Rehman Malik! He is national proud of shame who surprisingly has many important positions in Pakistan ‘s politics for last many years as a Pakistani politician, senator, and the current Interior Minister of Pakistan under the Prime Minister Gillani administration.
It was said that he was inducted to FIA at the time of 1980s in some lower cadre job on the request of his father to a serving colonial of his same village.At that time that colonial had no clue what kind of satanic jewel he was inducting in FIA who in future could be minister or even become prime minister of Pakistan.
His sudden rise in FIA( after thoroughly seeing his idiotic gestures and funny personality) shows that what was caliber of administration behind him, giving him all kind of promotions so that he become indispensable director of FIA.During his job his first known victim was his real brother-in-law whom his sister married without the consent of her family on some issue of cast difference.He put the husband of her sister in torture cells which were made in Zia regime for political prisoners and he surely used it in right way for setting his family issues.The matter somehow solved after some agreement with his sister but he showed his talent .
In his job history it is very interesting that Benazir Bhutto appointed Rehman Malik as chief of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) which then launched a secret war against the Taliban supporters in Pakistan, and it was said that it mounted a direct attack on the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). The FIA leadership under Bhutto also angered Taliban supporters because they allowed the extradition of Ramzi Yousef to the US for trial on the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
Now it is Zardari ‘s govt who appointed him interior minister, a ministry standing forefront against Taliban and its supporters and its linked religious organization.At the time of Bhutto , there was hardly a suicidal or terrorist attack in Pakistan but now there is hardly a day when no attack comes to headlines.
Malik village fellows still remember him with very good names when he was in FIA, many people of his village were involved in human smuggling and turned out to be millionaire by human smuggling through fake passports and fully co-operative attitude of FIA people working with or under Rehman malik. He was the firs tcaught by his own team-mate when President Leghari after dismissing Benazir Bhutto in 1996 imprisoned Rehman Malik on unspecified corruption charges, at that time he was the additional Director General FIA .
Later on he was freed and continued his job but couldn’t make an equation with Sharif brothers and got termination letter from Prime minister Nawaz on his 200 page report on corruption of sharif family he then fled to London.
UK or USA are always safe destination for our runaway leaders and govt servants who have a strong repute of corruption in their respective departments or constituencies.Here he was involved in large business ventures, he bought property in expensive areas of England proving that allegation of corruptions were correct on him.
Both Bhutto and Malik had many joint ventures and got famous through many international scams.Among one of those are oil and food scam .It is said that Benazir Bhutto, her nephew Ibrahim Jaafry and ex-FIA chief Rehman Malik t got contract of over US$150 million by giving US$2 million kickbacks to the ousted Iraqi president, Saddam Hussain.Under the recommendations of 623-page UN Report of an Independent Inquiry Committee of Oil for Food Programme for Iraq,Pakistan government had made written request to UAE and USA toto freeze the assets of Bhutto’s two companies — Petroline FZC and Temp Global — and belongings of Asif Ali Zardari in Florida.
Petroline FZC is a Sharjah-based company and former FIA joint director, Rehman Malik, and a nephew of Ms Bhutto, Hassan Ali Jaafry, are the directors of the company.
He established and successfully run a Security consultancy firm in UK namely SHAFFAF LIMITED, duly registered in UK, to provide consultancy in the field of security, anti-terrorism, Aviation security, bank frauds, money laundering and assets tracing worldwide which attained international recognition.
He was also president of DM Digital Network UK which was aided twice by immigration officers and caught illegal immigrants from Pakistan. . He had to claim that he had resigned from this company before his appointment as Adviser/Minister to the Prime Minister for Interior
After having billionaire like career in above UK businesses ,Rehman emerged as the ‘deal broker’ in Benazir-Musharraf reconciliation talks in Abu Dhabi in July 2007.Before the arrival of Bhutto to Pakistan she was in full compliance with Rehman malik in all kinds of political deals with military govt of Musharraf.When the deal was made known as National Reconciliation Ordinance, Malik was the top beneficiary of this pact and real first one who got state protocol from same military govt.All knows he was the chief of the security of Benazir Bhutto when she returned home in 2007.She faced two severe attacks and couldn’t survive in 2nd target shooting under the protection provided to her by the team selected by Rehman Malik.
So soon after the assassination there were many accusation against Rehman Malik for lax security, his blunt lies and his absence from the scene of attack on Bhutto.
The process of terrorism is still continued in his regime with some low pace but Under his ministerial regime the popular events of terrorism attacks were
- Attack on FIA buildings
- Attacks on Shia processions
- Killing of Shanshah, other witness of Bhutto’s murder and PPP die-hard worker
- Attack on GHQ
- Attacks on popular shrines of Pakistan.
- Killing of two important political figures of PPP Salman Taseer and Shabaz Bahtti, his party in his jurisdiction Islamabad.
- Non stop target killing in Karachi under his talented leadership.
It was not once or twice but many times he was publicly humiliated by common people or victims of terrorism but his quality of obstinacy never let him to feel degraded or ashamed but always looks firm on his obstinate stand that he is doing extra ordinary job.
One of Baloch leaders has already claimed about him like that:
‘Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik, the civilian face of the country’s powerful military establishment is a continuation of the former dictator General Pervez Musharraf’s policies in Baluchistan. He is the one who sanctioned and devised the policies of empowering Frontier Corp (FC), the Pakistani paramilitary, in Baluchistan involved in enforced disappearances and the ‘kill and dump’ activities.
So whether here is disturb area of Punjab or jurisdiction of Islamabad or one can check his repute in highly disturbed provinces of KPK or Baluchistan, people remember him with bad repute and worst performance.
He is real punishment for country and its citizens who have left on option but to accept him and present uncertain security conditions is real sign that his presence is like a punishment for his party people and whole nation.
