Islamabad, Pakistan. Taking a cue from the farewell given by the BCCI to one of India’s greatest sons Sachin Tendulkar, Pakistan has decided to give farewell to its own son of soil General Kayani in their own special way.
The new Army chief Raheel Sharif is reported to have taken this decision so that there is smooth transition of power.
According to reports from across the border, Pak Army, in collaboration with allied outfits like LeT, Al-Qaida, etc. is planning to have one last bomb blast in the honor of the outgoing chief.
“Kayani would be in charge of the blast and will carry out the carnage for one last time before he bids good bye,” Nawaz Sharif told the media and public amidst huge cheers.
Though the venue of the attack is not yet short listed, but many options are being considered.
While Kayani has requested Pakistan authorities to have it in his native place in front of his home crowd at Gujar Khan in Tehsil district of Punjab, but PBBB (Pakistan Board of Bomb Blasts) is keen to have in Peshawar, which has long been the Mecca of bomb blasts.
Sources say that at one point of time India was being considered as the venue, but Kayani dropped the idea and said he wanted a more “challenging” farewell.
“Carrying out a blast in India is not a big deal. It’s like India inviting West Indies for Sachin’s farewell series,” Kayani is reported to have said, which was applauded by Pakistan Taliban that had earlier warned Pakistani media not to praise Sachin.
“Further, we lost couple of soldiers after they died with an unbearable bout of laughter hearing yet another condemnation statement from Indian government. We can’t risk losing more soldiers in this fashion,” clarified an official of Pak government on what made them change their mind.
Meanwhile the incumbent chief Rasheel Sharif is excited and hoped that he would be able to fill the void that was created by departure of Kayani.
“Those are some difficult shoes to fill. But I am already excited and looking forward to work under the leadership and guidance of Janaab Hafiz Saeed,” said the new COAS.
