Handwritten letter of Amanullah Khan - Confession of forming KLA.
This is the 2 page letter by Amanullah Khan written in his own handwriting to Hashim Qureshi and Dr. Farooq Haider. This letter is dated 5 April 1983, just 10 months before Mhatre’s murder. In this letter Amanullah writes to Dr. Farooq Haider and Hashim Qureshi that he has established KLA in the UK and requests them to form a branch of the same in Pakistan. KLA was the organisation which was responsible for the kidnapping and murder of Indian diplomat Ravindre Mhatre, which paved the way for Maqbool Bhat's hanging.
Also below this two page letter is a copy of page 150/151 from Amanullah Khan's book 'Jehd-e-Musalsal', which he wrote somewhere mid-nineties. In this book he denies that he ever knew a KLA existed and states that KLA was responsible for the kidnapping and murder of Mhatre of which he had no knowledge at all. Why this contradiction? Why writing a letter in his own handwriting stating that he formed KLA and then denying in his book that he had something to do with KLA and even stating he never knew of its existence or actions?
