ANALYSIS: Why did Zaheer ul Hassan of Velayat TV USA threaten to burn people?


Zaheer ul Hassan: An ill man who seeks to cure others…

On Sunday, August 29, 2010, a contributor to exposed the true violent nature of Maulana Syed Zaheer ul Hassan Naqvi of Velayat TV USA by posting a YouTube video showing the latter, Zaheer, impulsively issuing a threat on the air in Persian to “burn” people. (See below: The video was later removed by YouTube “due to a copyright claim by Velayat TV Network.)


The video clip generated extensive interest in the community and numerous contributers commented on this chronic problem (i.e., mullahs on the loose, undermining Islam and embarrassing the Muslims).

Zaheer ul Hassan of Velayat TV USA wants to "burn" people!

Zaheer ul Hassan of Velayat TV USA is the new Grand Inquisitor in the San Francisco Bay Area: He wants to “burn” people!

Zaheer is not a native speaker of Farsi (Persian) as he is from Punjab, Pakistan, and his mother tongue is Urdu. However, since he learned Persian in Iran, where he studied Shia Islam for six months (God knows what else he learned there), it is not surprising at all that he is trying to expand his sphere of influence (or “guidance” as the mullahs would prefer to say) into the Persian community, especially locally (the Persian community is quite wealthy and more Khums and other donations (Syeds’ candy) won’t hurt). Furthermore, he is also trying to impress his masters in Tehran, particularly Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran (why not please the Big Boss?).

Nevertheless, the main question remains the same: Why did Zaheer ul Hassan behave so foolishly on the air? Why did he allow the Persian caller to provoke him? Why did he fall into the trap just like a mindless rodent or game?

The answer to this riddle has a lot to do with psychology and very little with Islamic religious duty. It is not ambiguous that the Velayat TV USA caller who provoked Zaheer ul Hassan is against Islam and rejects the Prophet and his family, peace be upon him and them all. However, the proper response to the caller’s incitement should have been the true Muhammadan humanistic wise way: Patience, forbearance, forgiveness and begging God to pardon the caller for he does not know what he was doing!

Is not this exactly what Muhammad, PBUH&HF, did with his chronically-abusive non-Muslim neighbor? And what was the reward: The neighbor ultimately accepted Islam and joined the Prophet, PBUH&HF, into Peace!

So why did Zaheer ul Hassan, a mullah with a moped-tire-size jet-black Syed-caste turban issued in Qom, Iran, fail to apply the true Islamic response and instead reverted to a very primitive animalistic instinctive Jahiliyya-type reaction?

Psychological analysis of the mental state of Zaheer ul Hassan reveals very clearly that he was not exactly thinking of the Prophet and his Holy Family, PBUT, when anger consumed him and he lost his mental guards. Zaheer was thinking of only his own self, as he views himself as an alleged descendant of the Prophet, PBUH&HF, and hence took the verbal attack on the Prophet, PBUH&HF, very much personally.

The human rights and counterterrorism activist Sam Bazzi of the Islamic Counterterrorism Institute (ICI) discusses Velayat TV USA with Zia Atabay during an interview aired on NITV United.

What the caller had hit is the very ego of a person who makes his living and justifies his status in the Shia community by portraying himself as a guardian and inheritor of the legacy of the Prophet, PBUH&HF! If the heathen of the Jahiliyya can mess around with the Prophet, PBUH&H, and yet get away with it due to the completeness of the character and wisdom of the Messenger of God, PBUH&HF, that won’t be the case with his eminence Maulana Hujjat ul Islam Syed (Dr.?) Zaheer ul Hassan Naqvi, the Great Founder of Velayat TV USA: The punishment for challenging him and hurting the foundation of his California-size ego is death by burning, no less! That’s arrogance at its height!

Zaheer ul Hassan of Velayat TV USA: The self-assigned Angel of Hell!

Mind you, the Prophet, PBUH&HF, is not known to have burned the enemies of God. It is said that al-Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb, PBUH&HF, burned those who insisted that he is God, but only after giving them the choice to repent. In other words, it was their choosing that they be burned. In fact, the threat of death by fire made them even more convinced that Ali, PBUH&HF, is God because, as they then claimed, “only God tortures with fire!” (The Nusayris (renamed Alawites by the French Mandate) of Syria carry such a distorted belief about the greatest of all Imams. And now the Nusayris are busy butchering as many Sunni-Muslims as they can get away with.)

Zaheer ul Hassan is neither God nor Imam Ali, PBUH&HF. And the provocative caller did not claim that Ali, PBUH&HF, or Zaheer are gods. More importantly, Zaheer, in the United States, (with or without his oversized turban) is merely a naturalized citizen who has no authority whatsoever to prosecute or persecute others. Obviously, Zaheer has a great deficit in self-awareness!

We are very, very sorry, but Zaheer ul Hassan is neither fit to represent Islam nor run a TV station. Zaheer may keep Velayat TV USA as a publicity toy that boosts his starved mullah-ego, but that’s about it. (Of course, Zaheer likes to see Homa and his young “Syed” kids on  satellite TV as well — it’s all in the family, paid for with Khums!)

May God cure the heart of Zaheer ul Hassan and guide his mind.

Meet Maulana Syed Zaheer ul Hassan Naqvi of Velayat TV USA


No one doubts the ill and hostile intentions of Iran’s fanatic Velayat regime towards freedom-demanding Iranians as well as the Free World, particularly the United States. Ever since Ruhollah Khomeini and his gangs of terrorism took over Iran in 1979, his clerical Velayat regime has been suffocating the oppressed Iranians without showing any sense of mercy. Too many Iranians perished while numerous others fled their country in horror to seek shelter and better living in America and other free countries. Unfortunately, the aggressive Velayat regime has been chasing the Iranian expatriate community with tools like Velayat TV USA and trained operatives like Zaheer ul Hassan, a mullah who does not hesitate to use the resources available to him to inflict horror in the hearts of Americans.

So who is Zaheer ul Hassan?

Zaheer ul Hassan is a Pakistani national and a product of the extremist Islamist seminaries of Qom, Iran. He promotes himself and likes to be known as Maulana Syed Zaheer ul Hassan Naqvi — maulana and Syed are Arabic for lord and master respectively while Naqvi means that Zaheer is allegedly a descendant of the infallible Imam Ali ibn Muhammad al-Naqi al-Hadi, PBUT. Obviously, these grandiose titles along with the extra-large black turban serve only to further expand this mullah’s already-over-inflated ego.

Zaheer ul Hassan was able to immigrate to the United States upon his marriage to Homa, a Pakistani-American woman from Connecticut. Once in America, Zaheer became very active at the Islamic Institute of New York – Imam Ali Mosque, which is controlled by the infamous Alavi Foundation.

The undercover investigative journalist Lee Kaplan and the TV host Zia Atabay discussed Alavi Foundation during a program aired by the Los Angeles-based NITV.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Alavi Foundation is entirely controlled by Iran’s Velayat regime. In fact, in 2009 the FBI initiated a seizure process of the Islamic Institute of New York and numerous other Khomeinist centers controlled by Alavi Foundation.

Watch this video about Ali Mir (alias Ishraq Abidi), son of Nabi Raza Mir, an associate of Zaheer ul Hassan. Nabi Mir is the imam at Saba Center of San Jose, CA.

Eventually, Zaheer ul Hassan moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he ultimately initiated two projects in the East Bay: Imam Ali Islamic Center (IAIC) of Castro Valley and Velayat TV USA of Dublin (California). Imam Ali Islamic Center is currently located at this address: 9875 Dublin Canyon Road, Castro Valley, CA 94522.

Like all other Khomeinists based in the West, Zaheer ul Hassan, attempts to practice a devious form of Taqiyya, or dissimulation, to hide his insincere intentions and wicked goals from credulous Americans. Periodically, ul Hassan pretends to be reaching out to non-Muslims, especially unsuspecting Jews. The goal of Zaheer ul Hassan is to develop credibility within the American society and shield his pro-Iranian regime activities behind a fake facade of tolerance and deceitful interfaith activities.

Shabazz expressed support for Hezbollah, an international terrorist organization, during the event. Shabazz also praised the Iranian and Syrian regimes and criticized the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, including Saudi Arabia. Shabazz is known to have caused the burning-death of his grandmother. He was also imprisoned for committing theft. He is now in good company: During a program broadcasted by Velayat TV USA, Zaheer ul Hassan made threats to “burn” some people!

Unfortunately, Zaheer ul Hassan is a committed Khomeinist and a dedicated anti-Semite who considers America to be the Great Satan and subscribes to Khomeini’s “Death to America” slogan.

Zaheer ul Hassan and his likes may be able to fool some Americans all of the time, and all Americans some of the time, but can not fool all Americans all of the time because there are Americans who have enough experience and knowledge to see through terrorists and their supporters and recognize them for who they are.

Freedom must be always guarded, so unless you want to be the miserable slave of narcissistic mullahs (Syeds, Maulanas, etc.) and thugs (Basij, Pasdaran, Hezbollah, etc.), never let your guard down!

(And yes, Zaheer ul Hassan does support Hezbollah, staunchly!)
