Who is General Asim Munir
Infantryman Lt Gen Asim Munir topped the seniority list after Gen Bajwa.

In addition, it is said that he has memorized the entire Qur’an. Apart from Pakistan, he has also worked in Saudi Arabia. Some military insiders, however, warned that nominating him would lead to catastrophic political polarization in Pakistan’s politics.
