* Why British journalist Carey Schofield is hiding names of the accused generals?
By Habib R. Sulemani
A criminal gang of serving generals of the Pakistan Army first humiliated and then allegedly killed a fellow general who wanted to expose the gang’s involvement in terrorism—secret deals with the Taliban.
The assassinated officer, Major-General Ameer Faisal Alvi (1954-2008) is said to be a unique general of the Pakistan Army who considered himself a professional soldier not a power-broker.
General Faisal Alvi was the brother-in-law of British writer Sir V. S. Naipaul who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2001. Lady Nadira Naipaul, sister of General Alvi, was a glamorous journalist in Pakistan. Her column,Letter from Bahawalpur, used to appear in a daily English language newspaper of Lahore. However, she left the profession and country after her marriage to the Trinidad-born British writer in 1996.
General Faisal Alvi was a former chief of the Special Services Group (commonly known as SSG or commandos). He had joined the Pakistan Army in 1974 and was forcefully retired in 2005.
"It hasn’t worked, they’ll shoot me," General Alvi reportedly told Ms. Schofield.
