After the indictment of General Pervez Musharraf and some of his cronies in Pakistan’s military and civil establishment by the UN Commission, certain agents of the establishment in Pakistani media and politics have become active in their traditional diversion and division tactics in order to save real killers from gallows.
Instead of investigating and discussing the role of General Musharraf and the security agencies in Benazir Bhutto’s murder, certain vested interests are creating an impression as if BB’s inner circles within her own family and the PPP were involved in her murder.
Two such persons who are clearly a target of the ISI’s disinformation cell are Rehman Malik and Babar Awan. While I have some reservations about the ‘speeding away’ of Rehman Malik and others at the time of BB’s assassination, I attribute this act to the lack of personal courage and leadership skills.
Veteran journalist Asadullah Ghalib has written an excellent article on this topic in Express today, which is provided below:
