Former Taliban commander, Ehsanullah Ehsan, who escaped from a safe house operated by the Pakistan army in early 2020, reveals how Pakistan military intelligence gave him a hit-list of people it wanted him to eliminate, a ‘job’ he refused to do. He wrote this from an undisclosed location.
While in the custody of Pakistan’s intelligence agencies, as usual in the evening, after sunset, I was sitting in the drawing room with my son Muhammad Abbas Khan, watching TV when Col Taufeeq Ahmad Malik messaged me on my WhatsApp saying, “Today Commander Sahib wants to meet you, I will send the car in an hour, you come with the driver.”
I asked Col Taufeeq Ahmad Malik, “Is there an important issue?” However, the Colonel, refraining from giving further information, said that we would meet in an hour to find out what the matter was. I ended the discussion by sending him a smiley emoji.
