NED University’s Alleged Al-Qaeda Connection

NED University’s Alleged Al-Qaeda Connection

There are over 60,000 living NED graduates in the world today.  With such a large population, it is expected that NED alumni will be found in diverse fields.  It should not be surprising to learn that a few NEDians have even been implicated in ‘jihad’ activities.  Let's start with Muhammad Naeem Noor Khan, a 2001 Computer Engineering graduate from the NED University.  There are conflicting reports about his involvement with Al-Qaeda.  Some describe Muhammad Naeem Noor Khan as the IT Chief of Al-Qaeda, others consider him a CIA operative assigned to penetrate the terrorist network.  This NEDian was arrested in 2004, but was later released for ‘lack of evidence.’
Another NEDian known for jihad is TV analyst, Zaid Hamid, a 1989 Computer Engineering graduate. It is said that Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid was enrolled at the NED University when he went to Afghanistan for jihad against the Soviet Union.
The latest allegation of an NEDian’s involvement in terrorist activities has come from Portland, Oregon where Reaz Qadir Khan, a 1987 Mechanical Engineering graduate was arrested--later released on bail bond--for providing material support to terrorists.

It has been confirmed that Zaid Hamid went to Afghanistan while being at the NED University--the dates in Hamid's autobiography match this account.
