The latest hot topic in Pakistani politics these days is the bombshell dropped by Brig Imtiaz about the 1992 Karachi operation. The timing of the revelation is curious but Brigadier Imtiaz has explained it away as the sudden reawakening of his conscience/zameer.

There are many who find it curious that Brig Imtiaz chose to stir this media pot now. He had been convicted and imprisoned on corruption charges and had been in prison. In 2008, when he was suddenly freed by the Musharraf’s appointed Islamabad High Court under the NRO, his illegally acquired property and assets were restored to him. His imprisonment on corruption charges was the main reason for him being in hibernation from the media for so long.
