He said that the enemy is now targeting the thought process after failing on the battlefield
Chief of Army Staff Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa said Pakistan has paid a heavy price for maintaining its peace. He was speaking at the Cadets passing out parade held at Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) Kakul. He said that Pakistan is moving towards Quaid-e-Azam’s vision.
“Pakistan has made great efforts for regional and global peace, according to Quaid’s vision,” he said. “It was a difficult journey but the satisfaction is that today our institutions are getting stronger and working together to serve Pakistan.”
The Army Chief said that as you are passing out today, remember that you are responsible for all the past and future ups and downs of this great nation and Pakistan Army. “Today is the start of your career. You must realize that peace is not an end in itself,” he said.
“No one in Pakistan is accountable for what anyone else has done. I consider it an honor to stand before the nation as a credible and accountable institution,” he said.
“We have paid a heavy price for peace and we will ensure its protection with blood to maintain peace. Peace is a milestone, not a destination”, Bajwa added.
He also warned that Pakistan is facing a hybrid war after the enemies failed to achieve their malicious intentions in traditional war. He said the enemy was now trying to target the minds with leadership at all levels being maligned.
“The objective of hybrid war is to target the sense of hope in Pakistan and to perpetuate the perception of ‘yahan kuch acha naheen ho sakta (nothing good can ever happen here)’,” Bajwa added. “Let me tell you ‘yahan sab acha hoga (everything good will happen here).”
