Halim | 10 years ago | Reply Rangers planted illegal weapon. An important question was left unanswered. What was the source of that weapon? But i am no one to question. I will continue to worship Pak Army....'Zindabaad' everyone.

My 7 year old knows that Army is an institution established under the constitution. Courts interpret the constitution and instruct govt to do things. So, CJ did not remove DG from his orders. He asked Govt. to do that. It was transgression by ISPR instead, to ask govt to re-seat the suspended DG Rangers. Who does not love his "kursi" after all in this country?
