I just watched the last part of Jawab Deyh (June 28, 2009) and was surprised by:
- 1. How blatantly Owais Ghani was lying, and
2. Iftikhar Ahmed’s failure to catch him
Here is the transcript of the last 5 minutes of the show. (My comments are between [ ]):
Iftikhar Ahmed (IA): Aap nay aik martaba kaha aadhi baat mat karo. Ab koi baat chupai nahi ja sakti. HamaiN khul ker baat kerni chahiyay. Don’t do shuf-shuffle, shaftalu…
Awais Ghani(AG): Yay aik pashto meiN misal hay. Shuf shuf mat karo nahi kerni chahiyay “Khul ker bat kerni chahiyay”
IA: Akbar Bugti ko kiss nay mara?
AG: Sir, acha. OK, Ab meiN explain ker dayta houN. Wohan bhi aik insurgency key kafiat THee jis kay khilaf military action hua. Again wo military action rad-e-aml meiN hua. Rocket – rocketing hui- Kohlu mein bhi and Quetta mein bhi aap ko yad ho ga – us kay rad-e-aml mein hua. Is meiN aksar yey mujh say poocha giya hay. Jawab meiN maiN nay kaha hay ‘DeykhaN jee, Aik citizen hota hay aik mulk ka. Us waqt tak us ko aaeen aur kanoon tahafuz dayta hay jab tak wo aaeen aur qanoon kay dairay mein rahay. Jub wo us dairay say bahir ho jai to us ko qanoon tahafooz nahi dayta.’ Unfortunately wohan per aaysay halat payda ho gaay kay us meiN aik khulam khula larai shuru ho gai halaN kay action … [Here he justifies the killing basically stating Bugti deserved it as he had stepped out from under the protection provided by law and the constitution. I of course disagree as he was still a citized]
IA: Larai Do zatouN meiN ho gai: Pervez Musharraf aur Akbar Bugti mein …
AG: No, no, no, no…I totally disagree…
[What “No, no…”. It was, as the next statement by IA reveals and it is a commonly known fact:]
IA: …Pervez Musharaf nay kaha kay “Oos ko pata bhi nahi lagay ga kay us ko kahaN say hit kiya ja raha hay”
AG: Not at all sir. [VERY MUC SO SIR]Mein sar aap ko…I was governor there. Yaad rakhaiN ka us say pehlay dhai sal ka muzakarat ka aml chala gis ko, I was tasked kay jis ko aagay chalaaiN. Parliamentary Committee bani, waghaira. Mein khud un say milnay giya Dera Bugti. Teen ghantay unhoN nay bhi khul kay bataiN ki aur hum nay bhi khul kay bataiN key. Akhri action jo hay — aap ko yad hay Kohlu ga-ay President Musharraf — aik dayrh billion ka package aylan karnay. Wohan par aik rocket aaya aur un mein say aik 200 guz kay faslay par gira jis ka splinter aa kar hamaray nazdeek gira. Phir bhi hum baithay rahay.[Ha, ha, right!] Hum nay poori karwai ki. Sara kuch kiya.
Us kay rud-e-amal mein — kuon kay yay Marri area mein hua, MarriyouN kay khilaf action shoro ho giya. Aur MarriyouN mein bhi us group kay khilaf jis nay yay harkat ki thee. Aur is ka mein gawah hounkay a clear message mari taraf say giya aur sub ki taraf say giya aur un kay baray dost jo haiN — unkay damad haiN — un kay through bhi message bhayja ka ji aap kay khilaf kuch nahi hay — sirf aur sirf Marris kay khilaf hay. Lakin yay afsos ki baat hay — hakikat hay — is say koi ankhaiN moor nahi sakta kay ous meiN bugtis kood paray. Khoob hamla kiya. Phir us say larai phail gayee. Phir daykhaiN larai to aysee cheese hay running larai mein kuch bhi ho jata hay.
[Again repeating the justification that it was a fight so all’s fair!]
IA: Who killed him?
AG: Sir it was the military action. It happened. It was very unfortunate. Yay aik hakeekat hay kay un kay jo telephone tha us ko hum monitor kartay thay aur jis area say un ka signal aata tha us area mein hum action nahi kartay thay. Lakin yay jo hua is say teen din pahlay telephone off ho giya aur we lost him. Yahee dar tha kay koi hadsa na ho jai aur unfortunately wohee hua aur yay hadsa ho giya.
[This is where it gets interesting. So Ghani is stating here that they had lost track of Bugti and were clueless about his whereabouts. But those who remember know he was in his “bunker” all this time. This is a balatant lie, one he himself exposes in his very next statements… ]
IA: 27 august 2006 aap nay kaha Bugti target Nahi thay… AG: Yes
IA: 27 august 2006 aap nay kaha Bugti target Nahi thay. Un ki mout Ghar meain dhamaka khaiz mowad ya baroodi surang phatnay say hui.
[Blatant lie: Remember so far he has been stating Bugti was killed during military action. Now he puts out sh!t that something exploded in the cave. He is probably channeling Mush here who recently stated Bugti died because a rocket fired from inside the cave backfired. Ha! Also so far the official story has been that bombardment of the area (remember it was bombardment targetted to get Bugti) made the roof of the cave collapse. And we all remember how proudly the EDO displayed Bugti’s glasses and persona items afterwards. “accident tha jee accident”, my @ass!!]
IA: Aaj main pooch raha houn Kiya hakeekat samnay aaee hay?
AG: Sir us mein Pakistan fauj ka aik colonel, two major, aik captain, and un ka aik bodyguard wo bhi us dhamakay mein jaan bahak huay. Ais chhez ka aap khud andaza laga leiN. Kis liya? Kay wo khud andar ga-ay thay KyoN kay Muzakarat chal rahay thay. Baat Cheet chal rahi thee. Doosri baat yay hay kay khuda na khasta agag yay irada tha …
[Blatant lie: Oh, I thought just now you had stated you guys had lost tract of him as his phone had been turned off and were clueless about his whereabouts leading to this accident and all of a sudden you have one colonel, two majors, and one captain in the cave at the time of the “accident” meeting/negotiating with him??? How is that possibe??]
IA: ??(satasi) sal kay boorhay ko marna…
AG: Sir, sir,sir. Aik Minute. Agar yahi irada tha kay un ko — nawab marhoom ko — mara jai to us say pehlay jab unhouN nay — un kay dera bugti say hamlay shoro ho gaay, us kay jawab mein — that was the easiest time. Us waqt to hot fight chal rahi thi. Theek hay na ji. To, wo, yay bat bilkul ghalat hay kay.
[B@stard, you yourself stated earlier that this was different now because Mushie had been attacked in Kohlu and this was the rad-e-aml of that. Before you did not want to kill him but now you did as you had stated yourself (“Bugti had crossed the limits and constitution and law gave him no protection”)]
IA: Kiya Bator Insan Awais Ahmed Ghani yay dukh rakhay ga apnay seenay par Yay us kay daur mein hua?
AG: Afsoos nak.
[Ghani, you are a bay sharam h@rami and this too is a lie as proven by you other lies about it. You were Mush’s c*cksVcker then and today you are svcking Z@rdari’s d!ck. That is your haysiyat!]
