Aroosa Alam is the daughter of Aqleem Akhtar one of the six kids she had from her marriage with a police officer. Aroosa Alam married a civil officer. Aroosa also started her journalism career and is a prominent journalist working in English newspapers.
In mid 2000, Aroosa Alam became the subject of Indian media over her association to Captain Amrinder Singh a prominent sikh politican from the Indian state of Punjab who also served as the Chief Minister of Punjab. Aroosa has denied all such news and maintained the stance that she is only a good friend of Captain Amrinder Singh. As per journalist Hamid Mir, since 2004, Aroosa Alam mostly stays in India instead of Pakistan. Aroosa Alam’s son Fakhre Alam gained fame in the field of showbiz.
Aroosa nipped all efforts at contact with her mother in the bud, claiming that not only was General Rani far too unwell to entertain visitors, but also, her brothers were completely against their mother appearing in the press. “My mother has been hurt sufficiently by the media already; we don’t want her private life exploited any further,” stated a stern Aroosa.
Aroosa, same like her mother also got successful in making relationship with the big guns of Pakistan. She allured Hamid Nasir Chatha, a Jat politician from Guranwala district and had made close contacts with him.
She started her carrier from a daily Muslim first ever-English newspaper from capital Islamabad. She worked on defence matters and diplomatic issues also.She also worked for Weekly Hurrmat Urdu as a diplomatic correspondent. Now adays, she is working for Daily Pakistan Observer Islamabad.
The owner of the paper Zahid Malik has close contact with Dr Qadeer Khan, Pakistan’s nuclear man, amous Dr Qadeer Khan father of Pakistan’s Atomic bomb. Dr. Khan has been house arrested these days.She joined SAFMA, a media NGO working in India -Pakistan and other SAARC countries after that she was elected senior Vice president of Rawalpindi Islamabad Press Club.
She had good relations with the then Indian Ambassador in Pakistan, Shiv Shankar Menon and due to the influence with Menon; she got a multi entry special visa of India. That is a rare privilege for a Pakistani journalist. Menon is now secretary foreign affairs of India.
She was also the member of that delegation which visited Srinagar last year that was first ever visiting of Pakistani journalists in Srinagar. She was a member of President Mushraff entourage that visited USA last year.
Both sides of the borders, SAFMA members have been considered suspicious links with hostile and archrival intelligence communities of India and Pakistan. Asoora reportedly has close ties with top brass of ISI, a source in Lahore said.
Like her mother, Aroosa had a way with men; and having lived in Islamabad, she had come to know quite a few men of power. So in the Eighties she launched on a career: she would write up stories she had learnt from her friends in the government, mostly army generals, and splash them in newspapers. She started in The Muslim, and later on graduated to Pakistan Observer.
One of her most sensational stories related to Brigadier Andrew Durcan of Gordon Highlanders, nicknamed Tartan Barrel on account of his girth, who was military attaché in the British high commission in Islamabad till two years ago. She revealed, without naming any names, that he was intimate with a woman in the Institute of Strategic Studies, and that they had been meeting in Islamabad and England. She was not very explicit about who was spying on whom. But the director of the Institute issued vehement denials, which gave the story even more publicity, and the British government recalled Durcan for having had an improper relationship.
Some federal ministers and high profile officials in Pakistan have been giving interesting comments on this issue. According to reports being published in Pak papers,a Pakistani foreign senior official declared the wedding as 38th CBMs between India and Pakistan.
During last three months, Asoora has bought a house worth Rs. 7 crores, the sources said. She reportdly came in touch with Amarinder Singh during the last two years and perhaps the meeting of both led to friendship. The sources said that she had visited Punjab during the election campaign. Presently she is reportedly staying in a guest house of a leading private insurance company in Delhi.
The sources said that Amarinder might not have married Asoora but their relationship was known well in top level political and media circle of India and Pakistan. The sources claimed that that Amarinder Singh had gifted her a house in Islamabad that was bought by Aroosa recently.
Early in March, Daily Jinha, a newspaper in Pakistani Punjab, reported that Amarinder Singh and Aroosa Alam had got married. It was also rumoured that he had bought her a house in Islamabad for 70 million rupees (that is only Rs 5.3 million in Indian currency). Such gossip about Amarinder Singh is not uncommon; stories were also afloat that he had married one Manpreet Sekhon. Both Amarinder Singh and Aroosa have denied the story, so probably there is nothing in it. But as will be clear from my revelations, the situation could bear watching.
