Romanian music artist Akcent (Adrian Sina) in his meeting with Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (DG ISPR) Asif Ghafoor was served with what he termed ‘fantastic tea’.

As controversy regarding military’s role in Pakistan increases, DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor has said that “marches and dharnas are a political activity and the Pakistan Army, as a state institution, has nothing to do with politics”.
