Pakistanis have rejected ‘malicious’ anti-army propaganda, says military


LAHORE: Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor on Wednesday said that the nation’s support for the armed forces on election day was a clear indicator of its rejection of “malicious” propaganda.

“Thank you, fellow Pakistanis. The world has seen your love and respect for Pak Armed Forces and Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) today. You have rejected all kinds of malicious propaganda. We are strong because we have your unflinching support. Our lives are dedicated to Pakistan and its People. Pakistan wins again!” the DG ISPR said in a tweet.

The tweet came a few minutes after polling closed across the country at 6pm and the vote count was initiated.

More than 350,000 troops were deployed across the country to maintain law and order situation on the polling days.
