Zaid Hamid wants you, yes YOU!

If there is one facebook group that I recommend to all my five and half readers, it is the Zaid Hamid Page. All Pakistani and some Indian readers are familiar with him, the rest should thank their lucky stars that they are spared his bullshit. He is a right wing Che Guevera wannabe who does a crazyass TV show about the conspiracies the world is spinning against Pakistan in a ‘Che’ red beret and army fatigues. Before you raise heckles and accuse me of selling out to right wing jingoist crackpots, let me tell you that it’s a spoof and quite a funny one. There are some photos – some original and some doctored – that can be either funny or cringe worthy, depending upon how you feel about Mr Zaid Hamid. Apart from this page, the people who are administering the facebook page are also running a blog called Hazrat Zaid Hamid Blog which puts the spin in all the controversy theories spun by the legend called Zaid Hamid.

The brief intro about Zaid Hamid says:

I can speak gibberish non-stop at great speed and that too quite convincingly. I specialize in jingoism. I masquerade as a defense analyst to entertain the masses and serve the interests of the ruling elites of both Pakistan and India.

According to the page, Hazrat Zaid Hamid’s personal interests include:


Twisting history, distorting Allama Iqbal’s message, concocting theories that portray Jews as superhumans, fomenting racial hatred, demonizing India, promoting jingoism, defending the interests of military and intelligence agencies, and so on.

So here is some not so subtle plugging for the page. Zaid Hamid calls you to be his fanboy.

  • I also recommend Ahmed Quraishi’s facebook page It’s not a satire, but it may as well be! eg:

    “Ahmed Quraishi Don’t forget. Spread the word. This is a shameless Indian diplomat in Islamabad who organized a musical party the night Pakistanis were mourning their dead in Rawalpindi, Lahore & Multan. These are the names of the shameless Pakistanis who attended. 130 Pakistani families were invited. Only about 40 came”

  • I loathe this man!

    He gave me my life’s worst depression episode. It took me weeks to come out of it by having the ‘Total Quit Television’ therapy.

    I simply can’t stand his rhetorical conspiracies.

    That’s all! :-\

  • Rabia,

    What I love about Hazrat zaid blog are the fake google ads and the email addys on the fake google ads. priceless.

  • arey bhai itna ‘taim’ kis kay pass hay?

    this dude had a name change and in his earlier avatar was a disciple fo some crackpot self confessed prophet

    for such deluded folks humari dua yeh hoti hay …allah inko jaldi jannat may bula lay….;)

  • This made me crack up:

    “Facebook is a Jewish propaganda against Islam and Pakistan” said Hazrat Zaid.

    “But,you have a profile there, you have thousands of friends, post funny youtube videos all the day, you are actively using it”, asked an infidel.

    “What a rude ass! You must be a Hindu.Don’t you see I am using it excessively to overload it so that it breaks down. Death to the Jew, yeah! This is e-Jihad.”, said Hazrat Zaid.

  • That was super funny! I wish I had teachers who had this kind of sense of humour 🙂 I am seriously contemplating that class, just so that I can laugh all day. Or are you too serious when you teach..

    Superb as always

  • Pure gold.

    Satire is funny and all, but don’t you think that people who think similarly are a closed group ? While liberals (actually just sensible people, in this case) might find it funny, the followers of ZH are just going to be further infuriated. Debunking theories with proof is what they’ll need to come around ..

    Ah well, still that is unlikely. So might as well have some fun at ZH’s expense !

  • Hello..Guyz…It is all fake what you r discussing…but yes it is damn FUNNY..LOL

  • People like “Zaid Hamid” are God’s punishment for a corrupt, lazy, inefficient, selfish and illiterate by choice nation. And no doubt, he has a big follower ship and come on prime time tv shows. May ALLAH does not show any mercy to this nation and have lot more “Islamic Renaissance” champions. They “will” bring back the GLORY of Muslims as they are one of those “Muslim Visionaries” who can’t see beyond their nose but still claim to know all about Zionists are planning but have no idea of who is planning to bomb near his house to kill innocents. He should focus more on in-house Muslim “Zionists” than re-mixing and presenting stale old stale Zionist conspiracies against Muslims – who are their own best enemies and don’t need an outside enemy to damage and destroy them. They are self-sufficient for this “unholy” task.

  • come on guys .. we should not be so critical of a zaid hamid if we have not even listened to him talk…

    some of the thing he says are very good. listen to this video which was made as a response to some women who were criticizing zaid hamid and it turns out these women had not even listed to zaid hamid … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sX4zYEZm66o

    what we need to do as Pakistanis is do CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM not destructive criticism.. we should listen to zaid hamids talks and comment on what is it that he is saying wrong and what is it that he is saying right and will benefit us Pakistanis to be united.

  • this dude spreads hatred amongst our own selves. The media gives him hours to talk. No doubt he has good talking skill but use it in a positive manner dude. Our media is so irresponsible that they love to see only because he sells and get them good credentials.

  • Hi Tazeen,
    He fought for Pakistan and for USA in Afghanistan.He knows how the world power functions.He also knows that the Holy texts of Islam support his view of Wahabism.That is to kill any one who is an infidel like Jews,Christians, Hindus and finally any socalled Muslims like Ahmediyas,Shias etc who donot accept his brand of Islam.Otherwise the whole of Pakistani civil society would have revolted at the destruction of bamiyan budhdhas.No Egyptian Muslim could sit and watch destruction of Pyramids.He also knows that Pakistani Armys heroes are Ghawri,Gazhni, etc and the missiles are named after them.No Indian Muslim emperor like Akbar, and even Aurangazeb is glorified in Pakistan because they do NOT belong to pure land of Islam.
    Most importantly he knows almost all civilian political leaders of Pakistan of PML(N),PPP are corrupt while Army leadership is only doing the bidding of USA while pecuniaryly they were not corrupt as per common Pakistani perception.He may even become a civilian President of Pakistan soon.

  • “He is a right wing Che Guevera wannabe “

    No, he is the right wing version of Nadeem.F.Paracha.

  • I recommend all of watch this video .its parody of zaid hamid . 4 man show rocks ! 😛

    can’t stop laughing 😛

  • Haha!
    Great post 😀
    Seriously, for those who don’t take to his shit seriously, this guy’s a great entertainer indeed, ignoring the racial bullshit that is. But then again, Peter Russells does that too 😛

  • He came to our university once in the last semester! And I felt like an oaf for being amongst that handful of people who disliked him, coz apparently the entire university was going ga-ga over him. He is dangerously armed with convincing power and young minds are his victims.

  • Attacking the person is the last resort of those who cannot defend their views.

  • He is sucha drama!! Surely

    Nicely written though

  • Gosh can’t stand this guy on TV.. seriously I wonder how people could still believe his baseless ideas..

  • I don’t care who this guy called Zaid Hamid is,but my question is that are you qualified enough to criticize a person(n that too in such poor manner)who at least have some knowledge which can convince or at least make some knowledgable people to listen to him?

    If you consider his analysis poor or BS than come up with something better or at least enlighten our poor souls with the methodology and criterion on which u give such judgment.Hello, every body is this an unfair call?

    Who has given u the authourity to judge people like that? Are u some great intellectual or scientist or sociologist for that matter?are u anything more than a Akhbaari reporter?

    U have shown similar approach when have talked about some scientific(gosh)things on ur blog.Being a research student of Scientific structure i cannot find ur so called scientific assertion even worth refuting.They are simply nonsense and shows ur complete lack of knowledge of these issues.

    Every body has the right to have his/her own opinion but when u judge someone like that get “frustrated” to see his/her “irrationality” than u have gotta show ur rationality.just coz u have some wit doesnt fortunatly or unfortunatly prove anything.If wit,satire, sarcasm or cracking jokes were the criterion to judge the grounds of complex ideological systems the ‘bhaands and Meerasis” in the Punjab’s villages would be the greatest intellectualls on this planet.

  • To anon:

    Tazeen can be summed up nicely with this quote:

    Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.

    What is said above is her blog and her “liberal posse”.

    X

  • Hi Tazeen,

    Just to tell that I highly appreciate the dicton from “Citizen X” here above. Splendid.

    Georg

  • For the longest time I was under the impression that Zaid Hamid is an entertainer but then came the realization that Mr.Hamid is a “Defense Analyst”!! had he been spreading such venom of hate speech in a civilized world he would be behind the bars for sure but Alas! In Pakistan not only he can preach his distorted ideas but also recruit “foot soldiers” such as Maria B and Ali Azmat.!!

  • That page got deleted.Please change the link in your post to this Tazeen:

  • I LOVE ZAID HAMID

    Ali Abbas

  • My God. I just don’t know what to say about this macabre joke of a man. His fundamentalist views of religion and absolute jargon aimed at liberalism is disgusting, in simple words.

    He is, indeed, the right wing version of Nadeem F. Paracha. Another abominable pseudo-intellectual.

  • NFP is a very much sensible person. If you are not a burger that is. And obviously a JI fan

    Our country has become an **** between the burgers and the mullahz

    NFP’s cruel commentary is just the truth we dont want to read/hear

    ZAID HAMID AND AHMED QURESHI are ISI spoons over internet who are hijacking QUAID and IQBAL’s vision by incorporating their own ISI theories to justify establishment’s act and label anyone opposing them as american israeli indian agent
