I have been to the homes of many presidents, prime ministers and big businessmen of Pakistan, but I have not seen the luxury that I have seen in the homes of generals and soldiers, in the home of any Indian soldier. Currently General Qamar Bajwa is the Commander in Chief of Pakistan.
Pakistan army is considered to be the most corrupt army in the world. Every ambitious young man of Pakistan wants to join army because it is easiest to grow mustache and earn money there. It cannot be said whether the people of Pakistan respect the soldiers too much or fear them too much. When I first visited Pakistan almost 40 years ago, I went to a shop near the army headquarters in Rawalpindi to buy books. Seeing me, the owner of that shop and all the employees started saluting me, because in those days I was wearing a safari suit and also had a big moustache. After selecting the books, when I asked for the bill, the owner said, Sir, how do you talk? I put books in your car.
I have been to the homes of many presidents, prime ministers and big businessmen of Pakistan, but I have not seen the luxury that I have seen in the homes of generals and soldiers, in the home of any Indian soldier. Currently General Qamar Bajwa is the Commander in Chief of Pakistan. His total personal wealth is around Rs.500 crores. Estimates are being made. His address has been provided by a website campaigning against him. This is also being cited as the reason for his voluntary retirement! This may be a slight exaggeration, but just compare them to our generals. Those poor people somehow live on their pensions. While I have seen the palatial homes of many Pakistani soldiers in London, New York, Frankfurt and Dubai, I have not seen a single home of an Indian commander abroad till date.

The army in Pakistan has created such a terrible fear of India that the people of Pakistan are forced to make it their surveyor. He accepts any big soldier as his dictator. She ousts popular leaders like Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Benazir and Nawaz Sharif whenever she wants. Even the life of a leader like Imran Khan becomes haram. Not only this, the Pakistan Army has also seized the Patta (Note) along with the power. By pretending to be a Rajput, he has also started baniyagiri. He spent around 1.5 lakh crore rupees. Has run a business. Businesses like banking, medical services, fertilizers, seeds, oil, petrol pumps, power houses, airport services etc. have been opened in it from all over the world. Organizations of these professions have been given many names, but they are run exclusively by soldiers.
Big soldiers have their own private businesses. In Pakistan and abroad too! Billions of Rs. Newspapers in London and New York often expose these businesses and their secret accounts in Swiss banks, but the people of Pakistan do not openly rebel against them because it is ingrained in their hearts that India must not leave Pakistan. But it is the almighty army, by whose grace it is saved. The day the fear of India is removed from the minds of Pakistanis, this army will start walking on its tracks. If the army starts running on track then Pakistan can also become a democratic country like India.
