The spokesperson for the Pakistan Army has spoken strongly against the popular American Showtime series ‘Homeland’ whose latest season depicts Pakistan in a CIA-centred thriller.

The director-general for the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Major General Asim Bajwa, spoke at the defence think-tank, the Royal United Services Institute, in London on Thursday. He was addressing diplomats, defence analysts and heads of think-tanks.

Pakistani news channel Geo TV and its sister news publication, The News, reported Friday morning that Bajwa was answering a question when his opinion emerged:
“The Homeland series was nothing but slanderous and insulting to Pakistan[is] who are a great diverse nation and have rendered great sacrifices for peace and welfare of the world. An emotional General Bajwa said that he had personally lifted dead bodies of his comrades who had sacrificed their lives battling extremists.”

They quoted him as saying: “What was shown in Homeland has pained me personally and it has pained all of us as a nation as what was shown is not what we are. The Homeland series was a big lie because it failed to show real Pakistan, it showed Pakistan as if it were part of Afghanistan. It harmed relations between people and it (Homeland) went out of its way to harm Pakistan and its image.”
