The Military has a strong influence on civil administration, it has been maintaining it in bureaucratic hierarchy, so that it can help them to take over all the executive offices whenever they require.
The democracy was raided at least 3 times in the last 70 years, military misleads the innocent people of Pakistan to promote its agenda by creating fabricated threat perception, and its motives of overthrowing of Democratically Elected civilian government was never justified. The biggest threat for Pakistan’s military is India, they consider it an existential threat, but in actual India has never taken any step against Pakistan’s national security, India has answered only its military aggression.
The civilian government has huge disagreements with military establishment on Kashmir conflict, foreign affairs, terrorism, and sectarianism, the government wants a peaceful solution of Kashmir conflict and want to go with different approach to deal with foreign offices, but the military wants it to prolong as it helps them to create threat perception for national security, they are using terrorism to fight the proxy against India in Kashmir, an Indian territory and United States in Afghanistan, and at both places, they use sectarian as a tool for political gain.
Civilian establishment, civil society, and media are working hard to strengthen democracy in Pakistan even in such a stressful environment, there is always a risk of being overthrown, prosecution and killing, there is very less space for parliamentarian, they can be seen bowing down to terrorist, sectarian and separatist due to the pressure of military establishment, civil society and media personal are getting disappeared for making the contrary opinion against the military.
People of Pakistan must denounce the military action against its own democratically elected government, their intervention in internal and external affairs, and proxy war against a neighbor. They must learn from people of Turkey how they had defended democratically elected President Erdoğan in 2016 during an attempted military coup. Prosperity and peace could only prevail in Pakistan due to democracy not by martial law, they must contain military for the only defense, and military shouldn’t allow asking for stakeholder in civilian administration.
