Honoured to see Indians happy over my exit, says DG ISPR before bowing out
Statesman Report
RAWALPINDI: The outgoing head of the Inter-Services Public Relations, Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, on Thursday said that he considers it “an honour if Indians are happy” on his exit from the role.
Maj Gen Ghafoor will be replaced by his successor Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar and will take charge as the General Officer Commanding Okara.
Addressing his last press conference as the ISPR chief in Islamabad — an off-camera event — he thanked reporters for their services over the years and hailed the role played by the media overall in Pakistan’s war against terrorism.
With regard to the recent comments made by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi where he claimed that Indian forces were now capable of making Pakistan “bite the dust” in less than 10 days, Maj Gen Ghafoor said that the Pakistan Army “will always surprise the Indian armed forces”.
“We have said this before, and I am saying it again: You may start a war, but we will be the ones to end it.”
He said that the Indian government and leadership are once more making “irresponsible statements”.
