Corrupt of all… politicians, generals and others

Corruption is the single greatest obstacle to economic and social development. It is because of greed of money doled out by Hindu-Zionist cabal that there is insurgency and terrorism in the FATA and Balochistan. The abuse of political power for private gain deprives the most needy of vital public services, creating a level of despair that breed conflict and violence.

Nawaz Sharif, Altaf Hussain, Abida Hussain, Jama’at-e-Islami and several other politicians were paid by the ISI to defeat PPP in elections according to an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court by the retired General Durrani, the then ISI boss. The case is still lying pending in the SC for over 10 years.

Naseer Ullah Babar, had disclosed in the National Assembly in 1994 how the ISI had disbursed funds to purchase the loyalty of politicians and public figures so as to manipulate the 1990 elections, form the IJI, and bring about the defeat of the PPP.

Have all our generals been upright men and played it right? Of course, yes! Otherwise would they have ended up the way they did? Ziaul Haq? Governor, General Fazl-e-Haq? How about dubious politician, General Aslam Beg, Lt General Javed Ashraf Kazi first chief of the MI and then of the ISI, Nawaz's ISI chief, General Javed Nasir, sacked by General Waheed Kakar, General Asad Durrani of MI and ISI fame, summarily sacked by General Kakar, rewarded and re-employed by Benazir as her ambassador in Bonn, and dangerous politician, the firebrand fundo General Hamid Gul.

In 1996, Air Marshal Asghar Khan filed a human rights petition in the Supreme Court against General Mirza Aslam Beg, former chief of army staff, Lt General Asad Durrani, former chief of the Inter-Services Intelligence, and Younus Habib of Habib Bank and then Mehran Bank, concerning the criminal distribution of the people's money for political purposes (HRC 19/96). In this case, Lt General Naseer Ullah Babar filed an affidavit in court supported by copies of various documents and a photocopy of a letter dated June 7, 1994, addressed by Durrani to the then prime minister, Benazir Bhutto, who, during her second term in office, appointed him as her ambassador to Germany.

On April 25, 1994, [Daily Dawn] carried an editorial entitled 'Our secret godfathers', which opened up: "Two basic points emerge from General Aslam Beg's admission that in 1990 he took Rs 140 million from the banker Younus Habib and that part of this money was spent by the ISI during the elections that year . . . . . ".

And closed, saying ". . . it is time now for some sort of check on the rogue political activities of our intelligence agencies . . .". It was not time, and apparently it is still not time.

Those who took money: The recipients included Khar 2 million, Hafeez Pirzada 3 million, Sarwar Cheema 0.5 million, Mairaj Khalid 0.2 million, Rs 5,05,680" (advocate Mirza Adil Beg (Aslam Beg's nephew, the then president of the KBA, confirms that the KBA received the money).
