Alee, it is very important that you research and understand your view points on your nation and how our national agencies/departments are working. It is always important to do so, contrary to a few comments here, to not know such things is irresponsible, shows a lack of self-care and self-preservation. Your question is a valid one and you should actively read up and maintain view points/opinions on key Pakistani issues.
We are always ambassadors of Pakistan, what we say and do have direct effects on our country, our community and one another let alone people of other affiliations.
Also, as a side note, you should try to learn and know these points for yourself, not to win petty arguments with strangers especially those with an ''angle'', bias or stirring the pot; it is always good to have a reply. Know them because you are a Pakistani and its your job to always be an ambassador of Pakistan no matter who you are. Also, there is right time to discuss and a wrong time to discuss, and I do agree it very important to silent critics at times, this is something we all should be doing. Its also important to know and keep the spirit alive in our hearts, we dont need to show it on our sleeves except maybe on Pakistan Day and on obvious important occasions
In fact, come to think of it, we should ALL try to learn as much as we can about aspects of Pakistan.
Best of luck in your endeavour!
a few points about your que:
ISI is one of the if not the best intelligence agencies in the world; hence the continued negative propoganda and attempts to negate it. (The CIA worked alongside the ISA during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and very well how well developed and capable it is)
British, German, Russian, Egyptian, Jordanian, Chinese, Iranian even Israel (Mossad) have all given praises to operative capacity of the ISI.
This intelligence agency, single handedly trained and coordinated the downfall of the then world power Soviet Union without using a ''modern army''.
It is facing a tremendous callenge today with the concerted efforts of several intelligence agencies and terrorist organizations who use human sacrifices/Suicide attacks to kill and maim innocent men, women and children. Such attacks are inherently difficult and would bring any intelligence agency let alone society to a standstill. Pakistan and her people are resilient and are overcoming these hurdles. It is important for us to stand by the ISI in this time of need.
So why all the fuss about ISI, if they can take down the largest country in the world and train/coordinate a refugees to combat a professionally trained army and succeed... some people could have a problem with that.
Pakistan as an agricultural based country is still at par statistically with some of the poorest countries in the world and is a developing nation that is still entering the modern industrial era yet manages to surprise everyone despite being designated a ''poor'' country.
The ISI is at the forefront and protects the interest of Pakistan in all spheres, there is an active campaign to spread ''rumors'', conspiracy theories and propoganda against it, but pay no attention to it, the fact that Pakistan's enemies are doing this, shows that they are desperate, and that the ISI is doing its job well. The experience, expertise, training and operational capability of Pakistan's intelligence agency puts it in a class of its own with few comparisons.
The ISI has trained and worked alongside many of the worlds big intelligence agencies and they know exactly what they are dealing with. There is no comparison in the region. They are uncovering the layers of indian sponsoring of terrorist groups like the Taliban (TTP) and other murderous militas via their sponsors in the indian consulates along our border and RAW centres in india itself. Their exposing of the indian currency, operative plans, indian gurkha advisers, intercepted communications and logistical devices, indian origin weoponry in the hands of the Taliban and other terrorist groups in Balochistan. They are also working to uncover the various layers of espionage and double agents working along the Afghan frontier in doing so protecting to the lives of the Pakistani, American, ISAF and Afghan civilians. It seems the Great Game has been afoot again and this time its more complicated. We need to keep our vigil.
Also, like any functionary, there will be success stories and there may also be unsuccessful stories. You should keep that in mind with any research and always read things with ''a grain of salt''. So while the ISI record may not be flawless, in comparison to world intelligence agencies it is definately in the top ranks, and within the region, there is no organization that even come close to it.
Good luck in your endeavour
