Hamid Mir (b. July 23, 1966, Sialkot) is a Pakistani journalist and editor. He is known for his Urdu columns and hosts Geo''s Capital Talk.
Education
Mir was born in Sialkot, Punjab. He earned his master''s degree in mass communications from the University of Punjab, Lahore, in 1989.
Hamid Mir has two children.
Career
Mir joined the Daily Jang (Lahore) in 1987 and worked there as sub-editor, reporter, feature writer and edition in charge. In 1994, he broke the submarines purchase scandal in Daily Jang. Some close friends of Asif Zardari (husband of then Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto) were involved in that scandal, along with some Navy officials. Mir lost his job the day his article was published.
In 1996, Mir became the editor of the Daily Pakistan in Islamabad, making him the youngest editor of any national Urdu newspaper in the history of Pakistani journalism. He lost his job again in 1997, when he wrote an article in the Daily Pakistan about the alleged corruption of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Also in 1997, he joined Daily Ausaf (Islamabad) as founding editor.
Mir spent ten days in the Eastern Afghanistan, where he investigated the escape of Osama bin Ladin from Tora Bora mountains in December, 2001.
In 2002, Mir joined GEO TV as the Northern Region editor. Since November, 2002, he has hosted GEO TV''s Capital Talk, a political talk show in which top Pakistani politicians from the government and opposition have appeared. He is currently writing a biography of Osama bin Ladin, as well as a weekly column in Daily Jang and The News International.
Hamid Mir some times also contrast with another famous journalist of Pakistan, Dr Shahid Masood.Though Mir style is different but both counter the participants in there talk shows very acutely.
Comments to Canadian Free Press
Mir claimed --in an interview with independent online news source CanadianFreePress.com-- that Al-Qaeda had acquired three so called ''suitcase nukes'' from Russia, and had successfully smuggled them to Europe. Mir alleges these weapons have been in the possession of Al-Qaeda since long before the 9/11 terror attacks in New York and Washington, D.C., and that they were originally intended to be targeted against London, Paris and Los Angeles.
Mir also claims that Al-Qaeda has 23 sleeper agents inside the United States (minus the 19 who died carrying out the 9/11 attacks) and that these terrorists already have enough radioactive material for six ''dirty bombs''
Relationship with the Taliban
Hamid Mir is sometimes alleged to be a supporter of (or media face of) Taliban in Pakistan because of his views which, it has been alleged, are usually based on denialInstead of acknowledging and condemning Taliban''s terrorist activities in Pakistan and elsewhere, it has been alleged, he attributes all acts of terrorism to Indian, USA and Israel.
Amir Mir, a brother of Hamid Mir, is also a journalist who is known to have thoroughly investigated the terrorist activities of jihadi and sectarian organizations in Pakistan.

Salam sir. I am your silent fan and want to complaint against ministry of Emmigration. In its recent induction they have not only inducted all persons sent from Minister Khurshid Shah but also they have inducted sindhi candidates on Punjab quota stating that no candidate from punjab is eligible. Through your good self I want to raise this in-justice before everyone. One person within office has confirmed this. You can also make it confirmed by your own sources. I would be your thankful if you speek against this infjustice. Thank You Sir

GABRIEL TRUMPETS THE DOOMSDAY OF THIS SCIEENCE GUIDED BACONIAN CULTURE PROGRESS By Allama Muhammad Yousuf Gabriel Fellow humans ! I am destined to greet you with a terrific warning. Tis time now to trumpet the doomsday of this science-guided, Baconian culture of progress. Adopt the "atomic- energy -for -peace", and nuclear annihilation of this world is a certainty. Ban the atomic energy, and the result is the cessation of this economico-industrial set up. Hopes, expectations and optimisms of the scientists and the non-scientists to the contrary are but a dream whose interpretation is a blazing hell of nuclear jehannah. Progress, Atomic Energy and Atomic Bombs are a trinity interlinked. The disappearance of one implies the disappearance of the other two. The Annulment of the Atomic War entails the annulment of Atomic Energy as well as of this Progress. Be not surprised. The flames of Atomic Hell are more surprising. This modern Progress has its own peculiar and particular features and characteristics. It is a process functioning in accordance with particular laws, and it has its particular stages, and particular results. It is organized, systematic, continuous, ever-increasing and infinite. And it is exclusively a matter of the world. And because it is a matter of the world, and because it is ever-increasing, it must gradually occupy man's mind and time expelling at the same time the thought of the other world. And because it is infinite, it must ultimately expel the thought of the other world completely from man's mind and time. And because faith and revealed religion is based on the other world, the faith and revealed religion thus would be expelled from man's mind and time. It is not difficult to observe this transition. That religion only could allow this sort of progress which was willing to sign the warrant of its own exile. Therefore, either religion or this progress. Men may accept willingly or be helpless to accept a life of Progress without religion. But this culture of modern

Here I have a question with all journalists of Jang, Express, Geo TV, AJ TV etc. you all of them provided us the following information with fully energetic way, 1) Kanan and Kaliya cause 2) 5 Americans su siders, which arrested in Islamabad (when Heliri Kalinton came in Pakistan) only for some hours and after special instructions closed that cause. Now no body discussed about above 2 issues. Why you all of them silent at this moment? You all of them only working “ fire on oil and when fire overflow then you all of them silent” is it fair which you are doing with Public of Pakistan? Can you please provide us complete news with conclusion even after few hours/days or months? Because in journal, which media doing in these days “ Breaking News this and that “ after the breaking news Media silent. So, we are requesting you please provide us News with complete evidence/conclusion & with Govt reaction. Please also avoid to sale out your inner for some Dollars. Thanks!

HAMID MIR, is an intellegent TV anchor, but despite of his all intelligence he could not hide his affiliation with PML(N). His invited guests in his show are from AGAINST MUSHARAF PARTIES. The viewers can also easily understand that he never interepts his guests while they are speaking if they belong to PML(N). And it is also easy to judge that he has got an enmity with MUSHARAF. He is biased because of his affiliation with PML(N)..
