A drama of Jinnahpur Maps was staged in 1992 to malign MQM which today is proved to be false in all respects. Nawaz Sharif of Pakistan Muslim League, then prime Minister is responsible for ‘The Act of 1992 Operation’ against the Citizens of Pakistan………….in which some 15000 civilians were put to death—allegedly demanding a separate homeland in Karachi enclave. This massacre is a Crime against Humanity. Why a trial be not held against him in International Courts?
Adolf Hitler will always be known in the history of mankind as being the most racial and barbaric dictator on the basis of ethnic and religious affiliations. The world soon realized the agenda of Nazi German forces. After invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany (on September 3rd 1939) which in turn resulted in formation of allies between United Kingdom and France for declaring a war against the onslaught of Nazi Germany and this era is termed as Word War II. In the year 1992, the same Nazis like story was repeated here in our country Pakistan; it was a different set of personalities involved and on different racial/political grounds but the hands in the gloves of oppressors are the same.
Yesterday night ex Director General of Intelligence Bureau (IB – which is classed as the top civilian intelligence setup of our country), Brigadier (R) Imtiaz appeared on a talk show named “Sawal Yeh Hai” (the question is?) hosted by Dr. Danish, on ARY OneWorld TV channel unleashing a unique un-told history. One is not sure if Brig (R) Imtiaz himself committed some crime by revealing the details of intelligence operations from the sad history of this country, but ones eye’s can’t stop tears rolling down the cheeks after listening to what has been done on this part of the planet back in early 90s.The other guest in the program was Syed Haider Abbas Rizvi of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) who is termed as the deputy parliamentary leader of the party as well revealing a lot— of yet untold details from the history along with another operation by Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) to unearth plans of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA of USA) trying to plant agents from among the technicians working in the nuclear installations of the country.
There are strings of Khar Legacy also revealed; One of the stories he tell is that Ghulam Mustafa Khar was staying in London as self-exile. He was staying in the apartment of Seth Abid, where he was approached by Mr Joshi, a senior officer of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) of India, to create a joint plan that when there will be Corps Commander conference going on in the Rawalpindi, Pakistan, they will explode the building with explosives and killing all the senior military leadership of Pakistan. According to Birg (R) Imtiaz, Mustafa Khar was the central role player of the plan and RAW was cooperating with him. Khar even met with Indra Ghandi, the then Prime Minister of India – who formally approved the operation. On the other hand Seth Abid, Mr Khar host in London when got suspicious, met General Zia ul Haque and informed him that Mustafa Khar have some dirty plans against the country. He says that Seth Abid was then planted as the Pakistani agent and used to communicate with Mustafa Khar from the ISI office – answering to a question if this is a true-tale, Brig (R) Imtiaz also revealed that all the conversations of the plan between Seth Abid and Mustafa Khar are still on record and are safe at Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) at this time. Then he tells how the plan was busted with the help of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agents.
When Mustafa Khar was phoned on the program by the host, he clearly rejected the allegations and asked that another program should be hosted and he be invited to take his views rather than on phone, to which Dr. Danish agreed.
A mass murder in 1992 Operation in Karachi was carried out and thousands perished. After seeking a confirmation that he have experience of more than 11 years of service in Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Dr. Danish asked Brig (R) Imtiaz about another conspiracy of 1992 Operation against the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM), when Lt Gen Naseer Akhtar was Corps Commander of 10 Corps (Karachi) and Lt. Gen Asif Janjua was the Chief of Army Staff that whether any permission of operation from the then Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif was not sought about this operation? Brig (R) Imtiaz, said that the prime minister was in knowledge of it which is on record and neither he raised any objection about it. He confirmed that this is definite that when this operation began, MQM raised their voice against the operation & the international community showed concern over this operation, Mr Nawaz Sharif also called on Lt Gen Asif Janjua, the then Chief of Army staff, to discuss the issue to which the then Prime Minister, Mr. Nawaz Sharif instructed to continue the operation which is also on record. Dr. Danish then questioned about the political innocence of Mr. Nawaz Sharif, as he is famous for showing his deliberate ignorance including the Kargil war, as why he did not ask this operation to be stopped which was started and continued during his tenure?
Dr. Danish then took Lt. Gen (R) Naseer Akhtar on phone line and questioned him that if he did seek permission from the then Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif to conduct the operation to kill 15000 workers of MQM to which he confirmed that the permission was sought and granted through a proper chain of command and proceedures. Mr. Nawaz Sharif remained present in the Pano Aqil Cantonment during all the conferences where the 1992 Operation was discussed at length along with Chief Of Army Staff and President Ghulam Ishaq Khan – and gave permission to conduct this—- genocide! Then he asked ex-corps commander about the alleged Jinnahpur map discovered from Karachi, to which he said that this was very disappointing to say that some map was there. There were never any of such map discovered, and this rhetoric of Map was also withdrawn just after two days. Lt Gen Nasee Akhtar declined twice on the phone that even while being Corps Commander of Karachi, he was completely unaware of any such thing called as Jinnahpur map. This to be noted here that Lt Gen (R) Naseer Akhtar is well known a responsible figure and mastermind of the 1992 Karachi operation.
Coming back to Brig (R) Imtiaz, Dr. Danish questioned that according to the ex-corps commander, Lt Gen (R) Naseer Akhtar – the prime minister, Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen (R) Asif Janjua was completely in loop of the operation. Dr Danish again asked about the Jinnahpur saga and asks Brig (R) Imtiaz that being the then DG Intelligence Bureau to tell that from which office of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) the so called map of Jinnahpur was discovered? Answering to which he said that I investigated this whole issue for seven days and at the end concluded that this Jinnahpur map was a complete drama and conspiracy against Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) and there were absolutely no maps discovered from the offices of MQM. Brig (R) Imtiaz reiterated that Lt. Gen (R) Naseer Akhtar was the Corps Commander of the 10 Corp in Karachi during that time then how this is possible that he was completely unaware of the Jinnahpur map if there was any? How this become possible that those maps were also published? Who passed it to the press resulting in the headlines of all the newspapers on the next day? Including the headline of the JANG newspaper published in the London. This is bloody nonsense.
Breaking in tears, Haider Abbas Rizvi said that this is a big day of his life, it reminds him of his 15000 party workers killed in this operation, the way his party and the leader Altaf Hussain was accused of being agents of Research & Analysis Wing (RAW – INDIA). The way the patriotism of his party was challenged. He also requested Brig (R) Imtiaz to please swear upon Allah to tell everyone about those torture cells of MQM were ever existed? Haider Abbas Rizvi said that during the operation, women workers of MQM, including elder mothers and sisters were overrun by horses by Police and the Army during the operation, he thanked Lt. Gen (R) Naseer Akhtar of telling and accepting at last the truth today after 17 years. Dr. Danish when asking another question, Haider Rizvi insisted Dr. Danish to please ask Brig (R) Imtiaz if those torture cell of MQM ever existed to which Dr. Danish said that as this is now clear that Jinnahpur map was a propaganda against MQM an implant and was fake, it is needless to question that MQM operated any torture cell anywhere.
This is one of the biggest blunder in the history of our beloved country that a political party was convicted of false crimes and an illegal operation was raged on them resulting in the deaths of 15000 workers, including infants, children and women. Out of whole of this episode of the Dr. Danish’s talk show, one thing we can easily conclude that this operation was started or at least continued on the behest of then Prime Minister, Mr. Nawaz Sharif of Pakistan Muslim League – which is indeed a symbol of shame for everyone being citizen of this country. Those who have lived in the city of Karachi during 1992-1999 are well aware of how this operation was conducted, how members of an specific political party (MQM) was killed under the blame of claiming of a separate state, which is all now termed as false. Since now this fact is revealed and the 1992 operation unearthed, Mr. Nawaz Sharif and his party PML-N, proud owner of sugar mills, flour mills, rice mills, members of the elite class, the lions of the Punjab, should be ashamed of conducting such henious crimes and mass murder. They must be tried in International criminal court for their crimes against humanity.
Now, one may asks that where is Mr. Chief Justice, Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary; the Giant? I hope he have seen the yesterday’s episode of Dr. Danish’s program or at least have read the newspapers? Will he the take suo-moto action now? Or his sou-moto actions are only meant for one of those blessed ones where there is a vested interest. By the way, 15000 (or lets say 1500?) illegal murders is not a joke! We need to take some serious actions against those responsible now – in order to avoid any genocide in future in our country, and in my humble opinion the list starts with 1. PML-N Leader Mr. Nawaz Sharif, 2. The then Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen (R) Asif Nawaz Janjua, 3. The then Corps Commander of 10 Corpe (Karachi), Lt. Gen (R) Naseer Akhtar, and so on…….and on…..!
