Just when you thought the army chief couldn't get any more popular, he set the bar even higher.

General Raheel Sharif once again reigned supreme on Twitter as he dismissed 11 military officers over corruption charges.

The army chief’s decision came in the middle of an unfolding scandal over Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family’s offshore wealth, so it was no surprise when people drew comparisons to a lack of action from the government and heaped praise on General Raheel for making another admirable decision.
