Daily Times Monitor

LAHORE: The Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) gave millions of rupees to different politicians during former president Ghulam Ishaq Khan’s regime and no one has ever denied receiving money from the agency, former chief justice of Pakistan Saeeduz Zaman Siddiqui said on Wednesday.

Talking to a private TV channel, he said the ISI was an intelligence agency and should not interfere in politics, or be used against politicians. He said former ISI director general Lt Gen Asad Durrani had informed the Supreme Court that he had given money to politicians, ostensibly to ‘convince’ them to join the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI).

Justice (r) Siddiqui told the channel that he had said at that time that the ISI’s role should not be political. He said the case was still pending in the Supreme Court at the time of the 1999 coup. He said Lt Gen (r) Durrani had presented an affidavit in court, giving details of the money distributed to different politicians.

According to the affidavit, then chief of army staff General (r) Mirza Aslam Baig had advised the intelligence agency in September 1990 that it should give logistic support to the transfer of funds from the business community in Karachi to the IJI during the 1988 election.

According to the written affidavit of July 24, 1994, Lt Gen (r) Durrani said he was informed at the time that the step had the government’s complete support. After the orders, he said he opened a number of accounts in banks in Karachi, Rawalpindi and Quetta.

A man from Karachi named Younas Habib had deposited Rs 140 million in a bank account and the rest of the money was transferred to a special fund.

According to the affidavit, acquired by the TV channel, former caretaker prime minister Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi received Rs 5 million, former Sindh chief minister Jam Sadiq Rs 5 million, former prime minister Muhammad Khan Junejo Rs 2.5 million, Nawaz Sharif Rs 3.5 million, senior politician Pir Pagaro Rs 2 million, the Jamaat-e-Islami Rs 5 million, Mir Afzal Khan Rs 10 million, Abida Hussain Rs 1 million, Lt Gen Rafaqat Rs 5.6 million for managing the media campaign, Humayun Marri Rs 1.5 million, former prime minister Zafarullah Jamali Rs 4 million, Kakar Rs 1 million, Jam Yousaf Rs 0.7 million, Hasil Bizenjo Rs 0.5 million, Nadir Mengal Rs 1 million, Altaf Hussain Qureshi and Mustafa Sadiq Rs 0.5 million, Salahuddin Rs 0.3 million, smaller groups Rs 5.4 million and others received Rs 3.339 million.

While some politicians admit, the hypocrites of Jamaat Islam are still in denial:

    By Burhanuddin Hasan

    A retired brigadier who was an unknown IB chief in 1992 suddenly appeared on the television and started spilling the beans about top secret information on the Jinnahpur scandal, formation of a political party named IJI by ISI, doling out of slush money to important political leaders to help overthrow Benazir’s government and pave the way for Mian Nawaz Sharif to win the election from IJI platform and the funds provided by ISI.
    Brigadier (retd) Imtiaz became an overnight sensation and a star of prime time TV talk shows. He disclosed that the IJI plot was hatched by ISI under the guidance of the retired Army Chief Mirza Aslam Beg who secured an amount of Rs 15 crore from Mehran Bank managed by a known corrupt banker Younus Habib to create a slush fund to bribe influential politicians. He also disclosed the names of these politicians.
    President Ghulam Ishaq Khan, who was annoyed by Benazir for various reasons, was also instrumental in the creation of IJI and Nawaz Sharif’s victory in the 1990 election.
    It may be recalled that the second round of musical chairs, began when Mian Nawaz Sharif, the then Chief Minister of Punjab emerged victorious in the general elections held in November 1990. He had won a majority of the seats in the National Assembly to form a strong government and was hopefully expected to complete his five year term in office, but providence willed otherwise.

  4. Altaf Hassan Qureshi is a big munafiq, who is always ‘available’ to serve establishment in its dirty games. This hypocrat, just before fall of Dhaka, told Pakistanis that there was no ‘separation movement’ in Dhaka, Bazaars and markets were opened and everything was in ‘favour’ of Pakistan. But just after a few months fall of dhaka took place. Than, this fraud took bribe from ISI in the making of IJI. Today, this person is busy day and night to set Right the ” Qibla” of Pakistan. Subhanallah.
