Raza Rumi loves Hamid Mir loves Hafiz Saeed: A tale of Pakistan’s pseudo-liberals – by Ankur Desai

Related post: Hamid Mir and Raza Rumi’s attack on Laibaah

In the last few months, certain apparently liberal (in fact pseudo-liberal) journalists in Pakistan have been trying to promote Hamid Mir and other dubious persons as anti-ISI, champion of free media and human rights.

For example, Omar Waraich published a column in The Time in which he tried to present three patent spokespersons of Pakistan army, namely Hamid Mir, Ejaz Haider and Najam Sethi, as anti-ISI.

However, while Pakistani pseudo-liberals have been unable to repair the lost credibility of Hamid Mir, Sethi, Haider etc, in this process they have dented their own credentials.

In the latest expression of the pseudo-liberal right-wing alliance, Raza Rumi (the liberal posing editor of Pak Tea House blog and The Friday Times journal) was seen today (8 April 2012) promoting Hamid Mir in the following words:

Met the brave @HamidMirGEO today. Great to see him continue his great father’s legacy in journalism! #Pakistan

As a keen reader of Pakistani journalism and politics, I immediately noticed that nothing could be a bigger insult to the memory of late Waris Mir to compare his great legacy with the yellow journalism of ideologically and financially bankrupt Hamid Mir.

Waris Mir gave his life boldly writing and resisting against General Zia-ul-Haq’s military regime and its Islamo-fascist Jihadi poodles (Jamaat-e-Islami, to be specific). In contrast, Hamid Mir became a willing partner and tool of the Deep State (army) and actively promoted and supported Pakistan army’s Jihadi policies in Afghanistan and Kashmir. Hamid Mir developed links with the Al Qaeda and Taliban and was trusted by their senior leaders as an important spokesman in Pakistan’s print and electronic media.

Mir was also found to be involved in hate speech against Ahmadiyya Muslims in one of the audiotapes leaked two years ago. A few days after the tape was leaked, at least 100 Ahmadiyya Muslims were brutally butchered in Lahore by Hamid Mir’s friends, the Punjabi Taliban (aka Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan SSP / ASWJ)

Further, his role in Khalid Khwaja’s murder by the Taliban is also pending investigation despite the police report and numerous appeals by late Khwaja’s son. http://ahmadiyyatimes.blogspot.co.uk/2010/05/pakistan-audio-tape-implicates-hamid.html

Hamid Mir has consistently misrepresented the ISI-sponsored Shia genocide as Hazara specific in Quetta and sectarian violence in other parts of Pakistan.

Most recently, Hamid Mir has appeared as an advocate of Hafiz Saeed’s human rights and liberty in response to the US announcement of bounty.

The US government has announced a BIG BOUNTY of $10 Millions on the head of Hafiz Saeed, the founder of notorious terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba aks Jamaat-Ud-Dawa in Pakistan which is also an ally of another terrorist group Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (aka Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat) also has close linkages with another notorious and much maligned intelligence agency of Pakistan, the ISI. Not only the ISI has been denying the charges on Hafiz Saeed but also many of ISI’s assets within Pakistan’s Urdu media (generally right-wing) and English media (generally pseudo-liberals) have extended support to Hafiz Saeed.

In this task, Hamid Mir is aided by none other than another fake anti-ISI hero, Ejaz Haider, and other affiliates of the Jinnah Institute. (Raza Rumi recently contributed to the Jinnah Institute’s dishonest report on Shia genocide a few weeks ago.)

In his interview with an Indian TV channel yesterday, Hamid Mir presented an apologist and dishonest view on Hafiz Saeed. He completely disregarded the fact that Hafiz Saeed is the founder and main leader of the ISI-sponsored LeT-JuD Jihadi network which is responsible for terrorist activities in Indian-administered Kashmir and other parts of India. He also lied that Hafiz Saeed was very unpopular in Pakistan and the bounty money had made him popular. How would he explain the presence of thousands of ISI-backed mercenaries who used to attend Hafiz Saeed (JuD) and Ahemd Ludhianvi (ASWJ-SSP) led Difa-e-Pakistan rallies in Lahore, Karachi and other cities in the last few months?

What’s common in Hamid Mir, Raza Rumi and Hafiz Saeed?

All three of them misrepresent ISI-sponsored Shia genocide in Pakistan as ‘sectarian violence between Sunnis and Shias’; http://criticalppp.com/archives/58905 and http://criticalppp.com/archives/74987

All three of them misrepresent the suffering of Ahmadiyya Muslims by the Pakistani state; http://criticalppp.com/archives/74987 http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=2010%5C05%5C16%5Cstory_16-5-2010_pg1_6

All three of them remain financially and/or politically aligned with Pakistan’s ruling classes, particularly the military establishment;

All three of them use general stereotypes to label Pakistan Shias and their leaders as Iranian agents; http://criticalppp.com/archives/75388

All three of them attack and abuse critical voices. Hamid Mir attacked LUBP blog in his Capital Talk talk-show, Raza Rumi attacked both Pakistan Blogzine and LUBP terming their editors as sub-humans, internet viruses, fake activists, Iranian proxies and agency plants.

All three of them obfuscate Pakistan’s military state’s role in the LeT-JuD massacres in Mumbai and other parts of India.


Update 14 April 2012: Hamid Mir wants to wipe out Shia identity of Hazaras of Quettas just as ASWJ-LeJ terrorists want to wipe out Shias.

  3. Rumi Sahib may disagree with the post but he has no right to abuse anyone including those not related to this post.

    By the way, Rumi is not as bad as Hamid Mir.

  4. Thank you, Pakistan Blogzine, for publishing my post.

    I am kind of offended that Mr. Rumi has refused to recognize me as an author of this post. Next time, I should submit to Pak Tea House perhaps but does anyone read that blog?

  5. Sadanand Dhume ‏ @dhume01
    Ejaz Haider really, truly has no desire to defend a mass murderer like Hafiz Saeed in print. [But that won’t stop him.] http://tribune.com.pk/story/359643/emperor-nero-and-the-us/

    And who is Ejaz Haider’s best friend, of course: RR

    @Razarumi the problem with “Pakviruszine” is that it wants “attention” and for that they resort to cheap tactics. There agenda is shady!

  7. اقبال کے نام نہاد محافظ…ایازا میر

    اس بات پر غور کیجیے کہ کچھ صحافی اور ٹی وی اینکر حضرات مثلاً رضا رومی، جو گزشتہ دنوں قاتلانہ حملے میں بال بال بچے، جیسے ہیں اور وہ انتہا پسندوں کے نشانے پر ہیں جبکہ اسی قبیلے کے دوسرے سرخیل طالبان کے مشیروں کے فرائض سرانجام دے رہے ہیں ۔ طالبان کا ایک ترجمان ان مشیروں میںسے ایک کوفون کرکے اپنی قید میں موجود ایک شخص ، خالد خواجہ، کے بارے میں رائے دریافت کرتا ہے اور اس قیدی کو سی آئی اے کا ایجنٹ قرار دے دیا جاتا ہے۔ اس کے بعد خواجہ کو گولی مار کر ہلاک کرنے کے بعد لاش کو سڑک کے کنارے پھینک دیا جاتا ہے۔ یہ سب گفتگو یوٹیوب پر ریکارڈ ہے اور آپ کو یقینا اسلام کے اس ٹھیکدار کی آواز پہنچاننے میںکوئی دقت نہیںہوگی۔


    Outrage of the patriotic brigade

    Ayaz Amir
    Friday, April 04, 2014

    Consider this: there are journalists and TV anchors like Raza Rumi who come to within an inch of losing their lives at the hands of extremist hit-men and then there are fixtures of the television horizon who act like advisers to the Taliban. A Taliban spokesman calls them to ask their opinion about someone in their custody. And the fixtures scarcely pause before denouncing the captive as a CIA agent. And the man is shot, his body flung on the wayside. All this is recorded and is there for anyone to peruse on YouTube, the voice unmistakable. And such people are also unabashed thekedars of Islam.
