Top PMLN leader opens a new pendora box against former DG ISI
General Faiz Hameed, the former spymaster, was insistent on participating in the Faizabad sit-in agreement, which ultimately put an end to more than 20 days of nationwide protests in 2017, according to Ahsan Iqbal, a leader from the PML-N party.
Ahsan Iqbal, in an interview with Hamid Mir on Geo News' Capital Talk, revealed that he had discussed the situation with the Prime Minister at the time.
The Prime Minister expressed reservations about General Faiz Hameed, the former Inter-Services Intelligence chief, signing the agreement, as it was a political document and his signature might not be appropriate. However, General Faiz Hameed insisted that the other party, composed of various religious groups, wanted his signature on the agreement.
This discussion pertains to the army-brokered deal that resolved the sit-in, which had blocked the main road connecting Islamabad to other cities, and took place on November 27, 2017.
