Tonight With Moeed Pirzada: Haroon Ur Rasheed’s take on the Civil-Military Relations!

Renowned analyst and commentator, Mr Haroon Ur Rasheed joined Doctor Pirzada to comment on the civil-military relations and speculations revolving around the army chief’s extension. Mr Rasheed said that he did not think the Chief of the Army Staff General Raheel Sharif would accept the government’s offer for any sort of extension in his tenure or promotion to the rank of field marshal because that would weaken his position by a great deal and General Raheel is a cautious man.
Mr. Rasheed also said that it would be unwise for the government to consider itself in calm waters. Everything, he said, was an attempt to divert attention from the government’s own problems.
