  • This is a very bad move. Now in the future no one will talk about any internal corruption. Also it is a shame that one organization is putting their reputation on the line just to protect their one retired person. This example is showing us that some people are considered holier than others and they are untouchables. Also NAB has taken no action and is silent. This is not the Pakistan that we deserve. We deserve a country where no one is above the law. Please treat everyone equally. If Politicians can be summoned to NAB then a Retired A_rmy officer should be summoned to NAB as well. Selective Accountability is a form of Corruption as we should avoid such corruption at all costs.

    • Malik you seems to be a part of patwari and qadiani group that are working with enemies of Pakistan and are working closely with foreign agents to harm Pakistan in this 5th generarion hybrid warfare. Our Paak Fouj is our pride and no one should question them. We are always standing with them no matter what.

      • Pak Fauj is our pride only when it stays the heck out of politics. I would be glad to say that Pak Fauj is the organisation solely responsible for the country’s destruction. People like you are blinded by the fact that just because the field soldiers are martyred so the higher generals are angels. As soon as people like you realise that Pak Fauj has become our ENEMY and stand up against these BLOODSUCKERS the better it is for Pakistan as it will save the country from further destruction.

      • Biggest corrupt mafia in Pakistan are not politicians but these fauji generals. For enemies they create songs “dushman kay bachon ko parhana hay” and abduct and murder their own children. Kom ko truck ki bati key peechay laga kar loot rahay hain. Until fauji cancer is surgically removed from Pakistan, there will be no progress. Pakistan’s real pride are the engineers and scientists who made Pakistan invisible. Who migrate overseas and send back valuable foreign exchange. Not these low IQ generals, who only know how to make money through corruption, selling pizzas or meddling in civilian matters.

  • SECP register the data of registered companies only. But Mr Bajwa has stated that these companies dont exist?. If SECP officers are warned about whistleblowing then this means that these companies do exist. It is a clear cut case of corruption and it is a shame that people who want to end corruption from Pakistan are being threatened like that. Madine ki Riasat?.

  • If Companies are legitimate then why they afraid, why issuing warning to SECP staff? If one is legitimate then there should be no fear. The fear is there so there is something wrong.
