Islamabad: Though Hussain Haqqani had denied that he did not have power to issue visas to the United Sates citizens, however, Baaghi.tv received the letter which clearly proves that Haqqani was solely authorized by PPP’s government to issue and extend dubious visas.
The letter received read that the then Prime Minister of Pakistan, Yousuf Raza Gillani, empowered him to issue visas valid upto one year, without consulting or taking permission from the concerned authorities.
The letter received totally nullifies Haqqani’s statement of not having such authority to issue visas to any one. Not only he, Zaradri, the former president and co-chairman of PPP also repeated the same several times. Such statements were continuously being aired after the pressure raised against Pakistan Peoples Party and Haqqani who were being called traitors on solid grounds.
The solid ground was Haqqani’s own article published in Washington’s post in which he admitted to providing US secret agencies’ personnel access in Pakistan.
He said, his acts during PPP regime helped the US secret service to track al-Qaeeda chief Osama bin Laden in Abbotabad without the knowledge of Pakistan military.
“In November 2011, I was forced to resign as ambassador after Pakistan’s military-intelligence apparatus gained the upper hand in the country’s perennial power struggle. Among the security establishment’s grievances against me was the charge that I had faciliated 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 leaders,” Haqqani’s article reads, published in Washington Post.
After the story became the talk of the town, Haqqani said he did not issue visas as it was not the part of ambassador’s job. Zardari also repeated the same.
The well known and so called respected opposition leader Mr. khurshid Shah also declared Haqqani’s letter just an attempt to gain the attention of Trump’s administration. Not only this, he called him traitor to save his party’s face.
But the letter which, we, the BAAGHI.tv received through confirmed and authorized sources clearly shows that Haqqani was involved in this act and the PPP’s government was also well informed about it as it’s own PM authorized the envoy regarding this new job to write new stories of traitors in Pakistani nation’s chequered history.
