conscription does not exist

Conscription has never existed in Pakistan.

The 1952 Pakistan Army Act does provide for the possible introduction of compulsory military service in times of emergency, but this has never been contemplated by the authorities. Voluntary applications to join the armed forces are usually sufficient to achieve the requisite number of recruits. [2]
