Hussain Haqqani started his concentration in journalism in high school he joined Karachi university. Haqqani started his political career at the University of Karachi, he joined Islami Jamiat Talba; the political party for students after some time he became President of the student union as well. Haqqani worked as a journalist and then he served as political sectary to Nawaz Shariff and spokesperson for Benazir Bhutto as well, he was later expelled for criticisms against the government of Pervaiz Musharraf and then he used to teach IR at Boston University. Haqqani served and manage a partnership of two countries well when both were facing and fighting with terrorism.
In a recent article published in The Washington, Post Haqqani admitted that he assisted CIA operatives in the killing of the globally wanted terrorist Osama Bin Laden. Haqqani was granted powers to evade concerned authorities in this regard. Haqqani was only permitted to provide information to the Prime Minister’s Office.
He addressed “Among the security establishment’s grievances against me was the charge that I had facilitated the presence of large numbers of CIA operatives who helped track down bin Laden without the knowledge of Pakistan’s army — even though I had acted under the authorization of Pakistan’s elected civilian leader”.
Haqqani was referring to the president of that time Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani as his “civilian leaders.” It’s amazing to see that everyone has loaded questions to ask Haqqani and claim him as a traitor but why the questions like aren’t answered yet:
*How Taliban leaders were issued official passports and CNICs and able to travel in and out of Pakistan without detection.
*Admission of Sartaj Aziz that Pakistan hosts Taliban leadership.
*Statement of former DG-ISI that it is ‘probable’ ISI knew Osama bin Laden was living in Pakistan.
These are some random questions and queries that every person in this nation would like to be addressed on. Scandalizing past issues and dragging it until the things break down is old strategies of the Pakistani government. This issue could be solved within the officials. On the other hand another allegation that minister stated, “The issues like granting visa to US nationals from Washington and Dubai, operation to kill Osama Bin Laden and killing our people by US agents needs threadbare and an open probe in presence of national media so that such issues are .settle for once and for ever,”
According to the records, this document was released a few days after Haqqani’s claim. Firstly he did not say if had issued visas without informing the government but did state that he had consulted security personnel at the embassy before approving the applications. Secondly, he also stated that the relationships he forged with members of Obama’s campaign team led to closer cooperation between Pakistan and the United States in fighting terrorism over the 31/2 years while he served as ambassador. And lastly, if things were on record how can the government be so quiet if the outsiders are forcing themselves into Pakistan, and why there were no actions and inquiry done by the Pakistan Army? And if there was no record so isn’t it government officials duty to keep a check on such activities because this proves that our security systems are highly risked
