GENERAL YAHYA KHAN
(The portion of his first speech, when he came in to power)
“Fellow countrymen, I wish to make it absolutely clear to you that I have no ambition other than the creation of conditions conducive to the establishment of constitutional government. The Armed Forces belong to the people. They have no political ambitions, and will not prop up any individual or party. At the same time, I wish to make it equally clear that we have every intention of completing the mission that we've embarked upon the nation’s satisfaction”
“We are passing through the most fateful period of our history. The recent events have dealt a serious blow to our nation prestige and progress. The Material Law Administration cannot and will not tolerate imitational and destructive activities of any kind”.
