Pakistan’s National Security Adviser, Mahmud Ali Durrani has been fired and not given any reason [1].  Earlier in the day, he had admitted that Kasab, the lone terrorist caught for Mumbai Attacks was a Pakistani.. in no uncertain terms!

“I think it probably would be true now that for example [Mohammed Ajmal Kasab] had Pakistani connections,” said Durrani. “So one cannot deny there was zero link with Pakistan. How much, who all was involved, that we have to investigate.”

It seems he was fired for revealing the alleged Pakistani connections to the media without privately consulting the prime minister although the Government has given no reason for his firing!
