The Pakistani military has communicated reservations over a book written by Lieutenant General (retd) Asad Durrani, previous head of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), for expressing different subjects against the realities.
DG ISPR in tweet says Durrani is being summoned on Monday May,28 to the General Headquarters (GHQ) for clearing his position. They said that the previous covert operative boss would need to clear his situation over an infringement of the military’s code of conduct.
Durrani, who served as the chief of Pakistan’s premier intelligence agency from August 1990 till March 1992, co-authored the book titled ‘The Spy Chronicles: RAW, ISI and the Illusion of Peace’ with former Indian spy chief AS Dulat.
The advancement comes hours after previous chief Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Raza Rabbani voiced their reservations over the book. Speaking to journalists in Islamabad on Friday, Nawaz demanded that an emergency meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) be summoned over the book written by Durrani.
The former premier said that a trustworthy national commission should be constituted to look over such matters.
Rabbani, who formerly served as the chairman of the Senate of Pakistan, also severely criticized the teaming up of former chiefs of Pakistan and India’s spy agencies to write the book.
“A book co-authored by former chief of India’s spy agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) AS Dulat and ex-chief of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant General (retd) Asad Durrani has recently been published,” Rabbani said, while addressing a Senate session on Friday.
“It is shocking that on one hand Pakistan and India relations are at an all-time low and on the other hand, former spy chiefs of both the countries are teaming up to write a book.”
Rabbani further lashed out saying that had a civilian or a politician teamed up with a counterpart to write a book similar to Dulat and Durrani’s, then there would have been a “hue and cry.”
“Had a politician done the same thing he would have been labelled a traitor,” he asserted.
