Pakistan army has nothing to do with the politics: DG ISPR

RAWALPINDI, (MANEND NEWS): Director General (DG) Inter-Services
Public Relation (ISPR) Major General Babar Iftikhar on Monday has
categorically stated that Pakistan army has nothing to do with the
politics and no backdoor contacts and backdoor channels are being
used for this purpose. He said that the people who are spreading
rumors about this, I had requested them and will again request them
to not drag the army in the politics, adding that we have hands full
and we have big duty to see the security related internal and external
threats and we are performing it in befitting manner.
In an interview with a private TV channel, Major General Babar Iftikhar
said that without any evidence and research commenting and talking
about it suits anyone. He said that this kind of rumors should stop,
adding that whosoever are commenting about if they have any
evidence and proof and if they could bring anything according to
research then they should present and show who is calling whom and
talking whom, adding that there is no such thing happening so I would
again request that please do not drag the institution into this.
Replying a question about the rumors of backdoor contacts between
the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) and establishment, Major
General Babar Iftikhar said that usually he avoids commenting on such
matters, but however many rumors are being spread for some time
about this, adding that there is no reality in these rumors. Major
General Babar Iftikhar said that we have no need of backdoor
contacts, adding that we are doing our work, adding that it is my
request that if anyone has something about it then he should present
that who talked with whom and contacted whom, adding that nothing
like this is going on.
Major General Babar Iftikhar said that politics should be left for the
politicians, adding that analysts and party leaders are talking with

each other and it is part of political dialogue; however baseless
allegations against Pakistan army and spreading this kind of rumors is
not right.
Major General Babar Iftikhar said that it’s inappropriate to comment
on political matters and linking it to the army without any evidence or
research. All such hearsay must come to an end now,” he stated. “It
doesn’t suit anyone to talk about this without doing any research into
the matter. If anyone has any evidence, it should be brought forth,
else such rumours should stop.”
Talking about the revelations made by EU DisinfoLab, Major General
Babar Iftikhar said that Pakistan has always tried to expose the
nefarious plans of India. DG ISPR said that India has been exposed to
a great extent before the world while noting that the military had
shared details regarding Indian terrorism in a previous press
conference. He said that whatever proofs we have presented before
the world are being taken seriously.
Major General Babar Iftikhar said that spreading false and fake news
has become the tradition of Indian media, adding that unfortunately
without any research and truth if there is any news against Pakistan,
the Indian social media and mainstream media starts running iy, which
is very unfortunate thing. He said that Indian media has lost its
credibility due to whichever it is doing. He said that it is unfortunate
that the Indian mainstream media has also involved in the fake and
false news.
Responding to a question, the DG ISPR said that Pakistani
mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara is a national hero and asset. We
pray for the safety of all the mountaineers who went missing during
their K2 climb, he added.
Major General Babar Iftikhar went on to say that all the measures are
being taken to find Ali Sadpara and his companions. Pakistan army is
busy in fulfilling its duty to ensure the security and protection of the
motherland, he said.
The ISPR chief said that Pakistan Army would not leave any stone
unturned in the search operation for mountaineer Muhammad Ali
Sadpara, who is still missing along with two other Climbers John Snorri
from Iceland, Juan Pablo Mohr from Chile during a K2 expedition.

On the coronavirus pandemic, the DG ISPR noted that the entire world
had been affected by coronavirus and that the Pakistani nation fought
the pandemic successfully with the help of its healthcare workers.

Army, which the army has given to Pakistan’s healthcare workers,” he
said.
