|Shireen Mazari was asked to leave in 15 minutes|

ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday once again acted in indecent haste when the DG Administration at the Foreign Office asked Dr Shireen Mazari, the sacked DG Institute of Strategic Studies, to leave in 15 minutes.
“I was taken aback as I needed time to clear up my office and to bid farewell to researchers and the staff at the institute. But I was sent a backdated notification of May 14, stating the termination of my services.
Then I was literally harassed by the Foreign Office, saying I had fifteen minutes to leave the office as my successor Tanvir Ahmed Khan was about to arrive to take over,” Mazari told The News.
However, as in the past, the Foreign Office was simply harassing her because the notification of Tanvir’s appointment was delivered to the ISSI at around noon, and was sent to Tanvir at his residence much later, former foreign minister Inamul Haq, Chairperson ISSI, told The News.
There was no way that the Foreign Office could possibly have ensured the presence of Tanvir Ahmad Khan in fifteen minutes when he had not even received his orders. Former Foreign Secretary Riaz Mohammad Khan was earlier removed in a similar manner.
But before she quickly left for home and sent the official car back, Dr Shireen Mazari got a call from Hussain Haqqani, who landed at Mazari’s office with a bouquet, which the angry Mazari left for her successor.
Haqqani apologised that there had been some mix-up, and she should be allowed to stay on for a month as entailed in her contract and that he would speak to the foreign secretary about it. Mazari clearly told him that her sacking was because of her independent views that had upset the US camp, which was dictating to the PPP government.
