    How good is Bilal Akbar? Looks like board is impressed by him, commanding the X Corps makes him a candidate for COAS position.

    Does anyone know some background info on Lt Gen Muhammad Naeem Ashraf, the new Commander 2 Corps Multan? The army would only appoint it's best general to the Strike Corps right?

    Depends on the metrics used, for Musharraf it was his buddies and those that knew how much gin he likes in his tonic.

    Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord, the famous German general:

    “I divide my officers into four groups. There are clever, diligent, stupid and lazy officers. Usually two characteristics are combined. Some are clever and diligent — their place is the General Staff. The next lot are stupid and lazy — they make up 90 percent of every army and are suited to routine duties. Anyone who is both clever and lazy is qualified for the highest leadership duties, because he possesses the intellectual clarity and the composure necessary for difficult decisions. One must beware of anyone who is stupid and diligent — he must not be entrusted with any responsibility because he will always cause only mischief.”

    These are intra institutional changes and the COAS has total authority over it. Civilian govt does not interfere into institutions like army and judiciary. However if both institutions need help, the govt will be there helping them.

    Why India insist on civil govt. to interfere in operations of the best performing institute of Pakistan?
    Does India have it's stooges embedded in civilian govt. of Pakistan?
