Zaid Hamid has over time accussed Ulema of being Takfiri. A Takfiri is a person who calls a Muslim to be a Kafir. In this regard Zaid Hamid used to remind everyone of the Hadees of Prophet Muhammad saaw, that if a muslim calls some fellow muslim to be a Kafir and if the fellow muslim is not a Kafir, the accuser becomes a Kafir himself.
Zaid Hamid has used this word “Takfiri” so often that Takfiri and Fasadi have become a buzz word for him and his fans.
Ulema of AMTKN and Muftian Karam has not called Zaid Hamid to be a Kafir till this date. All that they have said is that Zaid Hamid was a companion of Yusuf Kazab and was his Khalifa and defended him till Yusuf’s death. In fact Zaid Hamid still defends Yusuf Kazab to this date.
However, when it comes to Zaid Hamid himself, he wastes no time and does not think twice before calling all his opposer’s to be Kafir. In this regard Zaid Hamid has issued a Fatwa of Kufr on us in the past. We mentioned this in our article titled Zaid Hamid Calls us Kafir, Forgets the Hadees e Rasool saaw Himself.
But now in his latest status update on his facebook fanpage, Zaid Hamid has called everyone that has been opposing him to be a Kafir. The status message is being produced in verbatim below:
Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid [Official] Persecution and threats at the hands of Zionist system, CIA, RAW, corrupt govt and political parties, terrorists of TTP, BLA and anti Pakistan separatists, sectarian religious extremists and secular liberal fascists!! We are honored to have such galaxy of Kufr united against us. Alhamdolilah, we are hurting them and shall live with dignity and die with honor but never betray Ummat e Rasul and Pakistan!
For the purpose of elaboration, we are presenting the names of people who have been declared Kafir by Zaid Hamid in this status update.
- Terrorists of TTP: TTP was previously declared as a terrorist organization by Zaid Hamid, but now he has declared them to be Kafir as well.
- BLA (Baloch Liberation Army): BLA and other Balochs supporting BLA have been declared Kafir by Zaid Hamid.
- Anti Pakistan Separatists: have been declared as Kafir by Zaid Hamid.
- Sectarian Religious Extremists
- Secular Liberal Fascists
The Sectarian Religious Extremists
These are the Ulemas who according to Zaid Hamid are trying to fuel sectarian clashes by giving Fatwas agains Yusuf Kazab. So these sectarian Ulema have also been declared as Kafir by Zaid Hamid. The list of these Ulema include:
- Dr Israr Ahmed [Ahl e Hadees] – who issued a statement against Zaid Hamid and asked him to call Yusuf to be a Kazab. See Tanzeem e Islami’s press release here.
- Moulana Abdur Rehman Ashrafi [Deoband] – who called Yusuf to be a Kazab and denied any relationship with Yusuf Kazab. See Moulana Ashrafi’s statement here.
- Mufti Ghulam Sarwar Qadri [Barelvi] – who called Yusuf to be a Kazab and Zaid Hamid to be a Shaitan. See Mufti Ghulam Sarwar Qadri’s statement here.
- Mufti Naeem [Deoband] – who called Yusuf to be a Kazab and Zaid Hamid to be an even bigger Kazab. See Mufti Naeem’s statement here.
- Moulana Saeed Ahmed Jalalpuri Shaheed [AMTKN] – Moulana Jalalpuri called Zaid Hamid to be a “Rehbar Ke Roop Mein Rehzan”. Zaid Hamid had previously called Moulana Shaheed to be a 2 Takey Ka Molvi.
- Moulana Ismael Shujabadi [AMTKN] – Moulana Ismael Shujabadi is on record and has blasted Zaid Hamid’s lies on Yusuf Kazab issue. Moulana Ismael is also a 2 Takey Ka Molvi according to Zaid Hamid. See Moulana Shujabadi’s statement here.
- Moulana Akram Tofani [AMTKN] – Moulana Akram nominated Zaid Hamid in the FIR of Moulana Jalalpuri’s murder and called Zaid Hamid to be a Khabees ul Fitrat Insan. Moulana Tofani is also a 2 Takey Ka Molvi according to Zaid Hamid.
The problem with this sectarian group is that it is not sectarian at all and includes Ulema e Karam from all sects including Ahl e Hadees, Deoband, and Barelvi sect – which could collectively be called the Muslim Ummah. So perhaps what Zaid Hamid is trying to say is that the Sect of Muslim Ummah is opposing him and hence have become a Kafir by opposing him.
Majority of Muslims in Pakistan are Sunni’s i.e. they follow Barelvi, Deoband or Ahl e Hadees maslak. By calling Ulema of all maslaks of Sunni’s to be Kafir – Zaid Hamid has actually declared all Sunni’s to be Kafir.
May be Zaid Hamid and his followers are now the only Muslims left in Pakistan.
Secular Liberal Fascists
This is the liberal group in Pakistan, which has been opposing Zaid Hamid for his extreme and violent message and propaganda. The group include the names of people such as:
- Fasi Zaka
- Nadeem F. Paracha
Also see Zaid Hamid quoting the Hadees of Prophet Muhammad saaw in his defense – which states that If a Muslim calls other Muslim a Kafir – and the other Muslim is not a Kafir, the accuser becomes a Kafir.
“If somebody accuses another of Fusuq (by calling him ‘Fasiq’ i.e. a wicked person) or accuses him of Kufr, such an accusation will revert to him (i.e. the accuser) if his companion (the accused) is innocent.”
