REHMAN MALIK’S GHADARI & NAWAZ SHARIF’S MEMORY LOSS: Pakistan never responded to US efforts for repatriation of Dr Aafia to Pakistan: Diplomatic Sources

American diplomatic sources informed that in the past US had contacted number of times with the government of Pakistan for repatriation of Dr Afia Siddiqui to Pakistan but never receive any response adding that Dr Aafia could be returned to Pakistan if Pakistan signs Int’l prisoners’ agreement for exchange of Dr Aafia. According to a private TV channel report, US Diplomatic sources had informed government of Pakistan after court’s verdict in February 2010 that repatriation of Dr Aafia to Pakistan was possible and for the first time Interior Minister Rehman Malik was contacted that if Pakistan signed world agreement for prisoners exchange then it could be decided, how Dr Afia could be repatriated to Pakistan, however, government of Pakistan didn’t respond from April 2010 to July 2010 to solve the issue. It is also worth mentioning that a visiting American delegate that had arrived for strategic dialogues in month of July had also indicated that Dr Aafia could be repatriated to Pakistan. American Diplomatic sources clarified that if till now Dr Afia had not been handed over to Pakistan and even in future it didn’t happen-government of Pakistan would be responsible for it. When Interior Minister Rehman Malik was contacted he stated that the government had done its best to get Dr Aafia back from American detention, however foreign office has been responsible to sign world prisoners exchange agreement.

Federal Investigative Agency

Before independence, the security forces of British India were primarily concerned with the maintenance of law and order but were also called on to perform duties in support of the political interests of the government. The duties of the police officer in a formal sense were those of police the world over: executing orders and warrants; collecting and communicating upward intelligence concerning public order; preventing crime; and detecting, apprehending, and arresting criminals. These duties were specified in Article 23 of the Indian Police Act of 1861, which (together with revisions dating from 1888 and the Police Rules of 1934), is still the basic document for police activity in Pakistan.


The overall organization of the police forces remained much the same after partition. Except for centrally administered territories and tribal territories in the north and northwest, basic law and order responsibilities have been carried out by the four provincial governments. The central government has controlled a series of specialized police agencies, including the Federal Investigative Agency, railroad and airport police forces, an anticorruption task force, and various paramilitary organizations such as the Rangers, constabulary forces, and the Frontier Corps.

Benazir Bhutto appointed Rehman Malik as chief of the Federal Investigation Agency which then launched a secret war against the Islamists, which amounted to a direct attack on the ISI. The Pakistani military was equally dismayed by reports of FIA contacts with the Israeli secret service, the MOSSAD, to investigate Islamist terrorists. The FIA leadership under Bhutto also angered Islamist elements because they allowed the extradited Ramzi Yousaf to the US for trial on the New York Trade Centre Bombing. One of the first acts of President Leghari after dismissing Benazir Bhutto on 05 November 1996 was to imprison the Ghulam Asghar, head of FIA, suspended on non specified corruption charges, and Rehman Malik, Addl. Director General FIA, was also arrested.

The Federal Investigation Agency conducts the investigations on receiving reports of corruption, either through the P.M.’s Accountability and Coordination Cell or directly from the public. After the investigations, the cases are referred to the Chief Ehtesab Commissioner for trial by the Ehtesab courts. However, the Chief Ehtesab Commissioner, Mr Mujaddad Ali Mirza, has complained that the Federal Investigation Authority and the Anti-Corruption Police have failed to cooperate with the Commission.

Need Justice for Furrukh Shan Alam. The Killer is Walking Free since August, 2011

Need Justice for Furrukh Shan Alam. The Killer is Walking Free since August, 2011 

Justice for Furrukh Shan Alam

The murderer
, Bruce Fuller has been walking free since August 10, 2011 and has yet to be charged or arrested. The case has since been under investigation by the Maitland Police Department and the District Attorney of Orange County of Florida. The grieving parents and other family members are very upset at the slow pace of investigation. They want to bring the killer to justice as soon as possible in order to bring some peace and closure in their life. The only way to expedite the process is by filing a Petition signed by at least 2,000 people. 1,224 signatures have been collected. However, 800 more signatures are still needed. Let’s all try to bring closure expeditiously to a horrible chapter in the life of the Alams. Please Click here to sign a petition for justice for Furrukh Shan Alam. Your prompt attention and immediate action to resolve this miserable situation will be greatly appreciated. Please do me a very big favor and also forward this email to all your friends, other family members and acquaintances for a quick resolution in this matter. Thank you so very much for your great humanitarian gesture. May Allah bless you all.A tragedy had struck the happy family of Mahfooz and Farzana Alam on August 10, 2011 when their young son, Furrukh Shan Alam was shot to death in a Florida home during a business trip. Furrukh S. Alam was unarmed and the murder weapon belonged to the murderer, Bruce Fuller who called the police and admitted shooting and killing Furrukh Alam, but in self defense. There were no eye witnesses. Shortly after, the body of Furrukh Alam was brought and laid to rest in California.

Personally I know Mahfooz Alam in Los Angeles since the late sixties. He has been one of the most senior and a very active member of the Muslim community in Southern California. His wife Farzana and my deceased wife, Shahana had attended the same college in Karachi, Pakistan. I remember distinctly,  the entire Alam family was very happy at the Valima reception of Furrukh Alam. Especially, Br Mahfooz Alam was jubilant at the fact that the name of his daughter in law is the same as his wife, Farzana. He told me and Shahana,”When I call Farzana aloud at home, both my wife and my daughter in law come running to help me out. I am so lucky.” May Almighty Allah bring peace and justice to the Alam family very soon. Ameen!
