Profile Profile
General Raheel Sharif (born 28 June 1956), NI(M), HI(M), is a four-star rank army general and the current (15th) Chief of Army Staff of the Pakistan Army, in office since 2013.

Early life and family

General Raheel Sharif was born in Quetta. He belongs to a Rajput family with roots in Punjab (in the town of Kunjah, Gujrat). He has a prominent military background, He is son of (late) Major Rana Muhammad Sharif. His eldest brother Major Shabbir Sharif, was declared as the martyr of Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 by Pakistan and received Pakistan's highest military award Nishan-e-Haider posthumously. He is the youngest sibling among three brothers and two sisters. His other brother, Captain Mumtaz Sharif also bravely served in Pakistan army and for his bravery he was awarded SITARA-E- BASALAT, but got an early retirement due to medical reasons. From his mother's side, he is nephew of Major Raja Aziz Bhatti, another Nishan-e-Haider recipient, who was declared as the martyr of Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 by Pakistan. He is married and has three children, two sons and a daughter. He is an avid reader and enjoys hunting and swimming.

Military service

Sharif received his formal education from the Government College in Lahore and afterward attended the 54th long course (L/C) of Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) . After his passing out in October 1976, he was commissioned into the 6th Battalion of the Frontier Force Regiment, where his elder brother had also served. He served as an adjutant to the Pakistan Military Academy and joined an infantry brigade in Gilgit. As a brigadier, he commanded two infantry brigades. In 2002, he was also appointed as Military Secretary by then Chief of Army Staff General Pervez Musharraf succeeding Nadeem Taj, who later served as director general ISI.

In time, he was assigned command of the 11th Infantry Division in Lahore by General Pervez Musharraf. After commanding the division for over 2 years, he was posted as Commandant of the Pakistan Military Academy, Kakul. Following his promotion to Lieutenant General, Sharif served as a corps commander Gujranwala for two years and then took over as Inspector General for Training and Evaluation in the Pakistan Army. As the Inspector General for Training and Evaluation, he enhanced the military colleges in the country and provided unconventional warfare training to the troops. He also deals with the evaluation of military doctrines and war strategies with a view to shaping future training programs. He changed the army's focus more towards carrying out counter-insurgency operations against Taliban militants. In a matter of 1.5 years he has turned around the security situation in the whole country which is now fully moving in the right and positive direction.

Sharif has played an important role in convincing other senior officers in the army that the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and assorted militants inside Pakistan are as much of a threat as India. However, Sharif stressed that all possible threats will be dealt with accordingly, be it internally or externally.

General Raheel has the honour of being one of the most respected and well reputed Chief of the Pakistan Army and he has in a matter of less than 2 years, done for the country what couldn't be done in the previous 8–10 years. The nation today stands united behind him to curb the menace of terrorism from Pakistan across the board.

Chief of Army Staff

On 27 November 2013, Sharif was appointed as the 15th Chief of Army Staff of the Pakistan Army by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. According to sources, General Sharif is said to be uninterested in politics with very positive and balanced views. But he was elevated over two more senior generals. Lieutenant General Haroon Aslam, a senior general, resigned over Sharif's elevation. The other more-senior general, Rashad Mahmood was appointed as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee. The News reported that General Aslam may have been superseded because of his action in the 1999 coup.

In 2013, Sharif was conferred with Nishan-e-Imtiaz (military). Raheel Sharif will retire as Chief of Army Staff (Pakistan) on November 2016.

According to The Economist, "Unlike his predecessors, General Sharif appears to see jihadists, principally in the form of Pakistan’s own Taliban, as the country’s greatest threat, and is credited to have initiated the successful joint operation of Zarb-e-Azab"

He has to face the external,internal pressures from every side.I pray THE ALMIGHTY GOD,TO PROVIDE STRENGTH TO GENERAL RAHEEL TO BUILD ALL THE FLANKS OF OUR ARM FORCES TO PROTECT OUR BOUNDARIES AGAINST ALL THE THREATS FROM Big ENEMIES like INDIA,Afghanistan,Russia,Talibans, corrupt NAWAZ and zardarri 10 percent.To me, he is the person, who can bring peace and stability in the country.A common man/poor Nation does not require a House of senate,Provincial or National Assemblies or a Dummy president or a corrupt prime minister.First task before him should be to raise the arm ,air and sea forces and second step should be to equip the forces with most modern equipment.Must have excellent relations with china,Kingdom of saudi Arabia,UAE,USA,UK,France,Germany,Turkey, Malaysia,Indonesia,Japan Korea etc.

Please Point to be noted Sir.....
In Pakistan the Chief of Army Staff Designation hold on a Person as Full General (4 Star) rather then Lt.Gen (3 Star) is junior Rank as compare General....
General Raheel Sharif is a Full General (4 Star) and designated as Chief of Army Staff.
In your profile mentioned line as copying as it is here ( 15th Chief of Army Staff of Pakistan Army (as four-star / Lt General)).....
Please Correct it....
Thanks & Regards,
