Major General Ahmed Sharif said that these narratives include false narratives such as framing the war against terrorism with an external agenda, DHA, military foundation, defense budget, human rights violations, but despite these heinous narratives, the people and The enemy could not break the relationship of trust and respect between the army, for which reasons.

Pakistan Army will not spare any sacrifice with its full professionalism.
DG ISPR said that the Pakistan Army represents all units, schools of thought and classes, and does not reflect any particular elite, due to these factors, the people cannot be separated from the forces in any way. And the testimony of this is given by the graves of martyrs of Pakistan Army which are present all over the country including Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir.

He said that despite these indisputable facts on the ground, a false and misleading propaganda has been and is being run in the last one year for the pursuit of nefarious political objectives and lust for power, which unfortunately culminated on May 9. The innocent people of Pakistan, especially the youth, were incited to revolt by raising false slogans of revolution.

Major General Ahmad Sharif said that there is complete coordination and clarity in the decision-making of the Pakistan Army, in this regard, the press release of the Special Corps Commanders’ Conference issued on May 15 after the events of May 9, Pakistan Martyrs Day on May 25. , and the press release of the Formation Commanders’ Conference on 7 June is a clear proof that the military leadership and the Pakistan Army are well aware of the behind-the-scenes elements, facilitators and agendas associated with the May 9 events.

He said that the issues on which the Army is completely agreed and clear in this regard are that the tragedy on May 9 will not be forgotten in the history of Pakistan and neither the involved evil elements, planners and facilitators can be forgiven. All the planners and facilitators involved in this tragedy will be punished according to the Constitution of Pakistan and the law, irrespective of their affiliation to any organization, political party or social status.

The DG ISPR said that those obstructing the process to its logical conclusion will be dealt with sternly with the full support of the people of Pakistan, which you saw reflected in the public reaction after May 9. Answering the questions, DG ISPR said that currently 17 standing courts are functioning across the country.

DG ISPR was asked that there is confusion regarding the establishment of military courts after the May 9 incidents and the trial and punishment of those involved, he said that the case is under hearing in the military court and the Supreme Court, but the facts It is important to understand.

He said that currently 17 standing courts are functioning across the country, these military courts did not come into existence after May 9 but were already active and existing under the Act.

He said that the cases of 102 miscreants in these courts have been transferred to the military courts according to the law after seeing the evidence from the civil courts. All these accused have full legal rights, including the right to access to civilian lawyers. Apart from this, they have the right of appeal in the High Courts and the Supreme Court. DG ISPR said that the Army Act has been a part of Pakistan’s constitution and law for decades and hundreds of cases have been decided under it, the International Court of Justice has upheld its practice after thorough examination.

He said that in the presence of all these facts, if anyone creates a false narrative, he can create it, but the facts cannot be denied.

Regarding the punishments, he said that punishment and reward are part of the constitution of Pakistan, the punishment is according to the crime, the army has repeatedly reiterated that for us the constitution of Pakistan is the first and the manifestation of the wishes of the people. To a question, he said That talking about the May 9 tragedy being done by the army or agencies is sad and shameful, it is a reflection of the poisonous and conspiratorial mind of the speaker.

He said that it is clear from the CCTV footages, audio recordings, photographs and the statements of the people involved that military installations were targeted on May 9 as part of a plan, long before May 9. There has been a mind-set against the army, a mind-set against the military leadership, was this mind-set done by the military leadership against itself.
While questioning the journalists, he said that within a few hours of the arrest, more than 200 locations across the country were attacked only on military installations, whether Rawalpindi, Lahore, Karachi, Chakdara, Tamergarh, Multan, Lahore, Faisalabad, Peshawar. , Mardan, Quetta, Sargodha, Mianwali and many other places, the army had already spread its agents.

He said that when the burning and encirclement was taking place, who was sitting in the country and outside the country and propagating through anonymous and anonymous accounts that more burning, encirclement and occupation was being done by the army, there are numerous proofs. , which proves that a certain political group and its leadership have no weapon other than lies and propaganda, which is unfortunate. Regarding human rights violations in collusion with the PDM government. When asked about the allegations of American senators and others, he said that this narrative has been created against the state of Pakistan before and its key voice is from outside but unfortunately elements sitting in the country reinforce it.

He said that till date it has been seen that these elements are the terrorist organizations, when action is taken against them during terrorism, they hide behind human rights, oppression and values, at that time they are run in different ways. Going forward, fake videos are played on social media, old photos and videos are uploaded, things are added and false statements are made to spread the impression that the state of Pakistan is oppressive, while in a few days, fake audios are released. It also becomes clear.

He said that the second way is to make statements through agencies or NGOs on the basis of hidden connections or using money to specific people who are sitting outside and create an environment that human rights in Pakistan. There is a lot of violation.

Major General Ahmad Sharif said that the third face is even more disgusting and dangerous, that is, by combining the two things, going to institutions in foreign capitals and making a case to stop economic and commercial support to Pakistan. .

He said that they are doing it so that chaos will spread in Pakistan, economic conditions will worsen and anxiety will spread and there will be an outlet for their politics and there will be an outlet for nefarious political purposes and lust for power, but the government Pakistan is well aware of this.

DG ISPR said that instead of fighting the case in Pakistan, those who are protesting outside should look at the recent history of these countries and how they have dealt with such rioters and miscreants with iron hands. The sanctity of the martyrs was violated, the military installations were attacked in a planned manner, the facilitators of May 9 cannot hide by raising the alarm of violation of human rights.

He said that I think the time has come in Pakistan to end the currency of lies and have the ability to digest the truth no matter how bitter it is.To a question about the identity of the main accused and the impression that people of a certain group were being rescued, the DG ISPR said that the incident of May 9 was not sudden, its purpose was to send people to attack military installations. should be done and immediate response by inciting the army because for many months before this people were being indoctrinated and incited and inciting hatred against the army and the military leadership. It was to further his nefarious political goals.

DG ISPR said that in order to do this, they have also put forward women as shields under the plan at several places and that no one could have expected that a political party in its own country would But when this incident happened, the army foiled this heinous plot because if the kind of reaction they wanted was given, then their plot would have been successful but it was foiled.

DG ISPR said that it was necessary that the sanctity and security of garrisons, military installations, Jinnah House and GHQ etc. were reduced or could not be maintained. There is a process of self-accountability within the Army to investigate negligence and harms, for which two institutional inquiries headed by major-general officers, who looked into the issue in detail and transparently, were in place. Completed and give your recommendations.

The DG ISPR on punishments said that the greater the position, the greater the responsibility and leaning towards a political party is just propaganda because the first and last priority of every soldier of the army is the state of Pakistan and the forces of Pakistan. There should be no ambiguity.

DG ISPR said that after the May 9 incident, we should be satisfied to see that people have recognized this false narrative and are checking what is true and what is false.

On a question regarding the names of the accused, DG ISPR said that if the positions and responsibilities and names were to be told, he would have told them earlier.

It is important to bring the planners and facilitators to the role of culprit.
Major General Ahmad Sharif said that the masterminds of these events are as clear as day in front of everyone, those who have committed these events should be punished and will be punished, but it is more important that the nation remembers May 9. In order to move on from the incident, it is important to expose and bring to justice those who are the planners and facilitators.

DG ISPR said that May 9 tragedy will await justice until its planners and facilitators are brought to justice, otherwise some other political group will follow their nefarious agenda tomorrow. will repeat this incident and if it does not happen, there will be a question mark on the protection of life and property of every individual.

DG ISPR said that we should also know that there is no other solution except to identify these planners and bring them to justice.
On the question regarding propaganda in social media, he said that the solution to this problem is necessary, the government of Pakistan is seriously considering it, ethics, punishment and punishment are also needed and journalists have an important role in this and they They should do responsible journalism instead of doing sensational journalism, hate and excitement should be reduced in the society.

DG ISPR said that the biggest threat to Pakistan is internal chaos, if we do not stop this chaos, it will pave the way for external invasion.

DG ISPR said that Pakistan Army wants all the political stakeholders to sit together and create a national consensus so that people have confidence, economic stability in the country and democratic values are strengthened. Genuine political parties are respectable and respected.
