- Americans murdered the first elected prime minister of Pakistan through the
Afghan government, declassified documents of US State Department disclosed.
Like a number of other high-profile killings, the assassination
of Liaquat Ali Khan, has also remained a mystery. Conspiracy theories abound,
yet are difficult to substantiate.
It was revealed in the documents declassified a few years ago
that two people killed the murderer of Liaquat Ali Khan at the spot while crowd
also massacred the two persons in order to leave no sign of the conspiracy.
According to the documents, the United States wanted to get
contracts of oil resources in Iran. Pakistan and Iran enjoyed cordial ties and
Afghanistan used to be an enemy of Pakistan during 1950-51. The neighbouring
Afghanistan was the only country that did not accept Pakistan at that time.
The US demanded Pakistan use its influence in Tehran and
persuade it to transfer control of its oil fields to the US.
Liaquat Ali Khan declined to accede to the request, saying he
would not use his friendship for dishonest purposes and not interfere in
personal affairs of Iran.
On which, then US President Harry Truman had threatened to
Liaquat Ali Khan. Not only that, Liaquat Ali Khan also demanded that the US
vacate air bases in Pakistan, dropping a bombshell on Americans.
Following the development, American started search of murderer
for assassinating Khan. They did not find a suitable person in Pakistan and then
turned to Afghanistan for this purpose, according to the documents.
Washington contacted the US Embassy in Kabul, offering Zahir
Shah to search an assassin for Khan and in return they will ensure
Afghan government had found a man, Syed Akbar, to take the job
and also made arrangements for him to be killed immediately after, so as to
conceal the conspiracy. All three stayed at a local hotel in Rawalpindi one day
before the meeting of party in Company Bagh.
Akbar fired at Khan when he started his speech at dais and he
fell on the stage, saying “Allah help Pakistan”.
The cartridges recovered from Khan’s body were US made. The
type of bullets used to kill the Pakistani prime minister was in use by
high-ranking American officers and were not usually available in the market.
Some people claimed that Governor General Ghulam Muhammad was
behind Khan’s murder while some blamed Mushtaq Ahmed Gormani. Different
committees and commission were constituted but failed to conclude any results.
After a span of over 60 years, the US State Department have
disclosed all the secrets and a video of Dr Shabir about disclosures also
appeared in which he gave reaction over the declassified documents.
When Online contacted Muazzam Ali Khan, the grandson of
Liaquat Ali Khan, he said they are aware about the report and it is true. He
also said they also have supporting documents in this regard.
