so dont try to bring up your imaginative BS here which has no weight .
It is possible that intelligence agencies assassinated him
I feel that ISI is slowly turning into SAVAK.
Islamic Republic of Pakistan will soon see a revolution to remove the corrupt and puppet Government and the higher military brass. I just hope it is not an islamic lunatic group that takes it's place like Iran.
This is very weak motive to implicate the ISI.
The ISI may have indeed contacted him, and might have even pressured him, but that does not mean they killed him. A lot of high profile journalists would be dead now if the ISI intended to kill every man critical of the military.
Anyone remember poor Daniel Pearl? People were saying it was ISI then as well. I personally think the guy was taken out by militants, afraid of him busting their operations.
The quote in my signature rings true once again: Life in Pakistan, circa 2011: Go to bed to bad news. Wake up to bad news. Repeat.
I was shocked to hear that he had died. I feel unfortunately we'll never know what exactly happened and even if we do, the murderer/murderers will never be brought to justice.
If the terrorists realized that their network was being busted, those who had been in contact with Saleem would want to neutralize him.
Then again, as the Co Imam and Khwaja abductions and killings show, the TTP/AQ do not always act rationally or with clear motive.
My guess is that Saleem was able to locate the Al Qaeda/Terrorists cell which is operating in our security establishment. He probably had a verifiable source and names of those who are complicit in attacks against the state of Pakistan. I am very sure that some higher ups are a part of this terrorist cell that might have been exposed by him.
To keep their identity under wrap, the militants and even members who are a part of this cell who are found in the security establishment killed Saleem before any damage could occur.
It might not necessarily be ISI but members who are affiliated with Al Qaeda who killed him and in the process all blame will fall upon ISI.
Just see how the media is/will react(ing) against the military establishment now.
One thing is for sure, the terrorists and their sympathizers are scared, times running out for them I suppose.
