By Dr Shahid Qureshi: –
Which country’s military and security establishment allows its Prime Minster (Nawaz Sharif), Defence Minister, Foreign Minister (Khawaja Asif), and Interior Security Minister (Ahsan Iqbal) work for another country, hold work permit and receive payments? So, wake up boys you do not have the ‘power’ which you claim, feel or lead to believe you have. If you do have real ‘power’ than why all these people are free to enjoy life of luxury and Military is cleaning ‘dirty drains’ in Karachi a job of sweepers?
Probably you just live in a bubble with no actual power as cleaning up of traitors starts from inside, but all foreign agents are doing their jobs from Prime Minister house to the Police stations. Locks don’t work when enemies are inside the house.
“Do you know anyone from NDTV (Indian News Channel close to establishment) here, Nawaz Sharif, former Prime minister of Pakistan asked me at a London Hotel in Park Lane on the day Charter of Democracy was signed with PPP leader Benazir Bhutto. I said to him, ‘Is there anything I can do for you Mian sb’. Bombay Palace Restaurant at Edgware Road and NDTV are Nawaz Sharif favourites. The in-action of the security establishment against the treacherous elements, politicians, judges, journalists, businessmen and elite class is unacceptable. It seems the security establishment did not show the ‘merciless cruelty and specialist killings’ to the agents on Indian, Iranian, European or US payrolls as much ‘ruthlessness’ they showed to the petty Madrassa students and/or former Soviet – Afghan war Mujahideen. It was okay to be a ‘Indian – western agent’ and damage the state with electrical shortages (IPP deals), food shortages, financial terrorism, and profiteering?
Some people in the security establishment were doing their job honestly as according to a book, “Air Massacre over Bahawalpur” page 341, written by a former ISI officer Commodore Tariq Majeed: “Nawaz Sharif’s Indian Connection: India’s RAW hosted Nawaz Sharif’s visit to Delhi in 1978 and cultivated him in some ways, but he had been picked up and programmed by RAW’s masters, CIA and Mossad, to serve, like Ms Bhutto, the Zionist interests. What gives special significance and authenticity to this disclosure is that its author was a member of the key staff in ISI when Nawaz was being hooked by RAW.
This is not like a spy story of James bond 007 stealing a secret of the enemy. What Nawaz Sharif and others in his team are doing is much more sophisticated and subtle. In modern world agents like Nawaz Sharif serve their masters in a very subtle way for example:
“it was Nawaz Sharif who confirmed the identity of only surviving alleged terrorist of Mumbai Attacks which was quoted all over the world”.
On the other hand, former IG Police of Mahrashtara said in his speech that Ajmal Kassab was in custody of the Indian Agency at the time of Mumbai Attacks. He is seeking re-investigations of Mumbai Attacks and fighting case in the Indian High Court and case hearing is due in October 2016. I have spoken to him and he has confirmed to me that ‘a trial hearing is due in October this year’.
From 2013 to 2017 Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shabaz Sharif as Chief minister Punjab from 2008 to date ruled in Pakistan. During this time RAW agents have been arrested from their sugar mills and other businesses. Nawaz Sharif was the first person who confirmed the identity of Mumbai Bombings accused Ajmal Kasab. He invited Indian Prime Minister Narandra Modi and his national security advisor Ajit Doval on his birthday and Maryam Nawaz’s daughter marriage. He sent his military secretary on ‘gardening leave’ and did not invite his national security advisor. Why?
Those in the military and security establishment who ignored the Dawn Leaks and turned a blind eye to the treacherous behaviour of PML-N leaders are equally responsible as aiders and abettors. No?
Nawaz Sharif has undermined Pakistan from all sides be it economy, foreign affairs, defence or international image. For example, Nawaz Sharif did not appoint:
- A full time Foreign Minister since 2013 for four years until 2017.
- Nawaz Sharif did not appoint a full time Defence Minister.
- Nawaz Sharif’s finance minister Ishaq Dar a money launderer and a liar have business interests with the Indians in Dubai. He is main defender of Indian terrorist group MQM-A.
“Pakistan cannot be left on its own devices”, said a British diplomat in TV program ‘The Agenda’ hosted by famous journalist Yvonne Ridley. In response to my comment: “why British taxpayers money be spent on a country whose regimes are full of corrupt politicians, who are taking money out of the country and let Pakistani people deal with the problems”. You can see why a British diplomat said: Pakistan cannot be left on its own devices.
No one in the media channels informing the people of Pakistan as why was Nawaz Sharif now former prime minister was sacked by the Supreme court of Pakistan.
Pakistani media is already bent and is taking money from foreign agencies including USAID and other EU countries. No country in the world allowed that to happen.
Nawaz Sharif former prime minister of Pakistan keep on asking why I am sacked in public gatherings? Him and his daughter Maryam Nawaz openly attacking judges of the supreme court of Pakistan.
Well the short answer is: ‘Nawaz Sharif you are sacked for deception, breach of Prime Ministerial Oath and parliamentary standards’. You should have been put in jail, but Pakistani judiciary has been very kind with you and your family with weekend service, and you have been getting away with murders that’s why you are sitting in London even as a convicted criminal.
So why he was sacked?
Nawaz Sharif was holding prime minister of Pakistan and Foreign Minister’s office both full time jobs since 2013 – 2017. On the other the hand he was also working full time paid job in a UAE based company owned by his son. That is breach of Prime Minister’s oath or even (MNA) member national assembly oath. He should have been put in prison for withholding information and not declaring his interest. When a prime minister gets gifts from other countries or companies, they are all recorded in the ‘interests register’ and declared.
All his orders and actions taken were also declared null and void. He is not an honest person and does not full fill article 62 and 63 of constitution of Pakistan.
Seventh nuclear power in the world Pakistan’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif was working as an employee of a Dubai based company while also working as full-time prime minister of Pakistan and Foreign Minister.
He possessed a work permit issued by the UAE, ministry of labour at the request of the UAE company with full terms and conditions included with the ‘work permit’ applications for example, how long is the contract, how much would be the monthly salary and specific qualifications of the candidate to do the work as he cannot change his job. After issuing of work permit, interior ministry issues resident permit (Akama) and person can open a Bank account to receive his salary and can invite his family and kids.
If authorities find out that work permit holder is not actually doing the specific job it could be cancelled automatically, and company could be shut down for breach of contract. Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif kept on asking people ‘why I am sacked’ the short answer is because of your ‘deception’. A ‘work permit’ is not issued to do voluntary or unpaid work.
This practice does not stop here as Defence Minister of Pakistan Khawaja Asif was also a ‘work permit’ holder in a UAE company. He was receiving a salary for the job he could not do as later he was also working is a full-time Foreign Minister of Pakistan. Which security establishment allows its Defence and Foreign Minister work for another country and receive payments?
The Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal responsible for the national security and head of intelligence agencies is also a ‘work permit’ holder of middle eastern country. So why do these people need a ‘work permit’? The simple reason is that they open bank accounts anywhere in world and their country of residence will be in Middle East and not Pakistan. It is for the money laundering purposes.
Some leaders including ANP and Sindhi nationalist have been taking money from India allegedly to keep national importance project of ‘Kala Bagh Dam’ controversial. Others from MQM-A and PPP have caused losses of trillions to Pakistan by striking in Karachi, creating law and order situations for years and followed the Indian plan of ‘keep Karachi and Pakistan bleeding’. The arrests of many MQM-A terrorists in Karachi and other places who admitted receiving terrorist training in Indian military camps left no doubts that politicians are complicit in this terrorism against Pakistan. MQM-A, Pervez Musharraf and Asif Zardari have killed thousands of Pakistanis in Karachi in the name of re-conciliation and NRO.
Pakistani politicians not only believe but also prove with their actions that Pakistan Army is hurdle between friendships with India. Some reportedly ask Indians for assessment report on Pakistan army. For example, audiotapes of conversations from China between General Pervez Musharraf than Pakistan army chief in 1999 and General Aziz Khan was provided by the Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan to Prime Minister Nawaz Sahrif? After the Mumbai attacks it was Nawaz Sharif who confirmed the identity of Ajmal Kassab as Pakistani citizen.
PML-N Information minister Pervez Rashid fully supported malicious over 8 hours GEO TV campaign against ISI and its Chief General Zahir ul Islam, ‘we support the people with argument and not the with guns’. These toxic characters cannot survive in their positions with the full support of Nawaz Sharif and his mind-set.
Nawaz Sharif’s sons Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz were writing letters to George Fernandez the Indian Defence Minister for assistance after his removal in October 1999 by General Pervez Musharraf.
The fact of the matter is Pakistan needs to put its house in order. It needs to bring facts about these dealings and treachery into the public domain of volume 10, as they have now become issue of national security threat to Pakistan. The businesses, assets and wealth of Pakistani politicians and elite abroad have become a number one security threat. By hiding corruption money aboard Pakistani politicians have given their necks and hands into the hands of foreign states.
I told BBC world news, ‘Pakistan’s number one problem is TREACHERY’.
