[Dawn] Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik
Pak politician, current Interior Minister under the Gilani administration. Malik is a former Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) intelligence officer who rose to head the FIA during Benazir Bhutto's second tenure. He later joined the Pak Peoples Party and was chief security officer to Bhutto. Malik was tossed from his FIA job in 1998 after documenting the breath-taking corruption of the Sharif family. By unhappy coincidence Nawaz Sharif became PM at just that moment and Malik moved to London one step ahead of the button men.

at the Presidency on important national issues including resumption of NATO supply routes and law and order situation in the country.
Speaking to media representatives after the meeting, Malik said the Pakistain People's Party (PPP)-led coalition government is following the guidelines and principles given by the parliament regarding resumption of supply routes through Pakistain.
He said both, PPP and JI, agree on the point that there should be no drone attacks inside Pakistain. "NATO supplies had been suspended to stop these drone attacks," he added.
The minister said that he respects Jamaat-e-Islami as the party has never acted against integrity of the country.
Both Houses of Parliament and all the provincial assemblies through their resolutions have demanded that drone attacks should not take place which is the unified demand of the entire nation, said the interior minister.
