The statement further added: “While the whole nation stood with the institution in this difficult time certain insensitive quarters resorted to hurtful and derogatory comments on social media which is unacceptable and highly condemnable.” Separately, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Spokesperson Major General Babar Iftikhar on Friday ruled out any chance that Pakistan’s soil has been used in the killing of Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in Afghanistan. Speaking to a private TV channel, he said that the foreign office has already given explanation on the incident of killing of Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri in US drone strike in Afghanistan and it was not appropriate to discuss this topic again and again.

The DG ISPR went on to say that the negative propaganda hurt the family of the martyrs, armed forces and the entire nation, adding that the attitude should be condemned at all levels.
