Memo Scandal and Hussain Haqqani
24 November, 2011
Mr. Hussian Haqani – Former Pakistan Ambassador to United States has finally resigned on controversial memo issue. Soon after his resignation Government of Pakistan has announced that "high level transparent investigation" would be held in this matter.
The issue emerged when Mr. Mansoor Ijaz – American businessman of Pakistan ancestry has brought alleged secret memo to public and media attention. Now even after the resignation of Mr. Haqani, the issue is still concerning all the major players in Pakistan. The Government of Pakistan, the Pakistan Army, Intelligence agencies and Pakistan political parties of opposition, are not only taking this matter seriously but major opposition party PML-N is also demanding Mr. President to resign from his office on this matter.
- Do you support opposition's demand of president's resignation on account of this matter?
- Do you think that "secret memo" is written or dictated by Mr. Hussain Haqnai and his resignation is right step in this regard?
- How do you see the role of key player, "Mr. Mansoor Ijaz" in this matter?
- Do you think that probe on this matter would bring results & would make guilty parties accountable?
