ISLAMABAD: Major General Ahmed Sharif has been appointed as the new Director General, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), replacing Lieutenant General Babar Iftikhar, who has been posted as Corps Commander V Corps (Sindh), sources in the military said.

Maj Gen Sharif was previously serving as Director-General Defence Science and Technology Organization (DESTO), which is a secretive organization engaged in scientific and technical research and the development of weapons systems in the disciplines of aerodynamics, propulsion and propellants, and avionics.

However, as an inter-services organisation it is overseen by the Joint Services Headquarters and works closely with the Strategic Plans Division (SPD).

Maj Gen Ahmed Sharif is from the corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (EME), who has reportedly also served in the Military Operations directorate and Military Intelligence.

Lt Gen Iftikhar will now head to Karachi after being posted as V Corps commander, replacing Lt Gen Mohammad Saeed.

Sources maintained that Lt Gen Mohammad Saeed will likely be posted as Chief of General Staff (CGS) and Lt Gen Shahid Imtiaz to be commander X Corps.

Lt Gen Muhammad Ali is expected to be posted as Quartermaster General (QMG) and Lt Gen Nauman Zakaria as the Chief Logistic School (CLS). Lt Gen Saqib Mahmood is likely to be posted as commander 31 Corps and Lt Gen Shahbaz Khan as Army Strategic Forces Command (ASFC).

Let’s hope press releases and in fact, the entire department now deals with R&D related matters. Engage industries, not politicians. That’ll ensure the growth of the defence industry and create thousands of jobs for people educated in different fields of engineering, IT and even mass communication. An example of mass communication is encouraging new sports and cartoon channels to protect the minds of our young people. Disney tries to control the minds of children, promoting LGBTQRSTUV+/- at a very young age. Also, produce consumer electronics and social media platforms to go with them. In this day and age, these are national security issues. We must also protect our intellectual property. IP theft was once a problem emanating from east Asia. Now, it’s commonplace in the so-called West for reasons that are irrelevant to us, as we have nothing to do with their shenanigans. Careem and Daraz being bought by corporations that we could’ve competed with at the global scale is also concerning.

Lets hope that new ISPR Chief stops telling the nation exchange rate movement and virtues and vices of political narratives. And concentrate on forces professional matters.
