This is the evidence, in a long list, that Pakistan is a not by any stretch of imagination a Democracy or wants to be. The nation which gives more importance to a Army Chief's speech than a PM's or President's cannot become a Democratic nation.

When was the last time Indians or the Americans gave so much coverage to their Army Chief's speech?
