The future of Pakistan is intertwined with democracy and the youth will determine the path that the country takes, said army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Tuesday.
“Future of Pakistan is in the hands of youth. You [youth] will set the direction for Pakistan as leaders… Pakistan’s future is linked with democracy,” remarked the chief of army staff (COAS) while interacting with a youth delegation from Sindh who visited the military’s media wing headquarters in Rawalpindi.
“This is the beginning of change,” he added.
According to a video clip tweeted by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), General Qamar said that Sindh had played a significant role in the creation of Pakistan.
“The youth of Sindh are loyal and hardworking,” he remarked while appreciating the delegation.
“Believe me, you can change the directions of the seas. We need to reach at a level where our voices can be heard. All around the world, revolutions are only brought by the youth,” the army chief said.
He also spoke about the importance of merit-based system for the success of any institution. “The army’s system is based on merit and we can only achieve success with the help of merit and there is no other way.”
The COAS went on to say that the moral authority is superior to military power and no religion in the world allowed injustice with others.
While talking about the peace and law and order in the country’s economic hub, he said: “We cleared Karachi of terrorists.”
