Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid, better known as Zaid Hamid, is a Pakistani political commentator. His byline in newspaper articles has been Zaid Zaman.

Early life and education

Zaid was born in Okara, Pakistan, in 1964. His father, Lt Col. Zaman Hamid (Retd), served in the Pakistan Army. Zaid spent his early life in Karachi. He received a Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree in Computer Systems Engineering from NED University, Karachi in 1980's. In university, he also practiced Shotokan martial arts.

Political views

Through his TV programmes, Hamid has claimed that a nexus between RAW, Mossad and the CIA is responsible for the destabilization of Pakistan. He also claims that the November 2008 Mumbai attacks, were part of a plan hatched by "Hindu Zionists"", and that it was an attempt by the Indians to stage an attack just like the Americans executed the September 11 attacks.

TV Show

Hamid first gained recognition in Pakistan for a TV Show, Brasstacks, that aired on NewsOne. Hamid critiqued the capitalist system that had led the world to many wars. His series on Economic Terrorism was well received.

Criticism

A number of Pakistani journalists, writers and Islamic scholars have criticized Hamid and have described his views on politics and security as conspiracy theories.

On 20 November 2013, Imaad Khalid a former staff member of Zaid Hamid, revealed at a press conference, that Zaid Hamid was plotting to assassinate Pro-democracy Army Chief, Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani. He showed Media the emails that he claims were sent by Zaid Hamid to different Army Officers asking them for a revolt against their own chief. He said “Zaid Hamid is a quisling and enemy of Islam and Pakistan, who had plotted unsuccessfully to assassinate the pro-democracy army chief Gen Kayani,”. Khalid further claimed that Zaid's hit list also contained the names of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, and others from the media and the judiciary.

Responding to the allegations Zaid Hamid wrote on Twitter, “Pakarmy (Pakistan Army) is an extremely professional org. Anyone contacting thousands of officers for rebellion against COAS cannot survive,” in another tweet he wrote, “Imaad was our team member who suddenly became hostile in April & joined the enemies.”

Dear Zaid Hamid, the best point that you raise is about the compensation from the americans on muslims and pakistani killed. This has to be at the lockerbie rate. We are poor because we dont demand proper payment which is more and increases self-esteem and the AID is always less and is a LOSSY transaction. We should learn from IRAN.
