Lieutenant General (retd) Asad Durrani, former chief of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI),is being summoned to GHQW for stating various topics against the facts in a book he co-authored with former chief of Indian RAW agency.
The military sources informed Geo News on Friday that Durrani was being summoned to the General Headquarters (GHQ) for clearing his position. They said that the former spy chief would have to clear his position over a violation of the military’s code of conduct. The Pakistani military has expressed reservations over the book co-written by him.
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.
Earlier, former premier 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 criticised 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.”
