It would be best if lay the ground work from where my opinion originates from. Please follow this thread at Insaf.pk ( the political website of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Movement for Justice) lead by Mr. Imran Khan, ex-cricketer turned politician). Over the last few years the website has provided a platform for those attempting to understand and share ideas towards creating a new political dynamic in Pakistan, focused on the Rule of Law and Swift dispensation of Justice.
Regalrdless, the issue here is Mr. Zaid Hamid, therefore I would like to mention here that the forum discussion below is focused on a talk show featuring Zaid Hamid along with Dr. Parvez Hoodhboy (who holds the Abdus Salam Chair at Quiad-e-Azam University in Islamabad and a doctorate in Theoretical Physics from MIT) .
IMO, they both present polar opposite ideals but I would leave that for you to judge.
In the ensuing discussion I present my viewpoints under the alias : Lincoln84
Hope it helps in creating an understanding of where I was coming from.
P.S. Most of discussion on the talk show is held in Urdu.
