The Fraud Who Went a Step Too Far (Part II)
Transcript of Jahil-Online’s ‘blasphemous’ interview
(Daily Times, 7 May 2005)
Daily Times: You said the ISI was the architect of jihadis and you said now the ISI is arresting the jihadis. Now who is putting hurdles in the way of the government and who is actually threatening enlightened moderation?
Jahil-Online: Many people told me not to make such statements but I am outspoken. There is an ISI within the ISI, the former more powerful than the original. They were the godfathers of the Taliban. Who attacked President Musharraf? Only Army personnel can do this. A third attempt on President Musharraf’s life is also possible. There are people who are enemies of Musharraf Saheb. They will not spare me either. My life is in danger too. President Musharraf should be careful about his life. He has his enemies within.
Daily Times: Do you have any evidence to substantiate your claim with regard to “an ISI within the ISI”?
Jahil-Online: Yes, there is plenty of evidence. For example, look at the tenor and tone of MMA chief Qazi Husain Ahmed. From where does he derive the confidence to claim that he would have Musharraf kicked out of the army very soon. Yes, he has got ‘some people’ behind him.
Daily Times: What do you mean by “enemies within”? Does it mean the Army?
Jahil-Online: Look, President Musharraf has on a number of occasions told the nation that the real threat to the country was from within. Which means there exists an internal threat, far greater than any outer one. Well, internal threat includes the Army.
Moral of the Story: You can lie, cheat, bullshit and commit fraud at the highest levels and get away with it but even Commando Salamat can’t protect you if you besmirch a most hallowed institution.
