Country’s Armed Forces along with the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) and Services Chiefs have strongly condemned the criminal acts perpetrated during the May 9 riots last year, resolving not to allow its "executors" to get away with their violent acts, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), while terming May 9 as one of the darkest days in the country's national history, issued a statement on Thursday saying the politically motivated and brainwashed miscreants in an act of rebellion deliberately resorted to violence against state institutions and vandalised sacred symbols of the state and the sites belonging to national heritage.

Violent protests and riots broke out across the country with charged mobs vandalising private and public properties including military installations following Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan’s arrest on May 9 last year.

In its statement, the military’s media wing said "Failing to undermine national harmony and stability, the planners, facilitators and executors of this conspiracy embarked upon a sinister campaign of hate against the Armed Forces and the State with an intent to twist the narrative to their advantage and shift the blame on the state institutions."

The ISPR statement maintained that it is precisely for this reason there can neither be any compromise with the planners, facilitators and executors of the May 9 tragedy nor would they be allowed to hoodwink the law of land. "Bringing the real culprits of 9th May to justice is paramount to ensure that in future, no one dares to desecrate the memories of our heroes and the symbols of our unity through such an unwarranted conduct in future," the statement added.

The ISPR said that the acts were a futile attempt to bring about a misplaced and short-sighted revolution in the country. "By displaying utmost restraint during this deliberate and brazenly orchestrated violence, Pakistan Armed Forces thwarted the insidious conspiracy by the planners, facilitators and executors who wanted to destabilise Pakistan by inciting confrontation between the people and the Armed Forces," it added.

The ISPR statement added that the country's Armed Forces today have renewed their resolve to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Pakistan and defeat nefarious designs of the enemies – both external and internal. "Our Shuhada and their families are pride of Pakistan. The Armed Forces of Pakistan pledge to uphold their dignity and respect at all costs. Pakistan Armed Forces hold a very special relationship with the people of Pakistan," the statement said.

The statement invited the nation to join hands to strongly denounce the conspiracies to weaken Pakistan and work together for the prosperity and stability of our beloved country. "Pakistan Armed Forces Zinda’bad, Pakistan Painda’bad."
