He also clarified that the organizations are “neither recognized nor authorized, on behalf of the armed forces, to engage in such activities”. He added that “ex-military companies” “unlawfully claim association with the armed forces or implements.”

The same is available from Ministry of Defence, Government Office of Pakistan for future consultation/guidance,” the ministry said. He also warned that any organization or person “not adhering to policy guidelines” will face “criminal consequences”.
