'Face reader' to be Pak's 'secret weapon' during Feb 25 talks with India

By Super Admin

Islamabad, Feb.24 (ANI): The Pakistani delegation coming to India to take part in the foreign secretary-level talks on February 25 also includes a 'physiognomy' expert, who would read the faces of the Indian officials and predict what they 'actually' intend to say.

Pakistan's 'treasured guide' Director-General for South Asia, Afrasiab Hashmi, is said to be an expert in judging a person's character by reading his/her facial structure.

Though Hashmi has not received any special training in this unique art, many believe he harboured the skill right from birth.

Hashmi had previously served as Pakistan's deputy high commissioner in India, China, Austria and the United Nations in New York.

According to sources, he not only has the ability to read faces, but can also predict the immediate future.

Hashmi first came into limelight when he predicted that then Pakistan President General Zia-ul-Haq would not be able to attend the UN General Assembly in August 1988.The very next day General Zia's plane crashed.

According to some accounts, General Zia knew about Hashmi's skills and is believed to have sent him a huge portrait of himself to know about his future. However, it is not clear what Hashmi told Zia at that time.

One of the officials who worked with Hashmi in India revealed that a top Army officer of the Indian Army consistently enquired about his future from Hashmi.

According to the official, during a party , Hashmi had told the Indian Army official that his wife suffered from severe migraine, just after shaking hands with her.

"He had also told her that the pain was due to her habit of excessive reading, which surprised her husband who dashed to his residence the next day for further information about his own home affairs," The News quoted the official, as saying. (ANI)
