ISLAMABAD - The elements behind an organized conspiracy against the Pakistan Army should be brought to justice, said Senator Irfan Siddiqui on Friday. Talking to journalist here at the Parliament House, the senator said that army’s interference in political affairs, imposition of martial laws, and those generals who abrogated the constitution have always been criticized. This has been a major cause of the current crisis, but now Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has targeted the Pakistani Army as an institution, he said. The incumbent Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Syed Asim Munir, who was targeted before his appointment, still remains the target of smear campaigns, he said. In response to a question, Senator Siddiqui said that the PTI was targeting the army not only within the country but also at the international level. The protest outside the British Prime Minister’s residence and other places was part of the same plan. He said letters were being sent to United Nations and other organizations and they have hired firms for “speeding propaganda.” Siddiqui said that PTI leaders were reaching out to diplomats in Islamabad to make them believe that the army was trampling on basic human rights through the government, and that the army was responsible for whatever was happening in the country. PML-N lawmaker said that targeting the army as an institution and accusing its chief was equivalent to playing with national defense. Responding to a question, he admitted that these elements were playing with the national defence, but incumbent govt was giving them unnecessary concessions. He said that these elements should be put in the dock at earliest.
