Major General Ahmed Sharif Chaudhry has been appointed as the Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (DG ISPR) in the first reshuffle after new Army Chief Gen Asim Munir took the command.
The official Twitter handle of the Pakistani military’s media wing states that his appointment was made on 6 December 2022, but it was never announced in an official statement like in the past.
As Maj General Ahmed Sharif takes charge he reviewed the whole Bannu attack incident and warned all enemies that are working to bring instability in peace to the country. DG ISPR warned that “Whoever Comes Against Us Will Be Crushed”
Major General Ahmed Sharif Chaudhry, who was earlier posted as DG Defense Science and Technology Organisation (DESTO), has replaced Major Gen Babar Iftikhar who took the role in January 2020 from now Lt-Gen Asif Ghafoor.
Maj Gen Iftikhar was commissioned in 6 Lancers in March 1990. A graduate of Command and Staff College Quetta, National Defence University Islamabad, and the Royal Command and Staff College Jordan, he has significant experience in command, staff, and instructional roles within the Pakistan Army.
Gen Iftikhar also served on the faculty of the Pakistan Military Academy and National Defence University Islamabad.
Remember that Newly Appointed Chief of Army Staff General Asim Munir made his first major reshuffle, with a surprise pick from the corps of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (EME) to lead the army’s media wing.
