Pakistan seems to be heartbroken, sobbing, and in disbelief as Pakistan Army announced General Raheel Sharif has kicked off his farewell visits to various army units before his retirement on November 29. This news comes as a shock to hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis around the nation who chant #ThankyouRaheelSharif from the bottom of their hearts.

“The COAS (Chief of Army Staff) kicks off his farewell visits beginning from Lahore today,” Military spokesman Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa said yesterday on November 21st. Bajwa said General Raheel met troops and addressed the gathering of soldiers belonging to the Pakistan Army and Rangers at (Lahore) Garrison.“General Raheel said accomplishment of peace and stability was no ordinary task. Our sacrifices and joint national resolve helped us in off-setting all odds against the country,” he added.

However, Supreme Court has been asked to order conferring the title of ‘Field Marshal’ on Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif for rendering services, so that he can continue to render his services for the beloved nation, by safeguarding its frontier. According to Dawn, The petition is an appeal moved by Sardar Adnan Saleem Khan Mazari — an executive member of the District Bar Association Rawalpindi — against the Oct 18 judgement of the Lahore High Court Rawalpindi bench which had rejected the same plea.

“It is a universal and divine law that whosoever rendered his services for the nation and humanity at a larger scale in an extraordinary, exemplary and selfless manner should be elevated to the highest level of the military hierarchy,” the appeal read.

While the news of Gen. Raheel Sharif is overwhelming the hearts of many, Pakistanis stormed to Twitter to tell the world how proud they are of him and how devastated they are because of him leaving.
