Armed forces of Pakistan stand out amongst Pakistan’s institutions with a semblance of organisational strength, discipline and management. They are showing resilience in the face of blatant onslaughts for destruction like other institutions. Armed forces are seen and perceived differently by the common man of Pakistan and elite of the country. Common man sees them with reverence as their saviour against all the odds. Conversely, elite of Pakistan sees Armed Forces as stumbling block in their designs which I resist to call NEFARIOUS. Armed forces too have some grey areas however, on the whole being from lower and lower middle class they think and work for the betterment of havenots. For Armed Forces it is better to be loved by the masses notwithstanding the ire and contempt they get from the elite.
