What are the seven challenges Pakistan is facing that the new army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, could help deal with?

Here’s my list, in seven tweets.

1 Domestic terrorism

2 Terrorism hindering FDI

3 Entanglement with neighbours

4 Pakistani passport 2nd worst for international travel in Visa Index

5 Politically fragile climate

6 Extremism/group violence in all shades

7 Photoshop becoming national art, Whatsapp national medium

This is not an exhaustive list.

At places, you may need to involve energies from civilian governments. On other occasions, a mere executive decision may do.
