Pakistan is daily getting exposed. However it is for the Intelligence Agencies to read the hidden narrative in this expose. Corrupt Pakistan Army Generals fatten while the Pakistan public is starving. Corrupt General Bajwa is exposed by a Pakistani Journalist giving details of his investments and properties in the United States and other countries. Can CIA, FBI, ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) investigate the money trails from Islamist Radical FATF Grey Listed, Terrorist Producing country Pakistan that hide Osama Bin Ladan.

This expose came from a Pakistani Journalist who published an article exposing General Bajwa on a website factfocus.com. However after reading this article and knowing the eco-system of Pakistan, we came to a conclusion that there is something more deeper than one General going corrupt.

We have mentioned in several of our previous articles, how Journalists are disappeared or murdered just for speaking against Pakistan Army. Here General Bajwa is not an ordinary retired officer in Pakistan Army. He was the acting Chairman of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Authority (CPECA). In our previous article Chinese Debt Trap Diplomacy: Noose Around The Neck of Naya Pakistan?, we had mentioned that Pakistan has signed a new Ordinance establishing CPEC Authority. The ‘CPEC Authority Ordinance, 2019’ aims at the establishment of the supra-constitutional ‘China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Authority (CPECA)’. This new apex institution for the CPEC will be entrusted with not only far reaching autonomy but also vast financial and administrative powers. This authority would freelance the management of the predatory infrastructure and power-generation projects under his direct command. Since the Authority has come into existence, its chairman has been a retired lieutenant-general Asim Bajwa.
With the unstable successive puppet governments at the Center in Pakistan, China wanted direct influence over the political and economic processes of the country. The demand for the establishment of a central CPEC institution with full authority over all corridor projects within Pakistan is not new – it is certainly not an idea created by PM Imran Khan and his administration. For a couple of years now an increasing number of reports have revealed that the civilian institutions responsible for the CPEC’s implementation are understaffed and overwhelmed, facing manifold difficulties such as lack of experience and subsequent ineffective project management, which in turn leads to delays and other hurdles in realizing projects. In fact, the demand to create a new ‘CPEC authority’ is strongly advocated by the Chinese, Pakistan military and related circles. Against this backdrop, the following statements can be made regarding the establishment of the CPECA:
Acting on orders of his Masters in China, Lieutenant General (R) Naeem Khalid Lodhi proposed the creation of a ‘powerful and competent coordination body for overseeing the project and underscored the need to protect Pakistan’s interests in the project while keeping it safe from external threats’. A new ‘CPEC authority’ would serve several functions, particularly consensus-building between the federal government and provinces, inter-agency coordination, capacity building, and project facilitation. In this context, it is of utmost importance to stress that the then civilian administration of PM Nawaz Sharif clearly rejected such proposals. One of the major reasons for that attitude was that civilians identified the establishment of a central CPEC body as an additional venue for the military to gain increased leverage within and control over CPEC-related decision-making.
So what suddenly happened that a country in which over hundred journalists have been disappeared and murdered by Pakistan Intelligence Agency ISI, suddenly this expose of the Top Pakistan General who is the Chairman of the most powerful organization CPECA whose authority cannot be challenged in any court of Law in Pakistan or even by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan himself?
Is it the rival factions in Pakistan Army that are blood thirsty against each other to earn a larger pie from the remaining shambles of Pakistan? Or is it China pulling the strings and using the Chinese modus operandi of throwing away the king by these kind of expose? Certainly a civilian journalist living in Pakistan cannot himself pull off this string. Then who is the pulling the strings in Pakistan?
Does it not expose Pakistan Intelligence Agency ISI hand behind General Bajwa fattening his belly? Pakistan Intelligence Agency ISI that has created a scare among Pakistanis that they keep tab of everyone in Pakistan is either a big joke that a General and his family members could fatten themselves with millions of US dollars or this Money Laundering in the United States of America was done with the connivance of Pakistan Army and Pakistan Intelligence Agency ISI.
Pakistan generally has a large presence and investment in UK where large number of Pakistanis live. UK is famous for Pakistani Grooming Gangs that kidnap and rape small girls aged from 8-12 years. Pakistanis like to invest in Londonistan that is a safe haven for all Pakistani Generals after their retirement. Why did General Bajwa invest in United States that too in name of his family members? Was all of the money was his families earned from bribes in different positions and by way of being the Chairman of CPEC Authority earning bribes in approval of projects?
If you look deeper, there is a big conspiracy being hatched by Pakistan in the United States. All the blood money, money earned from selling narcotics go as a commission to all Pakistan Generals, money from abductions and all kind of crimes including the disappearance of Baloch, Mohajirs, Sindhis, Pashtuns, Hazaras and abducting them for Organ Harvesting and killing them. So all Pakistani Generals and high ups officers have big sources of unaccounted money. They need to show this money is coming from legitimate sources.
Another Challenge before Pakistan is that their arch rival India is growing non-stop and it is beyond the means of bankrupt Terrorist Producing Nation Pakistan to form any kind of public opinion against India in United States. If American public has to choose between Terrorist Nation Paksitan and its arch rival India, American public will always chose India over Pakistan. Given such a shameful image Pakistan enjoys in United States they need lobbyists and Paksitanis who can gather for protests against India at different locations.
Recently several protests were organized in some US cities against India. Who funds all the Pakistanis to be transported to the protest sites? Recently some ordinances were introduced by Seattle City Council by Kshama Sawant and one USCIRF report by a committee headed by Anurima Bhargava that was full of criticism of India. We covered it in our previous article USCIRF Report Receives The Flak: Attempt To Derail US-India Relations
However these foreign funded politicians never spoke a word against Islamist Radical that is committing Genocide of Baloch, Mohajir, Sindhi, Pashtun, Ahamadiya, Hazara Muslims, Hinds and Christians in Pakistan. Why they turn blind eye towards Pakistan and are vocal in their opposition to India? Who funds and support their election campaigns? Where does the money come from for the Democrat politicians who show support for Terrorist Nation Pakistan against India? Is the blood money from Pakistan using these sham businesses not funding these campaigns?
The protests also need people in large numbers. How did large number of Pakistan’s who are living on US Taxpayers monies end up in United States? Is that these shell companies of Corrupt Pakistani Generals that sponsor the visas of Pakistanis who oblige by supporting the Generals by participating in riots and protests?
Organizing all these protests, campaigns, ordinances, lobbyists among Democrats, political donations for election campaigns need funds. When we are talking about millions or billions of US Dollars to be laundered by Pakistani Generals, there has to be a local source of income on books that should be financing these protests, campaigns, ordinances, political donations for election campaigns. Looking in that light this expose of General Bajwa shows that Bajwa alone cannot do this without the knowledge of Pakistan Intelligence Agency ISI which is now looking like a big joke.
While the Investments of Bajwa in United States should be investigated, the investments of all Pakistani Generals, officers, their family members in united states should also be investigated as it General Bajwa could be a tip of the iceberg and there may be big dirty money from Pakistan that may also be used to fund the riots, protests along with Antifa Terrorists in different US cities.
Here are some of the exrepts from the article published in factfocus.com:-
General Bajwa declared on oath his wife has no ‘business capital outside Pakistan’
The growth of the Bajwa family’s business empire in the United States and later in Pakistan directly matches the rise in power of retired General Asim Saleem Bajwa, who is now chairman of the country’s massive China-financed infrastructure project and a special assistant to the Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan Niazi.
Asim Bajwa’s younger brothers opened their first Papa John’s pizza restaurant in 2002, the year he went to work for General Pervez Musharraf as a lieutenant colonel on the military dictator’s staff.
Nadeem Bajwa, 53, who started as a delivery driver for the pizza restaurant franchise, his brothers and Asim Bajwa’s wife and sons now own a business empire which set up 99 companies in four countries, including a pizza franchise with 133 restaurants worth an estimated $39.9 million. Out of total 99 companies, 66 are main companies, 33 companies are branch companies of some of the main companies while five companies are dead now.
The Bajwa family’s companies spent an estimated $52.2 million to develop their businesses and $14.5 million to purchase properties in the United States, while Asim Bajwa and his department were encouraging Pakistanis to invest within their relatively undeveloped country. The businesses of the Bajwa family through different companies were named as Bajco Group.
Asim Bajwa’s sons joined the Bajco Group companies in 2015 and also started establishing new companies independent of the Bajco Group in Pakistan and in the United States after he became director general of ISPR and commander of the Southern Command.
Asim’s wife was a shareholder in all the foreign businesses from the very beginning. At present, Asim’s wife, Farrukh Zeba, is associated with or is a shareholder in 85 companies including 82 foreign companies (71 in United States, seven in UAE and four in Canada). The records of US state governments and other records related to companies show that some of these American companies (all jointly owned by Asim’s wife Farrukh Zeba) also have investments in real estate sector and own some thirteen commercial properties in the United States including two shopping centers. Estimated current net worth of businesses and properties of these companies jointly owned by Farrukh Zeba stands at $52.7 million.
In his declaration of assets and liabilities signed in June as special assistant to Prime Minister Imran Khan, Asim Bajwa declared an investment of $18,468 (rupees 3.1 million) in his wife’s name. Asim declared that he and his wife have no “Immovable Property Held outside Pakistan”. Asim also categorically declared that neither he nor his wife have any “Business Capital outside Pakistan”. If in his declaration, Asim wanted to declare his wife’s investments in United States by writing Rs3.1 million in the column of “Investments”, he could never have written word “NIL” in the specific column “Business Capital Outside Pakistan”. Asim Bajwa, 57, is also now the chairman of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
The six Bajwa brothers and their three sisters came from a middle-class family in a small town in Southern Punjab that was struck by tragedy while they were still young.
Their father, Muhammad Saleem Bajwa, a medical doctor, started as a government employee in early 1950s and then in 1960 joined Millat Hospital, a small private hospital in Sadikabad. Bajwa was shot to death on Nov. 25, 1976 while traveling on a Karachi express train.
His family’s assets at the time of his death included a few acres of agricultural land, a house in Sadiqabad, shares in a pharmaceutical company, and some shops in the city. Their father’s brother had to help them pay for family expenses.
The two eldest sons, Tanvir and Taloot went on to become doctors like their father and practiced in different cities of Punjab. The third son, Asim joined the army in 1984. Two brothers Nadeem and Faisal came to the United States in the early 1990s after completing their education from Punjab University in Lahore. The youngest brother, Abdul Malik, 49, went to the U.S. in 2002.
Management of worldwide businesses through a parent company:
In 2007, a few months after Asim Bajwa’s promotion to brigade rank by the military dictator, the Bajco companies were brought under the umbrella of one parent company, Bajco Global Management LLC, which was registered in the United States and Pakistan (liaison office). The official documents of this parent company show that Asim Bajwa’s wife, Farrukh Zeba, is an equal shareholder in the businesses of Bajco Group along with his five brothers. Farrukh Zeba is a housewife with no known business experience.

Asim declined to respond to Fact Focus when asked through different WhatsApp messages and a Twitter post if there are any bank accounts maintained in the name of his wife in the United States, and why he declared that he and his wife have no business capital outside Pakistan.
The changing websites
The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan, the organization which regulates companies in Pakistan, started deleting data of companies owned by the sons of Asim Bajwa from its official website after Fact Focus started this investigation. Fact Focus has maintained dated digital footprints of the record tempering by SECP.
In first week of August, Bajco Group website bajco.net went offline and later came online with a new interface and data. In the previous version of the website, the Bajco Group showed only 58 franchises of Papa John’s pizza restaurants in the U.S. and Canada and was not showing its investments in real estate. After questions about the assets were raised on social media and from Fact Focus, the Bajco Group started updating the website and partially revealed its real estate holdings publicly for the first time. Fact Focus is releasing complete details of all real estate properties acquired so far by the Bajco Group.
However, the updated website had not acknowledged the investments of Bajco Group and its associated enterprises in Pakistan until Aug. 25. These enterprises include investments in the human resource and telecom sectors of Pakistan. The website was being changed often in subsequent days. A complete track of the website, the digital footprint, was saved by Fact Focus. Also the old website still accessible via the internet archive Web Archive. Now the Bajco, according to the company’s new website, “has grown to become the largest privately held franchisee of Papa John’s International.”
Social Media responses by the Bajwa family:
Abdul Malik Bajwa, the president of the Bajco Group and brother of Asim Bajwa, stated on his Twitter account (@MalikBajwa) that neither Asim Bajwa nor the general’s sons are involved in Bajco.
Contrary to the claims, official documents obtained by Fact Focus from the government of UAE confirmed that a son of Asim has an association with Bajco Group Companies in the UAE (Document are annexed in the companies database given below). Furthermore, Bajwa’s wife is an equal shareholder with his five brothers in the parent company Bajco Global Management and co-owns 84 foreign companies in the United States, UAE, and Canada. The names of other Bajwa brothers are Tanvir, Taloot, Faisal, Nadeem and Abdul Malik. So both the claims made by Bajco Group president were not factual.
‘Indian attack on CPEC and role of RAW’
After questions were raised about Bajwa’s family business empire, a campaign on print and social media was launched to connect those asking questions with India’s foreign intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). Questions about properties of the former general’s family in the U.S. were termed as an attack on the CPEC project and a conspiracy by India, allegations with no basis in fact. Asim’s son specifically tweeted blogs and pictures portraying author of this story as working for Indian agency RAW and becoming part of India’s attack on CPEC.
Other than the residential properties bought by members of Bajwa family, Bajco Group also purchased and developed more than a dozen commercial properties, including two shopping centers from 2014 onward having total worth of $12.8 million. Bajco Group also has separate venture funding and international investment companies. Other than the name Bajco, companies with the names of Jalco, SB Global Investments, BRV Holding, and different companies with BRV names were established after 2012 under the umbrella of Bajco Group for investments in the real estate sector.
Other investments by Sons, wife and brothers of Lt Gen (R) Bajwa:
Three sons of Asim Bajwa — Muhammad, Eusha, and Azib — have direct and absolute ownership of companies in the sectors of mining, construction, marketing, real estate, beverages, fashion and cosmetic manufacturing and investments in Pakistan and three companies in the U.S which include two companies in the real estate sector.
Farrukh Zeba is also an equal shareholder in Bajco Group’s companies in Pakistan in telecom sector e.g. Bajco Telecom and Fast Telecom. Bajco Group has business operations in Pakistan but it hasn’t yet acknowledged it even on its new website.
The family also runs a Labor and Manpower services company in Pakistan by the name of Silkline Enterprises (owned by brothers Dr. Tanvir, Dr. Taloot and his son) which is also an associated enterprise of Bajco Group. This company was set up when Asim was commander of the Southern Command. Dr. Taloot’s son Ammar owns a public opinion polls and research company, Transcendent. Fact Focus couldn’t reach Tanvir and Taloot for their comments.
Independent of the Bajco Group, Asim’ three sons also own the following companies in Pakistan: a mining company named Krypton, a beverages company named Himalaya Waters (..Himalaya Waters..), fashion and cosmetics manufacturing and retail companies Emels Allure and Mochi Cordwaners, the marketing company Advanced Marketing, real estate development companies Scion Builders & Estates and Scion Builders LLP LLP LLP.
All these companies were set up after 2015 when Asim was either director general Inter-Services Public Relations (DG-ISPR) or was the commander of the Southern Command, a key position in the mineral-rich province of Balochistan. As DG-ISPR (The army’s media and public relation’s wing), Asim’s tenure was marred with multiple examples of curbing the press freedom. News channels critical to military’s political policies were shut down on cable networks (the only medium of distribution of channels in Pakistan) across the country. The strategy and techniques adopted to suppress press freedom during his tenure were witnessed for the first time in the country’s history.
Asim’s two elder sons, Eusha and Muhammad, also set up companies in the United States, which include Hyperdrive Solutions (set up in 2016 when he was DG-ISPR) and Scion Management Group (set up in 2018 when he was commander, Southern Command) and Scion Natura (set up in 2020).
His son Muhammad’s name also appears in the incorporation documents of three (out of total seven) Bajco Group companies in the UAE along with the name of Abdul Malik. These companies were set up in 2015 and 2016 when Asim was DG-ISPR and one company was set up in 2019 when Asim was commander, southern command.
Eusha’s name started appearing as “Authorized Agent” in the annual statements of five different Bajco Group companies in the U.S. since 2018. Before 2018, the name of his uncle Nadeem Bajwa appeared in the annual statements in the same capacity. Eusha is not shown as managing member in any documents of the companies owned by his mother and uncles.
Eusha purchased two residential properties in his name in the U.S. state of Ohio in June and August of 2018 when Asim was commander of Southern Command. Eusha, 32, co-owns companies in the U.S. and Pakistan but never registered himself with the tax authorities in Pakistan, according to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).
Asim’s mother, Fazeelat Muaab, has for years owned 5,000 shares in Sharex Laboratories (out 108,852 total shares issued by the company). These shares were never declared with FBR, the record shows. Different members of Bajwa family used to acquire and surrender or transfer shares of Sharex Laboratories in the past. This pharmaceutical company is not mentioned in Fact Focus database of companies as members of Bajwa family possessed a little percentage of the total shares of the company.
The following summary shows the parallels between Asim Bajwa’s rise to military/civilian power and his brothers rise in business power.

After construction of a commercial building on one of these six commercial properties, the total worth of properties made in this duration stands at $11.2 Million. The purchase price of one property purchased by Eusha cannot be confirmed so in not included in this total.

Table of details of numbers of companies and franchises and total investments made during different postings
Asim Bajwa’s adult sons started setting up companies and buying properties in the U.S. and Pakistan during this period. From the time he retired from the military in September 2019 until now, Bajco Group set up zero new companies, although his sons set up one real estate company in the U.S. and one in Pakistan.
Bajco Group set up 175 franchises overall during the last 18 years, out of which 133 are operational at present. Fact Focus estimates the total investment made for setting up these restaurant franchises to be $52.2 million and the net worth of operational franchises at present at $39.9 million.
Points to Ponder
Will FBI, CIA and other Intelligence Agencies investigate Pakistani Blood money in Election funding of certain Democrat Lobbysts and spread of Pakistan Network in the name of business investment? Are these sham companies responsible for getting in Pakistanis and sponsoring their VISAs in United States?
