The recent allegations by CIA, RAW and Afghanistan on ISI for its involvement in Afghanistan and supporting Taliban are based on false notions. Instead of blaming ISI, these notorious agencies should look into their own past and present. They are the main culprits who are playing havoc with the peace and stability of the world. International neutral observes should understand that ISI is highly professional and able intelligence agency. It has nothing to do with these types of malpractices. The main goal of maligning ISI and Pakistan is to exert pressure on Pakistan, and ask it to do more in War on Terror. The world community instead of blame game should support ISI, only then we can win against Extremism and Terrorism.
Pakistan is located at a very strategic location in South Asia. Some Western analysts call it a geographical pivot of the world. Pakistan shares long borders with two hostile neighbors Afghanistan and India. Both countries along with America and Israel have always played havoc with the safety and security of Pakistan. These threats and insecurity has aroused especially after the US War on Terror. Right now Pakistan is facing growing insurgency, terrorism, suicide bombings, attacks on security forces and internal strife. All these threats are countered and eliminated by our Inter Services Intelligence (ISI); according to ex DG ISI General ® Hameed Gul and DG ISPR Maj Gen Athar Abbas, ISI is the “first line of defense of Pakistan” against any foreign aggression or threat. There are constant efforts by our enemy states to weaken ISI and for that purpose they put obscure accusations against ISI. Now coming to the point that is threats and allegations on our Intelligence Agency (ISI) for supporting and plotting operations against Afghans, Indians and Americans in Afghanistan. All these allegations are based on false fallacies. There is no credible or concrete evidence of ISI’s involvement against any country. ISI is a highly professional organization. It knows very well about its role and duties, and it is obvious that it will not indulge itself in any manner against the interests of the country. Focus of the study will be to highlight the overt and covert operations of CIA, MOSSAD and RAW around the world, and how they have affected the overall security of Pakistan.
ISI’s Origin and Role
ISI (Inter Services Intelligence) was founded by a British Army officer Major General R Cawthome in 1948. The main goal of ISI is to safeguard the country mainly from external and internal threats, counter intelligence while playing a major role in the defense of the country. ISI is one of the best organizations in the world both operationally and tactically, it has always played an important and responsible role in the world’s peace and stability. ISI’s role in Afghan Jihad against Soviets can never be ruled out. Whole world condemned the Soviets incursion into Afghanistan, it was ISI which with the support of other countries helped Afghanistan to free itself from Soviet occupation and live as a sovereign and independent state. ISI is a highly professional organization and it works under the most sophisticated and able command and control system of GHQ. Role of ISI against the war against terrorism is also appreciable; it is ISI that has captured more than 700 militants including high profile Al-Qaeda leaders. No other intelligence agency in the world has done this much effort in war against terrorism. According to Al Qaeda’s Leader Sheikh Yazid in an interview, “Pakistan has inflicted huge damage on Al Qaeda more than any other country in the world”. I think this is a clear indication that an enemy accepts the potential and operational capabilities of ISI. Now a days a propaganda by the Western Media, Americans, Afghans and Indians have taken place in which they are constantly blaming ISI for every malpractice in Afghanistan or in India.
