Afghan national heckles ex-Pak army chief, wife in Europe

Islamabad, Jun 6 (IANS): Former Pakistan army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa and his wife were heckled by an unruly man, apparently an Afghan national, in a European country, the media reported.

A short video clip of the incident, which went viral on social media, shows the couple vacationing in a European country, Geo News reported.

In the video, the duo could be seen sitting on stairs and using a mobile phone when the unidentified man emerged and started hurling abuses in his native language at the former army chief, Geo News reported.

Despite the aggressive behaviour and use of cuss words by the rowdy man, the former army chief kept his cool and ignored him.

Independent sources could not verify when and where this video was recorded.

However, social media users while condemning the aggressive and immoral attitude of the man claimed that the incident took place in France, Geo News reported.

General Bajwa retired from the post of army chief in November 2022 after serving six years in office.

Prior to his appointment as Chief of Army Staff in November 2016, General Bajwa was serving as Inspector General of Training and Evaluation at the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi.

General Bajwa has commanded X Corps (Rawalpindi Corps), which is responsible for the most sensitive areas of the country and a position that plays a pivotal role as almost the entire border with India comes under its jurisdiction.

The entire defence installations, including the army, navy and air headquarters, and PM Secretariat are also under the responsibility of X Corps.
