Pakistan issues démarche to Canada over MP’s remarks against COAS Bajwa


To condemn Canadian MP Tom Kmiec’s “irresponsible and undiplomatic” comments on Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa, the Foreign Office summoned Canada’s high commissioner to Pakistan.

Islamabad sent a strong démarche to the Canadian high commissioner after lodged a strong diplomatic objection with Ottawa.

Tom Kmiec, a Canadian member of parliament, recently made a speech about Pakistan that was deemed to be both highly irresponsible and against diplomatic protocol, according to sources.

Tom Kmiec represents Calgary Shepard in the House of Commons as a member of parliament for Canada. He was the previous leader of the national conservative caucus in the 43rd Parliament and has sat on the finance and foreign affairs committees.

He is charged with advocating for organizations opposed to the nation of Pakistan.

Tom Kmiec, a member of the Conservative Party of Canada, made some serious accusations against COAS Gen. Bajwa while speaking in the lower house of the Canadian Parliament. He also criticized his government for approving the cost of COAS Bajwa’s reception, which was paid for with Canadian taxpayer money.

The COAS was scheduled to travel to Canada in 2020, but his trip was later postponed because to COVID-19. He recounted how the Assistant Deputy Defense Minister had deemed the funding to be “acceptable” for COAS Qamar Bajwa’s visit. Bajwa is charged with overthrowing two civil administrations, Kmiec stated.

Aside from having ties to terrorist organizations, the military under his command is also accused of extradition executions and violating human rights. He enquired as to whether the Defense Ministry still holds that perspective.

The $50,000 allocated for the reception of Pakistan’s Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa, according to Parliamentary Secretary of the Canadian Defense Ministry Bryan May, was deemed “inappropriate.”
