KARACHI: Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) Vice President Qaisar Khan Daudzai has condemned propaganda against national institutions “in the strongest possible terms”.
“The country is passing through a critical stage and undue criticism against armed forces at this critical juncture amounts to treason,” Daudzai said in a statement issued on Monday. “The business community rejects the deadly propaganda, which is a conspiracy that has been hatched only to create a rift between masses and national security institutions.”
He said that every Pakistani condemns the unholy moves to discredit the guardians of ideological and geographical borders. “All Pakistanis should give a strong message that the whole nation stands by the army,” he added.
The FPCCI vice president called upon the masses not to succumb to the propaganda and reject the scenario painted by international media and “paid think tanks”.
“In 1947, many politicians and intellectuals described Pakistan as an economically and politically unviable state, but it is still existing and will continue to exist till the end of time.”
He noted that over a dozen countries have initiated their proxy wars in Pakistan. “Therefore, we must support institutions that are fighting for our survival.”
