On 6th September,2011 Hafiz Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi challenged Zaid Hamid to a debate on his Aqa’id and his association with a false prophet Yusuf Kazzab. It’s been nearly one week and Zaid Hamid has not responded to the challenge. He has rather adopted coward acts of threatening Hafiz Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi so that he stops pursuing him.Hafiz Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi asks Zaid Hamid to announce the date, time and venue or else on 19th September,2011 they will announce the date, time and venue for the debate.
Hafiz Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi repeated his challenge and blasted Zaid Hamid’s false allegations in a video statement on 9th September,2011. Instead of responding to the challenge, Zaid Hamid has started using ‘scare tactics’ by making phone calls from private numbers and threatening Hafiz Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi to stop pursuing him.
If Zaid Hamid is a true ‘Aashiq e Rasool (saaw)’, a term he has made his own, then he should face the Ulema and defend his twisted Aqaa’id and his false prophet Yusuf Kazzab.
JUI, Ahl e Sunnat Wal Jam’at and International Khatm e Nabuwwat Movement to support Hafiz Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi in his fight against the Fitna of Zaid Zaman Hamid. This was announced at the International Khatm e Nabuwwat Conference held at Chanab Nagar on 7th September,2011.
Maulana Abdul Hafeez al Makki, Maulana Ahmad Ludhyaanvi, Dr. Ahmad Ali Siraj, Maulana Zahid Mahmood Qasmi, Peer Saifullah Khalid, Qari Zawaar Bahadar were among the 500 Ulema who promised full support to Hafiz Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi.
The South Asian Free Media Association (SAFMA) has condemned as “lies” an accusation made on television by Zaid Hamid that it has links to Indian agency the Research and Analysis Wing.
In its statement, SAFMA said leading media personalities had taken serious exception to the unfounded accusations made by Hamid against a media body of credible journalists of the South Asian region in a talk show hosted by Mehr Bukhari that violated all ethics of professional journalism. If Hamid, the press release said, has committed extreme defamation to incite public sentiment against SAFMA and its thousands of members, Bukhari, the Crossfire team, and the TV management had intentionally tried to malign the media body and its leaders by allowing such a provocative and damaging statement.
The media representatives, the press release said, expressed their serious concern over Crossfire’s slanderous programme anchored by Bukhari while taking exception to the dangerous trend in the electronic media of maligning various personalities and credible organisations. What is quite despicable, the press release further said, is that Hamid, Bukhari and her team, and the owner of the TV channel did not have the decency to invite a SAFMA representative to rebut the allegations aired by the TV channel.
The press release said senior journalists had endorsed SAFMA’s decision to sue the so-called analyst, anchor, her team, and the management of the TV channel. SAFMA office bearers have decided to issue libel notices to the concerned accusers and make them pay for their conduct, the press release added. PRESS RELEASE
