the level where the army is given the responsibility to tackle the situation.

Major General Asif Ghafoor said that those protesting should let the legal process complete in Asia Bibi case.

He said that Pakistan Army is currently engaged in the war on terror  and it is close to winning it. We should not be distracted.  He warned that our enemies want to create anarchy and chaos in the country.

Asif Ghafoor said statements should not be given against Pakistan Army besides rule of law be respected.

Asif Ghafoor said that Islam preaches peace, patience and tolerance and we should follow these golden principles as well as abide by the law.  

He said no compromise can be made on the sanctity of holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
