7 Takeaways From Javed Chaudhry's Column On Ex-COAS Bajwa
Former Chief of Army Staff, Retired Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa has lately been in the headlines for a number of reasons, but many aspects of his life are not known and deserve a spotlight.

Recently, columnist Javed Chaudhry made an attempt to do so. Let's have a look at the 7 takeaways from his piece.

  1. His wife got their family home built under her supervision. She loves interior decoration and has been buying antiques all her life. She is very fond of cleanliness and so the medium-sized house looks extremely clean.

  2.  Once former PM Imran Khan told him, quoting his wife Bushra Bibi, that he was under a magical spell, to which he said, "I know who it is; my wife."

  3. Gen (retd) Bajwa is sad about the news regarding his assets. He knows FBR men leaked data of 50 people and reports wrongly quoted others' assets as his.

  4. He likes to dunk cake-rusk in his tea and enjoys the simplicity in it. He laughing tells about how a cook hired by Nawaz Sharif left the Prime Minister's House along-with the ex-premier, leaving no taste in the kitchen's tea.

  5. The reports about Bajwa-Faiz Hameed rift are baseless; the latter visited the former following his retirement and the duo is now working together on a welfare project.

  6. He talks about the hard-work and approach of some of Imran Khan's Cabinet members, especially Hafeez Sheikh and Farogh Nasim, while blames Buzdar and Shehzad Akbar for ex-PM's failures.

  7. He acknowledges Chief of Army Staff Gen Asim Munir's professionalism and patriotism, and the fact that he knows Arabic, understands the dynamics of the Gulf countries and enjoys good ties with the royal families. He thinks that Gen Asim Munir is a hardened soldier and can tackle any pressure. He thinks the COAS will successfully deal with the internal and external challenges. However, he fears that Gen Asim Munir may be trolled like he was.
