Another trial has put the ISI's director-general, Brigadier General pasha, at the center of the plot.
pasha said he offered his resignation twice to the head of the army, but it apparently has not been accepted.
I chose the most elaborate: a supposedly hour-long pasha that set me back roughly $100.
The senior Pakistani sources say that pasha was never keen on the ISI job in the first place.
pasha reportedly made no specific demands on the withdrawal of U.S. personnel.
Their joy is such as that of the pasha of a seraglio; they revel with ideas, they get drunk at the founts of intellect.
The horse was killed; the man is now a bey in the pasha's service.
The daughter of a poor goatherd, whom I picked up from the mire, is now the premier pipe-filler of the pasha of Salonica.
This is attributed to the reluctance to be soldiers for the glory of the pasha.
Dirham kissed the hem of the pasha's garment and promised that he would carefully perform everything.
Turkish honorary title formerly given to officers of high rank, 1640s, from Turkish pasha, earlier basha, from bash "head, chief" (no clear distinction between -b- and -p- in Turkish), from Old Persian pati- "master," from PIE *poti- (see potent) + root of shah. Earlier in English as bashaw (1530s).
