From Relevance of Munir Report on 1953 Riots For Today’s Pakistan (pdf file) by Javaid Aslam:
“The brief period of Martial Law gave the Army a valuable experience of performing the duties of civil government. It also created an impression in the minds of the public that the Army could restore peace and effective government when all other devices had failed.
(by Hasan Askari Rizvi)
Daily Dawn commented:
“……….. Memories of the Army rule in Lahore will linger for a long time to come and the new look that Lahore has acquired and the sense of discipline among its people inculcated by the Army will bear eloquent testimony to the good work done by the Major-General Azam Khan and his men.”
How many times will this be repeated until we learn.
