Shall Never Let Country’s Stability Go Away At Any Cost: COAS

SARGODHA: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the Special Services Group (SSG) Headquarters on Wednesday in what appears to be a show of solidarity with the former president Musharraf.

“We have brought stability by failing all inimical forces operating against Pakistan. We shall never let it go away at any cost,” the army chief said during the visit to the SSG Headquarters on Wednesday.

“SSG is our pride with myriad contributions towards the defence of [the] country through its valiant officers and soldiers since the creation of Pakistan,” Gen Qamar was quoted as saying by the director-general of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a tweet.

The SSG, colloquially known as the Maroon Berets due to their distinctive service headgear, or commandoes, is the special operations force of the Pakistan Army mandated and tasked with their five primary missions: foreign internal defence, reconnaissance, direct actions, counter-terrorism, and the unconventional warfare being their most important mission.

Musharraf had joined the SSG shortly after the end of the 1965 war. He had served the elite force from 1966 to1972 – the period during which he was first promoted to captain and then to major rank. During the 1971 war, he was the company commander of an SSG commando battalion.
