Ali Dayan Hasan is a former employee of the Dawn Media Group in Pakistan, which has published his ambiguous article. He was a colleague of Editor Dawn Zaffar Abbas, who has been accused of working for the ISI and being involved in a plot to kill Habib R. Sulemani for writing a novel, The Terrorland, which discusses the nexus between a group of journalists and secret agencies.
As a researcher of the Human Rights Watch, Mr. Hasan has kept silent over the continuing torture to Mr. Sulemani and his family members for the last four months. However, now he has come out with this controversial article in the controversial newspaper under a controversial editor!!! What Mr. Hasan really wants to say in this ‘crafty’ article?
1) Pakistan's intelligence and law-enforcement agencies are engaged in 'abusive' practices at the behest or pressure from Britain, the US and other players in the fight against the Taliban and Al Qaeda?
2) The Pakistani agencies are puppets in the hands of foreign players?
3) Mr. Hasan, at the behest of the accused editor, wants to justify the criminal acts of our own agencies?
4) Or there is something else…?
The Human Rights Watch should investigate the matter for its global reputation.
