A failed Islamist military coup in Pakistan -- Thread:

In 1992 Commander FCNA - Maj Gen Zaheer Abbasi undertook an unauthorized and costly foray into Indian-held territory in which Pak Army lost ~ 40 men including 11 officers (incl a Brigadier). Image
Gen Abbasi was removed from his command & given a non-operational desk role at GHQ. He'd ve been fired had it not been for the reported intervention of Gen Javed then DG-ISI (Gen Javed was appointed by NS on the recommendation of Brig (R) Imtiaz (involved in midnight Jackal))
. Image

By 1995, Gen Zaheer along with Brigadier Mustansar Billa, Col Minhas and Harkatul Jihad-i-Islami (HuJI) commander Qari Saifullah planned to kill top Pak military leadership including then COAS Gen Kakar and civilian leadership PM Benazir Bhutto and President Leghari
. Image Image Image
The plan named "Operation Khilafat" was to take over the reins of government and declare Pakistan a theocratic state and implement Shariah Law. But before 96 hours of the execution of the coup, Military Intelligence and ISI intervened and arrested ~ 40 army men and 20 civilians. Image Image
Gen Zaheer and co-conspirator had already written the "Address to the Nation" in which he appealed to all Muslims to unite under the "Islamic Revolution" that had taken place and would declare there would be no borders within the world of Islam..
..and that the borders btw Pak and Afghanistan would finish since we were one nation in Islam.

One of the planners of the coup Qari Saifullah became an approver, Gen Zaheer, Brigadier Mustansar Billa and others were court-martialed and sentenced to jail for 7, 14 and 2 years.

A failed coup hidden for 30 years.
Really?

Since when do things in Pakistan remain a secret for so long, there is always rumours and talk or something, this is the first time I'm hearing this.

Possibly religious idiots with fantasies who were caught, but to call it a failed coup is a bit rich and misleading.

General Tajammul Hussain Malick was also an individual who tried to first mount a coup on bhutto and then Zia govt. He planned to assasinate Zia and declare islamic govt.

Rawalpindi conspiracy case is also well known but they were leftists in their thinking.

These are the coups attempts brought to public knowledge, there could have been more.

The reason is Pakistani leaders donot bring in reforms and the country gets stuck with corrupts many desire to remove them physically.

This was a failed operation, on the initiative of then Commander FCNA, without approval from higher ups. This operation was launched to take this peak (composed of (namely) W Ridge, Commando Ridge and posts named Madhuri and Gandhi).

As is plainly visible, the approach provides no cover. Our troops therefore advanced under cover of a heavy blizzard. However, at the last moment, the weather cleared and our troops were caught in the open.

The then Brigade Commander, Brigadier Masood Anwari took it upon himself to evacuate the casualties and supply the fighting troops. However, his helicopter was shot down during the fight by an Igla.

منصوبہ یہ تھا کہ آرمی چیف جنرل عبد الوحید کاکڑ اور کور کمانڈرز کانفرنس کے لیے آئے جرنیلوں کو ان کی رہائش کے لیے دیے گئے کمروں سے گرفتار کیا جائے گا اور راتوں رات میجر جنرل ظہیر الاسلام عباسی کو نیا آرمی چیف تعینات کیا جائے
