امریکا نے پاکستان کے شہر ایبٹ آباد میں القاعدہ کے لیڈر اسامہ بن لادن کی ہلاکت کے لیے گذشتہ سال کی گئی کارروائی کے دوران برآمد شدہ دستاویزات میں سے سترہ کو جمعرات کو جاری کیا ہے۔ان میں القاعدہ کے مقتول لیڈر نے مسلمانوں کی جہاد سے چشم پوشی پر افسوس کا اظہار کیا ہے اور ان سے یہ بھی انکشاف ہوا ہے کہ وہ مسلم دنیا میں حملوں کے مخالف تھے۔

وائٹ ہاؤس نے ویسٹ پوائنٹ ملٹری اکادمی میں قائم انسداد دہشت گردی مرکز کو اسامہ بن لادن کے خفیہ خطوط اور دوسری دستاویزات شائع کرنے کی اجازت دی ہے۔عربی زبان میں ان کاغذات میں ایک سو پچھہتر صفحات کو محیط خطوط یا ان کے مسودے شامل ہیں جو انھوں نے ستمبر دوہزار چھے سے اپریل دوہزار گیارہ تک لکھوائے تھے یا خود لکھے تھے۔

ان دستاویزات سے القاعدہ کے نیٹ ورک کے درمیان اندرونی خط وکتابت کا بھی انکشاف ہوا ہے۔یہ خطوط خود اسامہ بن لادن یا یمن ،پاکستان اور صومالیہ میں القاعدہ سے وابستہ جنگجو گروپوں نے لکھے تھے۔ان کے علاوہ اسامہ کی اپنے ہاتھ سے لکھی ایک ڈائری بھی امریکی کمانڈوز کے ہاتھ لگی تھی جو وہ بھاگتے ہوئے اپنے ساتھ لے گئے تھے اور اب اس میں سے القاعدہ کے لیڈر کی نجی وتنظیمی زندگی اور دوسری تنظیموں کے ساتھ ان کے روابط کے حوالے سے انکشافات کیے جارہے ہیں۔

ان تحریروں میں اسامہ بن لادن نے اس بات پر بھی افسوس کا اظہار کیا تھا کہ مسلمان جہاد کے نظریے سے دور ہوتے جارہے ہیں۔بی بی سی کی رپورٹ کے مطابق اسامہ بن لادن نے اپنے پیروکاروں کو مشورہ دیا تھا کہ وہ اسلامی دنیا میں حملوں سے گریز کریں اور اس کے بجائے صرف امریکا پر اپنی توجہ مرکوز کریں۔

بن لادن کی خط وکتابت کے ساتھ امریکی تجزیہ کاروں کی ایک رپورٹ بھی جاری کی گئی ہے جس کے مطابق وہ دہشت گرد گروپوں کی جانب سے اپنے نصب العین کے لیے عوامی حمایت کے حصو ل میں ناکامی ،ناکام میڈیا مہموں اور حملوں کی ناقص منصوبہ بندی پر اپ سیٹ تھےکیونکہ ان کے حملوں میں اسامہ کے نقطہ نظر سے بہت زیادہ بے گناہ مسلمان مارے گئے تھے۔

اسامہ بن لادن کے مشیر آدم جدھن نے ان پر زوردیا تھا کہ وہ عراق میں القاعدہ سے وابستہ تنظیم کی کارروائیوں سے اظہار لاتعلقی کریں۔اس پر انھوں نے دوسری تنظیموں اور امریکیوں کے بہ قول دہشت گرد گروپوں پر زوردیا تھا کہ وہ عراقی القاعدہ کی غلطیوں کو نہ دہرائیں۔

اس خط وکتابت میں القاعدہ کے اس وقت کے نائب کماندار ابو یحییٰ اللبی کے خطوط بھی شامل ہیں جن میں انھوں نے کالعدم تحریک طالبان پاکستان سے کہا تھا کہ وہ مسلمانوں پر بلا امتیاز حملوں سے گریز کرے۔

اسامہ بن لادن نے جزیرہ نما عرب میں القاعدہ کے لیڈر ناصر الوحشی کو یمن میں اقتدار سنبھالنے پر خبردار کیا تھا اور ان سے کہا تھا کہ وہ اس کے بجائے امریکا پر حملوں پر اپنی توجہ مرکوز کریں۔

ان خطوط ودستاویزات کے مطابق القاعدہ کے لیڈر نے صومالیہ سے تعلق رکھنے والے الشباب جنگجوؤں کی جانب سے وفاداری کے اعلان پر کوئی زیادہ دلچسپی ظاہر نہیں کی تھی اور ان کے خیال میں الشباب کے جنگجو اپنے کنٹرول والے علاقوں میں کوئی اچھا نظم ونسق قائم نہیں کرسکے تھے اور انھوں نے اسلامی سزاؤں اور لوگوں کے ہاتھ کاٹنے میں سختی کا مظاہرہ کیا تھا۔

امریکیوں کےبہ قول ان خطوط سے القاعدہ اور ایران کے درمیان تعلقات کا بھی انکشاف ہوا ہے لیکن امریکا کو اس کی حقیقی مراد حاصل نہیں ہوسکی کیونکہ ملنے والے خطوط سے صرف اتنا پتا چلتا ہے کہ ایرانی حکام اور القاعدہ کے درمیان ایران میں قید بعض جنگجوؤں اور ان کے خاندانوں کی رہائی کے ضمن میں بات چیت ہوئی تھی لیکن القاعدہ اور ایران کے درمیان کوئی خوشگوار اور توانا تعلق قائم نہیں تھا۔

ان کاغذات سے براہ راست یہ بات ثابت نہیں ہوتی کہ پاکستانی حکومت میں القاعدہ کا کوئی خیرخواہ بھی موجود تھا۔اسامہ بن لادن نے اپنی بعض تحریروں میں ”قابل اعتماد پاکستانی بھائیوں” کے الفاظ استعمال کیے ہیں لیکن انھوں نے پاکستان کے کسی سرکاری یا فوجی عہدے دار کی شناخت ظاہر نہیں کی جس سے یہ پتاچل سکے کہ کسی پاکستانی عہدے دار کو ایبٹ آباد میں ان کے ٹھکانے کا علم تھا۔

رپورٹ کے مطابق بن لادن نے سکیورٹی اقدامات پراطمینان کا اظہار کیا تھا جن کہ وجہ سے ان کا خاندان کئی سال تک محفوظ رہا تھا۔انھوں نے ایبٹ آباد میں واقع اپنی رہائش گاہ پر سکیورٹی کو یقینی بنانے کے لیے سخت انتطامات کررکھے تھے اور بچوں کو کمپاؤنڈ سے باہر کسی بڑے آدمی کی نگرانی کے بغیر کھیل کود کے لیے جانے کی اجازت نہیں تھی۔

اسامہ بن لادن نے یکم مئی کوامریکی سیلز ٹیم کی کارروائی میں اپنی ہلاکت تک امریکا کو اپنے حملوں کا نشانہ بنانے لیے اپنی توجہ مرکوز کیے رکھی تھی اور اس مقصد کے لیے وہ منصوبے تیار کرتے رہتے تھے لیکن وہ کسی امریکی لیڈر کو ہلاک کرنے یا امریکا پر کوئی بڑا حملہ کرنے میں ناکام رہے تھے۔رپورٹ میں بتایا گیا ہے کہ اسامہ بن لادن القاعدہ سے وابستہ تنظیموں کی دنیا بھر میں کارروائیوں سے متعلق روزانہ کی بنیاد پر باخبر نہیں تھے۔

القاعدہ کے مقتول لیڈراسامہ بن لادن کے پاکستان کے شہر ایبٹ آباد میں واقع مکان سے امریکیوں کے ہاتھ لگنے والی دستاویزات کو ان کی ہلاکت کا ایک سال پورا ہونے پر منظرعام پر لایا جارہا ہے اور ان کے مطابق اسامہ بن لادن ،افغانستان کے طالبان مزاحمت کاروں اور دوسرے جنگجوؤں کے درمیان نیٹو فوجیوں پر حملوں کے لیے منصوبہ بندی سمیت قریبی تعلقات کار قائم تھے۔امریکا میں اس موقع پر باقاعدہ طور پر ایک ہفتے کا جشن منایا جارہا ہے جس کے دوران امریکی صدر براک اوباما اور دوسرے عہدے دار دہشت گردی کے خلاف جنگ میں اس ”فتح عظیم” پر ڈونگرے برسا رہے ہیں اور اسامہ کی ہلاکت کے واقعہ سے متعلق نئے نئے گوشے منظرعام پر لارہے ہیں۔۔

امریکیوں کے ہاتھ لگنے والی دستاویزات میں وہ خط وکتابت اور یادداشتیں بھی شامل ہیں جو اسامہ بن لادن نے لکھوائی تھیں اور ان میں انھوں نے اپنے پیروکاروں پر زوردیا تھا کہ وہ بلاامتیاز حملوں سے گریز کریں کیونکہ اس طرح مسلمانوں کی ہلاکتیں ہوتی ہیں۔

برطانوی اخبار گارڈین نے لکھا کہ ”امریکی اور افغان حکام نے حال ہی میں اس توقع کا اظہار کیا ہے کہ طالبان کو دہشت گردی کی مذمت پر آمادہ کیا جاسکتا ہے لیکن ان دستاویزات سے ان خدشات کو تقویت ملی ہے کہ طالبان نے ایک مرتبہ پھر القاعدہ یا اس کے ہم خیال جنگجوؤں کو محفوظ ٹھکانوں کی پیش کش کی ہے۔اس لیے اس کے تناظر میں طالبان اور القاعدہ کی اعلیٰ قیادت کے درمیان قریبی تعاون اور اتحاد کو ایک بڑا مسئلہ قرار دیا جارہا ہے۔

اخبارکی رپورٹ کے مطابق اسامہ بن لادن کی کمپیوٹر پر تحریریں ان کی ہلاکت سے صرف ایک ہفتہ قبل سے لے کر کئی سال پرانی تھیں اور ان سے یہ بات بھی ثابت ہوتی ہے کہ وہ نائیجیریا سے تعلق رکھنے والے جنگجو گروپ بوکو حرام کے علاوہ متعدد دوسرے گروپوں سے براہ راست یا بالواسطہ ابلاغی رابطے میں تھے۔دستاویزات سے یہ بات بھی ثابت ہوتی ہے کہ بوکوحرام کے سربراہ گذشتہ اٹھارہ ماہ سے القاعدہ سے اعلیٰ سطح پر رابطوں میں تھے۔

واضح رہے کہ اسامہ بن لادن ایبٹ آباد میں 2مئی 2011ء کو امریکی خصوصی فورسز کی ایک چھاپہ مار کارروائی میں ہلاک ہوگئے تھے۔اس واقعہ کے بعد سے امریکی اور مغربی میڈیا اور خفیہ ادارے القاعدہ کے مقتول لیڈر کا پاکستان کے سکیورٹی اداروں سے ناتا جوڑنے کے لیے ایڑی چوٹی کا زور لگا رہے ہیں۔

An American citizen that was killed in a US drone strike in Pakistan, Jude Mohammed, was arrested by Pakistani authorities in 2011 but escaped after being granted bail, the Associated Press reported.

The Barack Obama administration on Wednesday acknowledged for the first time that US drone strikes have killed four Americans in Pakistan and Yemen since 2009, the New York Times reported.

According to Pakistani security officials, Jude was killed in a drone attack in South Waziristan in late 2011.

Jude, a part of an eight-member suspected terrorist group based in the US, was indicted by American authorities in 2009 for an alleged plot to attack a US Marine Corps base.

Pakistani officials arrested Jude when he tried to illegally cross into Mohmand.

The Mail on Sunday today reveals shocking new evidence of the full horrific impact of US drone attacks in Pakistan.

A damning dossier assembled from exhaustive research into  the strikes’ targets sets out in heartbreaking detail the deaths of teachers, students and Pakistani policemen. It also describes how bereaved relatives are forced to gather their loved ones’ dismembered body parts in the aftermath of strikes.

The dossier has been assembled by human rights lawyer Shahzad Akbar, who works for Pakistan’s Foundation for Fundamental Rights and the British human rights charity Reprieve.

Filed in two separate court cases, it is set to trigger a formal murder investigation by police into the roles of two US officials said to have ordered the strikes. They are Jonathan Banks, former head of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Islamabad station, and John A. Rizzo, the CIA’s former chief lawyer. Mr Akbar and his staff have already gathered further testimony which has yet to be filed.

‘We have statements from a further 82 victims’ families relating to more than 30 drone strikes,’ he said. ‘This is their only hope of justice.’

In the first case, which has already been heard by a court in Islamabad, judgment is expected imminently. If the judge grants Mr Akbar’s petition,  an international arrest warrant will be issued via Interpol against the  two Americans.

The second case is being heard in the city of Peshawar. In it, Mr Akbar and the families of drone victims who are civilians are seeking a ruling that further strikes in Pakistani airspace should be viewed as ‘acts of war’.

They argue that means the Pakistan Air Force should try to shoot down the drones and that the government should sever diplomatic relations with the US and launch murder inquiries against those responsible.

According to a report last month by academics at Stanford and New York universities, between 2,562 and 3,325 people have been killed since the strikes in Pakistan began in 2004.

The report said of those, up to  881 were civilians, including 176  children. Only 41 people who had  died had been confirmed as ‘high-value’ terrorist targets.

Getting at the truth is difficult because the tribal regions along the frontier are closed to journalists. US security officials continue to claim that almost all those killed are militants who use bases in Pakistan to launch attacks on Western forces across the border in Afghanistan.

In his only acknowledgement that the US has ever launched such attacks at all, President Barack Obama said in January: ‘This is a targeted, focused effort at people who are on a list of active terrorists, who are trying to go in and harm Americans.’

But behind the dry legal papers seen by The Mail on Sunday lies the most detailed investigation into  individual strikes that has yet been  carried out. It suggests that the US President was mistaken.

Missile attacks in in Pakistan have had devastating affects, the dossier revealed

The plaintiff in the Islamabad case is Karim Khan, 45, a journalist and translator with two masters’ degrees, whose family comes from the village of Machi Khel in the tribal region of North Waziristan.

His eldest son, Zahinullah, 18, and his brother, Asif Iqbal, 35, were killed by a Hellfire missile fired from a Predator drone that struck the  family’s guest dining room at about 9.30pm on New Year’s Eve, 2009.

Asif had changed his surname because he loved to recite Iqbal,  Pakistan’s national poet, and Mr Khan said: ‘We are an educated family.  My uncle is a hospital doctor in  Islamabad, and we all work in professions such as teaching.

‘We have never had anything to do with militants or terrorists, and for that reason I always assumed we would be safe.’

Mr Khan said: ‘Zahinullah, who had been studying in Islamabad, had returned to the village to work his way through college, taking a part-time job as a school caretaker.

‘He was a quiet boy and studious – always in the top group of his class.’ Zahinullah also liked football, cricket and hunting partridges.

Asif, he added, was an English teacher and had spent several years taking further courses to improve his qualifications while already in work.

Mr Khan said: ‘He was my kid brother. We used to have a laugh, tell jokes.’ His first child was less than a year old when Asif was killed.

Included in the legal dossier are documents that corroborate Asif and Zahinulla’s educational and employment records, as well as their death certificates. Killed alongside them was Khaliq Dad, a stonemason who was staying with the family while he worked on a local mosque.

Mr Khan, who had been working for a TV station in Islamabad, said he was given the news of their deaths in a 2am phone call from a cousin.

Drones have caused untold damage, and the dossier reveals just how devastating they have been for families

‘I called a friend who had a car and we started driving through the night to get back to the village,’ he said. ‘It was a terrible journey. I was shocked,  grieving, angry, like anyone who had lost their loved ones.’

He got home soon after dawn and describes his return ‘like entering a village of the dead – it was so quiet.  There was a crowd gathered outside the compound but nowhere for them to sit because the guest rooms had been destroyed’.

Zahinullah, Mr Khan discovered, had been killed instantly, but despite his horrific injuries, Asif had survived long enough to be taken to a nearby hospital. However, he died during the night.

‘We always bury people quickly in our culture. The funeral was at three o’clock that afternoon, and more than 1,000 people came,’ Mr Khan said. ‘Zahinullah had a wound on the side of his face and his body was crushed and charred. I am told the people who push the buttons to  fire the missiles call these strikes “bug-splats”.

‘It is beyond my imagination how they can lack all mercy and compassion, and carry on doing this for years. They are not human beings.’

Mr Khan found Mr Akbar through a friend who had attended lectures he gave at an Islamabad university. In 2010, he filed a criminal complaint – known as a first information report – to police naming  Mr Banks. However, they took no action, therefore triggering the  lawsuit – a judicial review of that failure to act.

If the judge finds in favour of  Mr Khan, his decision cannot be appealed, thus making the full criminal inquiry and Interpol warrants inevitable.

According to the legal claim, someone from the Pakistan CIA network led by Mr Banks – who left Pakistan in 2010 – targeted the Khan family and guided the Hellfire missile by throwing a GPS homing device into their compound.

A senior CIA officer said: ‘We do not discuss active operations or  allegations against specific individuals.’

Mr Rizzo is named because of  an interview he gave to a US reporter after he retired as CIA General Counsel last year. In it, he boasted that he had personally authorised every drone strike in which America’s enemies were ‘hunted down and blown to bits’.

He added: ‘It’s basically a hit-list .  .  . The Predator is the weapon of choice, but it could also be someone putting a bullet in your head.’

Last night a senior Pakistani  security official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that Pakistan’s own intelligence agency, the ISI, has always been excluded by the CIA from choosing drone  targets.

‘They insist on using their own networks, paying their own informants. Dollars can be very persuasive,’ said the official.

He claimed the intelligence behind drone strikes was often seriously flawed. As a result, ‘they are causing the loss of innocent lives’.

But even this, he added, was not  as objectionable as the so-called ‘signature strikes’ – when a drone operator, sitting at a computer screen thousands of miles away in Nevada, selects a target because he thinks the drone camera has spotted something suspicious.

He said: ‘It could be a vehicle  containing armed men heading towards the border, and the operator thinks, “Let’s get them before they get there,” without any idea of who they are.

‘It could also just be people sitting together. In the frontier region, every male is armed but it doesn’t mean they are militants.’

One such signature strike killed more than 40 people in Datta Khel in North Waziristan on March 17 last year. The victims, Mr Akbar’s dossier makes clear, had gathered for a jirga – a tribal meeting – in order to discuss a dispute between two clans over the division of royalties from a chromite mine.

Some of the most horrifying testimony comes from Khalil Khan, the son of Malik Haji Babat, a tribal leader and police officer. ‘My father was not a terrorist. He was not an enemy of the United States,’ Khalil’s legal statement says. ‘He was a hard-working and upstanding citizen, the type of person others looked up to and aspired to be like.’

Khalil, 32, last saw his father three hours before his death, when he left for a business meeting in a nearby town. Informed his father had been killed, Khalil hurried to the scene.

‘What I saw when I got off the bus at Datta Khel was horrible,’ he said. ‘I immediately saw flames and women and children were saying there had been a drone strike. The fires spread after the strike.

‘I went to the location where the jirga had been held. The situation was really very bad. There were still people lying around injured.

‘The tribal elders who had been killed could not be identified because there were body parts strewn about. The smell was awful. I just collected the pieces that I believed belonged to my father and placed them in a small coffin.’

Khalil said that as a police officer, his father had earned a good salary, on which he supported his family. Khalil has considered returning to the Gulf, where he worked for 14 years, but ‘because of the frequency of drones I am concerned to leave my family’.

He added that schools in the area were empty because ‘parents are afraid their children will be hit by  a missile’.

In another statement – one of 13 taken by Mr Akbar concerning the Datta Khel strike – driver Ahmed Jan, 52, describes the moment the missile hit: ‘We were in the middle of our discussion and I was thrown about 24ft from where I was sitting. I was knocked unconscious. When I awoke, I saw many individuals who were injured or dead.

‘I have lost the use of one of my feet and have a rod inserted because of the injuries. It is so painful for me to walk. There are scars on my face because I had to have an operation on my nose when it would not stop bleeding.’

Mr Jan says he has spent £3,600 on medical treatment but ‘I have never been offered compensation of any kind .  .  . I do not know why this jirga was targeted. I am a malik [elder] of my tribe and therefore a government servant. We were not doing anything wrong or illegal.’

Another survivor was Mohammed Noor, 27, a stonemason, who attended the jirga with his uncle and his cousin, both of whom were killed. ‘The parts of their bodies had to be collected first. These parts were all we had of them,’ he said.

Mr Akbar said that fighting back through the courts was the only way ‘to solve the larger problem’ of the ongoing terrorist conflict.

‘It is the only way to break the cycle of violence,’ he said. ‘If we want to change the people of Waziristan, we first have to show them that we respect the rule of law.’

A senior CIA officer said: ‘We do not discuss active operations or  allegations against specific individuals.’ A White House source last night declined to comment.

In the absence of any response from Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar and Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto regarding their ALLEGED ROMANCE , an India media outlet on Wednesday came up with new claim that Hina’s millionaire husband Firoze Gulzar has officially moved an application seeking her phone call details.

A Bangaldeshi tabloid published a story, claiming that Bilawal was deeply in love with Hina, adding that  both of them have planned to leave Pakistan and settle in Switzerland post their union.

Zeenews said in a report that although officials in Pakistan had denied the affair, reports confirmed that Hina’s husband had submitted an application with Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) for full call details of two “suspected” numbers.

ZEE NEWS REPORT

Islamabad: Giving credence to the rumoured romance between Bilawal Bhutto and foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar, reports claimed on Wednesday that Hina’s millionaire husband Firoze Gulzar has officially moved an application seeking Hina’s phone call details.

The love affair, that had got all of Pakistan talking in hushed tones for weeks, came out in the public after a Bangaldeshi tabloid published a story with intimate details about the relationship.

The tabloid claimed that Bilawal was deeply in love with Hina, who is 11 years older than him. Both of them have planned to leave Pakistan and settle in Switzerland post their union, the report said.

Although officials in Pakistan have denied the affair, reports have confirmed that Hina’s husband has submitted an application with Federal Investigation Agency for full call details of two “suspected” numbers.

Bangladeshi tabloid The Blitz had claimed that President Asif Ali Zardari is vehemently opposed to Bilawal’s keenness to enter into marital relations with Khar, who is already married and is mother of two children. Zardari fears that such a move by his son will not only jeopardize Bilawal’s political career but also spell political doom for the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

Hina Rabbani Khar, is poised to end her marriage with millionaire businessman Firoze Gulzar, from whom she has two daughters named Annaya and Dina, the report added.

The sensational report further claimed that Bilawal and Hina had a secret affair for quite some time. It came to the knowledge of Asif Ali Zardari, when he caught the duo in a compromising situation inside the President’s house, where Bilawal also resides.

In an effort to dissuade Hina from going ahead with the relationship, the report said, Zardari used the government machinery against the business interests of Hina’s husband, but he failed in his endeavour.

The Blitz further claimed that Hina Rabbani Khar sent Bilawal a greeting card on his birthday with hand-written message: “The foundation of our relations is eternal and soon we shall be just ourselves.”

Despite Zardari’s tough stand, Bilawal is said to be adamant on going ahead with his plan to marry Hina. The tabloid claimed that Bilawal has even threatened to resign as President of PPP.

Bilawal told his father that he would settle in Switzerland with his lady love and her daughters, though later he even told his father that, Hina might leave her daughters with her husband after the divorce.

Now the reason revealed why She is still enjoying Ministry.

One of the Western intelligence agencies have romantic relations between youngest foreign minister of Pakistan, Hina Rabbani Khar and Bilawal Bhutto, the son of President Asif Ali Zardari and slain Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. The report even indicated a ‘cold feud’ between the father and the son, following Bilawal’s decision of marrying Hina Rabbani Khar, as she is poised to end her marital relations with millionaire businessman Firoze Gulzar, from whom she has two daughters named Annaya and Dina. Born on November 19, 1977, Hina Rabbani Khar hails from an influential feudal and landowner family and is the daughter of politician and landowner Nur Rabbani Khar and the niece of Ghulam Mustafa Khar, a former Governor of Punjab. The Khar family has roots in the village of Khar Gharbilocated in Kot Adu – a tehsil (subdivision) in Muzaffargarh District in Punjab; and has many land holdings. The Khar family owns an estate that includes fisheries, mango orchards, and sugarcane fields as well as a local steel mill.

After graduating from local high school, Khar attended the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) in 1995, and earned B.Sc. in Economics with cum laude in 1999. The same year, she went to United States to resume her higher studies and attended the post-graduate school of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and subsequently earned a Master’s degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management in 2002.


Hina Rabbani Khar was brought into national prominence and national political arena by Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz in 2004, who publicly appointed her into the Finance ministry. In previous 2002 general elections, she successfully contested and secured the parliamentary constituency of her father, after most members of the family were disqualified. With financial support of her father, she campaigned on a newly founded PML (Q Group) platform against Pakistan Muslim League. After the elections, Khar was elected as a Member of Parliament, representing the NA-177, Muzaffargarh-II constituency in Punjab, a position her father had held previously, but a new law requiring all candidates to hold a university degree meant he could not run that year.

The Guardian wrote, “In deference to local sensibilities about the place of women, her landlord father Noor addressed rallies and glad-handed voters; Hina stayed largely at home, with not even her photo appearing on the posters.” In 2005, she was elevated as the deputy minister of economic affairs and served under Shaukat Aziz. As deputy minister, she dealt extensively with the donor community during the 2005 earthquake that hit Northern Pakistan.


In 2007, she made an unsuccessful attempt to renew her alliance with PML-Q, but the party denied her a ticket platform to campaign for re-election in 2008, she was later invited by the senior members of the Pakistan Peoples Party and successfully campaign for her constituency for a second time. The PPP secured plurality of the votes and formed a left-wing alliance with the Awami National Party, MQM and PML-Q. They nominated and elected Yousaf Raza Gillani as Prime Minister.


It is learnt from the intelligence source that, President Asif Ali Zardari is vehemently opposing his son’s willingness of knotting marital relations with a woman with two children, saying it would not only jeopardize Bilawal’s political career but would also invite political doom for the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). Being aggrieved by his son’s ego and determination in making family with Hina Rabbani Khar, Asif Ali Zardari played key-role behind using country’s intelligence agencies in spreading the scandal about the evasion of electricity bills worth 70 million Rupees by Galaxy Textile Mills, a company owned by Khar’s husband Firoze Gulzar and father-in-law. The media reports also alleged that she and her husband are also among many other beneficiaries of NRO – an ordinance drafted to save corruption money and provide immunity to the corrupt.


At this stage, sensing his father’s aggressive attitude towards Hina Rabbani Khar, Bilawal expressed anger and even threatened of resigning from the post of Presidency of Pakistan People’s Party. He even told Asif Ali Zardari that he would settle in Switzerland with Hina Rabbani Khar and her daughters, though later he even told his father that, Hina might leave her daughters with her husband after the divorce. It may be mentioned here that, Bilawal Bhutto’s mother Benazir Bhutto left a hidden wealth worth a few billion dollars in Switzerland and Bilawal is the legal nominee of all those properties.

The secret affairs between Bilawal Bhutto and Hina Rabbani Khar came to the knowledge of Asif Ali Zardari, when the duo was caught in compromised situation inside the official residence of the President, where his son Bilawal Bhutto also resides. Later, President Zardari collected mobile call records between Bilawal and Hina and found evidences of relations between the two. The relations became much exposed to Asif Ali Zardari, when Hina Rabbani Khar sent Bilawal a greeting card on his birthday on September 21, 2011 with hand-written message stating – “The foundation of our relations is eternal and soon we shall be just ourselves.”

It may be mentioned here that, Bilawal Bhutto is 11 years younger than Hina Rabbani Khar. Earliest this year, Bilawal Bhutto was caught in sex scandal with some unknown females.

This is the end of the 400-meter-long secret tunnel which connects India-Pakistan and was recently unearthed in Jammu & Kashmir. PHOTO:

JAMMU: Indian authorities on Saturday discovered a 400-metre long tunnel, running between India and Pakistan, along the International Border in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir, reported Press Trust of India.

“We have discovered a tunnel running between Pakistan and India in Samba district,” the report quoted Superintendent of Police (SSP) Samba Israr Khan as saying.

The SSP was further quoted as saying that the tunnel was detected after an area caved-in at two or three places due to rains near the Border Security Force’s (BSF) Chillayari Border Out Post (BOP). He added that the tunnel, with a dimension of 3×3 foot, was running between Chillayari BOP and Pakistan’s Numberiyal BOP.

Dug at a depth of 25 foot below the ground level, it was 400 meters long on the Indian side, the SSP said adding “we are confirming whether the tunnel is operational or not.”

The tunnel, which seemed to be freshly constructed, had air supply through a 2 inch pipe, he said adding “we are looking into all aspects.”

Commenting on Pakistan facing a lot of pressure from the militants to infiltrate them into the Indian Territory, the SSP said, “Since it is difficult to push in militants to the Indian side, they decided to set up a tunnel to facilitate infiltration.”

Spies were also providing bogus information regarding Mujahideen camps and their activities to their Indian handlers.
