Here is a seemingly very clear and much awaited response from Mr. Zaid Hamid. In fact it doesn't solve the riddle at all. He avoides some very basic questions raised by the people coming out and pointing finger to his association with a false prohpet. Regurgitating Sharia and other Arabic terms is not an answer to some basic questions which require only a straight forward, yes and no answer. For example,
1. Kya Yusuf Ali ne Noor-e-Muhammad (SAW) ka "libas" hone ka dawa kiya thha aur apne mannay walon ko sahabi-e-rasool kaha thha, jis mein aap bhi shamil thhay?
Did Yousaf Ali proclaimed himself to be the "libas" of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) and called his followers, including yourself, "Sahabi-e-rasool?
2. Kya Yusuf Ali ne aap ko apna khalifa namzad kiya thha?
Did Yousaf Ali appointed you as his Khalifa?
3. Kya aap ne Yusuf Ali ki saza ke khilaf siyasatdanon aur ulema se rabtay naheen kiye aur us ka case adalat mein naheen lara?
Did you not contacted politicians and Ulema to contest Yousaf Ali's sentence in the court and didn't you fight his case in the court?
4. Aap Yusuf Ali ki taleemat se kab taeb huay?
When did you turned back from the teachings of Yousaf Ali?
5. Kya aap iqrar karte hain ke Yusuf Ali kazzab fasiq thha aur usay Lahore High Court ne saza-e-maut ka jo faisla sunaya thha wuh durust thha?
Do you testify that Yousaf Ali Kazzab was a Fasiq and the Lahore High Court decision in his case was right?
According to our information, the only answer ZZ Hamid has given so far to these five questions is to ask the person to visit him in pindi and he will explain things to him.
The allegations against ZZ Hamid are really serious. The point that this author raised stands insignificant before the real allegations by his critics in Pakistan. ZZ Hamid must consider taking his case to the court rather trying to douze the flames through e-mail exchanges. Facts are hard to hide with rhetoric and fiction.
According to our information, one of ZZ Hamid's old friend, who had been a Nazim of IJT in Karachi contacted him recently on the phone to seek his clarification whether ZZ Hamid is still asscociated with the ideology of Yusuf Kazzab or not. And as expected Zaid said that Yusuf Kazzab was "misunderstood" and he never claimed to be a prophet!

The same message was copied to another blogger from Islamabad. See here, which he found.
Here is a quote from the post:
There are several other questions being asked about Mr. Zaid’s past and future plans. I sent him an email asking few questions for sake of clarity and in order to incorporate his version about the ongoing controversy.
His response was immidiate but surprisingly he skipped all questions and rather sent me a completely irrelevent e mail, which is full of curses and swearings!
His respone is not only irrelevent but more of a curse on those who initially tried to expose him. He has not said a single word on his association with Yousaf Kazab, the Video tapes and court records where he was defending a false prophet. He has also skipped rest of the questions regarding his campaign against Banking system, in times when our economy is already under pressure and Anti-Pakistan forces are trying to collapse our economy.
The controversy will only be resolved if he clearly answers all the questions. Covering these reservation of people about him would result in further doubts.
