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.
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.
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.

R/Sir, I wish to bring your attention towards a question which rises in the masses of north waziristan . The question is Are we not Pakistanis ? This is due to the civillian casualties by the ongoing drone attacks the recent drone attack on Tappi village has killed one woman and her two little sons.It was the house of retired school principal. Sir this is a seious issue, it shows that intentionally government of pakistan is compelling us to start thinking like the BLA in baluchistan, because the government and the civil society do not consider us human beings or pakistanees.I t is the request of the youth of northwaziristan to please discuss this issue in your program CApital Talk. Sir you are our only hope,becuase you are the one who visited northwaziristan in the hard days. we also know that your capital talk is popoular though the world.We are loyal to pakistan. it is our homeland. we have a great history of sacrifice for pakistan during the war times in 1948 and in 1965. Hope yopu will not turn down our request. Thank you and ALLAH Bless you

Punjab police is responsible for his disappearance and the police refuses to help us or give us any information about my brother. The Pakistani media refuses to help us.

We really request you to help us in this matter. My brother is a grown married man with six children, who need there father. So I request you take action against this and help me!!!!!!

DR. Shahzad Ahmad ( Mirpur Azad Kashmir,Pakistan) Monday, July 30, 2012 12:37:12 PM (MDT - USA)
Dear Hamid Mir Sb Assalam-o-Alaikum. After seeing your programme on 30th July I am anxious when will have water kit in my car. I congratulate you on presenting such a productive activity. Congratulations to the efforts of Syed Khursheed Shah for bringing these talented Pakistanis in Islamabad. And Many congratulations to Engineer Agha and his companions. They really deserve great admiration and Government supervision in ‘’real senesce’’ . Such great minds are pride of Pakistan. Now need is repeated reminders to Government from you and your colleagues for providing security to these people like Dr. Qadeer Khan, so that this technology could not be high-jacked or copied by others. Real efforts should be made for more and more improvement in this technology through the platform of science and technology ministry through supervision of other great scientists in the country. So that we can produce these kits not only for our country but also export these for earning foreign revenue. Large scale efforts should be made for using this cheep technology in other industries and even for production of electricity. Mir sb. Please let this issue be highlighted in media repeatedly. Thanks and regards. Dr. Shahzad Ahmad Mirpur Azad Kashmir
