The army’s inquiry into the Karachi incident has recommended the removal of Pakistan Rangers and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) officials involved in the “Karachi incident” for creating an unwarranted situation causing misunderstanding between two state institutions”. Court of Inquiry on the orders of COAS Gen Javed Qamar Bajwa pertaining to the issue of redress of Inspector General Police Sindh’s grievances, in the backdrop of 18 Oct 2020 Karachi incident, has been completed.”

That the army leadership has acted timely and swiftly is a fact. Pakistan People’s Party’s chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has rightly praised the army chief Gen Bajwa for conducting an inquiry through Karachi Corps Commander to unearth the facts behind the unfortunate Karachi incident and fix responsibility. The PML-N Quaid, Nawaz Sharif, however, rejected the report of this inquiry. He has described it as “failed effort on scapegoating juniors and hiding the truth.”

This is highly unfortunate on his part. The PML-N Quaid seems to be acting in a highly irresponsible way. He ought to have followed in the footsteps of Bilawal.
