From Indus To Oxus - Book Promo 3

"Nothing had prepared me for the spiritual and emotional thunderbolts I had received in Afghanistan during my first visit. Those were the most decisive moments in the 22 years of my existence.

I had seen the desperate situation in Afghanistan.

The Soviets had reached our western borders, threatening Pakistan's existence in the immediate short term, emerging as the new unforeseen but real threat. It was obvious that before I could settle the scores with the Indians on the eastern theatre, the Soviets had to be pushed back from the western front in order to secure our strategic depth. That would mean I would have to forego my passion for a career in Pakistan army for my immediate duties of defense of Pakistan as a volunteer fighter in Afghanistan alongside the Afghan resistance.

For the next few years and perhaps even to this day, this dangerous and insanely adventurous life was to become my new career." -- From Indus to Oxus...
