Fantasies of General (R) Hamid Gul & Jamat-e-Islami.

 ISLAMABAD: Politicians belonging to different parties, retired army generals and members of civil society Monday created a non-political forum - Centre for Discussions and Solutions (CDS) - with ex-Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Qazi Hussain Ahmed as its convener to promote national thinking on national issues and the problems being faced by the country. The first meeting of the forum was held at the residence of Qazi Hussain Ahmed. Those who attended the meeting included four retired generals including ex-army chief General (retd) Aslam Baig, three ex-DGs ISI Lt. General (retd) Hamid Gul, Lt. General (retd) Asad Durrani and General (retd) Ehsanul Haq who also served as chairman joint chiefs of staff committee, former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, PML-Q leader Mushahid Hussain Sayed, JI senator Professor Khurshid Ahmed, PML-N leader Raja Zafarul Haq, Roedad Khan, JI secretary general Liaquat Baloch and others. “We have invited those retired army officers who in the past played a role in the formulation of political policies, politicians and members of civil society to create national thinking among people,” Qazi Hussain Hussain later told a press conference. He said in the very first meeting, the participants were unanimous that the rule of law was the basic need and a pre-requisite to pull the country out of the present crisis. “In this connection the participants of the meeting observed that the Supreme Court should be respected and its verdicts be implemented in letter and spirit,” he said. Qazi Hussain Ahmed said the participants also appealed to all political parties and masses to extend support to the apex court and respect its decisions. The meeting also called for an end to foreign interference in the internal affairs of the country and sought basic changes in the foreign policy. To a question, he said the forum would work above political and sectarian considerations, and safeguarding national interests and a strong Pakistan would be its top priority. Qazi said PPP leader Mian Raza Rabbani was also invited to the meeting but he could not come due to illness of his sister. To a question about any political motives and politics of ‘Dharna’ by the newly created forum, Qazi Hussain Ahmed maintained that there was no political agenda of CDS. To another question, the ex-JI amir said they might also invite MQM to attend the CDS meeting. Non-political forum formed to promote national thinking Muhammad Anis Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Note the somersaults in the statements! Qazi was inviting MQM and Inviting Army to impose Martial Law and Present Chief of Jamat-e-Islami "condemning MQM" and raising finger on the same Army that it is supporting a Corrupt Government.

One of the participant in the above meeting was General (R) Hamid Gul and now lets read what the History says!

Brigadier Retd. Imtiaz aka Billa - Former Number 2 of ISI - 1987 - 1989, and Director General Intelligence Bureau under Mian Nawaz Sharif's First Government - 1990 - 1993.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s former chief of intelligence Brig. Imtiaz Ahmed (Ret.) has strongly rebuffed the allegations of being the CIA and Israeli agent, which was leveled by Hamid Gul in his interview with Arab News on Sunday.

He alleged the statement made by Gul reflects his “intellectual and mental bankruptcy” and “innate shallowness.” “Those who know Gul inside out would bear me out, as they know that Gul is the embodiment of opportunism,” he added. “The history of my 17-year career in intelligence is testimony to the fact that I have always fought against the CIA, the Mossad, the RAW (India’s intelligence service), the KGB and other hostile intelligence outfits, at the risk to my life, to defend the sovereignty of my country.” SOURCE: Pakistan’s ex-spy chief rebuffs Gul’s remarks Azhar Masood I Arab News Tuesday 28 July 2009 (30, Shaban, 1430) Imtiaz vowed to uncover the misdeeds and dreadful professional failure of Gul in the near future. “Gul has forgotten that he begged for a higher position from many rulers including Pervez Musharraf in the past. SOURCE: Pakistan’s ex-spy chief rebuffs Gul’s remarks by Azhar Masood I Arab News Tuesday 28 July 2009 (30, Shaban, 1430) I also remind Gul about his dirty role played in the past to create serious misgivings between the then Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and Farooq Leghari, who was then the president.” SOURCE: Pakistan’s ex-spy chief rebuffs Gul’s remarks by Azhar Masood I Arab News Tuesday 28 July 2009 (30, Shaban, 1430)

A letter from an MQM minion, Kunwar Khalid Yunus, was printed in this newspaper on August 15 in which he admitted “that Gen Beg’s one sidekick also reached Mr Altaf Hussain’s residence of Azizabad with one suitcase full of currency notes. Mr Hussain refused to accept it. After a few months, when Mr Hussain met Mr Beg [at] a function in Lahore, the former cynically asked if his expensive suitcase reached him safely. The latter sheepishly nodded.” Will Mr Yunus file an affidavit in court? Lastly, may I again appeal to Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to take up this pending matter and let us have a decision before the next round of ‘fair and free’ elections. If press reports of August 17 are to be believed, President General Pervez Musharraf has clearly stated that he would be re-elected “at any cost” – at the cost of whose life and whose money?

General Beg & Hamid Gul Tried to Bribe Altaf Hussain (ARY NEWS 2009)

Altaf Hussain (MQM) Oppose Division of Sindh but Jang Group "SUPPORTS DIVISION" - 1


LONDON, Jan 24: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain has claimed that former army chief Gen Aslam Beg had also tried to bribe the MQM like other political parties of the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) during the general election, but he had turned down the offer because it was against the ideology and principles of his party. In a press statement issued here on Monday, the MQM chief said Gen Beg had sent an brigadier with a briefcase containing money to bribe the organization during the election but he had told the brigadier that the MQM would not accept it as it was against its principles and ideology. He said the brigadier had come in the presence of MQM's central executive committee members and they were witness to the event. Gen Beg had CONFESSED that the ISI had distributed Rs140 million among the component parties of the IJI, including the PML, ANP and JI for defeating the PPP in the general election when he was the army chief. The general's public confession had created an uproar and forced TI chief Asghar Khan to file a petition in the Supreme Court to investigate the ISI's role in manipulating those elections and its role in national politics. That petition is still pending before the apex court. REFERENCE: Altaf accuses Beg of trying to bribe MQM DAWN/The News International, KARACHI 25 January 2000, Tuesday, 17 Shawwal 1420

The MQM chief said that later when he met army chief Gen Beg in Rawalpindi at the latter's residence, he told Mr Beg that the MQM had not accepted the money. Mr Hussain said he had deliberately informed the general about the MQM's refusal to accept the bribe just to ensure that this money was not misappropriated by the intermediary. He said Gen Beg had told him that he was in the knowledge that the MQM had not accepted the money. He said this was not the only occasion when the ISI had tried to bribe the MQM. It had made several attempts even earlier to purchase the MQM but had failed, he said. He said the only reason why he was forced to leave the country was that he had refused to compromise his resolve, philosophy and ideology. "Had I also compromised or traded my conscience like Nawaz Sharif and other politicians (who had accepted ISI funds), I would have owned large industries in Pakistan and would not have been forced to live in exile, nor any direct or indirect army operation would have been carried out against his party," he said.

Mr Hussain criticized the army for its involvement in politics and claimed that the army generals were also corrupt like politicians. He questioned why every general was allotted a huge residential plot. The MQM chief said he would soon tell the nation about the misconduct and misdeeds of Gen Asif Nawaz (late), Gen Abdul Waheed Kakar, Gen Jehangir Karamat, former chief of ISI Gen Hameed Gul, former ISI chief Gen Asad Durrani and others, whose names and misdeeds had not came out in the open because they were not Mohajirs. "The judiciary, military, bureaucracy and politicians of the country have failed," he said. "We have fought three wars with India and despite losing every time we are spending a huge portion of the country's budget on defence," he said mentioning that defence budget still was treated as a sacred cow and not audited. He said one reason for denying the people their role in the government was the feudal mentality of the ruling oligarchy. The army is different to some extent as it comes from the common class but a stage comes when the senior ranks of the army join hands with these feudals or forced to do that.

HAMID GUL on Wiki Leaks


Former ISI Chief, Hamid Gul Responds to WikiLeaks [Hamid Gul also "Loves" USA]


WikiLeaks: A tool of psy warfare

Published: December 5, 2010
General Mirza Aslam Beg

The WikiLeaks revelations confirm the obvious, more than what it informs us about the darker corners of “US diplomacy, cloaked in securitocracy.” In fact, it is a cyber war, in the new game of psychological warfare (PSYWAR), targeting individuals and countries to cover up the shame of defeat of the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, and also the 2006 Israeli war on Lebanon. A cyber war has been launched, impacting public opinion globally, and focusing on three objectives:

One, to cause defamation of the countries that had a role - direct or indirect - in the defeat of the US and its allies in Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan, and thus to create mistrust amongst them, so that they are not able to challenge Washington’s future plans in the region.
Two, to create conditions for a civil war in Afghanistan, and through this reduce Pakistan and Iran to subservience - something they have not been able to achieve since the last 30 years.
Three, to establish Indian hegemony over South Asia, including Afghanistan, in order to protect USA’s strategic interests in the region.
The technique used in making these revelations is typical of psy operations approach, of mixing truth with lies in a manner that the truth gets submerged under the lies, as is in the case of the leaked documents. The report has not said a word about Israel, nor does it give any disadvantage to the US in the implementation of its policies in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and other Muslim countries, which have been particularly targeted. WikiLeaks betrays the role of a country with resources to break the secret code of the US diplomatic order, because it is not possible for an individual like Julian Assange - the fugitive - to accomplish such high profile task. The disclosures, no doubt, have created ripples around the world, but will subside as it is looked into with a deeper perspective, about its source, intent and purpose. The US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, expressed concern over the WikiLeaks revelations and resolved to prevent such happenings in the future. But the question is, did she not know what the WikiLeaks were up to, and why could they not be stopped in time and the website blocked? It could be checked, but if the US government so wanted, however, did not because they are part of the game. Over the period, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have drawn closer to each other; Turkey is also looking east and a kind of strategic consensus is emerging. Then the multibillion dollar gas pipeline agreement has been signed with Iran, although Pakistan does not have enough funds for the project; in addition, China is also willing to support its time-tested friend in the project.

Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan on Wednesday night angrily hit out at the retired generals who this week said that they no longer had confidence in him, remarks that fueled western speculation that the president is losing the support of the army. “They are insignificant personalities,” the president told the Financial Times in an interview on his arrival at the Davos World Economic Forum. “Most of them are ones who served under me and I kicked them out ... They are insignificant. I am not even bothered by them.” Musharraf hits out at retired generals By James Blitz, Gideon Rachman and Martin Dickson in Davos Published: January 24 2008 05:58 Last updated: January 24 2008 05:58

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, 1 June 2008 (The Post) – The [Pakistan] Ex- Servicemen Society, a group of retired Army generals and some former Army chiefs, has demanded an open trial of [Traitor] Pervez Musharraf under Article 6 of the Constitution and announced that they would join the long march if he (illegal president) did not resign before June 10, 2008. The Article 6 was added into the Constitution upon recommendation of one of the Members of Justice Hamood-ur-Rehman Commission, Justice Yaqoob Ali, according to which the abrogator of the Constitution must be tried for high treason and sentenced to death.

ISLAMABAD: Former chief of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt-Gen (retd) Hameed Gul on Saturday disclosed that the PPP could have got landslide victory in 1988 elections, if the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) had not been formed. Talking to a private TV channel, he said: ìYes, we had such reports and apprehension of massive PPP victory.î Gul said they feared that the PPP was returning to power after the execution of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. I take the responsibility of forming the IJI, though it was not my idea,î Hameed Gul said. He said that even during Benazir Bhutto’s first visit to the ISI headquarters he told her about his role in forming the IJI. “We wanted the PPP opponents who had affiliation with the GHQ to unite them on one platform,” Gul said. He said ‘emergency’ was one of the options in 1988 after General Zia ul Haq’s plane crashed, but it was decided to go ahead with November 16 election despite request from opponents of the PPP to postpone it. He disclosed that even former Soviet Union sent a message to Pakistan that the 1988 elections could be sabotaged. Gul said: “This is for the first time I am disclosing that former Russian president Mikhail Gorbachev sent his envoy with a message regarding apprehensions of sabotaging the 1988 election through foreign intervention.”

He said he was not aware of the conditions to hand over power to former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, but said he was asked to brief her before she was handed over the power. “Benazir wanted a briefing from the Establishment so I was sent for this purpose and the meeting took place at her friend’s house in Karachi, which lasted over two hours, and I told her that the Afghan Jihad had not ended yet. There were two or three other things, which I briefed her and she said she understood the situation,” he said. He denied “Midnight Jackal” as intelligence plot and said it was Imtiaz’s personal plan. “No agency was involved but Imtiaz himself,” Gul said. The ex-ISI chief denied he ever sent a message to MQM chief Altaf Hussain to join IJI and rejected the allegation of former Intelligence Bureau director, Brig (retd) Imtiaz. “I never sent Imtiaz to Altaf with a message to join IJI but to express concern over allegations of collection of ìBhattaî by some elements,” he said. He predicted the victory of Afghans in Afghanistan and the US exit, but expressed concern over post-US Afghanistan situation and said a weak government was going to be set up there. “We failed to give up political system in Afghanistan after Soviet Union left and now I don’t see much will happen after the US exit, but Afghans will win,” he added.
