Warning to critics of Pakistan Army – don’t drag us into politics

Pakistani Army: Pakistan’s military on Sunday warned its critics to refrain from “pelting mud” on the country’s military. At the same time, the army also raised strong objections to the Imran Khan government being “dragged into politics” since it was ousted last month. Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, 69, was ousted last month through a motion of no confidence. Khan had accused the US of being behind it, terming it a conspiracy by opposition parties to bring a no-confidence motion.

The Pakistani military said in a statement that the attempts by some politicians, journalists and analysts to push the institution and its leadership into political matters are extremely harmful. This practice of baseless, defamatory and provocative statements and comments is extremely dangerous.

‘Condemn such illegal behavior’
“The Pakistani Armed Forces strongly opposes such illegal and immoral practices and expects all to abide by the law and keep the Armed Forces out of political discussions in the best interest of the country,” the statement said.

The military has ruled Pakistan for almost half of its history and played a behind-the-scenes role in overthrowing elected governments. But its spokesperson claimed in a press conference last month that the army had decided to stay away from politics. Especially with the current political conflict between former Prime Minister Khan and his opponents.
