ISLAMABAD: Controversy over the appointment of Pakistan’s chief of Interservice Intelligence (ISI) continues despite repeated claims by the government that the country’s civilian and military leaders were on the same page regarding the issue.
“The problem is that every hour someone, to get fame, twists a few words and uploads them to Twitter. At this time, the process has started. There is no conflict between the army and the government. We are all on the same page, ”Pakistani Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Thursday. He stated that a specific section, which wants to play in this, has been defeated.
The defense ministry, to be more specific, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa had announced the replacement of the outgoing spy chief, Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed, by the commander of the Karachi Corps, Lieutenant General Nadeem Ahmed Anjum, the October 6th. was not consulted on the matter.
Since Gen Bajwa’s decision, some of the cabinet members had started to claim that it was the prime minister’s prerogative to make an appointment of the head of the ISI. Amir Dogar, one of Khan’s top aides, had recently claimed that the prime minister wanted to retain Hameed as his head of the ISI.
Following the reported stalemate between civilian and military leaders on the issue, the prime minister’s office received a summary on Wednesday with the names of three candidates and Khan, as a rule, has to choose one of them or pick someone else for him. ISI chief position. .
A day earlier, the Information Minister had said that the appointment issue was resolved after a lengthy meeting between Khan and Bajwa.
Hours later, the media quoted one of the federal ministers as saying that the prime minister wanted to interview the officials who were shortlisted for the post of ISI director general.
Responding to the minister’s claim, the Information Minister said that it was a convention for the prime minister to meet with the candidates before appointments were made to key positions such as ISI chief. “Now it is said that the prime minister will conduct interviews for the new head of the ISI,” he said.
In response to a question about when the government would notify the new head of the ISI, the assistant prime minister in political communication, Shahbaz Gill, who was accompanying the information minister, said: “Don’t take this so urgently. It’s serious business. ”
He said the Information Minister would share the news with the media as soon as the prime minister makes a decision and urged the media to refrain from sensationalizing national affairs.
The government’s claim that the prime minister received a brief for the appointment of the new spymaster has led netizens to mock Prime Minister Khan, who had previously said he wanted Hameed to continue his work. One of the posts that was frequently shared on social media groups read: “The prime minister will nominate the next ISI chief from a list of three names recommended by the army chief of staff. The three names recommended by Gen Bajwa are Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmed Anjum, Lt Gen Nadeem A Anjum and Lt Gen NA Anjum. ”
