Default Pashtun Lieutenant Generals in Pakistan? - 03-09-2017, 04:54 PM

I've heard there are no Pashtun Lieutenant generals in the Pakistani Army. I have tried finding reliable sources for this but haven't been able to do so. Can someone help me out?

This is important to me as I'm trying to learn the true extent of anti-Pashtun discrimination in Pakistan and sift fact from fiction. So it would be nice if someone could help me with this.

There have been Pashtun lieutenant generals in the Pakistan army.Examples:
Lt Gen Imranullah Khan, Gen Abdul Waheed Kakar , Lt Gen Tariq Khan,Lt Gen Ali Kuli Khan,Lt Gen Habibullah Khattak(Ali Kuli's father) and others.

And even more Major Generals.

Gen Abdul Waheed Kakar served as COAS.
There are other Pashtun Lt Gens also ,I I haven't listed all of them.
And Major Generals are even more in number.

Thank you. But it seems to me that these are all former Lt. Generals. I want to know if there are still any today.

How can you tell none of them are Pashtun? It doesn't give their place of birth or ethnicity.

There are a lot of people with very generic surnames. Names like Aziz, Khan (obviously), Jamil, Ashraf, etc... how do you know what ethnicity they are?

There's also Hayat's, which is usually Pashtun, and someone called Sher Afgun.

Anyways, I'm not qualified to answer this question. Someone who knows better can take the spotlight.

There were many pashtun COAS and Lt.generals in Pak Army...Currently no body knows how many as ethnicity is not mentioned...Also Pak Army is not quota based government organization..FYI Pashtuns are second largest in pak army after punjabis...It would be much better if you open a thread about the conditions of pashtun in afghanistan...
