Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has barred all PML-N leaders from making any controversial statements about former army General (retd) Raheel Sharif, Radio Pakistan reported via twitter.

In a series of tweets earlier on Sunday, Radio Pakistan stated that the premier has taken notice of the statements being made against general (retd) Raheel Sharif.

The prime minister also noted that the whole country paid accolades to the former chief of army staff for his illustrious career.

Late last month, PML-N leader and Federal Minister for States and Frontier Regions (Safron) Lt Gen (retd) Abdul Qadir Baloch said that if former army chief Gen Raheel Sharif were to accept the appointment as head of a 39-nation military alliance of Muslim states he would become controversial.

“If Raheel Sharif takes up the appointment, he will become controversial and I feel it might lessen the respect he has earned,” said Baloch while speaking on reporters programme Doosra Rukh.

More recently, Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair was under the spotlight for statements about Raheel Sharif that caused some controversy.

"His [Sharif's] job as chief of the Saudi-led alliance is also being seen as something extraordinary – when it should be his prerogative as a normal person," Zubair said.

"He is a normal general like other generals and it’s his right to acquire the piece of land he was given ... Let’s be fair with him — let’s not make him larger than life. That will only create more problems for him," he cautioned.
