Khawaja Muhammad Asif (Defense Minister)This is very welcoming for the country that such competent individuals will lead the most sensitive institutions of the country. There were very confusing situations and now with the grace of Almighty Allah the decision has been taken upon it. It will definitely be beneficial for the country and the environment will be much pleasant. The call of long march and sit-in by the PTI chief Imran Khan has to change its course of action, due to prevailing situation in the country. President Arif Alvi took a wise decision, by taking current situation into the consideration and endorsed this decision.
Lt Gen (Retd) Raza Muhammad Khan (Defense Analyst)The selection of the two of most senior army officials is very welcoming, not only for the armed forces, but also for the entire nation. Both of the individuals are highly competent, experienced and most senior officers of Pakistan. Their deployment is completely according to the constitution and with it; the controversies from the past will be halted. It will definitely bring internal and external stability, and peace and stability situation will be promoted. The system of promotion in the armed forces is very well tested and competent, because it is completely computerized. After that there are many courses to be done and their field work is also taken into consideration. I must say that this system is the best in the world and we are honored to have such a system. After that if an individual comes to such a position, so it is through a proper channel as well as it's all because of his hard work and self determination in achieving such a bench mark. And when such a competent person is handed over with such a responsibility, he works for the pride and betterment of the country.
