In the recent weeks Dr. Shahid Masood’s Meray Mutabiq Show has been very revealing, barely a week back Dr. Masood had pulled the cart out of the bag when he brought Steel Mills Ex-Chairman to expose the corruption of Shaukat Aziz, but today (June 2nd) he was able to pull yet another cat out of the bag bringing Lt. General (r) Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani the ex Core Commander of Rawalpindi the famous 111 Brigade, which has generally been the historic the stronghold of power in Pakistan.
The two hour casual discussion was far more revealing then ever imaginable where the ex-army man talks about issues regarding the Coop of 1999, Kargil issue, 9/11 events and the negotiations with the US, the missing persons issues, Lal Masjid incident where he confirmed the reports that the Army used Phosphorus Grenades on Children. Simply said the show was explosive and revealing.
Watch the two part online video on Pakistan First (will update the post once the video is available)
Dramatics aside, one must step back to evaluate this interview more pragmatically, there is no way that Lt. General (r) Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani appeared on Geo without the explicit permission of the Chief of Army Staff General Kiyani and the knowledge of ISI and ISPR. This move could very well be a chain link to pressurize Musharraf and open the door for the sitting COAS to walk up to Musharraf and tell him to [finally] leave us alone.
The country has been abuzz with speculations of a Musharraf exit but nothing has yet transpired, could this be the turning point or is this just another distractor [keep in mind that the constitutional package is in circulation and the Lawyers are also planning the Long March on 10th June] there are definite signs of it being a carefully timed and planned move, it is sure to damage Musharraf tremendously but it may also have some disastrous repercussions on other issues as well
