ISLAMABAD - Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor has responded over the issue of the Aasia bibi and subsequent events.
He on Friday said that it is unfortunate that the military is dragged into every issue.
DG ISPR commented on the case of Bibi, a Christian woman who had been sentenced to death on blasphemy charges, and said, “Bibi’s case was being heard in courts for the past 10 years.”
“It is a legal matter and it will be better if the law is allowed to run its course on the matter,” Major General Ghafoor added.
The DG ISPR further said, "Religious parties staged protests against the Supreme Court’s verdict.” He added, “Dragging the army into every matter is unfortunate.”
“All Muslims love the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) and there can be no compromise on that,” he asserted. “Islam teaches us peace, forgiveness and love,” the DG ISPR added.
Further, Major General Ghafoor said, “The Pakistan Army is working on eliminating terrorism from the country.”
