Keep army out of politics in country’s best interest, warns ISPR

The Armed Forces have taken strong exception to unlawful and unethical practice of dragging the military into country's internal politics and expect all to abide by the law and keep them out of political discourse in the best interest of the country.

The ISPR, in a press release issued on Sunday, said recently there have been intensified and deliberate attempts to drag Pakistan Armed Forces and their leadership in ongoing political discourse in the country.

It said these attempts are manifested through direct, insinuated or nuanced references to the Armed Forces as well as their senior leadership, made by some political leaders, few journalists and analysts on public forums and various communication platforms including social media.

The ISPR said the practice of unsubstantiated, defamatory and provocative statements and remarks is extremely damaging.
