I am a recently retired military officer. Hold on. There is
something more to that, you might be interested in. You do not like to

The organizations like ISPR were either ignorant or not ready to come face to face with changing environment. This can be confirmed with little effort. I succeeded in getting a website ready for launch after clearance from security agencies and fearful bosses who could not think of anything else than few newspaper clippings and some TV/radio recordings as their bread and butter. posted to ISPR Directorate permanently. here I am with somewhat unique service pattern. if you are really looking for a Media Manager. The experience I gained is matchless. The more I got closer. Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee and was so. Karachi Municipal Corporation (KMC) and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA). all-encompassing from base upward and today the situation is quite different. Why I consider myself as most suited candidate for desired job will cost you few more minutes. In 2008. Media management was though not the core charter of my duties there but was a sure part in a wider spectrum. The boss from Signals was even a novice in computer world. I have a very broad base of expertise in handling multiple large organizations like Karachi Development Authority (KDA). Public opinion about Pakistan Armed Forces and particularly Chief of Army Staff was extremely bad. I got the site inaugurated by Chairman. those five years are a glowing land mark in my life. No more details can be given or will be shared due to obvious security concerns but needless to say.miss a chance to have an experienced and mature professional for your organization? Do you? Well. In an ‘Iron-curtain environment’. it was really difficult to convince the old lot to open up a bit while maintaining complete grip over security related issues. I have served and contributed well as Assistant Director – Cyber Division – Inter Services Public Relations Directorate (ISPR) – Pakistan Armed Forces for over five years. Cyber Force in Armed Forces was still in infancy. I am sure that it would not be in vain. However. not common for 99 % other military officers. . The Whole Truth My addiction to computers since 1989 did not go unnoticed by my senior officers and a number of them recommended me for employment in organizations like Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Inter-Services Public Relations Directorate (ISPR) in Pakistan Armed Forces. We did create a cyber force. In addition to that. It was a fight till death in the face of old aristocratic red tape … but we triumphed in the end. Trench. the more I got impatient. The contributions I made are a source of satisfaction for me. shovel and barbed wire was all that they could think off. In spite of ‘Arab Spring’ and other rapid changes in Modern Age Media. I was entrusted with mammoth task of preparing and launching an official website for Pakistan Army. I was posted to ISPR Directorate in General Headquarters (GHQ) at Rawalpindi for a trial period of three months. I was further posted internally in newly formed Cyber Division. The Division was mostly in name only with no obvious guidelines and setup except an officer from Signals Corps and few of other ranks.
