Talked with Wazhma Mojaddidi on the phone, today. She told me Hamid Hayat was moved to a prison in Bakersfield about four months ago, and then about month and a half ago he was moved to Indiana. With Hamid's family in Lodi, this several-thousand-miles move must have created a major inconvenience for the visitors.
Is there hope for Hamid? Yes, there is. And the hope is called Dennis Riordan, the appellate attorney who is filing appeal. Riordan is a topnotch lawyer who has taken Hamid’s case out of the goodness of his heart. Unfortunately, Riordan is Hamid’s last hope.

is there any way people can help the Hayats financially to afford travel to see Hamid in Indiana? How is Umer Hayat and the rest of the family? Has Mr. Hayat been able to salvage his business or has that ruined by the government as well. And is the Lodi Muslim and greater US Muslim community supportive of the Hayats? There's been a media blackout on Hamid and Umer. Some of us out here do care about how things are proceeding. Thanks for "keeping the light on" so to speak on the Hayats plight.

I was with Hamid in bakersfield, we spended about month and a half together talking about families, life, bollywood, cricket and eating together. To me this guy is totally innocent. You could tell by just looking at him or if you get to talk to him that he ain't no terrorist he is muslim by religion and believes in it. I feel sorry for him I wish best of luck to him for upcoming appeal..

The Muslims in Lodi are not supportive of the Hayat family they don't give a damn which is really sad, cause the Hayat family are good people. Who need our help.

Time to pump up the volume. I have been silent for a long time. The above link takes you to my latest article. The last one was written years ago, before the trials ended.

Peace & love,

I just read hours of this plight of the Hyats, and have come to the conclusion the government prosecution is one big fat joke.
Anyone with two brain cells and time to read can see it.
What a travesty of injustice.
I cannot stand what these government idiots are doing.
BTW - full white blooded USA citizen from my birth and both my parents as well.
The government is now filled with insane loser crooks, it's that simple.
One man, the former FBI agent laughed at the ridiculous prosecution and layed out in detail how when he ran things in the FBI this whole thing would have been thrown out of his office immediately.
This is what we've come to - retards and jerkoffs on wild goose chase tangents attacking innocents because they are too scared to go after real criminals, like the ones they stare at in the mirror, for instance.
