The memogate controversy (also Mullen memo controversy) revolves around a memorandum (addressed to Admiral Mike Mullen) seeking help of the Obama administration in the wake of the Osama bin Laden raid to avert a military takeover of the civilian government in Pakistan and conversely to assist in a civilian takeover of the military apparatus . Central actors in the plot included American-Pakistani businessman Mansoor Ijaz, who alleged that former Pakistan Ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani asked him to deliver a confidential memo asking for US assistance. The memo is alleged to have been drafted by Haqqani at the behest of President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari.

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has opened a broader inquiry into the origins, credibility and purpose of the memo.

plzz share ur ideaxx 

OFTEN during Pakistan’s turbulent history has the army’s 111th Brigade swept out of its headquarters in Rawalpindi, scooted to Islamabad 20 minutes away, and effortlessly taken over the government. These days, under General Ashfaq Kayani, the soldiers know it is wiser to rule from behind the scenes, with a weak civilian government taking the blame for the country’s problems. On November 22nd the army heaped humiliation on the government, pressing it to jettison Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States, Husain Haqqani, a smooth operator, over allegations that he crafted an offer to rein in the Pakistani army and its spy agency in return for American help in averting a feared coup.

The offer to the American administration was made in an unsigned memo, which Mr Haqqani denies writing. It was sent to America’s military high command in May, during a time when relations were febrile following the killing in Pakistan by American special forces of Osama bin Laden. The memo’s existence was revealed only in October, by the controversial American businessman of Pakistani origin who delivered it. It was supposedly composed on the instructions of Mr Haqqani acting on behalf of President Asif Zardari. The incendiary document proposed that government would dismantle the wing of the army’s Inter-Services Intelligence responsible for dealing with the Taliban, in return for American support.

Though the bin Laden raid was a huge embarrassment to the army, the “memogate” scandal showed again that real power in Pakistan still lies with the soldiers. No evidence pins the memo to Mr Zardari. Its recipient, Admiral Mike Mullen, then chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says he did not take it seriously. The army and the friendly television stations it whipped up forced Mr Haqqani’s exit before an investigation into the matter had even begun.

Mr Haqqani had once written a book detailing the links between the army and jihadists. In America his connections ensured a direct line to top decision-makers. The armed forces had never liked having the country’s most important relationship entrusted to him.

The government has saved a little face by appointing Sherry Rehman to succeed Mr Haqqani as ambassador in Washington. She is a rare politician of substance in the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party. She has a record as a campaigner for human rights. And she supports the government’s welcome attempts to improve ties with India, the army’s eternal enemy. Yet the soldiers do not seem to mind her. She argues for more American understanding of army views that, she says, are shaped more by fears about a dangerous region than by self-serving ambition. The 111th can stand easy for now.

"What do you know about the “Memo gate” Scandal in Pakistan”?

Answer; -

Memo Gate scandal is on the front page headlines of the Pakistani newspapers since

couple of weeks. Memo gate scandal in Pakistan refers to the alleged letter send to the

American high command by Pakistani Ambassador in America – Hussain Haqqani,

who has attained popularity as an American Envoy in America, who is getting all the

privilege from Pakistan. Hussain Haqqani is known for protecting the contingent

interests of American in Pakistan by issuing Visas to Ramond Davis like CIA Agents

and using other tactics to destabilize Pakistan. Anyhow, now Hussain Haqqani has

resigned and Government has ensured the parliament to constitute a committee to

investigate this Memo Gate Scandal. No double the Government will try its level best

to protect Hussain Haqqani, who was enjoying the most privileged government seat

after Prime Minister-ship, as is said by some Senior Journalists. The Government will

scarifies Hussain Haqqani only when their own government will be at stake. Memo

Gate scandal is in fact the toughest challenge ever faced by the Government of

Pakistan which has earned the reputation of the most corrupt government ever in the

history of Pakistan.

 

The Opposition has also gone in Supreme Court for constitution of Judiciary

Committee to probe the matter of Memo Gate.

 

In the letter, which is referred as Memo Gate Scandal, refuge of America was sought

by the Civil Government against the Military Establishment of Pakistan and in turn,

the Government of Pakistan ensured the US Government to allow them whatever they

want. They would have more liberty to act. More than what they are enjoying now.

They would have access to the nuclear installations of Pakistan and so on.

 

Anyhow, what does Memo Gate Scandal means and why the letter sent by Hussain

Haqqani is named as Memo Gate Scandal?, are the questions, answer of which very

few knows.

 

The Term Memo gate Scandal was first used in respect of documents claimed by the

CBS to be related to President George W. Bush's service in the Air National Guard in

1972–73. These documents were critical for the upcoming elections in George W.

Bush was also a candidate. However, CBS could not produce sanctity of these

documents.

 

In this context, could it be possible that the letter written to the Americans by Hussain

Haqqani could be proved as forged or at least the prosecution would not be able to

prove that the documents were from Hussain Haqqani. However, one should be forget

that in the George W. Bush’s Memo Gate Scandal all the documents related to 1972-

73 and, reportedly, the original documents were burnt. However, in the case of

Hussain Haqqan all the data of Black Berries and Laptop of Hussain Haqqani and

Mansoor Ijaz could be traced in minutes and reported has been traced by Pakistani

Agencies. Hence, if it is actually done, there could hardly be any chances of escape

for Hussain Haqanni.
