“Spy move”: DG ISI asks concerned authorities not to release his pictures or videos to the media
Lieutenant General Nadeem Anjum on the 18th of December, has asked all the authorities not to release his picture or videos made during any official meeting. At the same time, on the 17th of December during a National Security Committee meeting, DG ISI’s picture was not released.
Lt Gen (retd) Amjad Shoaib, quoted by Naya Daur, explained that intelligence services’ core principle was to steer clear of the public eye. Another (retd) Major General Ejaz Awan is quoted by The News saying, “You would be a good intelligence operator if you roam around Lahore and no one notices you. And no one recognises that here the ISI Sector Commander is going.” Major General (retd) Ejaz had quoted what the former DG ISI General (retd) Ahsan once told him.
In November, Lt Gen Nadeem Anjum assumed the office of DG ISI, as Gen Faiz Hameed was replaced and appointed as Corps Commander, Peshawar.
