This Brigadier mentioned below was fooling everybody on GEO TV in its program Jirga whereas the numskull host Salim Safi was “Summun, Bukmun, Umyun. At the end of the program Brigadier Imtiaz had again boasted that if he is given another chance, he will again distribute money amongst politicians [like in Mehran Bank Scam] to “save the country” and Salim Safi ‘forgot’ to ask this question about this news which was relayed by the same GEO TV. By the way Kamran Khan is the creation of Brigadier Imtiaz.

IHC acquits Brig. (R) Imtiaz under NRO Updated at: 1902 PST, Thursday, December 04, 2008


ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) has exonerated former chief of intelligence bureau, Brig. (Retd.) Imtiaz in illegal assets reference under NRO and also de-frozen his assets. FIA filed cases against Brig. (Retd.) Imtiaz, his son Nadeem and a man named Adnan Khawaja who were later convicted by an Accountability court. Brig. (Retd.) Imtiaz was charged with allegations of owning more assets than what his earnings can justify and that he acquired those assets through unscrupulous means.

Newspaper of GEO TV have no sense at all on one hand they relay above news and on other they also ‘publish’ this to clean the track record of Brigadier Imtiaz:

Read and Lament

Brigadier Tirmizi had thoroughly exposed these bunch of James Bond i.e. Brigadier Imtiaz, Hamid Gul, Major Amir and General Akhter Abdul Rahman, in his book Profile of Intelligence and by the way Tirmizi was number 2 in ISI much before Brigadier Imtiaz. Brigadier Imtiaz’s had gotten his Tamgha Basalat through “Sifarish” and that is also mentioned in Profile of Intelligence and involvement of Hamid Gul in Narcotics Trade.

More shame on Brigadier Imtiaz:


Twelve years later, murder of the ‘Prince’ remains a mystery By Aroosa Masroor Saturday, September 20, 2008


Five months later in February 1997, Benazir Bhutto, clarified the same before a three-member judicial tribunal headed by Justice Nasir Aslam Zahid, as a witness. She accused President Farooq Leghari of using Brig Imtiaz, who led an intelligence agencies, of hatching a conspiracy against the Bhuttos and especially to incite hatred against her. “First they killed Shahnawaz and blamed Murtaza for his murder and now they have targeted him and my husband, Zardari, is being co-accused,” she was stated as saying.

New NA sets anti-Musharraf tone, softly but firmly

Haqqani, a lethal propagandist, closely worked with Nawaz for years, but the latter’s well-placed distrust led him to get rid of Haqqani during his rule in a decent manner. There are multitudes of interesting anecdotes involving Haqqani, who does too many things at a time. Way back in 1993, to get him out of his office, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had appointed his special assistant on foreign media Haqqani as Pakistan’s high commissioner to Sri Lanka. At the time, the tension between Nawaz and the then chief of the Army staff Gen Asif Nawaz Janjua was at its peak and both sides were mulling extreme action to ditch the other. When Haqqani had met Intelligence Bureau (IB) Director Brig (retd) Imtiaz during his customary calls on important government personalities before taking his ambassadorial assignment, the IB chief gave him a highly loaded written questionnaire with a recording device to be secretly used by him when he would meet the Army chief a few days later. He was asked to bring the recorded answers to him. As Haqqani entered the general’s room at the General Headquarters for the call on him, he put the recording instrument and questions before him, saying he had been given all this by Imtiaz and forced to secretly record his answer. This further fuelled tension between the two."

Late. General Asif Nawaz Janjua, NI(M), SBt (Bar), afwc, psc (3 January 1937 – 8 January 1993) was the 10th Chief of Army Staff of the Pakistan Army from August 16, 1991 till January 8, 1993.

The untimely demise of General Asif Nawaz fuelled much controversy, with FIRs being filed against Brigadier Imtiaz, the then Director Intelligence Bureau. The issue gathered momentum following General Nawaz’s widow Nuzhat Janjua’s filed a formal complaint to the then President Ghulam Ishaq Khan about the unnatural circumstances surrounding her husband’s death.
The Chief of Army Staff, General Asif Nawaz had begun to feel upset at many of Sharif’s moves, most significant of them being his attempts to create rifts within the Army. Chaudhry Nisar Ahmad and Brig. Imtiaz, the former ISI chief, were even accused by the late General of threatening to turn him into another Gul Hasan, the army chief who was sacked by Z.A. Bhutto and bundled into a car by Ghulam Mustafa Khar and taken to Lahore by road. It is said that just when General Mirza Aslam Beg was about to topple Nawaz Sharif at the fag end of his tenure in 1991, President Ghulam Ishaq Khan agreed to name General Asif Nawaz as the new COAS, three months before he was to take over. Just when General Asif Nawaz was getting seriously worried about the Nawaz Sharif government, he died quite suddenly in January, 1993Reference: Saga of intrigue and deceit by Shaheen Shebai – Dawn – 27.5.1993 / ISLAMIC PAKISTAN: ILLUSIONS & REALITY By Abdus Sattar Ghazali

Genuine differences of opinion are one thing but when professional and personal jealousies cloud the thinking of the intelligence officers, the working relations can breakdown very quickly paralyzing the whole organization. One outgoing Director of Counter Intelligence Bureau of ISI (Tirmazi) has these words for his successor (Imtiaz), ‘I would personally inclined to agree that General Akhtar, to square-off some of his personal grievances against General Chisti, could have asked my successor, Brigadier Imtiaz to place General under occasional watch. Imtiaz was the kind who was always on the lookout to undertake such dirty jobs’. Immersed in self-righteous attitude, deterioration of professional codes and clouding of perspectives of intelligence officers can occur quite dramatically. One example will show the slippery slope of such intelligence matters. Colonel Shuja Khanzada served in ISI for 12 years. In the last two years of his service, he was posted to a cushy appointment in Pakistan embassy in Washington. He had some differences with the ambassador and was called back to Pakistan in 1994 on orders of then Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Politicization of intelligence officers in inevitable when they are tasked with political duties while wearing the uniform. After shedding their uniform, these officers align with various political actors for political and personal reasons. Lt. General Khawaja Muhammad Azhar served in ISI during General Muhammad Ayub Khan’s Martial Law. In this capacity, he personally interrogated many prominent people who were not considered loyal to Ayub. After retirement he joined a religio-political party Jamiat-e-Ulema-e-Pakistan and served as the party’s Secretary General and Vice President. Former DG ISI Hameed Gul, former Additional Director of Political wing of ISI Brigadier Imtiaz Ahmad and head of Islamabad section Major Amir were involved in cobbling the opposition to Pakistan’s Peoples Party. Later, they were implicated in trying to organize a no confidence motion against first Benazir government (1988-1990). Reference: Brigadier ® Syed A. I. Tirmazi. Profiles of Intelligence.

No doubt Army is an essential institution for any country but Poor Pakistani People dont pay them for doing and saying this!! Hamid Gul thinks that Brigadier Imtiaz [who was once under Gul] works for Jews????

ISLAMABAD: Former Chief of the Inter-Services Intelligence Lt. Gen. Hamid Gul said the Jews have played a role in the campaign initiated by Brig. Imtiaz Billa to demonize him.
