General Raheel Sharif is by far the most popular and trusted army official of Pakistan. Born in Quetta to a Rajput family Raheel Sharif is the son of (late) Major Rana Muhammad Sharif, who hailed from a town in Gujrat, Kunjah. He possesses exemplary bravery and courage due to his strong army background which includes two recipients of Nishan-e-Haider. One his eldest brother Major Rana Shabbir Sharif, a martyr of Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. Second his maternal uncle Major Raja Aziz Bhatti, a martyr of Indo-Pakistani War of 1965.
Upon becoming the 15th Chief of Army Staff, he already had an unyielding agenda to strengthen Pakistan while cornering and eliminating terrorism in the country. His close aides see him as the toughest and strongest of the Army chiefs that have served Pakistan. In 2015, rumours started to pour in that he will extend his tenure as the Chief of Army Staff but he was quick to put them aside by stating that he will retire as per plan in November 2016 and also that he has no interest in the political ecosphere of Pakistan. Since taking up the office on November 29, 2013, General Raheel Sharif has achieved some of the most significant accomplishments that earned him the title of the most powerful Army Chief in the world.
