The real story- by Peja Mistri

ISI routinely hires Pakistan’s right wing journalists to feed the stories in order to improve the image of military mafia. Such stories are usually very abstract and are written by the ISPR  ”master minds” in such  a way which ( in their “wisdom”) will leave a better impression of the current Don (COAS) and his cronies.

It is pertinent to note that during the era of mad dictator one good thing that happened in Pakistan was that the military mafia in Pakistan faced an internal rift , unfortunately though it was not the rift between good and bad , instead it was the rift between the two factions of mafia fighting for the power.

Due to the nature of “War on Terrorism” , Pakistan’s military had to “sell their mothers” (as American’s call it) , in order to save their skins. Hence they (Military) had to fight against their own progenies i.e. the mullahs. This resulted in a natural rift between the two factions in the military.

It is usually very hard to identify the real loyalties of Pakistan’s military generals (and indeed they usually don’t have any loyalties except to their own’s self). However there are at times visible clashes between the two factions.

If we look back to the period ‘between’ 2006-2009, it now becomes very clear that the faction led by the current Don (Ashfaq Pervez Kiyani) successfully defeated the other faction led by the mad dictator (General Musharraf). Today I was reading the story by an ISI news reporter in “The News” which makes thing very clear.  However as I said this story is encrypted it in such a way that we need to use the correct cipher to decipher the message in this story.

So let me first put here some facts related to this story, before I go on and explain the story.

a) DGMO: The DGMO or the MO Directorate referred here in this story is no other than “Ashfaq Pervez Kayani” who was DGMO ‘between’ 2003 – 2006.

b) Tariq Majeed (Aka Chemical Tariq) : General Tariq Majeed retired as Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff on 7th October 2010  and you can now understand why this story is fed now, and was not fed before his retirement. Tariq Majeed as also described in this story belonged to mad dictator’s faction in the army.

c) The Commander of 12th Corps:  It was Lt. General Hamid Rab Nawaz who was the commander of 12th corps during 2004-2007.

d) Maj. General Nadeem Ejaz: Well he was the trusted friend of mad dictator and he is in the dock for many crimes. There is a great chance that he might be made as the first “scapegoat” (if it ever happened) for all the crimes of Army. I am really interested to find out why? (Any one knows more about the reasons?)

e) “Some Key Generals”: This is the terms used in the story to refer to the other faction in the military mafia led by Ashfaq Kiyani. These include Khalid Shameem, Salauddin Satti and perhaps few major generals like Ahmad Shuja (Current DG ISI) and Naushad Kiyani (current DG MI) and last but not the least Lt. General Nadeem Taj.

f) “The GHQ” : The term GHQ here is being used in this story to refer to Ashfaq Kiyani, who was the VCOAS in 2007 and was sitting in “The GHQ”.

g) “key GHQ adviser” : Again this refers to Ashfaq Kiyani.

h) Well placed and well informed sources: This refers to ISPR in the story.

Please note that as far as the substance of this story is concerned, it is nothing but falsehood in every aspect. Though there were differences between the two factions of the mafia , however they had nothing to do with anything described in this story , Chemical Tariq or Ashfaq Kiyani or the mad dictator no one had any difference of opinion on any of the operations like killing of Bugti or Lal Masjid. The differences as one can guess were more of the nature that usually happen in two mafia factions (i.e. to get the full power).

Now let us read the story:

While Musharraf continues to embarrass Pakistan and its authorities, including the Pakistan Army, an important source has revealed that the General Headquarters (GHQ) and its most vital arm, the Military Operations Directorate, was bypassed by the former dictator, both in the Lal Masjid operation and Bugti killing.

The source said that none of these extremely controversial operations, which sowed the seeds of terrorism in Balochistan and the rest of the country, were the brainchild of the MO Directorate.

The source said that in both these military operations, the GHQ and concerned field command were not directly involved. “In both the cases, General Musharraf bypassed the GHQ and its MO Directorate, and gave direct orders to the relevant field commanders,” said the well-placed and well- informed source.
Ideally and as per the military’s established rules, no such operation could take place without being conceptualised and cleared by the MO Directorate. However, Musharraf, the all powerful dictator that he was, did not engage the MO Directorate.

In the case of Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti’s killing, the source said, General Musharraf involved the then Military Intelligence chief Major General Nadeem Ejaz and the top command of 12 Corps.

In a briefing on Balochistan issue by the then DGMO and much before the killing of the Baloch Nawab, General Musharraf once talked about the idea of killing Bugti but the idea was not agreed to by the DGMO, who warned that it would lead to unrest. Later, Musharraf never engaged the GHQ and executed his plot to kill Bugti through the MI and the Commander of the 12 Corps.

After the Bugti killing, some key generals in the GHQ in their in-house interactions expressed their dismay over the Kohlu military operation. The Lal Masjid operation, which killed over a hundred persons and led to the escalation of terrorism cases manifold, was no different from that of the military operation aimed at killing Bugti.
The source said that the planning of the Lal Masjid operation was done by Commander 10 Corps Tariq Majid on the direct instructions of the ousted dictator.
The GHQ and its MO Directorate were not involved in any such planning,” the source said, adding that a day after Lieutenant Colonel Haroon became the first casualty of the pre-Lal Masjid operation, Musharraf convened a meeting of top political and military authorities and given his mind that a full-fledged operation had to be carried out.

An important member of the GHQ spoke against this option and asked Musharraf to review his decision because it involved the lives of more than 100 persons. The dictator was told that when the military was taught to leave some exit point even in case of its enemy, then why should not the extremist elements holed up in Lal Masjid. Musharraf was also warned that if the Lal Masjid operation was executed, it would throw the country into a muddle for quarter of a century.

Instead of listening to his key GHQ adviser, the source said Musharraf snubbed the officer and asked him to mind his own business. Later, the assignment to do the massacre in Lal Masjid was given to 10 Corps without getting the military operation cleared by the GHQ.

It has also been revealed that Musharraf wanted to mislead the masses about the number of casualties by burying the dead unannounced and in unknown places. He was of the view that the CDA authorities would do the task of silent and hidden burial of those killed in the Lal Masjid operation.

Musharraf, who has recently formally joined politics, has lately said that if given the chance, he would repeat the Lal Masjid and Bugti operations. These two operations brought enormous disrespect for the Army and caused retaliatory attacks against the military personnel and installations in all parts of the country.
The first-ever suicide attack in a military unit in Dargai where dozens of soldiers were killed in 2006, was also the consequence of Musharraf’s announcement owning the American missile attack on a Madrassa in Bajaur where more than 80 children were killed.

Under pressure from his American masters, whom he served against the interest of Pakistan, Musharraf said that they were not the American forces but the Pakistan Army, which attacked and killed such a large number of children, including the age of 10. Musharraf lied that they were terrorists but not even a single bullet was found from the rubble of the Madrassa.

Many in the military today admit that the post 9/11 policies and Musharraf’s controversial decisions like the Lal Masjid operation, killing of Bugti and owning up of Bajaur massacre not only fuelled extremism and terrorism but made the military controversial.

Let us read this after applying the cipher:

While Musharraf continues to embarrass Pakistan and its authorities, including the Pakistan Army, an important source has revealed that Ashfaq Pervez Kiyani (in 2007 as VCOAS) and Ashfaq Kiyani in 2004 (as DG MO), was bypassed by the former dictator, both in the Lal Masjid operation and Bugti killing.
The source said that none of these extremely controversial operations, which sowed the seeds of terrorism in Balochistan and the rest of the country, were the brainchild of Ashfaq Kiyani.

The source said that in both these military operations, Ashfaq Pervez Kiyani and his cronies were not directly involved. “In both the cases, General Musharraf bypassed Ashfaq Kiyani, and gave direct orders to the relevant field commanders,” said the ISPR.

Ideally and as per the military’s established rules, no such operation could take place without being conceptualised and cleared by Ashfaq Kiyani. However, Musharraf, the all powerful dictator that he was, did not engage Ashfaq Kiyani.

In the case of Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti’s killing, the source said, General Musharraf involved the then Military Intelligence chief Major General Nadeem Ejaz and Lt. General Hamid Rab Nawaz.

In a briefing on Balochistan issue by Ashfaq Kiyani (in 2004) and much before the killing of the Baloch Nawab, General Musharraf once talked about the idea of killing Bugti but the idea was not agreed to by Ashfaq Kiyani, who warned that it would lead to unrest. Later, Musharraf never engaged Ashfaq Kiyani and his cronies and executed his plot to kill Bugti through Nadeem Ijaz and Chemical Tariq.

After the Bugti killing, Ashfaq Kiyani and his cronies in the GHQ in their in-house interactions expressed their dismay over the Kohlu military operation. The Lal Masjid operation, which killed over a hundred persons and led to the escalation of terrorism cases manifold, was no different from that of the military operation aimed at killing Bugti.

The source said that the planning of the Lal Masjid operation was done by Chemical Tariq Majid on the direct instructions of the ousted dictator.
“Ashfaq Kiyani and his cronies were not involved in any such planning,” the source said, adding that a day after Lieutenant Colonel Haroon became the first casualty of the pre-Lal Masjid operation, Musharraf convened a meeting of top political and military authorities and given his mind that a full-fledged operation had to be carried out.

Many in the military today admit that the post 9/11 policies and Musharraf’s controversial decisions like the Lal Masjid operation, killing of Bugti and owning up of Bajaur massacre not only fuelled extremism and terrorism but made the military controversial.

Again as I said the story does not at all mean that the current Don (Ashfaq Kiyani) and his cronies had any differences with the mad dictator and his cronies (Chemical Tariq, Nadeem Ejaz etc..) over killing of Bugti or Lal Masjid Operation. However this story clearly identifies the members of the two factions. In fact only the member of Mad dictator’s faction which was defeated by the current Don’s faction.

There are some other interesting points in this story which reflects the working of mafia. For example the name of Lt. General Hamid Rab Nawaz is no clearly mentioned, like the name of Chemical Tariq and Nadeem Ejaz. I am not sure what Hamid Rab Nawaz is doing these days he is perhaps MD Fauji Fertilizer.

Similarly the story was published only after the retirement of Chemical Tariq as the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff on 8th October. When he was sitting general it was perhaps not possible to publish such a story.
Moreover it is not really clear who the story is addressed to (apart from the public consumption). It seems that there might be still be significant internal rift between the two factions.

  • Interesting analysis, peja. So, the takeaway from your article is:

    “Though there were differences between the two factions of the mafia (army generals) , they had nothing to do with anything described in the story in daily The News, General Kiyani and General Musharraf had no differences on any of the operations like killing of Bugti or Lal Masjid. The differences as one can guess were more of the nature that usually happen in two mafia factions (i.e. to get the full power).”

    I tend to agree with your analysis.

    I would like to contextualise and interlink your analysis with the following article by Dr Ayesha Siddiqa: What is the ideology of Pakistan’s military?

    http://criticalppp.com/archives/1435

    Dr Siddiqa suggests that Pakistan army (i.e., its generals) have a pragmatist-nationalist character. They will use religion or secularism or any other ideology and strategy as would best suit them and their institution in a given context.

  • These are all bastards. They is no good or bad person among them. They are all the same. If this Don was have differences with the Mad Dictator then why he did not resign??? This is just cheap publicity for this new Don. Even Mad Dictator was also praised when he was in power and uniform. He was occupying very important positions when Mad dictator was selling the mothers and sisters of Pakistan to Americans. These parasites are sucking the blood of poor Pakistanis and blaming the poor elected government for corruption. This ISI fed journalist does not dare to say a word about the 25 % increase in the defense budget.

  • @Abdul
    To me the “pragmatist nationalist” approach in simple terms is self-perpetuation and holding on to the power by using ANY means.
    Although it is true that they (i.e. the generals) can adopt any ideology or strategy, yet it was/is not straightforward for them to completely divorce the religious fanaticism that they used to inspire not only the lower cadre in army but also the youth of Pakistan. That is why we see in the internal friction among the generals of Military.
    The generals would love to keep double crossing both Americans and the “Talibans (amongst them)”. But the problem is in this double cross game they need to kill their own people. In the absence of any ideological foundation (like they had in 80’s) , it is very hard for the lower cadre to continue fighting and killing their own people. That’s why you will hear the phrases like “پرائی جنگ”.
    On the other hand the “Taliban (amongst them)” , particularly the ones in lower cadre, find a religious obligation to fight against the infidels even if it is mad dictator and his cronies.
    You might have noticed that since mad dictator has left the direct attacks against the ISI and the higher cadre (brigadier , generals etc) have been reduced to nil particularly in Punjab.

    P.S. Thank you for pointing me to Ayesha Siddiqa’s article. I find it very interesting and agree with most part of it.

  • The point is that the whole army was not behind Musharraf when Lal Masjid and the Bugti operation took place and therefore, the army as an institution should not be blamed but only Musharraf and some of his cronies should be blamed. Whole drama adds to the narrative that the Army is good but there are a few bad apples and the army got rid of those bad apples.

    While talking about the differences between the two Kiyani and Musharraf, Ansar forgot to mention that after the Lal Masjid and the Bugti murder, Musharraf promoted Kiyani to ISI chief position. Strangely the differences between Musharraf and Kiyani were so great that Musharraf reprimanding Kiyani in a meeting still Mushy baba kept giving Kiyani promotions too. With such open differences, no general could have survived as long as Kiyani did under Musharraf.

    As I said, the attempt is to clear the army name and portray Mushy baba as a rogue general on the loose.

    The honest and intelligent Kiyani tried to stop him but he couldn’t because some other Generals, who have since retired, helped the rogue and out of control Mushy baba.

    Now that Kiyani has public endorsement of Ansar and his gang, he can go ahead and takeover.

    Nai jaal layai puraney shikari.

  • @peja

    I agree with your analysis. Also I like Hoss’s analysis which exposes dichotomies in Ansar Abbasi’s narrative of the current military leadership.

    It is interesting to see how the ISI is using Ansar Abbasi and other yellow journalists to project a better image of Kayani versus their PR liability, Musharraf. This also suggests that Pakistani generals may sell not only their mothers but also their father/s for certain pragmatic (mostly personal and institutional) gains.

  • According to Ahmed Noorani (a member of Ansar Abbasi’s Hizbut-Tahrir brigade of the Jang Group), Zardari is responsible for deployments of uniformed personnel of Pakistan army. In other words, Kayani good, Zardari bad.

    زرداری کے حکم پر کرنل سمیت متعدد اہلکار مشرف کی خدمت پر مامور

    اسلام آباد (احمد نورانی) صدر آصف علی زرداری کے حکم پر ایک حاضر سروس کرنل سمیت متعدد اہلکار لندن میں سابق صدر پرویز مشرف کی خدمت کیلئے مامور ہیں۔ دی نیوز کے ساتھ گفتگو کرتے ہوئے کرنل الیاس نے تسلیم کیا کہ وہ ریگولر آرمی افسر ہیں اور ان کی تعیناتی ایوان صدر میں ہے۔ صدر آصف علی زرداری نے جنرل مشرف کیلئے اخلاقاً مجھے حکم دیا کہ بطور چیف سکیورٹی آفیسر فرائض انجام دوں۔ کرنل الیاس نے کہا کہ میرے علاوہ صدر زرداری نے لندن میں مشرف کی خدمت کیلئے 4 سے 5 دیگر ملازمین اور اسپیشل سروس گروپ کے 4 کمانڈوز کو بھی تعینات کر رکھا ہے۔ جنرل کیانی کی طرف سے دیئے گئے 4 افراد اس کے علاوہ ہیں جو انہوں نے بطور سابق آرمی چیف انہیں فراہم کئے تھے۔ کرنل الیاس نے دعویٰ کیا کہ مذکورہ بالا اہلکاروں کے علاوہ کسی بھی انٹیلی جنس ادارے کا کوئی بھی ریگولر آرمی افسر مشرف کے ساتھ تعینات نہیں ہے۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ یہ واضح ہو جانا چاہئے کہ میں مشرف کے ساتھ پاک فوج نہیں بلکہ صدر زرداری کی وجہ سے تعینات ہوں۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ سابق صدرکے ساتھ کسی ریگولر آرمی افسر کو تعینات کرنے کی اجازت نہیں۔ صدر مشرف کے ساتھ میری ڈیوٹی سابق صدر کیلئے محض ایک اخلاقی اقدام ہے۔ میں پاکستان آرمی میں بطور ریگولر افسر کام کر رہا ہوں۔ اگر پاک فوج مجھے واپس بلاتی ہے یا میں ریٹائرمنٹ لے لوں گا یا پھر اپنی ڈیوٹی پر واپس آ جاؤں گا۔ کسی بھی سابق صدر کے ساتھ اس قدر سرکاری و فوجی اہلکاروں بشمول حاضر سروس کرنل کی تعیناتی کی مثال پہلے موجود نہیں۔ مشرف کے علاوہ واحد حیات سابق صدر رفیق تارڑ نے دی نیوز سے گفتگو کرتے ہوئے کہا کہ بطور سابق صدر میرے پروٹوکول کیلئے توکوئی فوجی اہلکار تعینات نہیں ہے۔ قواعد کے مطابق سابق صدر کے ساتھ 4 ملازمین تعینات ہوتے ہیں جن میں ایک پی ایس او، ایک پولیس گارڈ، ایک ڈرائیور اور ایک باورچی ہوتا ہے۔ مرحوم سابق صدر فاروق احمد خان لغاری کے عزیز و اقارب نے بھی یہی معلومات دیں۔ ماہرین کے مطابق اگر کوئی صدر ملک سے باہر جاتا ہے تو مذکورہ عملہ کسی صورت اس کے ساتھ باہر نہیں جا سکتا۔ سابق آرمی چیف جنرل (ر) مرزا اسلم بیگ نے بھی ”دی نیوز“ کو بتایا کہ موجودہ قواعد کے مطابق کسی بھی سابق آرمی چیف کے لئے اس طرح کے پروٹوکول کی ملک کے اندر یا باہر اجازت ہی نہیں ہے۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ کچھ برس قبل سابق آرمی چیف کو ایک پی ایس، ایک ڈرائیور، ایک بیٹ مین اور ایک آرمی ٹیلیفون ملتا تھا لیکن بے نظیر بھٹو کے دوسرے دور حکومت میں ان کے حکم پر مجھ سے یہ سہولتیں واپس لے لی گئیں۔ ایک اور سابق آرمی چیف جنرل عبدالوحید کاکڑ کی پوتی نے بھی ”دی نیوز“ سے گفتگو کرتے ہوئے تصدیق کی کہ جنرل کاکڑ کو ایک ملازم بھی نہیں دیا گیا تھا۔ پرویز مشرف غریب پاکستانیوں کے ٹیکس پر لندن میں شاہانہ زندگی گزار رہے ہیں اور وہاں ان کی خدمت کے لئے جو 15 سے 20 افراد تعینات ہیں، مبینہ طور پر ان کی اکثریت پاک فوج سے ہے۔ پاک فوج کے ترجمان اور ڈی جی آئی ایس پی آر سے ایک ماہ سے زائد عرصہ تک تقریباً روزانہ رابطہ کرنے کی کوشش کی گئی لیکن انہوں نے کبھی جواب نہیں دیا تاہم اگست 2009ء میں جب ”دی نیوز“ نے مشرف کی لندن رہائش گاہ پر پاک آرمی کے 12 ریگولر اہلکاروں کی تعیناتی کا انکشاف کیا تھا تو ڈی جی آئی ایس پی آر میجر جنرل اطہر عباس نے دعویٰ کیا تھا کہ بعض قواعد کے تحت سابق آرمی چیف کو اپنے ساتھ کچھ عملہ رکھنے کی اجازت ہے۔ تاہم اس وقت اطہر عباس قواعد کا حوالہ نہیں دے سکے۔ بعدازاں خبر شائع ہونے کے بعد آئی ایس پی آر نے وضاحت کی کہ کرنل الیاس کی شدت کے ساتھ تقرری وزارت داخلہ نے کی تھی، پاک فوج نے نہیں۔ اسی ماہ روزنامہ جنگ میں شائع ہونیوالی خبر کے مطابق جنرل کیانی نے فوج کو کرنل الیاس کو واپس بلانے کا حکم دیا تھا، تاہم ایسا کبھی نہیں ہوا۔ ادھر کرنل الیاس نے آئی ایس پی آر کے دعوے کی تردید کرتے ہوئے کہا کہ وہ کبھی بھی وزارت داخلہ کے ساتھ منسلک نہیں رہے بلکہ گزشتہ 10 سال سے ایوان صدر سے منسلک ہوں۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ وہ کسی سیاست میں ملوث ہیں نہ کسی شخص کے ذاتی امور میں بلکہ صدر آصف علی زرداری کی طرف سے سونپی گئی ڈیوٹی سرانجام دے رہے ہیں۔ مجھے پاک فوج تنخواہ دے رہی ہے اور مزید کچھ اضافی چیز نہیں دی جا رہی۔

    اس سوال پر کہ وہ لندن جیسے شہر میں پاکستانی روپے میں ملنے والی تنخواہ میں کیسے گزر بسر کر رہے ہیں؟ کرنل الیاس نے کہا کہ وہ تنخواہ میں گزارہ کر رہے ہیں۔ انہوں نے صدر زرداری کی سخاوت کا ذکر کرتے ہوئے کہا کہ جب سابق صدر ریٹائر ہوئے تھے صدر کے ساتھ میجر امتیاز کی تقرری ہوئی تھی جبکہ ایس ایس پی بابا خیل کی شوکت عزیز کے ساتھ ڈیوٹی لگائی گئی، مشرف نے صدر زرداری سے درخواست کی تھی کہ ان کے ساتھ میجر امتیاز کے بجائے کرنل الیاس کو لگایا جائے جو کہ صدر زرداری نے منظور کرلی۔ کرنل الیاس نے کہا کہ میری تعیناتی ایوان صدر میں ہے تاہم جب مجھے پاکستان چھوڑنا پڑے تو مجھے ایوان صدر سے این او سی لینا پڑتا ہے اب تک میں متعدد بار این او سی لے چکا ہوں اور میں نے ساری عمر پاک فوج میں خدمات انجام دی ہیں۔ میں بیشتر عرصہ انٹیلی جنس ایجنسیوں میں رہا۔

    صدارتی ترجمان فرحت اللہ بابر پیپلزپارٹی کی پالیسی کی وجہ سے معاملے پر جواب دینے کے لئے تیار نہیں تھے جس پر انہیں درج ذیل سوالنامہ بھیجا گیا۔ کیا یہ سچ ہے کہ ریگولر آرمی افسر کرنل الیاس ایوان صدر سے منسلک ہیں اور گزشتہ 2 سال سے زائد سے صدر زرداری کے حکم پر اس وقت لندن میں جنرل (ر) پرویز مشرف کے ساتھ ڈیوٹی کر رہے ہیں؟ فرحت اللہ بابر نے سوال کا درج ذیل جواب بھجوایا۔ سلام، میں آپ کا سوال کرنے کا حق تسلیم کرتا ہوں تاہم توقع ہے کہ آپ بھی میرا جواب نہ دینے کا حق تسلیم کریں گے۔ آداب فرحت اللہ بابر
