Regarding the law on extension of service of the army chief, Munir said that the Parliament is free to take a decision on making the law. The matter is outside the jurisdiction of the army. He said the Army’s job is to share inputs with the government and follow their orders instead of giving orders. Aseem Munir said these things at the National Security Workshop of National Defense University at General Headquarters, Rawalpindi.
Army’s role will be reduced in Balochistan
The workshop was specifically based on issues related to Balochistan, so most of the participants were from that province. During this, political matters and the role of the army were also discussed. Regarding Balochistan, he said that he would try to reduce the role of the army there. Munir’s statement that ‘the prestige of the army will not be compromised’ is a warning to Imran Khan.

Pakistan’s President Arif Alvi has also warned Imran not to make any negative remarks against General Asim Munir. Since going out of power, Imran Khan has been targeting the Pakistan Army. One of the three people he accused of the murderous attack on him was a senior army officer. He had said that in the past the army, in collusion with people like the Sharif family, weakened independent institutions. They behaved as if they were ‘above the law’.
