RAWALPINDI – Major General Asif Ghafoor has assumed charge as Director General of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), replacing Lt. Gen. Asim Bajwa.

“Allah be praised! Assumed office of DG ISPR,” Maj-Gen Ghafoor said in his first official tweet, which was also shared by ISPR’s official Facebook account.

In the same tweet, the new DG ISPR also lauded services of his predecessor Lt-Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa.

“Thanks Lt Gen Asim Bajwa for contributions,” he wrote.


Hours before the new military spokesman announced the change of command, he uploaded a new cover photo, featuring young officers and youth, on his official Facebook page. The cover photo carries a slogan ‘United We Rise’.

The outgoing DG ISPR, Lt. Gen. Asim Bajwa, in a series of tweets, thanked the media for its cooperation during his tenure that spanned four years and seven months.
