ISPR terms BBC report of Gen Bajwa’s late night visit to PM house as fake.


The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) called a BBC Urdu report “fake” on Sunday, claiming that a “unpleasant” meeting between Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairperson Imran Khan and army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa took place at the Prime Minister’s Office hours before Imran’s ouster via a no-trust vote.

According to the BBC, the former prime minister had Gen Bajwa ousted as army chief and was not expecting his visit to the PM’s Office, which included a “exceptional security routine.”

In a June 2019 BBC report titled “Uncovering Pakistan’s Secret Human Rights Abuses,” Pakistani security forces were accused of committing widespread brutality against people of the former FATA during anti-terror operations.

The government of Pakistan filed a protest in reaction to a “defamatory and malicious narrative” published by a foreign news outlet against Pakistani security services, but the BBC has yet to make an apology.
