ISPR slams misleading tax return propaganda against COAS Gen Bajwa

ISPR slams misleading tax return propaganda against COAS Gen Bajwa!

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement released on Sunday said that data regarding the alleged assets of outgoing Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and his family members making the rounds on social media were “misleading”.

ISPR said that the data was being exaggerated on the basis of assumptions.

“It is totally untrue and based on blatant lies and malice,” the ISPR said, adding the assets of Gen Bajwa, his wife and the rest of his family had been declared to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).

The army chief and his family regularly file their tax returns, the statement added.

“Like every citizen, the army chief and his family are answerable to the tax authorities for their assets,” the statement said.

The ISPR stated that a certain group has cleverly and dishonestly attributed the assets of General Bajwa’s daughter-in-law’s father and family to the army chief and his family. A completely wrong impression is being created that these assets were accumulated by the family of his daughter-in-law’s father during the six-year tenure of Army Chief General Bajwa.

The statement form the military media wing comes days after a report by investigative news website FactFocus accused the army chief and his family of amassing assets worth Rs12.7 billion over the past six years.

FactFocus report cited tax records and wealth statements of the Bajwa family to corroborate its claims about the alleged accumulation of assets by the family inside and outside Pakistan.
