March 2001-INTERVIEW Pakistan Army through eyes of Pakistani Generals
The SSG captured a dispatch rider of the Indian Army on the Jammu Samba Road on night 3/4 September 65 carrying the mail of the Indian 1st Armoured Division. This mail bag was taken by Director Aviation
Brigadier Mahmud to the Pakistan Army Director Military Intelligence (DMI) Brigadier Irshaad who dismissed it as an Indian deception plan! Thus the Pakistan Army Director Military Intelligence (DMI) Irshaad insisted that the Indian 1st Armoured Division was at Jandiala Guru, East of Amritsar while in reality it was in Samba area right next to our jugular vein in Sialkot sector! Thus once the Indian 1st Armoured Division attacked us opposite Chawinda on 8th
September we were caught off balance. And then kept reacting to situations. The initiative had been lost, thanks to intelligence. The move of the formation takes 7-10 days, which acts as warning time.
Interestingly instead of being punished for his absolute incompetence Irshaad was promoted three star and commanded 1 Corps in 1971 war.
