Christophe Jaffrelot | Published: August 26 2016 12:04 am Riaz the 12th richest man in Pakistan helms the largest private realty firm in the country Bahria Town Top News When a Pakistani chief of army staff (COAS) usurps power from a civilian government he justifies his action by claiming — among other things — that the civilians lack integrity Pervez Musharraf was no exception In 1999 he issued a National Accountability Order (NAO) reminiscent of Ayub Khan’s 1959 Elective Bodies Disqualification Order (EBDO) that offered politicians suspected of corruption the choice of either going on trial or retiring from politics The NAO led to the establishment of a National Accountability Bureau (NAB) which launched an anti-corruption campaign that targeted among others Benazir Bhutto Today the military is not in office and cannot go so far but they continue to obliquely expose the lack of scruples of civilian rulers and cultivate a reputation for probity Last spring COAS Raheel Sharif made a very shrewd use of the Panama Papers which had compromised the reputation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif He asked the PM — whose declared assets had doubled in four years to around Rs 2 billion (in Pakistani rupees) — to resolve the Panama issue thereby forcing him on the defensive To show his commitment to clean public service the COAS dismissed six army officers including two generals for corruption after he said in a widely-publicised speech that “across the board accountability is necessary for the solidarity integrity and prosperity of Pakistan” This unpredented move was intended to show the world that the army knew how to clean up its ranks while the politicians were unable to book the corrupt The scam that forced the COAS to act concerns the illegal investment of three to four billion rupees in the stock market by the National Logistics Cell a transport company involved in road construction with more than 7200 people including 2500 serving military personnel on its rolls Many similar scams have come to the light in recent months Earlier this year Amjad Kayani retired brigadier and brother of former COAS Ashfaq Pervez Kayani was summoned by the NAB for his alleged involvment in a scam implicating the Defence House Authority (DHA) In 2009 the DHA had launched a project near Lahore the “DHA City” that was supposed to provide accommodation for families of soldiers — primarily the war-wounded and “martyrs” — in recognition of their services to the nation The company of another brother of Ashfaq Pervez Kayani Kamran Kayani Elysium Holdings was commissioned by the DHA to acquire land But it failed to deliver for six years despite receiving payment from the public which led the DHA to lodge a complaint with the NAB Last month the NAB issued an arrest warrant for Kamran Kayani Kayani has since been cleared of any involvement but the scam is for real In 2016 another DHA-related scam regarding a farm house project near Islamabad resulted in the arrest of two other ex-army men who were accused by the NAB “for misusing their authority by selling illegal allotment certificates of DHA Islamabad” These cases reflect growing involvement of (ex-) army men in businesses a process that as Ayesha Siddiqa has shown resulted in the making of “Military Inc” an enterprise with investment worth $10bn in land and $10bn in private assets Today the military controls one-third of all heavy industry manufacturing in Pakistan This development started with the creation of foundations the oldest and largest being the Fauji Foundation (FF) which was started by the ministry of defence in 1954 The FF’s initial mission was to ensure the welfare of soldiers but it developed its own enterprises from sugar mills to cement factories The army took the cue and set up its foundation the Army Welfare Trust in 1971 The air force followed and established the Shaheen Foundation in 1977 (which manufactures a wide variety of products including pharmaceuticals and shoes) Not to be left out the navy established the Bahria Foundation in 1982 (which aside from manufacturing paint is also involved in industrial bread-making) Last month Defence Minister Khawaja Asif informed the upper house that the army runs 50 commercial entities including banks Today among the most profitable activities of the military is real estate development The military used to convert training grounds in major cantonments into residential areas Nowadays (ex-) army men have become a part of speculative real estate operations Some of them are associated with Malik Riaz whose rise as a realtor would not have been possible without powerful patrons Riaz the 12th richest man in Pakistan helms the largest private realty firm in the country Bahria Town This company made a fortune by developing gated communities and even private cities across Pakistan How did Riaz get land for his projects Many suspect he got illicit support from within the army He has himself claimed he bribed decision-makers — including politicians judges and ISI officers Bahria Town’s policy of recruting (ex-)army men in large numbers may also have helped Last but not the least this company has established joint ventures with military entities including DHA which makes land acquisition easier Some of these collaborations have come under a cloud For instance the DHA Valley project in Islamabad According to NAB “about 30000 kanal (DHA) land was transferred to Bahria Town without the approval of the competent authority” So 110000 civilians and 41000 serving and retired army men who had paid instalments suffered The army had to do damage control especially after a Dawn report alleged that Riaz’s son was named in the Panama Papers and linked him to Raheel Sharif A few days before axing the corrupt officers in April last the COAS had made another unprecedented move: He donated his plots in Lahore and Islamabad (their value was estimated to be over Rs 450 million to the Shuhada Foundation (benefiting the “martyrs” of the army and their families) At the same time Riaz reportedly at the request of Sharif returned more than Rs 55bn to DHA Are these moves sufficient to redeem the Pakistani army’s reputation the most popular institution in the country according to the last PILDAT (Pakistan Institute of Legislative Development and Transparency) survey in September 2015 with an approval rating of above 75 per cent (as against 35 per cent to the political parties) Tough to predict but the fact is the balance of power in Islamabad/Rawalpindi depends on the military’s
