In a shocking event, former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, controversial former Vice-President Hamid Ansari and other Congress leaders jointly released a book co-authored by former Pakistan ISI chief Asad Durrani and former RAW chief A S Dulat, in New Delhi. Other Congress leaders like Farooq Abdullah, Kapil Sibal were also present at the event. Interestingly, controversial scribe Barkha Dutt who is known to be the sympathizer of terrorists was also present at the meeting. Dutt is often accused of leaking sensitive information to Pakistani Army during terrorist operations in India.
The Pakistan Army has now summoned former ISI chief Asad Durrani on 28th May, to seek his explanation over a book he co-authored with India’s ex-spy chief AS Dulat, accusing him of violating the military code of conduct.

Asad Durrani was ISI chief in the 90s when Kashmir insurgency had just started. He has co-authored a book with former RAW chief A S Dulat who is known for all wrong reasons in the country, especially his soft outlook towards terror where helped terrorist and Hizbul Mujahideen Chief Syed Salahuddin’s son get a medical seat in Srinagar.

Durrani was denied visa by the Indian government due to national security reasons for which he thanked Indian state as it ‘saved him from the wrath of our (Pakistan’s) hawks’.
Earlier too, Congress leaders were caught red-handed during Gujarat Elections when many Congress leaders, including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Ansari, had met the Pakistani High Commissioner. Some sections of media allegedly accused them of seeking help from the Pakistani establishment to defeat the Narendra Modi government. Congress’ Mani Shankar Aiyer in the past had openly asked Pakistani establishment to help to dethrone Modi government.
