Pulwama conspirator Asim Munir became Pakistan’s army chief..Know the story

Putting an end to all rumors and apprehensions, Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has chosen General Asim Munir as the country’s next army chief. On Thursday, on behalf of Information Minister Maryam Aurangzeb in the Shahbaz government, it was said that the PM has taken this decision using the powers available with him. Lena General Munir will now succeed Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa who is retiring on November 29. General Munir, a favorite of General Bajwa, first came into limelight in October 2018 when he became the chief of the intelligence agency ISI. India is keeping a close watch on the developments in its neighbourhood. Lena General Munir is the same person under whose leadership India suffered the Pulwama terror attack in February 2019 when he was the ISI chief. Even India’s National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval once attacked Munir.

pulwama conspiracy

All the decisions were taken behind the scenes when the tension between India and Pakistan was at its peak after the Pulwama terror attack in February 2019. Only General Munir was taking it. At that time General Munir was the ISI chief. Apart from this, Munir was the most important person in the military panel that took major decisions on security policies and Pakistan’s response during the attack. He had even said that the new ISI chief should take responsibility for the Pulwama terror attack. The hanging was given only on the instigation of General Munir. The attack was carried out under the same modus operandi of ISI, which is always used to prepare terrorists against India.

Aware of every nook and corner of Kashmir

Lena General Munir was also the Northern Sector Commander and Director General of Military Intelligence before becoming the ISI chief. He is aware of every nook and corner of Jammu and Kashmir. When he was made ISI chief at the behest of General Bajwa, military experts considered it part of a larger conspiracy against India. Munir is also called an expert on Kashmir. Munir wanted to prove himself as the best ISI boss against Bajwa and the country’s government. Aware of every part of Kashmir, Munir used his experience and helped Jaish-e-Mohammed in the Pulwama terror attack.

General Munir Sr. of the Frontier Force Regiment is the most 3 Star General and a favorite of General Bajwa. Lt Gen Munir was posted there in the rank of Brigadier when Gen Bajwa was the commander of X Corps. In the year 2017, General Bajwa made him the Director General i.e. Chief of Military Intelligence and within a year he also became the Chief of ISIA.
