Gen Faiz in Kabul: “Don’t worry, everything will be okay”. General Faiz talking to a media person. DG ISI Lt Gen Faiz Hameed reached Kabul a few days after the Afghan capital was conquered by the Taliban.
He said on Saturday that “everything will be okay” in Afghanistan as he arrived in Kabul on what sources said was a day-long trip related to the security of the region.
“What do you hope is going to happen now in Afghanistan,” a reporter asked General Faiz. Lt Gen Faiz Hameed told the reporter with a smile on his face, “Don’t worry, everything will be okay”.
General Faiz Hameed’s name first came to light between 2017 and 2018, when banned TLP workers staged a sit-in at Faizabad, Rawalpindi for several days. The agreement between the government and the Tehreek-e-Labbaik was signed (then Major General) by Faiz Hameed as a guarantor. General Faiz Hameed has been criticized by the leadership of the opposition party PML-N.
After appearing in the Islamabad High Court, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz spoke to the media. Maryam Nawaz said, “My case was politically engineered, General Faiz Hameed made this case and sentenced me.”
PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz alleged that General Faiz had ensured that a bench was formed that would not grant bail to Nawaz Sharif and me. Maryam Nawaz also alleged that her case was framed, tried, and sentenced by General Faiz, so the case is completely baseless.
General Faiz once again made headlines when a no-confidence motion was filed against Imran Khan. Asif Farooqi of BBC Urdu in his article pointed out that the Prime Minister wanted to remove the army chief and appoint someone else (probably General Faiz) as army chief.
The article narrates the story of last night’s events “Meanwhile, two uninvited guests also reached the Prime Minister’s House by helicopter, with extraordinary security and well-armed men, and met the Prime Minister in private for about an hour and a half. It is unknown at this time what they talked about. The sudden arrival of these uninvited guests was unexpected for the Prime Minister. Imran Khan was waiting for the helicopter but his guesses and expectations about the passengers of this helicopter proved to be completely wrong.”
Sources said that the former prime minister was expecting that his newly appointed officials would reach the Prime Minister’s House in this helicopter and after that, the noise which started from Parliament House after the Supreme Court decision would subside.
It may have happened, but the problem was that the legal document (notification) that should have been issued by the Ministry of Defense for this highest dismissal and a new appointment could not be issued, thus thwarting the Prime Minister’s House’s attempt at this ‘revolutionary’ change.
On Sunday morning, however, the Army spokesman denied the allegations.
