The speed with which Pakistani politicians passed the bill extending Gen Bajwa's tenure is alarming for a nation that has a history of military coups.

Pakistan Army, anguished by Musharraf's death sentence, says he can never be a traitor because he served the country for 40 years and fought two wars.
The verdict’s implementation in all likelihood won’t happen. But the fact that Pakistan's judicial system came this far does not go in favour of Army Chief Bajwa.
