In a previous post, Riyasti Ashrafiya ka Pakistan – 1, a news item was highlighted. It was published in an Urdu daily Mashriq Peshawar on October 15, 2012. It states that Barrister Hassan Sajjad, son of former president and chairman Senate, Wasim Sajjad, has been appointed Adviser to the Interior Minister, Rehman Malik, and a notification to this effect has been issued.

This second highlight, published in The Express Tribune on November 15, 2012, states the following:

In Question-Hour session in the Senate: “two top ranking officers had been appointed by former premier Yousaf Raz Gilani in diplomatic missions abroad without fulfilling any obligatory criteria for the high-profile posts, Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said in her written reply to the Senate.  
The officials were posted abroad without passing the mandatory Central Superior Servies (CSS) examination, Khar explained. Gilani appointed Maliha Makhdoom, daughter of senior PPP Minister Makhdoon Amin Faheem, as first secretary in Dublin, Ireland, while Salis Kiani was appointed Minister Community Welfare London.”
