#PIANeedsArshadMalik: Twitter Demands PIA CEO Arshad Malik’s Reinstatement

A Sindh High Court (SHC) ruling earlier this week declared Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Arshad Malik, ineligible to perform the duties as the head of the flag carrier due to lack of aviation management experience and relevant educational background.

On 11th October 2018, Air Marshal Arshad Mahmood Malik assumed office as the Chairman of PIA. Later, on 2nd April 2019, he was appointed at the post of CEO of PIA.


The Twitterati have come in favor of the axed PIA official as the airline significantly improved its performance under his leadership, bashing the SHC for its verdict.

Twitter is swarmed with messages of love for Arshad Malik under the hashtag #PIANeedsArshadMalik, calling for his reinstatement as the PIA CEO.





Do you think Air Marshal Arshad Malik should continue as PIA CEO? Let us know in the comments section.

  • Though SHC has pronounced that Arshad Malik does not have the relevant Education and experience it is a fact that he has, in the shortest period managed to turn PIA around. He should be reinstated, further better the Jiyalas indicted by the corrupt PPP should be thrown out to get rid of this extra liability on PIA.

    • Right on. We dont need anyone with aviation experience, Other airlines did not put people at the top who had aviation experience, they put corporate people in charge who can run it as a business.

  • If rising to the level of Vice Chief of Air staff does not mean education, experience and administrative capability, what else does?. The union wants some dummy so that they have their way and PIA continues to rot and bleed Pakistan like it’s been doing and what they are used to.. Keep him in place, please.

  • My personal experience with PIA few days ago was horrible. He may be doing better and may need few more years to turn it around. But the fact of the matter is corrupt, conscienceless and unqualified personnel running operations and unless a clean sweep it would be even worst in coming years with changes in country’s political structure.

  • He should resume his office, I think he has the required experience to run the PIA show. At this level, management skills are required and Mr. Arshad Malik has proved it with positive results. What else the SHC wants??????

  • On SHC decision no comments;but as a human we know what is sour and what is sweet. Mr.Arshad Malik has done great job.
