We are united for defence of Pakistan, says COAS Qamar Bajwa
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa said that they are united to defend the motherland.
Addressing the Defence Day main ceremony at GHQ on Thursday, he said that they had learnt a lot from the wars of 1965 and 1971. “We strengthened our defence for the traditional wars. We made our defence invincible,” the COAS said.
The COAS said that later the era of unconventional war started. “Terrorism emerged during the last two decades, which turned into a war,” he said.
Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa said that the nation has been celebrating the Martyrs Day along with the Defence Day since 2014.
He assured that the blood of the martyrs will not go waste. “We will make the country a centre of peace,” he resolved.
The COAS said that Pakistan had rendered innumerable sacrifices during the last two decades. “But the work has not finished. The war is still underway.”
He expressed the resolve to take the country to the position where no one could dare to cast an evil eye on her. “We have to work for the progress of the country. Our war against poverty should also continue. We can win the war only when democracy continues. Democracy cannot grow without supremacy of the law and constitution,” the COAS said.
Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa also paid tributes to the people of the Occupied Kashmir who are scripting an immortal history of valour.
