18 August, 2017
ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Thursday said Pakistan Army was committed to a safe, secure and stable Pakistan.
“Pakistan Army is capable to meet all internal and external challenge. It has achieved great successes to rid country of violence and terrorism. However, for enduring peace each one of us has to contribute his respective bit,” the COAS told the youth undergoing annual internship programme at the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Directorate.
Gen Bajwa said Pakistan was blessed with most talented and vibrant youth, and that he was confidant and optimistic the youth, while realizing their potential, will lead Pakistan to a new era of peace and progress. He asked the internees to have confidence in themselves, adhere to merit, follow rule of law, and don’t look for shortcuts in life.
In response to a question that how did he maintain his morale amid a plethora of challenges and pressures, the COAS replied that selfless motivation of his outfit (Pakistan Army) and the hope he sees in future of Pakistan (the youth) keeps him motivated and committed to the cause.
“Every Pakistani is a soldier of Operation Rudd-ul-Fasaad,” the COAS said, as he asked the students to remain mindful and vigilant of hostile narratives being spread through social media. “Educated youth is prime target of ISIS and affiliates... be extra cautious,” COAS advised the youth. “Your success and progress in life depends on three things: Faith in Allah, service to parents and the hard-work. This trinity is key to success,” the COAS remarked in response to a question about key to success in life.
