ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa along with his family dined at an Islamabad hotel without any security protocol.

This was the first time that the army chief did so. He arrived at the restaurant with family without any protocol and security for dinner. He also met with the people present there.

His visit without the necessary elaborate security showed that peace has largely been restored in Pakistan and the terrorist threat has alleviated significantly because of continuing anti-terror operations all over the country.

It was a pleasant surprise for the people who were there in the restaurant. Generally, such places are got vacated on the visits of such high profile personalities.

Bajwa took charge as the 16th army chief on November 29, 2016. He is playing an unprecedented role in restoring peace in Pakistan. During his brief tenure, Pakistan Super League Final was held in Lahore, International footballers and Wrestlers visited Pakistan.

They were hosted by the Pakistan army. After their visits, they described as Pakistan as a safe country where sports could be played without any fear.

The Pakistan army launched Operation Raddul Fasaad and Khyber-4 under the commander of Bajwa. The army chief has frequently met the troops engaged in combat with terrorists in various parts of Pakistan particularly tribal areas.

Also, he has frequently visited the Line of Control (LoC) in Azad and Jammu Kashmir to buoy up the troops.

Bajwa says the anti-terror operations would continue till the elimination of all criminals.
