(Pak Destiny) Dawn Leak’s security breach report has brought the Nawaz government and the Pakistan Army on loggerheads.
As the PML-N government issued a notification about the Dawn Leaks report, the army immediately dismissed it telling indirectly the government to stop fooling the people.
“Notification on Dawn Leak is incomplete and not in line with recommendations by the Inquiry Board. Notification is rejected,” Inter Services Public Relations Director General Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said in a tweet.
In a notification issued today, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif removed his Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs Tariq Fatemi in connection of Dawn Leak. The premier directed that the role of Daily Dawn/ Mr Zafar Abbas/ Mr Cyril Almeida (editor and reporter) in the instant matter shall be referred to All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) for necessary disciplinary action to be taken against them.
Nawaz Sharif also ordered action against Rao Tehsin Ali, Principal Information Officer of the Ministry of Information, under the E&D Rules 1973 on the charges based on findings of the inquiry report.
Now the Sharif family is in the dock. The army’s reaction shows that the PML-N government is trying to brush the matter under the carpet which the army will not let it to do so.
It seems the Sharifs days are numbered. – Pak Destiny
