General Kayani's full speech at PMA Kakul that was heavily edited by Pakistan's corporate media

The following was originally reported in Urdu by Jehan-e-Pakistan newspaper. It reveals many other statements of the Pakistan Army Chief which, it seems, were purposely censored/ignored by the corporate media in Pakistan that has long been part of a malicious propaganda campaign against the country's military. The team at Terminal X translated it to English for reader convenience.

Addressing a passing-out parade by cadets of the 127th PMA Long Course, 46th Integrated Course and 1st Mujahid Course, Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani said that Islam is the foundation of Pakistan and in no situation can this foundation be ousted from the country.

"We will leave no stone unturned in transforming Pakistan into an ideal Islamic welfare state. Pakistan is a peace loving country, but this should not be considered its weakness. We have patiently ignored provocative statements these past few months; our main focus has been on internal security but rest assured we are fully prepared to effectively deal with external threats as well"

"We managed to control various challenges within a short span of time and are capable of doing this again in the future. We are passing through critical times and in this context, Pakistan Army is fully prepared to counter any aggression with resolute determination. The nation has always supported Pakistan Army".

"I assure you that if we stay attached with the passionate force that motivated the creation of Pakistan, we will be able to make progress as one nation".

"Islam should always remain as a uniting factor. I assure you that despite stern opposition, Pakistan Army will remain committed to the pledge of making Pakistan an ideal Islamic welfare state as envisioned by Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal"

Pakistan's Army Chief added, "Undoubtedly, no one can harm Pakistan (by Allah's will) as long as the Pakistan Army and its people stand together as one".

  1. Be pragmatic and through the enemies of Islam Muslims and Pakistan, the usa nd its allies action speaks louder.
    I am Pakistani living in Indian occupied Pakistan srinagar and large I understand that people of Pakistan with some exceptions are all responsible for the mess Pakistan is in because they don't pave any way to make Pakistan a pak Islamic state where rule of Allah is sovereign the ultimate authority but u people trust more on the power of usa then Supreme power the Allah.hardships are trials through which Allah tests its believers so are the good be steadfast in fulfilling the promise of Pakistan.

  2. Army is always coming forward to protect whether it is inner threat or outer threat. But I personally feel inner threat is more dangerous than outer. Outer we know our enemy but inner to whom we trust they are the culprit.

  3. May Allah keep this spirit alive in all Pakistan army
