Saleem Shahzad’s family should nominate General Kiyani and General Pasha as prime suspects
Yesterday the representative of the Pakistan Human Rights Commission said that Saleem Shahzad was in the custody of the ISI. He added: “The ISI is the major human rights abuser in Pakistan and it frequently keeps abusing and torturing those journalists it disagrees with.”
And now Saleem Shahzad is no more than a corpse. The ISI remains above the law. Pakistan’s Islamo-fascist media led by the Geo mafia will point the finger at “the foreign hands” which means India and the United States. But no one will say a word about the ISI. World’s most incompetent and yet most murderous outfit, the ISI, has every legal and illegal immunity to kill people in the name of national security. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was a threat to the national security; later Benazir was a security risk, and now Saleem Shahzad has been given his due for reporting on the attack on the PNS Mehran naval base in Karachi. The pro-ISI and pro-Taliban media led by Geo has been criticizing those handful of journalists who have tried to identify our military’s complicity with the Taliban. These brave journalists have been called traitors who are not helping the military “in the hour of need”.
And now a horrible example has been made of Saleem Shahzad. The message is very clear: glorify the generals, support their illegal pillage of Pakistan, or get ready to be killed. If only Saleem Shahzad had a gun, the ISI kidnappers would have run away like rats. It is a matter of record that if you are an unarmed “bloody civilian,” our “armed forces” deal with you with an iron hand. But once you take up the arms against them, they chicken out and pee in their pants just like they have routinely done whenever confronted by Indian soldiers.
We at Let Us Build Pakistan sympathize with the family of Saleem Shahzad. We urge them to file the FIR and nominate General Kiyani and General Pasha as the main suspects.
