I REFER to “The army is apolitical” (The Star, Aug 19) with Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) Jen Zulkifeli Mohd Zin refuting claims by four ex-soldiers that they were ordered to cast postal votes for other army officers and their wives while they were in service.

The general went on to rebuke the public by saying “people need to show their support for the army’s role in the country, and asking, “How can we be loyal to you when you are disloyal to us”?
