Indd 19 11/29/10 9:28 AM 20â•‡ /â•‡ zia ’ s jihad With the overthrow, Zia transformed Pakistan and altered the course of its future more than anyone since Jinnah. He can also rightly be called the grandfather of global Islamic jihad. Born on August 12, 1924, to a father who worked in army general headquarters in Delhi, Zia had military ties from the outset. In 1944 he joined the British army in India and fought with its Indian forces in Italy against the Nazis. Between 1962 and 1964 he received training at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, then returned home to fight in the 1965 war with India as a tank commander.
Militants from around the Islamic world—from Syria, Iraq, Algeria, and elsewhere— were migrating to Pakistan, mainly to Peshawar, to help the mujahedin fight in the “holy war” against Soviet forces. According to Robert Gates, then Casey’s deputy director for intelligence and the man responsible for all intelligence analysis, Most fought with the Islamic fundamentalist Muj groups, particularly that headed by Abdul Rasul Sayyaf. We examined ways to increase their participation, perhaps in the form of some sort of “international brigade,” but nothing came of it.
Washington strongly opposed further proliferation of nuclear weapons in the world and urged Pakistan not to seek the bomb. The new American president in 1977, Jimmy Carter, sought to rejuvenate the nonproliferation regime begun by John F. Kennedy but got nowhere with Islamabad. The relationship soured further when Zia overthrew Bhutto. Carter rightly saw the coup as a serious setback for democracy in Pakistan and was particularly anxious that Zia not compound the problem by executing Bhutto. He appealed to Zia repeatedly not to go forward with the trumped-up charges and the trial.
