GAME OVER: Zaid Hamid Lost, Zia ul Haq Won. By Anas Abbas

March 27, 2010

By Anas Abbas

Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid, a darling of Pakistani elite, a motivator for Pakistan army officers, an absurdity for Pakistani liberals and an idol for Pakistani conspiracy theorists, has been in the headlines of Pakistani media for almost three years now. During this time, he has been popular because of his motivational and turbulent rants against the Jews and Hindus and his extraordinary defence of Pakistan army and its oppressive policies. Even prominent journalist Seymour Hersh recently reported that Pakistani army officers were increasingly influenced by his philosophy.

He was launched by the ISI (Pakistani Intelligence Agency) in 2007 to defend army’s interest on television after the media became extremely critical of dictator, General Musharaf and his policies, especially the dismissal of Justice Iftikhar Chaudry and other judges and the Red Mosque counter terrorist operation in November 2007. General Musharraf was in uniform so any criticism against him by opposition political parties, civil society, lawyer’s movement or media was also an indirect criticism of Pakistan army/Establishment. In this extreme situation, as a response to the criticism by the increasingly powerful electronic media, the ISI and the Pakistani establishment launched three ideologues to defend their interests.

  1. Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid
  2. Ahmed Qureshi
  3. Dr. Shireen Mazari.

Over this time, Zaid Hamid did a fantastic job in promoting the interest of Pakistani Establishment/Army. He defended their policies and narrated inaccurate and biased accounts of Pakistan’s history (especially Partition 1947 and Army’s Operation Searchlight in 1971) on Pakistani television channels, universities, and on Facebook. He glorified the imperialist invaders like Mohmmad Bin Qasim, Mehmood Ghaznavi and Ahmed Shah Abdali and praised the so called gallantry of modern terrorists and misogynists such as Mullah Omer and Gulbuddin Hekmatyaar (Both supported by the ISI). He exploited the Islamic Hadith by promoting false conclusions, one of which was that criticism against the Pakistan army was HARAM (forbidden) in Islam.

In a nut shell, he has been a fruitful investment of the ISI who not only defended the interests of the army but also ideologically motivated the elite and upper middle class Pakistani youth who were increasingly becoming his fans and were chanting hateful cliches such as:


What was ridiculous was that these groups of people motivated by Zaid Hamid would publicly criticize the West and yet dressed in western, skin tight, and revealing attires. This phenomenon then came to be known as “Sexy Islamism” which is, basically, an ideology that is ostensibly Islamic but one which accommodates all the luxuries that have been strictly forbidden by traditional Islamists such as music, dance, sex integration and Maria B.  In other words, the foundation of Zaid Hamid’s ideology has been “insecurity” from the Jews and Hindus, thus keeping the Pakistanis in fear while giving them a hope that only the Army is capable of defeating these “hostile” communities. Therefore, unlike the sacrifice required to join groups of typical traditional islamists, to become a member of Zaid Hamid’s camp has been very easy since the only requirement is to believe in a hateful ideology against Jews and Hindus and to glorify Pakistan’s army. For more on Zaid Hamids recruitment process vs Islamists read here.

However, just like every intelligence agency operation has a risk of backfiring, and- voila!- this was no exception. Ever since Zaid Hamid started his campaign, he has been accused of following Yousuf Ali (a former Pakistani Army officer who is popularly known as Yousuf Kazzab). According to a Pakistani court, Ali claimed to be a Prophet and was subsequently sentenced to death. This controversy was initially underestimated by Zaid Hamid and the forces that were protecting him but recently it got an impetus when a video was released showing Zaid Hamid defending Yousuf Ali and criticizing the court ruling against him. This infuriated the fanatic religious mafia in Pakistan and eventually they became the biggest impediment in his campaign. The impact of this opposition was clearly manifested in the recent disastrous turnout in the much awaited “Tekmeele Pakistan” event which, according to Zaid Hamid, was expected to attract a 100,000 people at Minare Pakistan, Lahore. Due to this controversy, the elements which were initially allied with Zaid Hamid are now starting to alienate themselves, these include the religious scholar Dr Israr Ahmed, Journalist Ahmed Qureshi and the ever so “green colour” movement known as the Pakistan Youth Revolution.

There are now strong speculations that Zaid Hamid is a thing of the past and he will soon leave the country to escape the religious zealots who are after him because of his alleged association with a blasphemous person.

If this is really the beginning of the end of Zaid Hamid then this shows the monopoly of islamists on religious matters in Pakistan. Even though Hamid’s ideology is based on absurd theories, it struck a chord with the elite and the middle class youth. The power of traditional Islam in Pakistan remains unaffected. It is well known that cases of alleged blasphemy in Pakistan end in either the accused’s death or banishment.

To convey my opinion about the whole controversy and Zaid Hamid’s downfall I have created a fictionalized setting below:

During the conduction of a trial in the Pakistani court of Zaid Hamid’s charge of blasphemy, he fled the country having escaped from police custody. With the assistance of his ardent and wealthy supporter Maria B, Zaid Hamid has finally landed (through a tourist visa) in K-PAX which is a country situated about 2000 miles away from Pakistan (Also a favourite holiday destination of Maria B during summers due to its Exotic beaches). K-PAX is a democratic country whose constitution promotes freedom of religion ideology and speech. It is known to be a peaceful country where all citizens irrespective of race, religion, caste or sex are considered as equal and the military is confined to the barracks. In other words it’s an ideal pluralistic secular country where the religion is separate from the state.

In K-PAX, Zaid Hamid has finally decided to apply for asylum due to threats to his life in Pakistan. However, his asylum application is rejected after the immigration officer reviewed his case and found him to be capable of stirring up religious hatred amongst the citizens of K-PAX and due to the hate mongering speeches that he has given earlier against K-PAX and its predominantly secular Muslim population during his golden days in Pakistan. However, frustrated by this decision, Zaid Hamid has filed a case in the court requesting to review his application. Currently a well-known Human Rights NGO lawyer, Miss Asma Hoodboy, is representing Zaid Hamid in the city court. K-PAX Immigration Department has hired Anas Abbas to represent their case.

The court proceedings are scheduled to be held today and the decision is also to be announced subsequently in the same proceeding. Prominent analysts also believe that the court will try to wrap up the case and give its verdict today.

Renowned Judge Amar Akbar Anthony has been appointed to hear the case.

The case details are as mentioned here under:

Case no: 786BT

Zaid Hamid VS State.

The initial arguments are presented by the Plaintiffs

Asma Hoodboy:

Your Honour, I am representing Zaid Hamid, who has applied for asylum in our country and I have reviewed his application. The issue in conflict here is that he has been unfairly refused a right to asylum by the Immigration Office. The fact of the matter is that there is nothing in our law that forbids him to reside in this territory: he has been accused of blasphemy in Pakistan, and some Islamic hardliners have issued a fatwa in favour of his execution.  Mass campaigns are being mobilized against him on charges of blasphemy. These elements are drawing their inspirations from an early 20th century terrorist popularly known as “Ghazi Illamuddin Shaheed” who murdered a Hindu publisher on the basis of a blasphemous book. Mr Zaid Hamid  therefore has a legitimate reason to apply and we should not hesitate to give him asylum. We therefore protest against this decision of the Immigration Office.

Anas Abbas:

Your Honour, I fully support the Immigration Office’s decision in the case of Zaid Hamid. The truth of the matter is that there is a legitimate and compelling reason why my client (Immigration Office) rejected this application. The consideration of an asylum candidate is not limited to it’s fitting the set criteria, infact the immigration officer has to go through the tedious task of weighing the pros and cons of granting asylum. In doing so the safety and well being of the home country is of supreme importance. It’s not that Zaid Hamid is legally not qualified to apply for asylum in this country but it’s a violation of Article 24D which states that “any person who is found to be intentionally using threatening words or acts in such a way as to stir up hatred against people of other religions, caste or ideology is not allowed to be granted asylum for the purposes of this Act”. The article further clearly states that we oppose extremism in all its forms and are determined to stop those who wish to spread extremism, hatred and violent messages in our communities from entering our country.

Asma Hoodboy:

I agree with my learned friend to the extent of the correctness of the Article, however, i also realise and wish to point out to my learned friend that he fails to understand that there is a human life at stake here! If we do not give him asylum then in this extreme situation, he will be forced to go back to his own country where he is likely to get killed or that the court passes a verdict of committing Blasphemy, the sentence of which is capital punishment. Therefore on humanitarian grounds we must grant him asylum. As it is the fundamental Right of Life we are talking about here.

Anas Abbas:

I humbly suggest that it is the concern of the Pakistani state on how they best protect their citizens. We are responsible for protecting our citizens and we should not compromise the security of our state by granting this man asylum. Although I respect Miss Asma’s humanitarian ground argument, I suggest this man should try other options such as that of seeking police protection of his own country with the help of Amnesty International or any other such NGO.

Asma Hoodboy:

We cannot afford that as Pakistan is an intolerant society and blasphemy has been a very sensitive issue there from the very start. The decisions of the courts in Pakistan are much driven by, and are likely to submit to the media and public pressure and it’s very likely that he will be awarded a death sentence. A judge in Pakistan cannot acquit him even he finds no evidence of blasphemy because there is immense public pressure. In a similar case of Blasphemy where Arif Iqbal Hussain Bhatti J was assassinated on 19 October 1997 after acquitting two people who were accused of blasphemy.

Judge Amar Akbar Anthony:

Do u have the evidence of the danger to his life?

Asma Hoodboy:

Yes Your Honour, here they are:

Fatwa from Jamia Binoria (A Famous Madrassa in Karachi)

Pictures and Videos of the protests and threats against Zaid Hamid including videos of his burnt effigy.

A Police report of a recent attack on Hamid’s Think-Tank by a mob of over a 100 people.

Judge Amar Akbar Anthony:

Mr Abbas would you like to say something here?

Anas Abbas:

Your Honour!! Miss Asma is trying to portray an extremist as a good human being! We must not forget what Zaid Hamid’s views are regarding our country. When he was in Pakistan, he issued various statements calling for the destruction of our secular society. He has referred to our people as the agents of Zionists, and has regularly issued statements against the Hindus and Jewish communities. Secondly, he might have links with the Jihadists, as recently he is also been accused of assassinating a Muslim cleric in Karachi and an FIR was filed against him. He has repeatedly claimed in his lectures about some Jihadi organizations backing him. Therefore on these grounds we should not let him enter due to possible risks to our national security. We should ban him they way we did the terror preaching cleric Anwar Aulaki.

Judge Amar Akbar Anthony:

Miss Asma, what do you wish to say in reply to this?

Miss Asma Hoodboy:

Your Honour,

Yes! Zaid Hamid is a hate preacher, but there are two important things that we should also consider. One is Zaid Hamid’s possible murder if he goes back to Pakistan and I have already mentioned the consequences of this before. Secondly, Zaid Hamid has now finally decided to repent his deeds and he has pledged to become a responsible and tolerant citizen. I can assure that Zaid Hamid would not abuse the communities residing in this country.

I can also present strong evidence to prove that Zaid Hamid is serious in his wish to reform and rehabilitate and for this, I would like to call a witness.

Judge Amar Akbar Anthony:

Permission Granted

Asma Hoodboy:

May I ask Dr Abdus Salam to please come to the witness box.

Your Honour!!

Dr Salam is the head of Muslim council of K-PAX.

Dr Salam,

Can you please tell the court why do you think Zaid Hamid’s application for asylum should not be rejected?

Dr Salam.

Well Your Honour!!

Mr. Zaid Hamid has recently approached the Muslim Council of K-PAX for help regarding his application for asylum. He was deeply regretful and apologetic for all the provocative statements he has issued against non Muslim communities in general. I had a meeting with him and after going through his file, I can confidently say that we should give him a chance to stay here because we are very much sure that things would become extremely difficult for him if he goes back. As evidence, I can present Zaid Hamid’s apology letter and his new statement regarding his current views that he gave to the Muslim council.

Anas Abbas:

Your Honour I seek your permission to cross-examine Dr. Salam.

Judge Amar Akbar Anthony:

Permission granted!

Anas Abbas:

So you are confident Dr. Salam that Mr. Hamid will respect the Constitution of K-PAX?

Dr Salam:


Anas Abbas:

Dr Salam, what about this false prophet controversy regarding Zaid Hamid? Don’t you think this would disturb the harmony among Muslim communities here?

Dr. Salam:

Look I am not interested in any false prophet controversy, and I believe that Zaid Hamid has already made it clear that he believes Prophet Muhammad to be the final prophet. To be honest it’s Zaid Hamid’s right how he interprets Islam and who he calls a prophet and that right has been given to him by Islam.

Verse (2:256) of Holy Quran says that “there is the freedom to adopt or forsake whatever religion one likes”.

So if God has granted this freedom to Zaid Hamid, then who am I or you, Mr. Abbas, to question that?

Anas Abbas:

Dr. Salam, I respect that, but how can you defend the same person who has previously declared you a Zionist agent and an apostate too, when he was in Pakistan?-

Asma Hoodboy:

–          May I interpret Your Honour- but that question is out of this case!

Judge Amar Akbar Anthony:

Objection overruled!

Anas Abbas:

Yes Dr. Salam, Please answer my question, and tell us how the Muslim community in K-PAX is taking this blasphemous issue of Zaid Hamid? Don’t you think we might see demonstrations here in relation to this false prophet controversy?

Dr Salam:

I am not concerned with what Zaid Hamid or XYZ calls me. I don’t have to answer to them, and my God knows whose agent I am, and that’s what I care about. It’s the people who should decide about me by looking at my deeds and works. Secondly Zaid Hamid has already apologized to me on this, and I respect that. After all, why should I doubt his apology? I don’t have the power to know what’s going on inside Zaid Hamid’s heart, and only God knows what is inside men’s hearts- as it is stated in the Quran (4:94)

Regarding your second question, yes, there are few people here in K-PAX who are concerned about Zaid Hamid and links to Yousef but it’s their right and freedom to oppose him and one can hope that these people will realize one day that religion is a personal matter. But the good news is that majority of people here in Muslim community oppose him only because of his Jihadi fascist ideology and they do not hold any personal vendetta or grudge against him.

The Muslim community is very tolerant here and they will come to forgive him, once Zaid Hamid apologizes to them for the abuses he had committed earlier.

Anas Abbas:

That’s all Your Honour.

Judge Amar Akbar Anthony:

Ms. Asma, do u have anything else to say?

Asma Hoodboy:

No Your Honour.

Amar Akbar Anthony J:

The Court is adjourned till 6pm. The verdict will be announced once the court resumes.

6pm, City Court

Judge Amar Akbar Anthony:

After listening to the arguments of both parties, I have reached the decision that Zaid Hamid does not qualify for recognition as a refugee under the Asylum Act due to his extremely hateful speeches against K-PAX Muslim communities and glorification of violence against the Non-Muslim communities. Due to the significant risk of the danger to his life based on his religious beliefs and based on the evidence shown by Asma Hoodboy, we are letting Zaid Hamid to stay temporarily in K-PAX.

The Immigration department is ordered to monitor Mr Zaid Hamid’s rehabilitation closely and Dr Abdus Salam is expected to give updates to the Immigration Office regarding this issue. The final decision to allow or disallow the grant of Asylum rests with the Immigration Office which will decide this matter after a review of Zaid Hamid’s beliefs post rehabilitation.

Asma Hoodboy:

“Thank you, Your Honour.”

The court case ended and Zaid Hamid looks relieved on his way out of the court.

I have tried to use this fictionalized case setting of Zaid Hamid to show the beauty of secularism and the importance of religious tolerance.

Referring to the K-PAX court case above, had there been religious tolerance and respect for different opinions in Pakistan, Zaid Hamid would not have lost much support in the aftermath of Yousef Ali’s controversy.

Throughout the past 3 years, Zaid Hamid has continued to promote hatred and extremism. From Asma Jehangir, Pervez Hoodboy and Hussain Haqqani to party leaders in Baluchistan, Pakhtunkuwa and Karachi, he has been like a broken record, labeling people as CIA, RAW, or MOSSAAD agents. His unsubstantiated credit to the army and establishment has been well documented and he has been known for portraying them as an infallible force. But now the same Zaid Hamid is the victim of the policies of the Pakistan Army.

The army and establishment have fueled religious extremism and anti Indian sentiment throughout their existence in order to justify their interference in the civilian government structure and their so called legitimacy to rule Pakistan.

The brutal era of Zaid Hamid’s favourite, Zia ul Haq, is the key period where religious intolerance was the state policy and the official school curriculum in public schools was transformed in order to cultivate dogmatic views in the upcoming generations of Pakistan. The goal was that they will justify the military rule and its support for the Mullah Alliance in the strategic Afghanistan at the cost of millions of Afghani/Pashtun lives. Because of these policies of the Pakistan army, who take their inspiration from terrorists like Mohammed Bin Qasim, today religion is the most sensitive issue in Pakistan and everything revolves around it. The power of religious Ulema is evident from the reaction to the fatwa against Zaid Hamid which has put a question mark on his legitimacy.

This story would have taken a very different turn in the fictional country K-Pax, a secular society. Any threat to Hamid’s life would have been judged based on his status as a citizen and without much regard to his religious inclinations, blasphemous or not. But in Pakistan there is a notion that secularism is a precursor of a society of loose morals and excessive alcohol consumption. The true definition is, however, that religion has no influence, whatsoever, on the matters of the state and that every citizen, regardless of their belief, is judged equally in front of the law.

I must add that now after the allegations, Zaid Hamid is pleading people to search for ‘proper’ evidence before labelling anyone a ‘Kafir.’  But his plea is falling on deaf ears and rightly so because in Pakistan the popular doctrine is that people ignore evidence and rely more on emotions. Moreover, Hamid’s blatant hypocrisy has been brought to light by journalist Fasi Zaka, who pointed out in his recent article that:

“Whenever Yousaf Kazzab is brought up before Zaid, he insists that the Quranic rules of evidence should be used and false allegations shall take accusers to hellfire. Funny, it never occurs to him to use the same Quranic principles when he randomly labels anyone who inconveniences him in his thirst for followers as a traitor and an agent”

He is now in danger of getting assassinated on allegations of blasphemy. Does he not know who promoted this dreadful blasphemy law in Pakistan which eventually became the source of conviction of his friend Yousef? Who is responsible for the murder of thousands of Christians who died in Pakistan due to this Blasphemy Law? Who sowed the seeds of these religious bigots who he is now calling “fasadees”?

Well, Mr Hamid should know that it is none other than his “Infallible Army”. The Army who, according to his account, is prophesied to take over India; the army who in reality is an American dog but for him it’s the solution of all problems in Pakistan.

There are valid reasons why we must continue to oppose Zaid Hamid and his Green Mommy Daddy elite, nationalist cult. These groups are responsible for promoting a Fascist ideology, for disturbing inter-faith harmony; they have distorted history to promote a false propaganda to undermine the struggle of the Balochis and the Pakhtuns. Many rebuttals have been written about Zaid Hamid’s false theories and they are far more reasonable than the Yousef Ali issue.

The absurdity of his theories has been shown in a number of articles and video such as :

In conclusion, I must say that I am not happy with the sudden downfall of Zaid Hamid despite my strong dislike for him. Although his downfall is a good thing, it happened for all the wrong reasons. Religion, not reason, was a source of his downfall. I would also add that even if the allegations against Hamid following Yousef Ali are true, it would still not make a difference. Our opposition of Hamid’s ideology should be based on reason, not on religion or any other personal belief of his.

    Source of Zaid Hamid’s Influx “Kashf” in the Light of Fundamentals of Islam:

    Not only against against Quran and Hadith the Historical Facts which were presented by Mr Zaid Hamid were also wrong to the hilt, he is declaring 1857 a Jihad whereas during 1857 uprising there were many Hindus and Sikhs also participated in the same. Jihad cannot be fought by Non-Muslims. BrassTacks Zaid Hamid Spiritual-Naimatullah Shah Wali’s Predictions Eps2 Part 4 / 5

    He is saying that Raj discourage Madressah and promoted English [what about Translation of Quran done by many Scholars in English and Hadith as well]

    Shah Waliullah Dehelvi’s son Shah Abdul Aziz issued a Fatwa for Muslim to learn and study English and there is no sin in it. This Fatwa was issued much earlier before Sir Syed Ahmed Khan [Ref: Rood-e-Kauthar and Aab Kauthar by Sheikh Ikram]

    Zaid is almost attributed “Knowledge of Unseen” to Naimatullah Shah Wali [narrating that he foretold everything about Great Game through prophesy]: Whereas Lord says:

    وَلاَ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ عِندِي خَزَآئِنُ اللّهِ وَلاَ أَعْلَمُ الْغَيْبَ وَلاَ أَقُولُ إِنِّي مَلَكٌ وَلاَ أَقُولُ لِلَّذِينَ تَزْدَرِي أَعْيُنُكُمْ لَن يُؤْتِيَهُمُ اللّهُ خَيْرًا اللّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا فِي أَنفُسِهِمْ إِنِّي إِذًا لَّمِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

    I say not unto you: “I have the treasures of Allah” nor “I have knowledge of the Unseen,” nor say I: “Lo! I am an angel!” Nor say I unto those whom your eyes scorn that Allah will not give them good – Allah knoweth best what is in their hearts – Lo! then indeed I should be of the wrong-doers. [HUD (HUD) Chapter 11 – Verse 31]

    Prophecies were given to Prophets [PBUT] by Allah to establish the Hujjat [Proof] of Prophethood and “Syed Naimatullah Wali”’s Influx [Kashf] are not Hujjat [Proof] for Muslims:

    Due to ignorance people doesnot make a distinction of the true nature of Prophethood, does not make a distinction between a Prophet and an astrologer, and so he compares the Prophethood of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and the astrology of the French physicist Nostradamus who lived in the 16th century CE and composed books of fantasies and illusions. His books are written in ambiguous language about events that will happen up until the end of the world, which he expected would happen in the year 3797. A person like this needs to understand the true nature of Prophethood and why mankind needs to believe in it, and he needs to know that the Unseen can only be known through the Prophets who were chosen by Allaah. He needs to know that Prophethood is a gift from Allaah, may He be glorified, and it cannot be attained by a person’s desires or own efforts. Prophethood is a pure blessing from Allaah, as is indicated in His words

    أُوْلَئِكَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّينَ مِن ذُرِّيَّةِ آدَمَ وَمِمَّنْ حَمَلْنَا مَعَ نُوحٍ

    (interpretation of the meanings):

    “Those were they unto whom Allaah bestowed His Grace from along the Prophets, of the offspring of Adam, and of those whom We carried (in the ship) with Nooh…” [Maryam 19:58]

  2. Aamir Mughal Says:

    Tirmidhi Shareef is translated in Urdu by Late. Maulana Badi-u z- Zaman and he while explaining the Prophecies of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] regarding Last Days [Qayamat] had added a separate margin for False Prophets and Imposters, while narrating and interpreting a Hadith [repeated in many books] that there would 20 and in some narration 30 False Dajjal before the genuine Dajjal i.e. Maseeh Ad Dajjal [Anti-Christ], Mawlana had started telling through reliable reports about such persons from Museelima Kazzab to Abdullah Chakralwi in India. So such Dajjal often appear to deviate Muslims from Correct Manhaj [Methodology] of Monotheism [Tawheed].

    Naimatullah Shah Wali is declaring that “Ilmul Jufr” Numerology as a branch of “Wisdom” whereas this “Ilmul Jufr” is outright “Shirk” Polytheism and even Shia scholar says that it is attributed to Imam Jafar Sadiq [May Allah have mercy on his soul]: Imam Jaffer Sadiq, Numerology, Astrology and Palmistry.


    وَكَذَلِكَ يَجْتَبِيكَ رَبُّكَ وَيُعَلِّمُكَ

    (interpretation of the meanings):

    “Thus will your Lord choose you…” [Yoosuf 12:6]

    قَالَ يَا مُوسَى إِنِّي اصْطَفَيْتُكَ عَلَى النَّاسِ بِرِسَالاَتِي وَبِكَلاَمِي

    (interpretation of the meanings):

    “… I have chosen you above men by My Messages and by My speaking (to you)…” [al-A’raaf 7:144]

    اللّهُ أَعْلَمُ حَيْثُ يَجْعَلُ رِسَالَتَهُ

    (interpretation of the meanings):

    “… Allaah knows best with whom to place His Message…” [al-An’aam 6:124]

    Then he should realize that the way in which Allaah conveys His message to His Prophets and Messengers is by wahy (revelation) . Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    (interpretation of the meanings):

    إِنَّا أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ كَمَا أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَى نُوحٍ وَالنَّبِيِّينَ مِن بَعْدِهِ

    “Verily, We have inspired you (O Muhammad) as We inspired Nooh and the Prophets after him…” [al-Nisa’ 4:163].

    There is nothing wrong with explaining to him the three types or levels of wahy so that he may have a better understanding of this channel of communication between Allaah and His creation, which is so essential for mankind. These three types or levels have been mentioned by Allaah in the Qur’aan (interpretation of the meaning):

    (interpretation of the meanings):

    وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاء حِجَابٍ أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاء إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ

    “It is not given to any human being that Allaah should speak to him unless (it be) by Inspiration, or from behind a veil, or (that) He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His leave. Verily, He is Most High, Most Wise.” [al-Shooraa 42:51]

  3. Aamir Mughal Says:


    These three types or levels may be further explained as follows:

    Inspiring something in the heart of a Prophet in such a way that he has no doubt about it and is certain that it is from Allaah. It was reported in a hadeeth that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The holy spirit (i.e., Jibreel) blew into my heart that no soul dies until its provision (rizq) and appointed time have expired, so fear Allaah and be polite and reasonable when you seek to earn a living from others.” (Reported by Ibn Hibbaan). This type of revelation also includes the visions of the Prophets, which are true, as is proven in the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah Umm al-Mu’mineen (may Allaah be pleased with her) who said: “The first thing that happened to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) of wahy was true vision in his dreams: he did not see something but it would become as true as daybreak.” (Agreed upon – Riaz As Saaleheen).

    Therefore the Prophet and Friend of Allaah, Ibraaheem, hastened to sacrifice his son when he saw that he was commanded to do so in a dream. He took this dream as being a revelation to him, as Allaah tells us (interpretation of the meaning):

    (interpretation of the meanings):

    فَبَشَّرْنَاهُ بِغُلَامٍ حَلِيمٍ

    فَلَمَّا بَلَغَ مَعَهُ السَّعْيَ قَالَ يَا بُنَيَّ إِنِّي أَرَى فِي الْمَنَامِ أَنِّي أَذْبَحُكَ فَانظُرْ مَاذَا تَرَى قَالَ يَا أَبَتِ افْعَلْ مَا تُؤْمَرُ سَتَجِدُنِي إِن

    إِنَّ هَذَا لَهُوَ الْبَلَاء الْمُبِينُ

    وَفَدَيْنَاهُ بِذِبْحٍ عَظِيمٍ

    “So We gave him the glad tidings of a forbearing boy. And, when he (his son) was old enough to walk with him, he said, ‘O my son! I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you (offering you in sacrifice to Allaah), so look what you think!’ He said: ‘O my father! Do that which you are commanded, in sha Allaah (if Allaah will) you will find me of al-saabireen (the patient ones).’ Then, when they had both submitted themselves (to the Will of Allaah), and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead (or on the side of his forehead, for slaughtering) , And We called out to him: ‘O Ibraaheem! You have fulfilled the dream (vision)! Verily, thus do We reward the muhsinoon (good-doers) . Verily, that was a manifest trial, And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice (a ram).” [al-Saaffaat 37:101-107]

    إِذْ رَأَى نَارًا فَقَالَ لِأَهْلِهِ امْكُثُوا إِنِّي آنَسْتُ نَارًا لَّعَلِّي آتِيكُم مِّنْهَا بِقَبَسٍ أَوْ أَجِدُ عَلَى النَّارِ هُدًى

    فَلَمَّا أَتَاهَا نُودِي يَا مُوسَى

    إِنِّي أَنَا رَبُّكَ فَاخْلَعْ نَعْلَيْكَ إِنَّكَ بِالْوَادِ الْمُقَدَّسِ طُوًى

    وَأَنَا اخْتَرْتُكَ فَاسْتَمِعْ لِمَا يُوحَى

    إِنَّنِي أَنَا اللَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنَا فَاعْبُدْنِي وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ لِذِكْرِي

    (interpretation of the meanings):

    Lo! he saw a fire [in the desert]; and so he said to his family: “Wait here! Behold, I perceive a fire [far away]: perhaps I can bring you a brand there from, or find at the fire some guidance.” “And when he came to it (the fire), he was called by name, ‘O Moosa! Verily, I am your Lord! So take off your shoes, you are in the sacred valley, Tuwa. And I have chosen you. So listen to that which is inspired to you. Verily, I am Allaah! None has the right to be worshipped but I, so worship Me, and perform al-salaat (prayer) for My Remembrance.’”[Ta-Ha 20:10-14]

    Revelation to a Prophet via an angel. This is what Allaah refers to in the aayah (interpretation of the meaning):

    أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ

    “… or He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His leave…” [al-Shoora 42:51].

    This messenger is Jibreel, upon whom be peace. The angel came to the Prophet in three forms as is proven in the shar’i texts. These three forms are:

    The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) saw him in the form in which Allaah created him. This happened to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) twice.

    The revelation came with a noise like the sound of a bell, which went away after the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had understood what he had said.

    The angel appeared in the form of a man and spoke to him, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) understood what he said. This was the easiest of the three ways for the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). This what happened the first time Jibreel came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in the Cave of Hira’.

    Imam Bukhari reported: “Ibraaheem ibn al-Mundhir told me that Ma‘n told us that Maalik told me, from ‘Abdullaah ibn Deenaar from Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him), that the Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said: ‘The keys of the Unknown are five, which no-one knows except Allaah: no-one knows what will happen tomorrow except Allaah; no-one knows what is in the wombs except Allaah; no-one knows when it will rain except Allaah; no-one knows in which land he will die; and no-one knows when the Hour will begin except Allaah.” (Saheeh al-Bukhaari)

    He also reported it with the wording: “The keys of the Unseen are five:

    إِنَّ اللَّهَ عِندَهُ عِلْمُ السَّاعَةِ وَيُنَزِّلُ الْغَيْثَ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْأَرْحَامِ وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ مَّاذَا تَكْسِبُ غَدًا وَمَا تَدْرِي نَفْسٌ بِأَيِّ أَرْضٍ تَمُوتُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ

    ‘Verily, Allah! With Him (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour, He send down the rain, and knows that which is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no person knows in what land he will die. Verily Allaah is All-Knower, All-Aware (of things)’ [Luqmaan 31:34].” (Saheeh al-Bukhaari)

    Read and ponder on the document below because Zaid was quoting from it. Qaseeda Naimatullah Shah Wali

    Do read the Verse [Poetic Verse] on page 9 in Persian and this verse is riddled with Shirk [Polytheism] on page 23 it is attributed that Naimatullah Shah Wali is aware of Unkown [Yaani Allah kay Ghayb say Ashna Hain] – This one verse is more than enough to put anybody in trouble of Judgement Day.

    On the very first page right after “Khutba-e-Masnoona” prescribed Sermon [as in Hadith], the so called Shah Wali attributed “Qualities which are only suitable for Allah” with Mohammad [PBUH]. What this “Wali” has done is that he mixed truth with the falsehood.

    On page 3 Shah Wali quoted a Persian Verse of Jalaluddin Rumi wherein “Shah Wali” has again repeated a “Kufr” Disbelief i.e.


    “There is no difference between Allah and His Wali”


    You decide whether such “Trash” is even worthy to be quote.
    Naimatullah Shah Wali on page 45 of his “Qaseeda” predicted about the “Victory” in 1965 War without predicting that brain behind this war was Quadiyanis Brigadier Akhter Hussain Malik and above all War was not won. Nur Khan reminisces ’65 war
    By Our Special Correspondent September 6, 2005
    Pakistan 1965 to 1971.

    Naimatullah Shah Wali on page 49 of his “Qaseeda” is predicting that “Beautiful Grils” and “Femme Fatals” will be captured after capturing Ganges and Jamna. Alas! Naimat will be cursing in his grave [if there ever was any Naimat at all] for missing the “heavenly booties” and by the way Naimat “forgot to mention” Hummood ur Rehman Commission Report and Kargil Retreat.

    On page 51 Naimatullah Shah Wali says that “Imam Mahdi” will apear but he didn’t clear on thing i.e. Would it be Shia Imam Mahdi or Sunni Imam Mahdi??? that Qaseeda was published in 1972 when Faisalabad was Lyalpur.

  6. Aamir Mughal Says:

    On page 4 of Qaseeda Naimatullah Shah Wali , the alleged “Peer Naimat” is quoting Sheikh Al Akbar Ibn ‘Arabi [A Renowned Sufi who believed in Wahdatul Wajood means Allah and His creation are part of Allah – Pantheism]

    Now read:


    Aqeedah Ibn ‘Arabi wa Hayaatuhu by Taqiy al-Deen al-Faasi
    Some confusing words of Ibn ‘Arabi were mentioned to our master Shaykh al-Islam Siraaj al-Deen al-Balqeeni, and he was asked about Ibn ‘Arabi. Our Shaykh al-Balqeeni said: he is a kaafir.[Ibn-e-Hajar Asqalani]

    Among these Sufis are: Ibn ‘Arabi, Ibn Saba’een, Ibn Barrajaan and their followers who follow their path and their religion. They have many books in circulation that are filled with blatant kufr and repugnant bid’ahs, trying to interpret clear texts in very far-fetched and repugnant ways, such that the reader is astounded that anyone could attribute such things to Islam. [Ibn Khaldoon]

    These later Sufis, such as Ibn ‘Arabi and his followers, are misguided and ignorant and beyond the pale of Islam; those among them who have knowledge are even worse. [Al-Subki]

    Undoubtedly the famous book Al-Fusoos contains blatant kufr, as does al-Futoohaat al-Makkiyyah. If it is true that he wrote this and continued to believe in it until he died, then he is a kaafir who is doomed to eternity in Hell, no doubt about it. [Abu Zar’ah ibn al-Haafiz al-‘Iraaqi]


    Not a single word was mine, I have read some part of Fusus al-Hikam The Bezels of Wisdom and Al-Futūḥāt al-Makkiyya by Ibn Arabi and believe me it wasn’t a good thing to read and what is more Funny that several leading Scholars of Indo-Pak declare Ibn Arabi – a great saint particularly Barelvis and Deobandis as well.

  7. Aamir Mughal Says:

    Zahid Hamid Misinterprets the Hadith of Ghazwa-e-Hind!

    Hafiz Ibn Kathir [Author of Tafseer Ibn Kathir] in his another book “Al Bidaya Wan Nihaya” [From the Beginning to End]’s last Volume “Al Nihaya Wal Bidaya” had discussed this Hadith of Ghazwa-e-Hind and in total had given names of more than one such Islami Military Campaigns on Hind [many Deobandis and other Mullahs in India and Pakistan too are now being apologetically say that many campaigns were not for the sake of Islam – what a joke] . The commentary by Ibn-e-Kathir [Mohaddis] on that “Ghazwa-e-Hind Hadith is worth reading and he interpreted that Hadith [with Historical References and Health of the Narrators’ Chain] and clearly written that all those Islamic Armies who launched expedition on Hind [Ibn Kathir was an Scholar of Hadith and History and his School of Thought was of same which is now followed in Saudi Arabia and Wahabi Belt] were Jihad and he included Mohammad Bin Qasim and Mahmood Bin Subugtagin [Mehmood Ghaznavi] and many other Turks Kings. He included China and Central Asia while interpreting these Hadiths. [Reference: Authenticity of Hadiths anc Narrators get Al Taqreeb by Ibn Hajar Asqalani.]

    And before Muhammad Bin Qasim’s Army.

    Abdullah Shah Ghazi is considered to be patron saint of Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. The dargah of Abdullah Shah Ghazi is located in Clifton neighborhood of Saddar Town in Karachi. The real name of Abdullah Shah Ghazi was Abdulla bin Nahban and he was a General in Umayyad Army who died at Debal while trying to conquer Sindh in 711 CE. This army was led by Abdulla bin Nahban and Badil bin Tuhfa, respectively and were both defeated at Debal. According to Dr. Daud Pota the tomb of Abdullah Shah at Clifton in Karachi is of this General, Abdulla bin Nabhan. [Nuzahat ul Khawatir by Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi Former Head of Daul Uloom Deoband and his father Abdul Hai Nadvi]

    Hadith of Ghazawa-e-Hind is narrated by Hazrat Thuban [May Allah be pleased with him] in Sunnan Nisa’i Chapter Ghazwatul Hind] wherein Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] had said


    “Muslims would wage a Jihad in Hind and if it happens in my [PBUH] life then I [PBUH] will spent my [PBUH] life and money and I [PBUH] am martyred then I will be “Chief of Martyr” and If I return alive then I will be like Abu Huraira [May Allah be pleased with him] who is free from Hell.


    All narrators in the chain of narration are truthful [in Arabic Term for Hadith Narrator is “Thiqqa and Saduq”] but one narrator’s background is unknown “Majhool ul Hal” and his name was Abu Bakar Al Zubaidi. [Al Taqreeb by Asqalani, Al Kashif by Imam Zahbi, Sahih Jameh As Sagher by Albani with the reference of Musnad Ahmed, and Imam Muqdasi’s Zia Mukhtara] – Read two comment wherein I have quote Haifz Ibn-e-Kathir and his commentary on this Hadith to clear the confusion.

    Note: Any mistake in literal translation would be unintentional and regretted, if I am wrong somewhere please correct me.

    Another View:

    Basically some Shias murdered the Ummayad’s Governor of Mekran and took shelter in Sindh with Raja Dahar hence the campaign against Sindh launched by Hajjaj Bin Yousuf [Governor Basra] and Father In Law as well as Paternal Uncle of Muhammad Bin Qasim and when Hajjaj died the next Caliph called Muhammad Bin Qasim back and imprisoned him and tortured him to death in Wasit Prison of Iraq [Tareekh Ibn-e-Khladun] – The only ancient source on Sindh History is Chach Nama but there are many versions by different names Fateh nama Sindh, Tarekh-e-Hind wa Sindh, The Chach Nama was written by Kàzí Ismáíl . Kází Ismàíl was appointed the first Kází of Alór by Muhammad Kásim after the conquest of the place.

    Translation is as under: More in The Chachnama-An Ancient History of Sind

    Please keep one thing in Mind that First Islamic Army rather a Trade Delegation had arrived in South India [Malabar] during the Rule of Hazrat Uthman [May Allah be pleased with him] – The first ship bearing Muslim travelers was seen on the Indian coast as early as 630 AD. H.G. Rawlinson, in his book: Ancient and Medieval History of India claims the first Arab Muslims settled on the Indian coast in the last part of the 7th century AD.

    In September 2000, eminent Pakistani historian Mubarak Ali wrote an article, “How Many Qasims, Ghaznavis, and Ghoris Do We Need?” analyzing the valorization of Arabs and Turks who ravished the land that is now Pakistan, in school textbooks. Ali observed that Muhammad bin Qasim, Mahmud of Ghazni and Shihabuddin Ghori emerged as powerful symbols in Muslim politics in the context of the 1930s’ communal atmosphere in India, but their continued aggrandizement had disastrous consequences for Pakistan.

    Back to present days:

    Zaid and other Mullahs [they misinterpret Ghazaw-e-Hind Hadith and this misinterpretation was started by Maulana Akram Awan before the start of Kargil to hound Nawaz Shairf – Akram Awan’s party accept disciples in their Jamat after they take approval from Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and that too after arranging a meeting of would be disciple with Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) just imagine Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is dead and dead don’t come back]. Let me tell you one more thing Akram Awan have two more important member in his Jamat i.e. Major General (R) Zahirul Islam and Brig {R} Mustansir Billah [both were fixed in a false case of Treason by a Former General and DG of MI i.e Ali Quli Khan]. Ali Kuli Khan wanted to become COAS therefore he designed this whole conspiracy case against Abbasi and Billa that they are paving way for Islamic Revolution in the country [go through the newspapers/magainzens (Pakistani) from 1990 to 1994] but Al Quli Khan couldn’t become COAS. These Officers had also approached Mufit Nizamuddin Shamzai [May Allah have mercy on his soul – Chief of Binnori Town Karachi] for his help and also Mawlana Yousuf Ludhiyanvi [May Allah have mercy on his soul] and asked for help for Islamic Revolution and both of these officers got a very befitting replies from both the Scholars In their own words


    “Yeh Aap Logoon Ko Islami Inquilab Ka Khayal Us Waqt Kiyon Aata Hai Jub Wardi Utar Jati Hai” [Why is it so that you came up with the idea to bring in Islamic Revolution after you are no more in Uniform]


    Here is Sheikh Muhammad Akram Awan of Ghazwa-e-Hind and his website:

    Note: In the first URL that there is A SEAL of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] is pasted on the left side of the website [Copy of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)’s Seal is engraved] whereas Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] had stopped us to remake that seal [Bukhari].

    I wonder since when Sufis of Naqshabandi Owaisi Order started talking in the term of “Strategic Depths”?

    Can he prove Sufism through Quran and Hadith because the word itself a Bida’at [Innovation] and appeared 2 centuries after the death of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH].

    شيخ المکرم امير محمد اکرم اعوان
    Shaikh Silsilah Naqshbandiah Owaisiah

    These nincompoops often forget that Siljoq, Tughlaq, Ghaznavis, Lodhis, Behman, Mughals invaded/occupied/ruled parts of India and some of them large parts of India and ruled over India successfully particularly the Mughals ruled India with impunity for more than 200 years. What would be the status of their Armies and their War. They are least bothered to even pay attention to the word in that Hadith “Ghazwa” – Ghazwa are those battles wherein Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] participated. Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] is dead hence such battles cannot be called “Ghazwa”. Version of Zaid Hamid and Akram Awan is not supported If we carefully read the original text of that Hadith what to talk of commentary of Ibn Kathir on the Hadith of Ghazwa-e- Hind which completely refute the bunkum of Zaid Hamid and Akram Awan.

    This comedy is the gift that keeps on giving! Now your sane article about the insanity of religious fanaticism is being appreciated by a religious fanatic who has posted multiple comments about why “true religion” condemns Zaid Hamid’s “false religion”. LOL.

    • Aamir Mughal Says:

      Didn’t you notice that when Zaid Hamid started his drama [time of his entry in media was when Musharraf regime was facing judicial crisis] he himself used the same Religious Fanaticism against Non-Muslims particularly Jews, Hindus and Christian as well, the best thing to counter such element is to debate with them on their own ground.

    • Aamir Mughal Says:

      EXPLAIN THIS RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM UNDER MUSHARRAF MARTIAL LAW: What I was trying to convey was a fact that cannot be denied that under George Bush/Musharraf worst kind of Mullah Calamity took part in election from jails, wage “Jihad” in Afghanistan, now read about first two years of Musharraf’s Martial Law [read the details attentively] that Sufi Mohammad, Masood Ahar, Binnori Town, Lashkar were being supported officially but being defended as well and Musharraf did that right under the nose of everyone [History 1999 to 911] “LIES”of General [R] Pervez Musharraf, Sharifs & Talibans.

  9. farhan umer Says:

    who is the writer of this blog. i think u have become paranoid of zaid hamid speeches u know what his credibility as a person is a questioned but his speeches are really cool and reality. he usually talked about ghazwa-e-hind. i personally was curious to know about this ghazwa and the prophecies of holy prophet S.A.W and here is the reference i found: sunan nesai jild doom kitab-e-jihad hadees no. 1085/1086/1087. these hadees were describe that a ghazwa/jang will be waged by the enemies in the hind and another prophecy of shaikh abu anees states that india pakistan afghanistan some part of iran and russia will become a single state and will be the super power of the time rules by muslims. to hell with zaid hamid i dont agree with him neither listened to him nor liked his ideology but dont mess the true idea of ghazwa hind which is stated in the prophecies of end of time and it is about to happen with a few years may be.donot jumble ghazwa-e-hind and zaid hamid in your mind. ghazwa hind is a reality rather part of it has been fulfilled which is america is already in afghanistan.

    • Aamir Mughal Says:

      Dear Farhan,

      Most of the time even the simple text of Hadith is enough but when there is a Prophecy and Hadith is unclear then it would interpreted and I have explained the Hadith above through Hafiz Ibn Kathir’s Al Bidaya Wal Nihaaya.

  10. It was a very funny experience to read GAME OVER: Zaid Hamid Lost, Zia ul Haq Won, by Anas Abbas. Funny, not in a sense of HA HA funny but funny that serious discussions about Pakistan are taking place in this blog AA@Counter Terrorism, Imperialism, Extremism and Bigotry in such a childish manner. Mr Abbas in his hatred of Mr. Zaid Hamid and – to ridicule his various theories as he himself puts it – was so kind to refer to certain articles and videos to support his arguments.
    • David Ben Gurion theory of Anti Pakistan comments
    • So called Indian weapons in Swat theory
    • So-called American secret map
    • The myth of Ghazwa-e-Hind
    • So called Conspiracy of Jews

    Anyhow, I took the time to read these articles and I am astounded that Mr. Anas Abbas is using the opinions of only anti-Pakistan circles to give credit to his own wretched views.
    One of the reference link given by Mr. Abbas is to Dr. Khalid Zaheer. In Zahher’s video, he say; “ If the Muslims are performing poorly, as they are doing right now, then the Jews and Americans have the right to invade the lands of the Muslims and inflict upon them the misery”.
    Does Mr. Abbas really believe that such horrible views are good for Muslims and Pakistanis?
    I am against the rule of religious Mullahs, but to align with so openly hostile persons is not the solution to Pakistan’s problems.

    As a neutral observer, I have watched the views expressed on AA@Counter Terrorism blog. First I thought that these people were criticizing selfish politicians in Pakistan but it dawned on me slowly that the whole purpose of this blog is to discredit Pakistan army and defense establishment. To criticize military is of course perfectly legitimate but I strongly suspect that there are bigger forces at play behind this anti-Pakistan campaign.

    It will be interesting to ask AA@Counter Terrorism that if Pakistan military and ISI is supporting Zaid Hamid, Ahmed Qureshi and Shireen Mazari, as you claim then one is justified to ask: who is supporting AA@Counter Terrorism and for what purpose. Could we assume that this blog is financially, morally and ideologically supported by CIA, RAW, Mosad and anti-Pakistan movement such as Baluch Liberation Front and Pashtunistan independence movement? It is just a question!

    I also noticed another anomaly in the writings of your bloggers that they are rude, crude and lack discussion skill. They just use derogatory language, which is a sign of desperation and lack of intelligent conversation technique.

    Calling Pakistan army as “in reality an American dog”, Pakistan army’s policies as oppressive, Mohammad Bin Qasim, Mehmood Ghaznavi and Ahmed Shah Abdali as the imperialist invaders. Mr. Abbas and his cohorts continuously claim that
    “The army and establishment have fueled religious extremism and anti Indian sentiment throughout their existence in order to justify their interference in the civilian government structure and their so-called legitimacy to rule Pakistan”.

    They present India and Afghanistan as completely innocent bystanders and it is the nasty Pakistan who is to blame for all the ills in the world. In their enmity to Pakistan, the bloggers on AA@Counter Terrorism forget India has tried to implicate Pakistan is all sorts of nefarious activities. It has tried to get Pakistan blacklisted, declared a terrorist country and a failed state. India tried to convince the world not to help Pakistan.

    So dear friends at AA@Counter Terrorism, Imperialism, Extremism and Bigotry, please try to live up to your own name. Work against terrorism, oppose western interference in the developing countries, fight extremism of all sorts and struggle against bigotry. These noble motives can not be achieved if you only propagate against one institution which is the defender of Pakistan.
    Kind regards
    Bashy Quraishy

    Reading this article i cant help myself to burst into laughter this whole fiasco had turned into a circus …. and the author i surmise is a fiction writer of a low caliber. Is this Political Islam? A problem with Islamic Credibility ? or a showcase of trying to deal Islam with an Intellectual approaches in the context of your own “Islamic political legacies”? I can see how you interpret Islam based in your selective and limited intellectual resources , thereby you monopolise Islam’s “authenticity” making it your exclusive tools of arguments. Its also very interesting for a Muslim like you to deal a woman with such insult calling branding her ” Sexy Islamist” . I can see you standing only and barking on just one side of the wall. Your article was based on second hand information evident in your use of words such as ” according ” which for me holds no bearing at all, i can only see shadow of your own biases and prejudices.Your pointing your fingers against Zaid Hamid and his team as if you yourself is SACRED.Its ironic even horrible to behold that while Pakistan is under terrible crisis all you people are here debating while our country is rapidly deteriorating.

    Cease using Islam at a face value and as your discriminatory measures toward Zaid Hamid ,and also your verbal pomposity not only justify or confirmed your capabilities of twisting the truth but manifested the internal purpose of this deliberate character assasination against Zaid Hamid….

    To the author of this article .. who do you work for? why not come out in the open and have the balls to face Zaid Hamid . this whole issue have come off-hand you blabber worst than a Hollywood talkshow host.

    We all can disagree but dis agree with dignity .Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said ” Disagreements from my community is divine mercy” ask yourself did you argue with dignity? and by the way “This is not a GAME ” “THis is A WAR ” and its not OVER yet..

      Translation: Difference of Opinion is an essential part of Islam Yaani “Ikhtalaf-e-Ummat Bais-e-Rehmat Hai”

      This statement is often quoted as a hadith, but it is not mentioned in the six authentic collections of Hadith and its chain of narrators is also not known. There are various versions of this statement. In some versions it is mentioned, “The difference of opinions among my Companions is a mercy for you.” Or “The difference of opinions of my Companions is a mercy for my Ummah.” Many scholars of Hadith consider all these versions as weak or da’if as far as their narration is concerned. “The saying “Difference of opinion in my Community is a mercy” is the most perverse saying possible, because if difference were mercy, agreement would be anger, and it is impossible for a Muslim to say this, because there can only be either agreement, or difference, and there can only be either mercy, or anger.”

    zaid hamid lost against zia ul haq i believe there wasnt any war fought between them rather both were on the same side. zaid hamid and maulvis both belong to same jihad ideology. u might have heard zaid hamid praising mullah umer and company i mean taliban. the current conflict between mullah and modern mullah(zaid hamid) is a clear conspiracy against both mullahs and zaid hamid. both of them are being exploited by the enemies . what so ever the war of khurasan is now getting worse every day for the enemies and the black flag army cannot rise until the khurasan of reign of RasulAllah is restored and that cannot happen unless a war between india and pakistan is fought. and these are all prophesied by prophet muhammad AS and many of his loyal slaves. i m not discussing this all by my own. zaid hamid is a cult and unreal phenomenon but i need to clear that jang-e-hind is one of the last time event that did not happen in the history but it has to happen yet because black flag will rise right from here right from this part of the world pakistan, india, afghanistan, some part of russia and iran. united khurasan is being is the process of its creation and it has to happen because it will be tell with zaid hamid even if he had not talked about it so much it would have been much better. india pakistan war make the hearts of people warm. there is not need to make people stand for resistance their feet start moving themselves. happy to know prophecy of shaikh(shahib-e-khashf) he said that this united states of khurasan will be the supper power of its time and the all the major world affairs will be handled through this area.

    who is this ANAS ABBAS. .?Such a pigmies are found in abundance in Pakistan who are earning their livelihood by selling their national interest just to establish their hidden agenda whose script has been written across the border. i just fail TO UNDERSTAND why he has forgotten to add his identity marks with comes from ZAIDIS, KAZMIS,PANJATANI AND SO MANY OTHERS…..each on of them is used to earn sacred status by seeking relationship with the most sacred house of Prophet of Islam(s.w.s.) . They live and consume the resources of Pakistan but their loyalty lies with somewhere else. I can assure them if they will hardly be welcomed by any one in that country if they eve try to seek a place in that country. Their khumas which is kind of ZAKAT collected from Poor people of Pakistan is transferred to Iran because Pakistan in their eyes is not A MUSLIM COUNTRY. They are forgetting the fact that problems of Muslim ummah started with the SO CALLED IRANIAN REVOLUTION WHO HAD TRIED TO EXPORT SO CALLED ISLAMIC REVOLUTION IN EVEY MUSLIM COUNTRY. This revolution has given nothing except complete division in the Existence of Uammah. Syria whose Leader represents ALWITE MINORITY CULT AND THEY DO NOT AFFILIATE THEMSELVES WITH ISLAM is recklessly pursuing the killing campaign in his country to pave way for the quick arrival of mythical IMAM WHO IS GHAIB AND SLEEPING IN SOME CAVE OF IRAQ. RIGHT NOW IS THEIR TARGET IS EVERY SUNNI MAJORITY COUNTRY. Behind the scene CIA AND MOSSAD AND OTHER ANIT-MUSLIM AGENCIES ARE FULLY THROWING THEIR WEIGHT TO SUPPORT THEIR DIVISIVE MOVEMENT. WHICH IS NOT AT ALL RELIGIOUS BUT POLITICAL MOVEMENT OF IRAN TO ESTABLISH ITS PRE- ISLAMIC GLORY IN MIDDLE EAST.. This is same glory which was raised to dust by the invasion of Muslim forces under the leadership of Caliph UMER THE GREAT. Caliph Umer is considered by every Racist IRANIAN IS THEIR ENEMY ONE. Persons like ANAS ABBAS ARE product of corrupt and debauched LAKHNAWI CULTURE THAT PLAYED IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE DECLINE OF MOGHUL EMPIRE. THESE PEOPLE ARE NOW BUSY WORKING THROUGH THEIR CAMOUFLAGED IDENTITY THROUGH VARIOUS HIDE OUT . HIDING TRUTH OR TAQIA IS CARDINAL PRINCIPLE OF THEIR FAITH.. THEIR HIDEOUTS ARE SPREAD IN ALL MEDIA AND THEIR PUBLICITY OUTLETS. THEIR HIDDEN MOTIVATIONS WHICH CARRIES A LOT POISON AGAINST PAKISTAN AND ISLAM FROM TIME SEEKS EXPRESSION THROUGH THE FANCIFUL WORDS OF DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS etc. If GENERAL ZIAL UL HAQ was fundamentalist, and Militant then How can you forgive your DEAR IMAM KHOMENI FROM THE HORRIBLE ACTS OF KILLING AND MURDERS. IN Pakistan IRANIAN SPONSORED DEATH IS STILL ACTIVE IN KILLING SUNNI ULEMAS AND ORDINARY PEOPLE IN KARACHI AND ELSEWHERE.Iran is same country which refused to give Oil to Pakistan after our NUCLEAR BLAST IN 1998. The serious crisis of foriegn Exchange and OIL would have gotten worsened if Saudi ARABIA WOULD NOT HAVE EXTENDED ITS HELP. DAWN NEWSPAPER IS THE BIGGEST MOUTH PEACE OF THIS LOBBY. THIS ORDER OF PRO IRANIAN CREATION WILL SOON DEMOLISH …THE CULT THAT PROMOTES ABUSIVE CULTURE AND PERMITS THE USE OF DIRTY LANGUAGES AGAINST THE HONORABLE MEMBERS OF HOUSE OF PROPHET(S.W.S) AND HIS HONORABLE COLLEAGUES WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO JUSTIFY ITS PLACE IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD OF ISLAM.
