Chairman of National Business Group Pakistan, President Pakistan Businessmen and Intellectuals Forum, and All Karachi Industrial Alliance, and former provincial minister Mian Zahid Hussain on Monday said Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has always played a historic role in rescuing the country from the crisis on critical occasions.
His role in the Waziristan operation, restoration of law and order in Balochistan and Karachi and in the affairs of Afghanistan has been exemplary, which has won the hearts and minds of the nation, he said.
Mian Zahid Hussain said that the entire nation is with the armed forces which no one can mislead through negative propaganda.
Talking to the business community, the veteran business leader said that those who disrespect important institutions are not kind to the nation and they will fail in their conspiracies.
He said that the elements conspiring for friction between Army and the masses would fail in their nefarious designs.
Mian Zahid Hussain said that the Army, ISI, Rangers, police and all national security agencies are our protectors and because of these institutions 220 million people sleep with peace of mind.
The personnel of institutions are sacrificing their lives to defend the country and save the masses for which the nation feels indebted to them.
He said that spreading anarchy in the country through social media is not in anyone’s interest and if the process is not stopped then legal action against these irresponsible elements will be necessary.
Mian Zahid Hussain further said that a neighbouring country was trying its best to destabilize Pakistan and conspiracies and propaganda against the army at such a critical juncture were reprehensible.
In the recent political and constitutional crisis, the military leadership remained apolitical and saved the country from chaos, for which the business community congratulated General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
Some elements were pushing the country towards martial law, but the military leadership has clearly stated that martial law will never be imposed which has disappointed the conspiratorial elements.
Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has proved his mettle by deciding according to national interests in difficult times, he said, adding that some defeated elements have started a campaign to discredit the army and trigger a civil war but the people are convinced that the army can control the situation.
The wisdom of the military leadership is laudable as it is successfully taking the nation out of the current crisis and soon the people will breathe a sigh of relief.
