Inter Services Public Relations Pakistan (ISPR) on Thursday strongly reacted to the statements of the political leaders against Peshawar Corps Commander Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed.
Recently, PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz and PPP co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari lampooned the former ISI chief Faiz Hameed to which ISPR has responded today.
In the statement, the military media wing said the recent statements regarding Peshawar Corps Commander by the politicians are inappropriate.
The media wing said that such statements impact negatively on the integrity of the Pakistan Army. It added that the Peshawar Corps is a distinguished formation of the armed forces.
Earlier today, responding to a question regarding Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed; of whom she has been quite critical and believes he was the one who brought Imran Khan to power through rigging in the 2018 elections, she replied that the chief of army staff (COAS) should be a person who is non-controversial, competent, and free of any allegations.
She had also lampooned the serving corps commander in a PML-N public rally in Fateh Jang.
Further, in response to a question yesterday, former president Asif Ali Zardari said that Faiz Hameed has been ‘sidelined’.
