The #COAS Gen M M Naravne during his visit to Nepal presented with an honorarium of Rs 5 lakh
Here's his story:
As a Rifleman, Lance Havildar Dil Bahadur Chhetri, #MahaVirChakra led a daring khukri charge eliminating 8 Pakistani soldiers at Atgram, during the Battle of Sylhet, December 1971.

After #COAS #Bajwa again talking about #5GW and the threat #Pakistan faces, the #PTI government has still been unable to restrict the access or approach of any of these groups.

#Warfare, especially in today’s connected, camera friendly world, is much easier to wage.
Nations can steal elections with the right strategy. They can change narratives with hostile actions. They can create hate and distrust.

We have all of these happening in today’s #Pakistan.

And the govt is sleeping...
From #PTM/#TTP to baseless rumors mongering, #Pakistan has become a battleground that is being lost due to no one bothering to understand the problem and its solutions.

That’s the distrust they showed in us. No one trusts the other when it comes to defining the problem.

TREAD! Pakistan-Iran fencing?

Why fencing #Iran border w/ Pakistan is a big challenge for Islamabad, not due to money but for the following reason—I am delineating below:

There are 4 issues related but distinct....

1. Narco route
2. 🇮🇷’s grey economy
3. Human trafficking
4. Border economy

I ll address narco issue first:
Illicit drug trade originates from #Afghanistan; is worth up 2 $70B yearly in #UK streets; up to $3 bill is invested back in region rest end up in western banks. 2/
Porous border is used 4 narco logistics/route.

Drugs cartel funds terrorism, & warlordism & mafias in border regions of 🇦🇫, 🇵🇰 & 🇮🇷; they have influence in weak state like 🇦🇫 & desperate elements in structures in Iran 🇮🇷 who do not want stringent border between 🇮🇷 & 🇵🇰.

4 Possible Outcomes - #BajwaExtension case

1. The apex court could accept the Govt’s steps to fix the legal weaknesses in the original notification & declare fresh notification as valid, reverting situation to the status quo & Bajwa would start his next 3-year term as the #COAS
2. The Supreme Court of #Pakistan could declare that the fresh notification is not valid & the extension of the #COAS #QamarJavedBajwa would not proceed, indicating that he would retire on November 29, 2019.
3. The Supreme Court of #Pakistan may not make a decision today & ask for more arguments. If the next hearing is scheduled for a date after Friday when Gen #QamarJavedBajwa retires, then the Govt will need to announce a new #COAS.

Lets talk about this clearly:

Imran Khan & Gen QJ Bajwa find themselves in a very different power equation versus the last two civilian administrations & the last two #COAS's

'08-'11, Gen Kayani & the Zardari regime were clearly cat-&-mousing for most of Kayani's 1st tenure.
Compulsions: The Lawyers' Movement, NRO, Musharraf's uniform, Memogate (some of Kayani's productions or co-productions, backed by foreign supporters). Then, post-Osama/Raymond Davis, Kayani was deployed to stabilize rudder by an atrophied Zardari. Not much of a choice for PPP.
That Kayani's personal interests & connections compromised his standing within & without the institution he was once revered by was clear by the middle of his 2nd term.

Soon after he was done, even junior officers weren't refraining for calling him 'agent' & 'mixed up'

This should take most of the steam out of the #PashtunTahafuzMovement and #Achakzai. Supreme Court and #Peshawar High Court extended into #FATA.…
And it makes the statement of the #COAS Qamar #Bajwa even more interesting, as we have seen numerous evidences of fake accusations against the #PakArmy for their counter #terrorism operation in #FATA.…
And before anyone tries to credit the #PashtunTahafuzMovement for this landmark passage...

With Gen. Mattis visiting #Pakistan today, we wanted to share some tips on what not to ask or do.

1) Don’t come to us asking #DoMore until you’ve taken responsibility for #Afghanistan’s soil & the #terrorists based there with @ashrafghani’s approval.…
@ashrafghani 2) Don’t expect us to help you until you target & eliminate #TTP, #JuA & #ISKP. All based very close to your FOBs in #Jalalabad, #Namgarhar & #Khost.
@ashrafghani 3) Don’t expect #Pakistan to sacrifice its #NationalInterest for yours. We’ve learned that lesson in 1989, not need for revision.
