KARACHI: Di­rec­tor Gen­eral (DG) of In­ter Ser­vices Pub­lic Re­la­tions (ISPR) Ma­jor Gen­eral Asif Ghafoor has said that no one has to prove that they are Mus­lims.

In his ad­dress at Karachi Univer­sity, the ISPR chief said that no one has to prove that they are Mus­lim as it is the is­sue between and in­di­vid­ual and Almighty Al­lah.

"There is no need to raise slo­gans that we are Mus­lims. Prove it with ac­tions," he said.

DG ISPR stated there are many forms of fun­da­men­tal­ism and he called Western coun­tries and In­dia as "fun­de­man­talist states". He added, "When I force oth­ers to fol­low my ide­olo­gies then I will be called ter­ror­ists and ex­trem­ist coun­tries".

He went on to say that the world would con­sider us an Is­lamic coun­try if we fol­low the prin­ci­ples of the re­li­gion.

The ISPR Chief also stated that Pak­istan is the most beau­ti­ful coun­try cre­ated by Almighty Al­lah and is im­por­tant on geog- ra­phy ba­sis.

Asif Ghafoor stated that Afgha­nis came to Pak­istan when United States in­vaded Afghanistan fol­low­ing 9/11. He said, "Op­er­a­tion Zarb-e-Azb was com­pleted suc­cess­fully and ter­ror­ists were killed step-bystep". "There are no safe havens of ter­ror­ists in Pak­istan but there are ter- ror­ists in the coun­try," he said. He stated that he se­cu­rity forces are tar­geted for mak­ing a coun­try weak.

The ISPR Chief, in a jovial mood, said it felt as if he had ar­rived at a wo­man's univer­sity.

"I asked about the in­crease in the ra­tio of fe­male stu­dents in Karachi Univer­sity from its Vice Chan­cel­lor," he said.
