    There is much difference between the the Army and civilian Defence Ministers, more so with cheap and corrupt Prime Ministers.Look for instance on the previous Army Chief and the corrupt and self puffed up Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Gen Raeeil Sharif surpassed all previous Army Chiefs. Even look at all past Defence Ministers. They assume superior to the Defence Department that comes under civilian control. But we are lacking in a political working democracy with incompetent and mostly corrupt civilian authority. Look at at bizarre political parties and their cultist heads. Can Imran Kham who is mad to become Prime Minister fits with civilian authority over the Defence Authority. The culprit IK doled out 300 crores as a despot to Maulana Samiul Haq. He is a Taliban-loving person. What has Samiul Haq done with this booty?
    It is time to create a working political system in the country to keep a balance between the Army and civilian Authority.

    Democracy/Capitalism has failed Pakistan and it will continue to fail it, what do you expect from a system that espouses corruption and only looks after the wealthy and elite. In the Islamic system no one is above the law neither the Leader, Governor, Mayor. Politician or Army Chiefs, all are held accountable by the people as Islam encourages enjoining the good on the rulers, there are also other mechanisms such as the Court of Unjust Acts (highest court) or Majlis al-Ummah which even non-muslim partake in.

    The Muslims need to look to their own Aqeedah to solve problems!
