The Aasia Bibi case has nothing to do with the armed forces, ISPR Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor told Media Channels Friday morning.
The case has been in court for the past 10 years and all the decisions made in it have been made by the court. The army has nothing to do with this case and to speak against the army in relation to this case isn’t right, he added.
The army wants the issue to be resolved peacefully, said Major General Ghafoor, adding that people should respect the legal process. He said petitions have been filed and asked the people to let the legal process continue.
Let the court complete the hearing and according to its decision, the Muslims of Pakistan can choose their future path, he said.
He said unfortunately, people try to push the army into every matter. Don’t put us in a position where we have to use the powers that we have a constitutional right to exercise, he said.
