Pakistan Army

  • Pakistan Army is the well-organized, well-disciplined and best organized group in the country. Pakistan Army is a gift from Allah (SWT) to Pakistani nation and in my point of view there are three big authorities who safeguard Pakistani nation from evil eye, danger etc. and those authorities are on number first and foremost is Allah (SWT), second one is our Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the third one is Pakistan Army.

    Every Pakistani Soldier is ready to die for this land, in the battle field, under the darkest depths of the ocean or in the air. Their motto is saving Pakistan in all the aspects. The primary objective of Pak Army and its mission is to ensure national security and national unity of Pakistan by defending it against threat of war and internal threat by maintaining peace and security within its land.

    According to statistical report there are 560000 approx. active persons as of 2017. There is 16-23 years of age for voluntary military service; soldiers cannot be deployed for combat until age 18 according to nation’s constitution. Pakistan’s Army is the sixth largest in the world in terms of active military personnel and the largest among Muslim countries. The armed forces were formed in 1947 when Pakistan became independent from the British Empire.

    Any natural disaster including Earthquake, Flood, lands sliding etc. came Pakistan Army  play a vital role and stud first in rescuing people providing them shelter, medicines, financial support in case of huge lose.

    As we all know Pakistan political parties are not working as like as they have to do for their country, they all are on their way for making huge bank balances, leg pulling of their opponent party leaders. They didn’t think for a while if they unite or think for the betterment of their nation then our country will be successful in all the walks of life but this task is also done by Pak Army and all credits goes to them as I have mentioned above that without Army our entity will be no more.

    The Pakistan armed forces are the best organized institution in Pakistan, and are highly respected in civil society. Since the founding of Pakistan, the military has played a key role in holding the state together, promoting a feeling of nationhood and providing a bastion of selfless service. The army also engaged in extensive economic activities. Most of these enterprises, such as stud and dairy farms, were for the army's own use, but others performed functions beneficial to the local civilian economy. Army factories produced such goods as sugar, fertilizer, and brass castings and sold them to civilian consumers.

    The Pakistan Army, which is a major component of the national power alongside with Pakistan Air Force and Pakistan Navy, has been involved with four wars on its borders with neighboring India and several on its borders with Afghanistan. Other notable military operations on War on Terror in 21st century included: Operation Zarb-e-Azab, Operation Rah-e-Nijat, Operation Black Storm and currently doing Operation of Rad-ul-Fasaad. These operations are for removing terrorism from its grass root level from the state.

    The Pakistan Army has regimental system but is operationally and geographically divided into command zones. The Pakistan Army is commanded by Chief of Army Staff, by the statue a four staff rank General, who is senior member of the Joint Chief of Staff Committee appointed by Prime Minister after Confirmation by the President of Pakistan. Currently Pak Army is under command of General Qamar Javed Bajwa, appointed on 29 November 2016.

    Commissioned Officers ranks of Pakistan Army are as follow:

    • Field Marshal (5 Star)
    • General (4 Star)
    • Lieutenant General (3 Star)
    • Major General (2 Star)
    • Brigadier            (1 Star)

    I’ve done internship from ISPR I have visited many civil organizations, channels etc. but the thing I found in this organization is the unity, respect, love, faith, discipline. Every day they teach us a lecture that be Pakistani, love your country and spread love to all the nations. Not be selfless. The nation we have is the best nation of the world and tell the world that WHO YOU ARE.
