Pak politician, Interior Minister under the Gilani government. Malik is a former Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) intelligence officer who rose to head the FIA during Benazir Bhutto's second tenure. 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. He had to give up the interior ministry job because he held dual Brit citizenship.

Leaders of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) have said that India should refrain itself from having dialogues with Pakistain. Former chief of the party Venkaiah Naidu said terrorism and cricket can not go along. “On one hand they (Pakistain) support terrorism and on the other a cricket series is being host for them…this can’t go side by side,” he said.

“Malik appears misinformed on the matter,” Shinde informed the Rajya Sabha (Parliament.)

Shinde said that through the documents, provided by Islamabad regarding detentions of Saeed on three instances, it is clear that he was arrested for other reasons and not for his role as a conspirator in 2008 attacks.

He pointed out that the Pak interior minister “has been telling us repeatedly that he had arrested Saeed thrice and that, on each occasion, he was let off by the courts for lack of evidence.”
