political events of 2007 led to the formation of Pakistan Ex Servicemen
Association. Musharaf’s act in Feb 2007 to remove Chief Justice of
Pakistan Mr Iftikhar Ahmed Choudary caused great upheaval and turmoil in
against this background that on 12 Jan 2008, a few senior retired
officers got together and decided to play their role to safeguard the
image of the Armed Forces, removal of Musharaf and the restoration of
the Judiciary to pre 03 Nov position. The Ex-servicemen held their first
seminar on 20th Jan 2008 at Hotel Shalimar which was attended by over
200 ex-servicemen and included several retired officers and veteran of
1965 war. Amongst the attendees were Air Mrshall Asghar Khan and Air
Marshal Noor Khan and many other retired personnel comprising all ranks.
In quick successions two more seminars were held. Simultaneously the
Ex-Servicemen supported the Lawyers movement and participated in the
long march in June 08.
