Pakistani Police Officer Puts End To Violations By US Diplomats

December 12, 2009

Ahmed Quraishi

A young Pakistani Assistant Superintendent of Police [ASP] chased a fleeing US embassy car for two kilometers after it sped through a police checkpoint on the outskirts of the Pakistani capital on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2009.  

When the diplomats refused to stop, the ASP drove past them and then sharply turned his car to force the US embassy vehicle to screech to a halt. He and his senior police officers insisted the US diplomats return to the police picket, apologize to the Pakistani police officers and submit to a security inspection of the inside of the car like all cars passing through the checkpoint, according to the exclusive report published by Lahore’s The Nation newspaper.

The incident is significant because of the meteoric rise in incidents of public bullying by US diplomats and privately armed security contractors in Pakistani cities. At least three incidents have been registered by Islamabad police this year where armed Americans in plainclothes assaulted Pakistani citizens.

There is growing evidence that Pakistan’s pro-US government has let tens of Blackwater-type private US security contractors into the country without taking the Pakistani public opinion into confidence. The Pakistani ambassador in Washington, who is strongly backed by US government and military, is suspected of having leaked confidential documents to the Indian media in September 2009 in order to embarrass Pakistan’s military intelligence community.

Hours after a terrorist blast at a busy market in Lahore killed over 50 women and children on Dec. 8, two US Consulate Land Cruisers caused a traffic jam because US diplomats locked themselves inside to prevent Pakistani Military Police officials from inspecting the cars. The military did not release the cars without first taking them to an unidentified location for questioning.

In October, Pakistani media reports said ISI Chief Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha told CIA chief Leon Panetta during his secret visit to Islamabad that Pakistanis have evidence that implicates CIA operatives in Afghanistan in supporting terrorism inside Pakistan.

Pakistan is facing a deadly and sophisticated wave of terrorism targeting civilians in public places. The wave coincides with US attempt to shift its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to Pakistan on the unsubstantiated ground that Islamabad is responsible for the looming US failure in Afghanistan.

  3. Sadly, this is a dangerous move for the career of this dedicated officer. Nonetheless excellent work and I hope all his colleagues take an example of this fine effort.


  4. What a brave officer,an ex army man.All the police force should get Army training.

    Meanwhile,a God gifted chance in 5 american Muslim youths.Pakistan should strike back with a “false flag” charge.They might have been sent by CIA with ulterior motives.They should not be extredited immediately.

    To deal with a country like USA,we have to be pro-active.Within 24 hours of the news whole America was reacting including Obama(in Oslo),Hillary.But our PM was holding a press conference,nobody asked the question.The whole nation seems to be sleeping.
    We all need to be like Cpt(R) Shahid Ali Malik.

  9. IT IS A SHAME THAT PAKISTANI GOVERNMENT ALLOWS THE AMERICAN CULPRITS BEHIND THE MASSACRES IN PAKISTAN LET GO .THIS OFFICER SHOULD BE REWARDED FOR PERFORMING HIS DUTY TOWARDS HIS NATION IN PARTICULAR AND TOWARDS THE HUMANITY IN GENERAL.
