Pakistan Has A New Army Chief And This Is What People Think About Him

By Sarmad Amer | 26 Nov, 2016

After weeks of speculation the new army chief has finally been revealed to all. While the widely beloved General Raheel Sharif bid his farewell, many were waiting anxiously for the new army chief’s announcement so drawing rooms around the country could analyze the next move that the country will take.

Well, finally, Lt. General Qamar Javed Bajwa has been announced as the next army chief. Lt. General Qamar had been serving at the GHQ as Inspector General of Training and Evaluation and has now been elevated to a four-star general rank with his appointment.


Pakistanis, obviously, can’t help being analytical about this appointment and here’s what the country’s thinking:


There are folks welcoming him to his new job


But General Sharif has many fans and people still don’t want him to leave



This one’s shocked because, according to some, Lt. General Bajwa was a “dark horse” in the race to the position


Some people can’t help but speculate about the reinforcement of “Punjabi” supremacy


While others are comparing to famous Bajwas in India

And suggestions over the biggest challenge for the new chief are being drawn up


This keen observer has spotted a trend in the appointments


Whatever else armchair analysts may be speculating, the country is hopeful for the future and congratulates the new army chief on his appointment
