Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) took exception to the "imprudent comments" made by the country's senior politicians about Peshawar Corps Commander Lt Gen Faiz Hameed, terming them "very inappropriate".
The Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) noted that Peshawar Corps is an “illustrious formation” of the Pakistan Army that has been “spearheading the national war against terrorism for over two decades”.
“One of the most competent and professional officers is entrusted with the responsibility to lead this prestigious formation. Imprudent comments made by important senior politicians recently about Corps Commander Peshawar are very inappropriate,” said the ISPR.
The military’s media wing noted that such statements “undermine the honour and morale of the institution and its leadership”.
“It is expected that the senior political leadership of the country refrains from passing objectionable remarks against the institution whose brave officers and men are constantly putting their lives on the line to guard the integrity and sovereignty of Pakistan,” concluded the ISPR.
