Senior journalist Nusrat Javed in his famous program “Bolta Pakistan” on Aaj Tv on 27 October, 2011 says that Zaid Hamid should be tried for treason. He says this in response to Zaid Hamid’s interview on a private TV channel on 26th October,2011 in which he said that Pakistan’s Constitution and Parliament have no value in his eyes. Nusrat Javed and Mushtaq Minhas discussed that Article 6 of the constitution be applied on Zaid Hamid in this case .
Article 6 states that:-
|[4A][(1)||Any person who abrogates or subverts or suspends or holds in abeyance, or attempts or conspires to abrogate or subvert or suspend or hold in abeyance, the Constitution by use of force or show of force or by any other unconstitutional means shall be guilty of high treason.]|
|(2)||Any person aiding or abetting [4B][or collaborating] the acts mentioned in clause (1) shall likewise be guilty of high treason.|
|[4C][(2A)||An act of high treason mentioned in clause (1) or clause (2) shall not be validated by any court including the Supreme Court and a High Court.]|
|(3)|| [Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament)] shall by law provide for the punishment of persons found guilty of high treason.|
In the same interview Zaid Hamid admitted that he works for the National Security Establishment which is a term usually used for ISI . Nusrat Javed indirectly says that these institutions should not promote such people in the media and TV anchors should not give these fascists a platform.
Maulana Saeed Ahmad Jalalpuri Shaheed was also of the opinion that Zaid Hamid in addition to committing blasphemy, is also guilty of treason.
