COAS Bajwa inaugurates Army Institute of Military History in Rawalpindi
Former army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and former ISI chief Lt Gen Ahmad Shuja Pasha were among the senior serving and retired military officers who attended the ceremony.
The basic aim to establish the AIMH is to record, archive, preserve and compile Pakistan Army’s history, according to the ISPR statement.
The COAS said that the institute would go a long way in keeping alive the history and heritage of Pakistan Army. The COAS inaugurated the Army Museum in Lahore last year.
This initiative is taken to portray the heritage of Pakistan through various sections, titled Rebirth of a Nation, Quaid and Armed Forces, Shuhada Corner, Nishan-e-Haider Gallery, Life at Highest Battlefield Siachin, Kashmir Corner, and Pakistan’s contributions in the United Nations, Nation Building Efforts and White of the Flag.
Earlier, in August, Rawalpindi Museum opened its doors to the public as a part of country’s 71st Independence Day celebrations.
Special areas are dedicated in the museum to those army officers who fought and lost their lives to terrorism. It has a Kashmir corner, a gallery devoted to the recipients of Nishan-e-Haider, and a Pakistan-India War Story corner.
