Durrani parries query on Quaid views on army

ISLAMABAD, Dec 21: Federal Minister for Information Mohammad Ali Durrani said on Thursday the birthday of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah would be celebrated in a befitting manner.

However, speaking at a news conference here, he declined to offer comments on the Quaid’s vision of armed forces’ role in the country. A reporter had asked his comment on Quaid-i-Azam’s declaration after the creation of Pakistan that the role of armed forces would be limited to their defence duties and they would not involve themselves in politics or administration. The minister only said everything in the country was being done according to the Constitution.
