Former ISI chief praises Vajpayee, laments not having someone like him as Pakistan’s PM

Former ISI chief Muhammad Asad Durrani has heaped praise on former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, News18 has reported. These snippets are part of a book titled The Spy Chronicles: RAW, ISI and the Illusion of Peace, which records conversations between Durrani and former RAW chief AS Dulat.

As reported, Dulat was quoted as praising PM Modi for doing more in his first two years for India-Pakistan relations than what his predecessor Manmohan Singh managed during his time.

During the exchange Durrani claimed that Modi was likely to get a second term and after switching his attention to Vajpayee stated that:

We would be happy if someone like Vajpayee was Prime Minister in Pakistan. Poet, philosopher, he could have been a good Prime Minister for us

Besides this, Durrani has also been quoted as claiming that Doval has made India’s Pak policy more hardline, and even indirectly acknowledged Pakistan’s role in Kashmiri insurgency. When asked about the biggest failure of the ISI, he was quoted as lamenting about the shape which the Hurryat took after its formation.

The announcement of the book though wasn’t without its controversy. The fact that spies belonging to two different countries, who have a long history of enmity were sitting down to record a candid on record discussion, puzzled a people who as a result raised questions over the veracity of the book:

One Foreign Affairs expert blasted the spy agencies over the outlook exhibited in the book:

It remains to be seen as to how is the book received after its released, especially by the Pakistani government.
