Syed Sarwar Munir Shah, Asim Munir’s father, was the headmaster of the FG Technical High School in Lalkurti, Rawalpindi. As of this writing, no information on Asim Munir’s mother is accessible. Asim Munir is a member of Pakistan’s Syed family.
The incoming army leader attended the Fuji School in Japan, the Command and Staff College in Quetta, the Malaysian Armed Forces College in Kuala Lumpur, and the National Defence University in Islamabad. He also has an MPhil from the National Defense University in Public Policy and Strategic Security Management. Following completion of his formal education rise, Asim Munir participated in the 17 Officers Training course at the Officers Training School (OTS) in Mangla. General Asim Munir became Pakistan’s 17th Chief of Army Staff (COAS) on November 29, 2022. He is also a Quran Hafiz. Asim Munir was 38 years old when he completed the Quran.
Lieutenant General Munir, who previously served as Pakistan’s spy head and COAS, will follow General Qamar Javed Bajwa, who will stand down at the end of this month after serving as COAS for six years.
Lt. Gen. Asim Munir will be the most experienced candidate for CJCSC and COAS. Despite receiving a two-star overall promotion in September 2018, he didn’t get the job until two months later. His four-year stint as a lieutenant general would expire on November 27th, when the present CJCSC and COAS remove their military uniforms.
As the suggestions and choices for the appointment of the two four-star generals are made earlier, General Bajwa will determine whether to add his name, and the Prime Minister will make the ultimate decision. He’s an excellent commander, but given the circumstances, he may be the typical dark horse.
Lieutenant General Munir joined the Army and was assigned to the Border Force Regiment after finishing the Officer Training School (OTS) programme at Mangla. Since serving as a brigade commander in the Northern Areas of Force Charge under General Bajwa, who was then in command of X Corps, he has been a close acquaintance of the present COAS. In early 2017, he was appointed DG of Military Intelligence, then in October of same year, he was named Head of ISI.
However, his term as a top intelligence officer was the shortest in history, with Lieutenant General Faiz Hamid replacing him after just eight months at the request of then-Prime Minister Imran Khan. He was appointed Commander of the Gujranwala Corps for two years before transferring to GHQ as Quartermaster General.
