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.
