Complete English transcript
“Today is July 24, and tomorrow, it will be July 25. I am Sultan Amir, son of Ghulaam Amir, and people know me as Colonel Imam. I am in the custody of Lashkar Jhangvi Al Alami, Abdullah Mansoor. I sent my statements and CD messages to the government several times, but no
attention has been given until now.”
“You know what mentality these people have and what are they up to. Khalid Khwaja has already been killed and we might receive an even harsher treatment, which will be damaging for Pakistan.”
“They cannot be pressured by anyone. They are well organized.
According to them, my previous statements have not been released to the media either. I appeal, Mr. President, Mr. Prime Minister, DG ISI (General Pasha), General Hamid Gul (ex-DG ISI) and General Aslam Beg (ex army chief), to accept the demands of Lashkar Jhangvi Al Alami as soon as possible.”
“You people know about the services I rendered for my country. If the Pakistan government does not care about me, then I don’t have any reason to care about the nation either, and [I] will reveal all the weaknesses of our nation.”
“Whatever game is being played with Afghanistan, India, Russia, and America, I know about all of it. It is now for the Pakistani government to decide. Four months have now passed but you don’t care about me. I am fed up of spending my whole life all the time in a basement.
“It should be conveyed to my family to pray for me and to take care of the children. I also want it to make it clear to my son Nauman Umar to resign from his government post. At the moment, they don’t seem to care about me, so why would they make a fuss over him in the future either.”
“Wasalam, your well wisher, Sultan Amir.”

Colonel Sultan Amir Tarar (died January 2011), best known as Colonel Imam, was a Pakistan Army officer and special warfare operation specialist. He was a member of the Special Service Group (SSG) of the army, an intelligence officer of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and served as Pakistani Consul General at Herat, Afghanistan. A veteran of the Soviet war in Afghanistan, he is widely believed to have played a key role in the formation of the Taliban, after having helped train the Afghan Mujahidin on behalf of the United States in the 1980s.

Colonel Imam, who was a commando-guerrilla warfare specialist, had trained Mullah Omar and other Taliban factions. Colonel Imam remained active in Afghanistan's civil war until the 2001 United States led War on Terrorism, and supported the Taliban publicly through media.

He was kidnapped along with fellow ISI officer Khalid Khawaja, British journalist Asad Qureshi and Qureshi's driver Rustam Khan on March 26, 2010. Khawaja was killed a month later. Qureshi and Khan were released in September 2010. Imam was killed in January 2011.

The group responsible for his death refuse to release his body to his family. The group has yet to identify itself to officials. Last year in March, Colonel (R) Imam and journalist Asad Qureshi were abducted and released by an unknown militant group which called itself Asian Tigers. Former ISI officer Khalid Khawaja was also kidnapped and later his body was found near a stream in Karam Kot with note attached saying he was with the CIA and ISI, about seven kilometres south of North Waziristan’s main town of Mirali.
