Is there any role of military in Bilawal Bhutto-Hina Rabbani affair??

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (Sat, Sept. 29) - Reported by madn3wz

The Pakistani army on Saturday has tagged British newspaper's report as "absurd and baseless" in which the paper claimed that the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency was behind a defamation campaign against foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar and PPP co-chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Is there any role of military in Bilawal Bhutto-Hina Rabbani affair??

An ISPR (Inter-Services Public Relations) spokesperson has denied the claims of British Newspaper Daily Telegraph which blames ISI for running a defamation campaign against Bilawal and Hina through a Bangladeshi tabloid “ Blitz weekly”. 

“The ISI has nothing to do with this defamation campaign and neither any problem exists between the foreign minister and the agency,” said the ISI spokesperson.

The defamation campaign was the "handiwork of those who want to weaken the state by creating misunderstanding between various institutions", the spokesperson said.

"It is not something new because such people have been fabricating misleading and impish stories in the past as well," he added. 

According to Daily Telegraph, senior members of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) said Thursday they believed the claims were part of a plot by the ISI to damage Khar’s reputation because it blames her for her part in facilitating a UN investigation into thousands of missing people detained by the security forces.

Earlier Bangladeshi tabloid 'The Blitz Weekly' published the story disclosing that the married foreign minister, who has two young children with her millionaire husband, and Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, the PPP Co-Chairman,want to marry and have been regularly talking on the telephone and sending cards to each other. The tabloid claimed President Zardari was firmly opposed to their alleged relationship and had sought details of their mobile telephone conversations to establish the facts.

The paper said that Ms Khar and her husband had dismissed the claims as “reprehensible” and “trash”, but they had been reported widely in Pakistan where they spawned conspiracy theories among Islamabad’s political classes.
