Gen Ashfaq Nadeem Passed Away, his Contributions and Last Wish
His services in the military are vast. However, mainly he served as DG Military Operations and Chief of General Staff.

The Zarb e Azb was the largest and most successful military operation that freed Pakistan from terrorism. At the time of this operation, General Ashfaq Nadeem was appointed as director-general of military operations. The whole operation got successful under his command.
Also, he was a great wisher of Kashmir’s independence. However, his dream could not come true during his service. Upon retirement, he sighed that my biggest regret is that I could not see Kashmir’s liberation. May Allah SWT grant Gen Ashfaq Nadeem the highest rank in Jannah. Amen
