He has co-authored a book on Indo-Pakistan relations, titled Diplomatic Divide. In 2007, he joined the Awami National Party (ANP). Humayun Khan: I was probably referring to the 1980s when Pakistan was home to Afghan mujahideen, and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) was the conduit for funds, arms and other support from the West to them.
