Chief of the Army Staff General Asim Munir has declared that the Army is well aware of its “constitutional limits” and wants others to uphold the Constitution, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing the graduate passing-out parade as chief guest at Pakistan Air Force’s (PAF) Asghar Khan Academy in Risalpur on Thursday, General Asim Munir maintained that Article 19 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan clearly defines the limits of freedom of speech and expression of opinion. “Those who flout the clear restrictions imposed on freedom of expression as enshrined in the Constitution cannot point fingers at others,” the COAS remarked.

The Army Chief said there is a possibility that the arms race may cause power imbalance in this region.

General Asim Munir said India has been illegally occupying Kashmir. “World’s apathy on Indian aggression in Kashmir cannot silence the freedom cry of the Kashmiris.

Pakistan will continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri brethren.

General Asim Munir, while lauding the professionalism of Pakistan Air Force, said that the PAF has always lived up to the expectations of the nation. He said without a strong air force, a country is at the mercy of any aggressor.

The Army Chief said Pakistan Air Force patrolled the airspace in all kinds of difficulties with unparalleled bravery and professionalism, and February 2019 is a great example for all of us.

The Army Chief asked the passed-out cadets that they are the centre of our hopes, the guardians of the skies and the guarantors of the regional unity. He said they expect that the cadets will lead a life adorned with the virtues of character, courage and competence.

General Asim Munir expressed the confidence that the passed-out cadets will never hesitate to sacrifice for the defence, honour and dignity of the motherland.

He said the military leadership expects you that you will always uphold our nation's best spirit, professionalism and the eternal tradition of bravery.

Turning to prevailing situation in Palestine, the Army Chief said Gaza war is the latest example of the sufferings that wars can bring. He said indiscriminate killing of elderly people, women and children in Gaza is proof that violence is increasing in the world.

About Indian illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, he said India has illegally occupied Kashmir. He said silence of the entire world about the ongoing Indian aggression in Kashmir cannot suppress the voice of freedom there.

The Army Chief said we will continue to provide moral, political and diplomatic support to our Kashmiri brothers.
