ISPR DG tells students to know digital world challenges


RAWALPINDI: Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor on Friday urged the youth to play pivotal role in foiling heinous designs of the country’s enemies, asking them to keep up with the emerging challenges of the digital world.

According to the military’s media wing statement, a delegation of students and teachers hailing from Gilgit Baltistan, visited the headquarters of the ISPR and held a meeting with its DG.

The delegation extended its gratitude for the social and economic development in the region.

Major General Ghafoor while apprising the delegation, about the steps being taken by the Pakistan Army for enduring peace and stability in the region, stressed upon the students to be aware of the challenges in the latest digital world.

“Youth are being targeted on the various forms of the social media in this era of fifth generation warfare,” he maintained.

The students were also urged to positively contribute for the national development.

Back in the month of November, 2018, a delegation of journalists from Gilgit Baltistan, Azad Kashmir and Hazara Division had visited the ISPR’s headquarters.

According to a statement issued by the ISPR, journalists shared their feedback on security situation and development work undertaken by the Pakistan Army.

The ISPR DG apprised them about the situation along the Line of Control (LoC) and Indian Ceasefire Violations (CFV), including deliberately targeting of innocent civilians from across the frontier dividing the disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

He said, “Despite restricted liberty of action for response to Indian fire due to the presence of our Kashmiri brethren on both sides of LOC, Indian fire is always effectively responded focusing on Indian posts only being a professional and responsible Army.”
