A fine rumor from inside the PMA suggests that the shooting of Ehd-e-Wafa was not conducted while most cadets were present at the academy.

10. The show portrays how PMA strengthens cadets not just physically, but psychologically as well
Another alleviating fact about Ehd-e-Wafa is the PMA’s role in a cadet’s life. The scene where one cadet’s performance declined due to his family troubles, was the epitome of PMA’s care. The authorities in the show invited the cadet’s family to PMA and resolved their differences, so it does not affect their child’s work ethic and performance. This affection for officers in the army is a step that is being adored by the general public. Furthermore, a currently serving officer in the Pakistan Army confirmed this fact that PMA does look into the cadet’s family issues and always tries to resolve them so they are not affected mentally.
