The month of August 2009 witnessed a dubious character from the past who had worked in the intelligence apparatus of Pakistan making, on every TV Channel of Pakistan, so-called and unwarranted revelations galore about important political and other events of the eighties and nineties. If those revelations were to go unchallenged the political history of Pakistan would eventually be wrongly interpreted by the historians of the foreseeable future. It is widely suspected that the campaign launched by the dubious intelligence characters of the past was an orchestrated one for sinister purposes.
Masood Sharif Khan Khattak, a former Director General Intelligence Bureau (DG IB) from the era in question, was an eye witness to the events of the time period that was being distorted by dubious characters. His name figured in many ways in all the discussions taking place on various TV Channels. Thus, the TV channels of Pakistan had wanted to have his views on different matters. Initially, he desisted from becoming a part to the raging controversies. But after a lot of the recent history had been distorted and had stunned the people of Pakistan Masood Sharif Khan Khattak agreed to give a comprehensive interview to GEO TV Program’s renowned host Mr Salim Safi in order to put matters in their true perspective.
The video is the result of that interview which covers all the events of the eighties and nineties that were put in doubt by dubious characters being used in a manipulated campaign meant to hurt the Pakistani Military and Intelligence Establishment and thus weaken Pakistan internally by causing unwarranted fissures.
The point that must be made is that while Masood Sharif Khan Khattak has touched upon all the thorny and heavily contested issues not a single person, organization, political party or any other quarter has repudiated anything said by Masood Sharif Khan Khattak in this interview after the telecast.
Happy viewing and it is hoped you will leave us your comments and opinions.

Masood Sharif Khan Khattak on Brigadier Imtiaz Revelation.
Check out the Dawn News interview, it’s in English and somewhat brushes upon the same topic a little…
An excellent interview that fades away many doubts in mind about intelligence agencies..that it’s not inteligence agencies that creates disturbance…but.. few people that use power for evil purposes…if we have few more ppl like Masood Shahirf Khan Khattak in Intelligence agnecies..then no doubt..we will have a Peaceful & Developed Pakistan soon,inshAllah.
An excellent interview that reminds us that once we
had an amazing,intelligent,intellectual,charismatic leader like Benazir Bhutto shaheed who took birth in a very wrong country !!!
An excellent interview that gives us a hope….that we still have patriotic people like Masood Shairf Khan Khattak and that we should support such people to get rid of evil-bullies around.
@Salim Safi(interviewer)… Pres Zardari didn’t ask for forgiveness from anyone…he said:
“let’s forgive eachother’s pasts for RECONCIALTION for a BETTER PAKISTAN”.
