KARACHI – PML-N stalwart Muhammad Zubair has claimed that former Chief of Army Staff General (retd.) Raheel Sharif wouldn’t have even dreamt of becoming the army chief.

Muhammad Zubair who was recently sworn in as Governor Sindh made these remarks during a current affairs program on Samaa TV.

The Sindh governor stated that Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz took the initiative of launching a crackdown against extremist elements in the country refuting the role of military.

‘The impression that the military decided to launch operation against extremism is wrong,’ Zubair said.

It may be mentioned that although Muhammad Zubair apparently termed appointment of Raheel Sharif as military head, a big deal but after the retirement of Raheel Sharif in November last year, he has become a most sought after commander.

As per media reports, he would be joining the Islamic Military Alliance in next few months, for which Pakistani government has also issued a ‘No Objection Certificate’.
