The intelligence officers, who are mostly hired from all the three armed forces, of the said organization are very much loyal and devoted to their people and country. They know how to tackle and handle the threats and the enemies of the nation very efficiently. They put Country/Nation first and Agency before self. Their all actions and deeds are based on the Teachings of Islam, Faith, Discipline, Truth, and uphold the highest standards of conduct.
The main objective of ISI is to collect the intelligence data through different means and to safeguard the national interests. The job is to identify and block the threats to the state and its citizens, and to reinforce the country's security and safety according to the teachings of Islam and the constitution.
The ISI was structured to be manned by officers from the three main military services, and to specialize in the collection, analysis and assessment of external intelligence, either military or non-military. At first, the ISI focused primarily on domestic espionage, such as tapping telephone conversations and monitoring internal political affairs and these all activities were same like other agencies of different countries, in which those were already involved.
Now its primary objectives are not only to safeguard the National Security and Pakistani interests, but also, reinforcing Pakistani power base in the region. Other responsibilities includes, monitoring the political and military developments in adjoining countries, which hafve direct bearing on Pakistan's national security and in the formulation of its foreign policy and to collect foreign and domestic intelligence in such cases. Co-ordination of intelligence functions of the three military services and to keep vigilant surveillance over its cadre, foreigners, the media, politically active segments of Pakistani society, and diplomats of other countries accredited to Pakistan and Pakistani diplomats serving outside the country.
This honorable organization known as “ISI” is really very sincere and loyal to country and performs such heroic silent deeds like we normally used to hear in our daily lives, historical stories and war magazines. May ALLAH keep blessing on Pakistan.
