The head of the National Directorate of Security (NDS), Rahmatullah Nabil, said that “unfortunately a lack of agreement on policy matters and restrictions imposed” on him by the president had created an atmosphere where he could not do his job.
In his letter, Nabil alleged that Ghani had “verbally” asked him to resign.
The resigned of Nabil has reportedly been accepted by the government but the officials have not formally confirmed the report so far.
Nabil issued a rare statement late on Wednesday night, posted on his official Facebook page, and shortly after the Pak-Afghan leaders agreed to revive the controversial Afghan peace talks.
Nabil said the innocent Afghan civilians were martyred and beheaded in Kandahar airfield, Khanshin district of Helmand, Takhar and Badakhshan at the same Nawaz Sharif was delivering his speech, once calling the enemy of Afghanistan as Pakistan’s enemy.
In parts of his message, Nabil was apparently criticizing President Ghani for his remarks in Islamabad today, saying “At least 1,000 litres blood of our innocent people spilled which was similar to the red carpet where we did a cat walk. But the one who was present with us in the gathering and made an announcement from Quetta city of Pakistan under the name of Taliban, using the ISI computer to claim the glory. And we became so much apprehended and excited with 21 artillery gun salute that we agreed regarding the execution of 40 assaults/operations against the enemies of Pakistan and promised to soon launch a large operation against Mullah Fazlullah in a bid to keep our 60-year-old friend glad.”
Frustrated with the growing interference of Pakistan in internal affairs of Afghanistan and President Ghani’s approach, Nabil questioned regarding the 5000-year-old history of Afghanistan saying it has kneeled to a 60-year-old history.
Nabil also added that the Pakistani Taliban chief Mullah Fazlullah has been residing in Pakistan and ISI guesthouses during the past several months and years, insisting that Mullah Fazlullah is part of ISI projects.
