      Army Welfare Trust
      It says: Pakistan has been ruled by the Army for about half of the period of its existence. During this period of its dictatorial rule it has authorized some unbelievable perks and privileges for its armed forces. A civilian government, as and when formed, could hardly change or challenge these perks. Once Prime Minister Mohammad Khan Junejo attempted to cut defence expenditure and tried to put generals and admirals in small Suzuki cars in place of more luxurious Toyotas, General Zia promptly sacked him. Besides handsome pay packet, army officers in Pakistan are given many colonial privileges. The biggest perk is land. Soldiers and sailors are rewarded with land for distinguished service. In any other Army a Major General on promotion to the rank of Lieutenant General gets higher pay scale, some additional brass on his shoulders and an extra star on his star plate but in the Pakistan Army a Major General on promotion to the rank of Lieutenant General gets fifty acres of land. No wonder when Musharraf disclosed his personal wealth after taking office he listed nine pieces of real estate and three houses as part of his assets. His daughter resides in one of his houses in Karachi’s Defence colony and his parents live in a house in Islamabad. He also owns other pieces of real state in Karachi, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Lahore, Gwadar near Arabian Sea and fifty acres of land at Bhawalpur in Punjab. The allotment of prime pieces of land to serving military generals at throwaway prices has generated much public demand for bringing serving military officials into the accountability net and for the first time fingers are pointing at President General Pervez Musharraf accusing him of allocating prime land worth rupees two crore for himself. According to the Amir of the Jamaat Islami, Qazi Hussain Ahmad, the Chief of Army Staff, General Pervez Musharraf, was allotted the most expensive piece of land measuring 8 marlas worth of rupees two crore. The chief executive has been blessed with this precious plot on the concessional rate of just one lakh rupees, Qazi alleged, adding that he has personally seen the allotment letters. If Qazi Hussain Ahmad is to be believed, Lt Gen Syed Mohammad Amjad has recently been allotted an expensive piece of land measuring two kanals in Lahore Cantt, at a throwaway price. The General was heading the all-powerful National Accountability Bureau (NAB) when the alleged allotment latter was issued to him on August 31 last year The plot was worth 90 lakhs and General Amjad has already sold one kanal for 45 lakhs, alleged a confident Qazi to prove his claim. According to Qazi, "General Amjad’s successor, Lt Gen Khalid Maqbool, has also been allotted a two-kanal plot in Lahore Cantt, situated next to that of his predecessor." As per Jamaat Amir’s claim the Military Land and Cantonment Headquarters, Lahore, allotted a 2-kanal plot (No.2-A) to Lt.Gen. Mohammad Amjad on 31-8-2000 through allotment letter No.11-1484RD-Ihr-88, under survey No.92/2-A.The plot, situated on Sarwa Road, Lahore Cantt, was leased out to the worthy General for 99 years, against an annual lease fee of 50 rupees only. When Qazi first leveled these allegations, there were vociferous denials from various important government officials. However, the same government officials later admitted that the plots had been allotted in accordance with existing rules. An Army spokesman conceded that General Amjad and other soldiers who fulfill the merit and service oriented criteria are eligible for some benefits on payment of the cost of the land. "Lieutenant General Syed Muhammad Amjad has also been assessed by the same criteria." As for General Musharraf, the spokesman said: "The Chiefs of the three forces have to pay charges per square foot of the construction costs of the house they are given at retirement". There are authentic reports that former Ehtesab Bureau Chief, Saifur Rehman Khan, had been collecting documents on the property and assets of some top ranking officers of the armed forces. According to informed sources, two retired army brigadiers, serving the Sharif administration, had been working on a plan to determine the real assets of the military top brass. The task was to make the military command more vulnerable to accountability. Former Chief of Army Staff General (retd), Mirza Aslam Beg, was allotted a plot by the General headquarters (GHQ) at Rawalpindi’s Race Course Colony. Beg later had the plot exchanged for a piece of land of his choice. The following is an example of how the top bosses of Pakistan’s most powerful intelligence agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), feather their nests: Lt Gen (retd) Hameed Gul, its former head, was allotted a two kanal plot in Quetta Cantonment for just 45,000 rupees, as well as another plot measuring one-and-a-half kanals for just 25,000 rupees. General Gul was allotted yet another two kanal plot in the Lahore Cantt cooperative housing Society for 35,000 rupees. As if these three plots were not enough, the General, who now heads a political party, was also allotted a plot measuring 1,000 yards in Defence Housing Society, for 75,000 rupees. After retirement, lifetime employment is ensured in one of the country's many military-related business conglomerates like Fauji Foundation and the Army Welfare Trust the interests of which include banking, real estate, airlines, and insurance and construction companies. The commercial enterprises owned by the defence services contribute as much as nearly 3 per cent to the national economy annually. Where in the world does a national Army own such huge commercial interests? All these enterprises flourished and are being run profitably not by competing on a level playing field but with economic odds heavily stacked in their favour. Large autonomous organizations like PIA, Shipping Corporation, WAPDA, Steel Mills etc., have most of the time been headed by either in-service or retired officers. And very rarely have the top jobs in national sports organisations gone to civilians. But with the exception of a few all these generals and air marshals and admirals have only succeeded in lining their pockets and rendering poorer the organisations they had headed.Despite the stated intention of the martial law authorities that the land reforms were intended to bring about a just and equitable redistribution of land among the poor landless tenants, the first signs of self-agg*****zement had begun. A large part of the resumed land was soon handed over to military and civil officials at throwaway prices. The halcyon days for the new military-bureaucratic elite had arrived. South Asia Tribune has reported that Army Generals appeared totally out of control during the civilian government and their expenses jumped from Rs. 1 billion a year until 1993 to over Rs. 6.3 billion in 1994-95, to an astounding Rs. 43 billion in 1997-98 and another Rs. 12 billion in 1998-99 -- a rich Army in a nation surviving on foreign largesse Pakistan Army is the largest employer of manpower in the country. While the service requirements of the personnel are met mostly from the Army's budget provided by the Government, it is the welfare and rehabilitation of the retired personnel and especially the invalids and "Shaheeds" (Martyrs) and their families, which present a formidable challenge. The Army regards it as a major obligation to look after the welfare and rehabilitation of retired members who have devoted the best part of their life to the service of their motherland. The rehabilitation of the families of the 'Shaheeds' as well as those individuals who have become invalid, are undoubtedly, regarded by the Army as something sacrosanct and a bounden duty. The funds required for the purpose are hard to come by and have, therefore, to be generated. It was with this aim in view that: The Army Welfare Trust was founded on 27th October 1971 under the "Societies Registration Act" with the mandate of: - a. Generating funds for Welfare and Rehabilitation of the orphans and widows of 'Shaheeds', disabled personnel of Pakistan Army as
      Well as their dependents.
      b. Creating job opportunities for the retired personnel. AWT's mandate is restricted only to generation of funds for welfare and rehabilitation, without undertaking welfare activities itself. The funds / profits so generated are placed at the disposal of the Welfare and Rehabilitation Directorate at General Headquarters for utilization on welfare activities. Thus, the AWT essentially operates as business house. Starting with a modest capital of Rs. 700,000 in 1971, AWT today has total group assets in excess of Rs. 50 billion and it can be proud of having many diverse undertakings, briefly mentioned in the succeeding pages The AWT has seven Divisions namely Army Projects, Corporate Development, Farms, Finance, Industries, Real Estate and Technical. The Army Projects Division consists of four projects, i.e. shoes, woollen mills, Al-Ghazi Travels and Services Travels. The last two are travel agencies which, according to the website, provide services to civilians and foreigners. The Army shoes project, with an industrial estate at Kot Lakpath, supplies shoes to the army and foreign markets. The Corporate Development Division in turn consists of seven profit-generating business houses, namely Askari Commercial Bank Limited, Askari Leasing, Askari Insurance, Askari Guard, Askari Associates, Askari Aviation and Askari Mobil. All these seven business houses generate good profit while the Askari Commercial Bank has been declared the best Commercial Bank for 1994 and 1996. The Farms division consists of the Sugar Mills at Badin and the five agricultural farms of AWT at Multan, Okara, Pakpattan and Badin. The Finance Division looks after the financial matters of AWT as a whole. The Industries Division consists of Askari Cement Factory, Wah, Askari Cement Niazampur and Askari Pharma at Lahore. The Real Estate Division consists of AWT-owned commercial plazas, housing projects, lands and even restaurants. The Technical Division consists of Askari Information Systems, the Computer Section and, most interestingly, the Askari Commercial Enterprises that is mandated to “help retired army personnel and selected civilians to minimize infrastructure investment by prospective entrepreneurs.” The Askari Commercial Enterprises provide “furnished office accommodation, free guidance, loan and leasing facilities through AWT financial institutions, and many other facilities to get the prospective entrepreneurs off the ground.” Thus, in a nutshell, from shoes to wedding halls, insurance, leasing, lands to furnished offices, all are provided by the AWT, which by its own admission operates “as a business house”.
      This business house, which is interestingly registered under the Societies Registration Act meant for non-profit organizations, has a Board of Directors and an Administration Committee. The Administration Committee of this “business house” consists of the Adjutant General Pakistan Army, the Chief of General Staff, Pakistan Army, the Quarter Master General, Pakistan Army, Master General Ordinance and the Managing Director of AWT. Except the Managing Director of AWT, all the other members of the Administration Committee are serving generals. The Board of Directors consists of the Directors of the seven divisions, the Managing Director of AWT and of course the Adjutant General.
      At the risk of repeating oneself, one would again like to ask the same questions that one did last week regarding the Fauji Foundation. Is the AWT public or private? It can be termed public as it falls under the AG Branch of the Pakistan Army and was set up initially with Rs 700,000 of public money. However, the Army Welfare Trust itself declares that it operates as a whole, as well as through its seven divisions, as a profitable business house designed to generate funds. If it operates as a business house, then can serving army personnel be on the boards of business houses or connected in any way with a profit-generating body? Why did the government, as admitted by the Federal Education Minister, give a “guarantee of Rs 5 billion to AWT” from the public kitty (to a business house)? More interestingly, how is it that a business house is registered under the Societies Registration Act that is for non-profit organizations? These are one set of public interest questions. Another question that one would like to ask is what about the civilian sector of the population? The Fauji Foundation and the AWT in spite of their confusing public-private status, etc., do ensure that an individual remotely associated with the army has a comfortable living. The defence budget and the corporate interests of the army ensure that it has enough resources at its disposal to address the needs of its personnel. However, public servants not associated with the army do not enjoy such advantages. One fails to understand why this discrimination exists between uniformed and un-uniformed public servants? If the welfare of army personnel is a “sacrosanct duty”, then what about the needs of the public servant who has served all of his life in Railways, Gas, Education or the Health department? One is by no means an advocate of the welfare state, but the point is that all public servants should be respected and treated equally.
      Examining the setups of Fauji Foundation and the AWT during these two weeks has been a fascinating study of the ‘corporate’ interests of the Army. Our army is equipped to provide insurance, furnished offices, cultivates land, cornflakes, has sugar mills, woollen textiles as well as provides car leasing. But the question is: Is the AWT, with its ‘corporate’ interests, public or private Also, it is because generals are taking desert land without water that they want to destroy the lower riparian rights by diverting water. The policy of enriching a few families is at the cost of pitting one province against another and weakening Pakistan. The same is the story with Okra tenants where to enrich a few generals, army is getting a bad name and tenants are being ejected, killed, injured, imprisoned and tortured We got a list of over 100 armed forces men who allotted to themselves at least 400 or more acres of prime land in Bahawalpur, heart of Punjab, "to defend it from the enemy," at the throw away rate of Rs 380 per acre (US Dollars Six & 50 cents). The list is only of one District. Such lists exist all over Punjab and Sindh where a new breed of landlords has already been created through similar allotments.These fertile lands were given to the serving and retired generals on the pretext that these army generals will "prove a front line against the invading army."The centuries old British colonial law to settle locals near enemy border was invoked by these army men to grab the lands. But instead of taking lands close to the border, they took away prime heartland acres, thousands of them, in the name of defending the country.The price they paid was Rs 380 an acre was notional but many of them sold the land making millions. Others have become feudal lords in their own right by employing landless peasant to till these land and produce key crops. This list has been prepared with the help of land revenue record of the district of Bahawalpur by local activists of Nationalist Qaumi Movement, a group fighting for the rights of the local people. This conversion of generals into landlords also explains why no serious effort has been made by the military to introduce land reforms in the country, which could cure many political and social imbalances in the Pakistani society. The list includes the names and the area (Chak) where the land (400 acres or more) is located. Some of these officers may have been promoted to higher ranks or even retired from service:

      In addition to these officers, 50 hawaldars, naib clerks; clerks, naiks, honorary captains; subedars; subedar majors have also been allotted lands in the vicinity of Bahawalpur and Cholistan. Federal Minister for Environment, given order in 2001 to allot 100 acres of land in the Margalla Hills National Park, one of the big attractions of the capital city. The agency wants to construct a new and “safe” Headquarter as well as, quite intriguingly, a housing colony for its officers. The ISI bosses have argued with the Environment Ministry that they all were feeling very insecure in the existing building of ISI, located at Zero Point, on Aabpara Road in Islamabad. The al-Qaeda Also, it is because generals are taking desert land without water that they want to destroy the lower riparian rights by diverting water. The policy of enriching a few families is at the cost of pitting one province against another and weakening Pakistan.

The list is only of one District. Such lists exist all over Punjab and Sindh where a new breed of landlords has already been created through similar allotments. The Environment Minister secretly approved the summary for President Musharraf; the allotment of the Parkland would be a clear violation of international laws governing the environment. Anticipating attacks on its offices, or to build up a case for the lucrative Margalla Hills land, the ISI bosses have already closed one of the side roads linking the Zero Point-Aabpara road to Blue Area (commercial area) of the city and several armed personnel have been posted. Initially the Environment Ministry response was one of alarm, as giving away 100 acres on these hills would almost destroy the whole area as a natural park that needed to be preserved. When the ISI bosses learned about it, they immediate contacted the Minister and “convinced” her about the immediate need of 100 acres. The lady, naturally, could not resist the pressure. Some concerned officials of her Ministry, risking both their lives and jobs, held a meeting with the Minister and told her about the disastrous impact of her decision on the environment of Islamabad and Margalla Hills. She was also informed about the negative international reaction. She was also told that once the gates were opened, other government agencies will start moving in and soon the entire hill area will be grabbed by one government agency or the other activists or Indian agents could target this building, as it is located on one of the busiest road of Islamabad. This argument ignores the fact that the ISI building has never been targeted in the past, although it was the hub of all the activity during the entire war against the Soviet Union and the civil war inside Afghanistan.
