Lieutenant-General (R) Hamid Gul (20 November 1936 – 15 August 2015) HI(M), SBt, was a three-star general in the Pakistan Army, defence analyst and a former spymaster. Gul was notable for serving as the Director-General of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Pakistan's premier intelligence agency, between 1987 and 1989. During his tenure, Gul played an instrumental role in directing ISI support to Afghan resistance groups against Soviet forces during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, in cooperation with the CIA.

Gul was also widely credited for expanding covert support to Kashmiri nationalist groups against neighbouring rival India in the disputed Kashmir region from 1989, diverting focus from the fallout of the Soviet war. Gul earned a reputation as a "Godfather" of Pakistani geostrategic policies.Following an escalation of the Kashmir militancy in India and the Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan, he remained a controversial figure even after retirement, and was accused by the United States of having ties to shady groups. However, Gul denied the allegations.Gul's tenure as the director of the ISI coincided with Benazir Bhutto's term as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Later, Gul played a role in the establishment of the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad, a conservative political alliance formed to oppose Bhutto's Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).

On August 15, 2015, he died after suffering a brain hemorrhage.

In my openion General Hamid Gul is among the best Generals in the history of Pakistan. He is among the rare soldiers in Pakistan who have ideas that match with Pakistani nation. Most of the time when a general is present in a talk show, he sounds like he is representing US army and not the Pakistan army.
