Pakistan establishes the IB (Intelligence Bureau) and MI as its two intelligence organisations upon its independence (Military Intelligence).
However, in response to these two organisations’ subpar performance, ISI was established in 1948 for the purpose of gathering intelligence and disseminating it across the army, navy, and air force.
It was formally given the responsibility to protect Pakistan’s interests and the country’s security both inside and outside of its borders in 1950.
