LAHORE – Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Wednesday turned a year older today (November 11).

General Bajwa was appointed as the COAS by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in November 2016. He was to retire in November but the incumbent government of PTI gave him extension for next three years in view of the regional security situation.

Born in Gujranwala, General Bajwa was educated at the Sir Syed College and Gordon College in Rawalpindi before joining the Pakistan Military Academy in 1978.

Wishes are pouring in for him on Twitter with prayers of long life, health and happiness. The #سالگرہ_مبارک_جنرل_باجوہ (#HappyBirthdayGeneralBajwa) remained one of the top trends on Twitter in the country.
