LAHORE: This is with reference to Air Vice-Marshal (retd) Shahzad Chaudhry’s article of May 15 titled “A little help for the DCC”.
The problem with our retired generals is that when they are in service, and especially when their period of service happens to be martial law, they forget all norms of diplomacy or that the economy is vulnerable and the internal dangers the country faces. I don’t remember a single instance of a general, admiral or air marshal resigning in protest against the imposition of martial law.
