RAWALPINDI – Former chief of the Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) Gen (r) Faiz Hameed’s daughter Anusha Chaudhry tied the knot in late December.

The country’s former military high command, politicians, journalists, and other notables gathered under one roof to wish the daughter of the country’s former known general, who stepped down lately after a change of command.

The pictures and clips of the wedding hit social media, more than a week after the event, showing Lieutenant General (r) Faiz Hameed walking his daughter to the stage. Anusha, dressed in gold and maroon bridal attire, was also flanked by her other family members.

Those who graced the event also included current Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Sahir Shamshad Mirza, former CJP Saqib Nisar, Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani, PTI’s Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Asad Umar attended the wedding ceremony.

Lieutenant General (r) Faiz Hameed

Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed is a retired three-star general of Pakistan Army's Baloch Regiment. He last served as Bahawalpur Corps Commander. Previously, he served as commander of the Peshawar Corps for less than a year.

The three-star ranking general also served as the 24th Director General of Pakistan's premier spy agency Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) and as GOC 16th Infantry Division Pano Akil.

Hameed received various medals, including Hilal-e-Imtiaz (Military) and Tamgha-e-Diffa for his gallantry services for the country. Faiz Hameed's family is from Latifal, Chakwal.

Faiz took early retirement soon after General Asim Munir was elevated to Chief of Army Staff (COAS). His resignation was approved by the Shehbaz Sharif-led federal cabinet in early December, 2022.
