Aftab Iqbal, a non-partisan and credible journalist has revealed the Nawaz Sharif asked Gen. Bajwa to remove Gen. Asif Ghafoor, the formal DGISPR after Nawaz agreed to vote his extension in National Assembly.

If the news is true, because of another NRO, Pakistan has suffered and lost a shining star who was performing very well on his position. Watch 16:37 onwards.


Wait till 10 December Asif Ghafoor will be a Three Star. As per service requirement Maj Gen has to command a Division to be a Lt Gen who can command a corps and be in a run for four star General. I believe Aftab Iqbal has very limited knowledge regarding military's system

The DG ISPR is not supposed to be the equivalent of a PDF member trolling Indians, lifafa's and the 'resistance cake eaters' - he was expected to stay above the fray and remain professional. He did a great job countering Indian State propaganda and promoting Pakistan's version of events post-Balakot, but he should have stuck with being professional, issuing official clarifications on certain issues in an impartial & prompt manner and avoided directly engaging with trolls like Gaurav Arya and others.
Gen Asif Ghafoor repeatedly interfered in political matters. His famous video before elections of 2018 calling it "Tabdeeli Ka Saal" was enough reason to remove him from this professional post.

Better clear concept, He remained in office of DGISPR from 15 Dec 2016 till 31 Jan 2020 and will assume 3 Star appoint in mid December 2020 so 3 years of staff (an extended staff due to good performance) and a year of command as 2 Star Gen. Presently he is commanding an Infantry Division meaning thereby that he is in good books and a running horse. Someone removed doesn't get this posting.

For Asif Ghafoor to progress in his career it was the next step for him to command a division,I don't see any controversy theory in him being transferred from ISPR.

He is a capable guy and by the looks of it would progress much further than the rank of a Major General, those making a brouhaha about a routine transfer are only interested in scoring a few brownie points.

It was a routine transfer come after promotion and I see only Indian trolls tried to exploit it to their best & now Aftab says about Nawaz as well. I am sure that people are aware about the post given to the relevant rank only and upon promotions; officials are transferred accordingly. Sigh.
Rightly Put. He is worthy of commanding a core for sure & may be higher than that. I will not be surprised if later in career his name ends up on PM's desk. Godspeed to him wherever he serves.

I think it was also important for his own growth within the army that he should be transferred. He is posted in Okara on an important position
Yes, probably a command before being promoted & commanding a Core.
