DG ISPR breaks silence over General (R) Pervaiz Musharraf

LONDON – DG ISPR Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor has given a rare statement over the issue of former President Pervaiz Musharraf.

He has said that Musharraf’s decision to enter politics was wrong.

In a media briefing at Pakistan High Commission in London on Saturday, he said that Pakistan is only country that won the war against terrorism.

“We will end check-posts in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa if peace is restored in Afghanistan,” he said.

The DG ISPR said that the proofs of army’s intervention, if any, in the elections should be presented. “Reforms are the job of the government, not the army. Only passage to success is democracy,” he maintained.

He said that no soldier desists from sacrificing his life for Pakistan.

Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said that usually disappointment is spread on the social media and the people should avoid it for seeking peace. “Progress is not possible until institutions support each other,” he said.
