Army to preserve its dignity, says COAS Sharif

Islamabad: “Pakistan Army upholds the sanctity of all institutions and will resolutely preserve its own dignity and institutional pride,” said Chief of Army Staff Gen Raheel Sharif, Aaj News reported on Tuesday.

While speaking to Special Service Group (SSG) commandos at Ghazi Base near Tarbela officers and soldiers, COAS said that Pakistan Army never has and never will shy away from rendering any sacrifice in ensuring a formidable defense and security of the motherland.

It is pertinent to know that Gen Raheel’s statement came a week after Musharraf was indicted by the Special Court on five counts of high treason, a charge that potentially carries death penalty.
