An American goes to Pakistan: The Raymond Davis Case

By Shemrez

The Government of Pakistan, its electronic media and its people, have been captivated by the case of one Raymond Allen Davis, an ‘American’ allegedly using a pseudonym and a ‘diplomatic passport’ to come to Pakistan and shoot two Pakistanis in Lahore in broad daylight. The incident happened apparently in self-defense, and in addition to conspiracy-prone Pakistani society, a few questions remained unanswered which led to more and more sensationalism, and concealment of important facts.

First, there should be no doubt by now that ‘Davis’ is a US DoD contractor. His name seems more of a pseudonym because of General Raymond Gilbert Davis, a US Marines General who fought in World War II and retired from the post of Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps on March 31, 1972, after more than 33 years with the Marines. There is also Raymond Davis Jr., a chemist and physicist who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2002. This only rings a bell if one remembers the CIA Station Chief in Islamabad who got ratted out; Jonathan Banks, apparently another pseudonym, because web searches for the name yield websites related only to an American TV/film actor.

One Response to An American goes to Pakistan: The Raymond Davis Case

  1. Ali Liaquat says:

    Raymond Davis has killed 3 innocent Pakistani Citizens. Thus, now he been charged with murder under section 302 of Pakistan’s law. This means that if the charges against him are proved, he faces life imprisonment and a possible death sentence.

    But, if in case the Government of Pakistan helps him to get escape. Then it would be a shame for all of us. We want justice.. and we will make sure that we get it this time. Inshallah.
