They contended that this action of Zaid Hamid is a crime and action should be taken against him. Jang/Geo Group contended that Zaid Hamid and Mubashar, without giving any evidence, are levelling concoted allegations against them with the aim of tainting their image; therefore a case be lodged against them under Articles 500 and 501 of the Pakistan Penal Code.

Zaid Hamid said in an interview (private) he gave to students of Shifa College of Medicine Islamabad that he met Yusuf Kazzab in 1992 in Karachi and after that shifted to Rawalpindi, so he is not aware of what corruptions Yusuf Kazzab might have done after 1992.
As usual, Zaid Hamid lied blatantly instead of acknowledging the fact that he was in constant contact with Yusuf Kazzab and acted as his main Sahabi / Khalifa, and that Yusuf Kazzab used to live with Zaid Hamid when he was in Rawalpindi, for extended periods of time, even conducting his ‘majalis’ (gatherings) at Zaid Hamid’s residence.
The following document shows the address of Zaid Hamid given with Yusuf Kazzab’s name (on page 95 of the court verdict of Yusuf Kazzab’s blasphemy case). This is just one of the evidences which proves that Yusuf Kazzab used to stay at his Sahabi-e-Awwal Zaid Hamid’s residence when he visited Rawalpindi, and was VERY close to him. Zaid Hamid has lied to such an extent and changed his stances so much (to defend Yusuf Kazzab in order to save his own hide) that now it is impossible for him to keep on hiding behind his huge pile of lies and fraud.
His former aide reveals his ex-boss tried to create dissent within army, plotted to kill CJP, PM Nawaz, Gen Kayani, ex-president Zardari, Asma Jahangir, Najam Sethi, Hamid Mir, Khushnood; alleges Zaid fanned sectarianism, attempted to divide army, derail democracy; Zaid rejects charges.
KARACHI: A former close aide of conservative firebrand and self-proclaimed analyst, Zaid Hamid, alleged on Wednesday that his ex-boss attempted to create dissent among senior army officers and wanted to eliminate Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Army chief Gen Parvez Ashfaq Kayani, and others.
Emaad Khalid, who worked with Hamid at his think-tank BrassTacks, made a string of shocking allegations against his former employer, saying that he had prepared “a hit-list,” which included the names of Chief of the Army Staff Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Chaudhry. Also on the list were top journalists, including Hamid Mir, Najam Sethi, Khushnood Ali Khan human and Islamic scholar Maulana Tahir Ashrafi.
A petition has been submitted in the Supreme Court against Zaid Hamid for trying to instigate mutiny in the Pakistan armed forces and plot to assassinate the army chief, he said.
“I accompanied him [Zaid] at many meetings, and for a-year-and-a -half I also met several people to give and receive money on his behalf,” said Khalid while addressing a news conference at the Karachi Press Club.
Khalid said that in the numerous meetings he attended, Zaid Hamid sometimes hatched plans to kill former president Asif Ali Zardari and at others, Nawaz Sharif. “But mostly he planned to kill Gen Kayani. In a meeting with a military intelligence officer, Major Mansoor, he (Zaid) said: ‘Let us find a Mumtaz Qadri for Gen Kayani’.”
He added that Major Mansoor could be a fake name as was the case with many military intelligence officers. “But you can recognise him by his height which is five feet, six inches and a broken pinkie.”
Khalid went on to disclose that Hamid met then Inter-Services Public Relations DG Athar Abbas several times, but when he refused him entry to its headquarters, he began to call him a “joker” and attack his religious affiliations.
“This is how Zaid does things. Whenever anyone insults him, he calls him either a Jewish or a RAW agent or an Ahmadi.”
Similar incidents occurred when Admiral Noman Bashir began taking Zaid with a pinch of salt and the latter started claiming that the chief of naval staff was a member of the Ahmadi sect too. Emaad Khalid also alleged that Zaid Hamid always wanted the army to topple the elected government, but the army chief remained committed to the supremacy of the constitution and democracy.
In fact people like Zaid Hamid only thrive under dictatorships, said Khalid. He further alleged that his former boss had close links with the former military ruler Pervez Musharraf and acted as his adviser.
Zaid tried to instigate the officers of the armed forces against the civilian and military leaders by sending them emails, he added.
Khalid revealed that Zaid had held secret meetings at the UAE, German, Iranian, Turkish and Saudi embassies to sell off the country’s top secrets.
“He plotted several times to derail democracy in the country, but soon realised that the corps commanders were united under the leadership of General Kayani. Zaid can only survive during anarchy, and so he wants to end democracy. Who is he to decide if democracy works for Pakistan or not?” Emmad asked.
Khalid also held Zaid responsible for spreading sectarian violence in the country. “He [Zaid] often said: ‘How hard is it to kill a person in Karachi? You only have to pay Rs70,000 …’.”
Khalid also told reporters that Zaid, a self-proclaimed guardian of faith, was actually a follower of a false prophet Yousuf Kazzab, a man sentenced to death by a lower court for claiming false prophet-hood.
He added that after the air crash that killed Gen Ziaul Haq and the top military leadership, Zaid met former ISI chief General Hamid Gul.
“Yousuf Kazzab accompanied him and Zaid introduced him as his pir.”
Khalid said TV host Mubashir Luqman had strong ties with Zaid mainly because they shared the same ideology and both were ready to “sell out.”
Khalid said he had documents to prove everything he had claimed. “I have also shared my findings with the top military establishment and their investigation has almost completed.”
He said he had attended a meeting which lasted six hours at a house in Chaklala Scheme 3, where senior military officer were present.
“I shared all my findings with them and on their request I worked for six months, collecting all the emails and evidence against him.”
Khalid said he had decided that it was time to speak out because Allah had opened his eyes making him realise that Zaid was not the pious man he thought he was. “In fact, he is harming the national interest for money.”
He said he was ready for him and Hamid to be tried in a court.“And if I am proven wrong, then you can shoot me at a public place and I will have no complaints.” Khalid was accompanied by his wife at the press conference. He said that during his time with Hamid, he and his wife worked as a duo. Zaid Hamid, on social media, described all allegations against him as a pack of lies.

LAHORE: Ulema, Mashaikh of Ahle-Sunnat and many intellectuals have said no doubt Zaid Hamid was following anti-state policies and working to inflict irreparable damage to the country.
Addressing a joint press conference here, they said that after the disclosures Imad Khalid, the close associate of Zaid Hamid, it would be pertinent for the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) to review the entire affair in the light of Shariah.
The Supreme Court is also expected to proceed against Zaid Hamid, they said.They said, disclosures made by such a close person that Zaid Hamid had put on hit list dignitaries like Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Army Chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and some senior journalists was very dangerous and dreadful act. It should be condemned in unequivocal terms.
“Everyone is aware through what dangerous situation the country is passing. No one could justify giving away hundreds of thousands of rupees to such a person by the agencies,” they said.
They said that claim by Zaid Hamid terming certain persons as messenger of God and branding certain persons as agent of the Jews, the Qadianis and the Israelis was a great sin. “Our religion also prohibits us to propagate any news without confirmation,” they elaborated.
Expressing concern, these leaders said that it was sheer violation of the law that such a person whose warrant had been issued by the Sindh High Court was not arrested. They also warned the government against the hidden hand behind Zaid Hamid.
