However, the forum expressed dismay at the highly deplorable way. In which certain vested small segments of the media. Particularly social media. Have been maligning the Armed Forces of Pakistan with unfounded accusations of interference.

It stated, “It’s unfortunate that such vested elements’ entire focus is on creating political instability. And uncertainty by attempting to scapegoat others for their own failings.” As opposed to concentrating on real issues like good governance. Economic recovery, political stability, and public well-being.

“Due legal processes” will be followed with evidence and proof, the top brass emphasised. “Rather than resorting to unconstitutional. And uncalled for baseless political rhetoric and emotional outbursts.”

“Malicious attempts to sow confusion, disinformation, and distortions. In this regard are completely pointless and merely a component of a coordinated campaign. Being launched for limited political interests. To obscure the heinous acts that occurred,” the statement read.

“The forum urged the proud people of Pakistan to remain positive and united. To fully participate in the progress and development of their country.
