In response to the recent attack on the official residence of the Lahore Corps Commander by PTI supporters following the arrest of Imran Khan, the Pakistan Army has transferred Lt Gen Salman Fayyaz Ghani to GHQ. The decision was made after a departmental and critical review of the situation revealed that a better and more effective approach could have prevented the incident.
COAS General Syed Asim Munir took notice of the incident and demonstrated his complete command and control by transferring Lt Gen Salman Fayyaz Ghani to GHQ. This decision reflected the COAS’s fair and merit-based thinking and is expected to improve the military’s internal merit and response system.
The move comes as Lt Gen Fayyaz Hussain has been appointed as the new Lahore Corps Commander. The statement released by the military’s media wing highlights the importance of adopting a better and more effective approach to prevent such incidents in the future. Overall, the transfer of Lt Gen Salman Fayyaz Ghani is seen as a positive step towards improving the army’s internal merit and response system.
