Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has performed Hajj, according to a short video that went viral on social media.

In the video, the army chief dressed in white shalwar kameez can be seen meeting Pakistani pilgrims and asking them to “pray for Pakistan”.

As soon as the pilgrims spotted Gen Bajwa, they surrounded him and took selfies with him.

Prime Minister’s Special Representative for Interfaith Harmony Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi also tweeted the video of the army chief with a caption: “The love and affection of the Muslims of Pakistan and the world for General Qamar Javed Bajwa, the Commander-in-Chief of the nation.”

He also lauded the Saudi government for making elaborate Hajj arrangements and optimum facilities provided to pilgrims.

Ashrafi, who also performed Hajj this year, said in a statement that the pilgrims hailing from across the world reached the Rami Al Jamarat in discipline and organised manners due to the security and Crowd Management System introduced by the Saudi government.
