50 Shades of Aamir Liaquat
From his racist, misogynist comments and shenanigans on live television to calling for the execution of non-believers – Mr. Aamir Liaquat has done it all. Hate him or love him but you cannot deny the man sits at the pantheon of our entertainment industry – head and shoulders above the likes of Fawad Khan, Mahira etc.
The self-proclaimed religious scholar started out his career as a televangelist. His subtle smile and eloquence of speech made him a favorite at Geo. Mr. Liaquat’s breakthrough came with Aalim Online, in which audience would call in live to seek guidance on religious matters. On the show, Liaquat would be accompanied by fellow scholars, whom he would occasionally malign and make fun of.
During that time, news broke out that his bachelor’s degree as well as his Ph.D. were fake and paid for. Aamir Liaquat vehemently opposed this yet showed no evidence to falsify the accusations.
After some time, Aamir Liaquat had a row with GEO and he left them for ARY. But GEO, as a means of retribution released a video of Liaquat in which he could be clearly seen using the most vile, obscene and squalid references to women.
Aamir Liaquat received a lot of backlash from his fans but the man was quick to plead not guilty and released a video to assure his fans that the video was manipulated and derided GEO for a planned smear campaign against him. Time went on and the scars went away.Aamir
InaamGhar and Izzat Ghark
In a shocking U Turn, Liaquat made a comeback to GEO – embracing his once sworn enemy. His comeback was marked by the start of the most popular tv show ever, ‘Aman Ramzan’, in which the flamboyant Liaquat manifested all of his buffoonery in the name of Islam.
He oversaw a number of publicity stunts, such as giving away orphans and abandoned infants to childless couples without any background check and no regard whatsoever for the confidentiality of the children and family. But the common man, surrounded by affliction and weighed down by poverty, saw him as an angel – a savior sent directly by God to put an end to their perpetual suffering.
During that time, he shifted back and forth from GEO to other media groups all the while remaining a controversial figure. Look at this Tweet for instance, in which the big mouthed entertainer makes Sherry Rehman a victim of his sick, sexual fantasies.
Let’s talk a little about Inaam Ghar which is undeniably his most popular show. It helped to skyrocket his reputation and brought GEO crazy money. In the show, Liaquat distributed gifts and prizes to the audience at the expense of their dignity. Any person with a strong conscience would find the content of the show despicable to say the least. Oh, and by the way, I always look at mangoes with a feeling of uneasiness after one of the segments of the show.
Foray into Politics and Second Marriage
Those who follow Aamir Liaquat know very well about his political affiliations. Just as he has the habit of changing loyalties in the entertainment industry, his political stance keeps changing over time. Mr. Liaquat has been seen shamelessly defending the ideology of one party and then speaking ill of the same after joining a new group.
Now, it would have been fine had he been some normal bloke but this individual is a supposedly an expert when it comes to Islamic studies, and just look at the example he is setting! These days, Mr. Liaquat is under hot waters due to his second marriage.
Now, there is no harm in marrying someone you like, but as a religious scholar, shouldn’t he be tying the knot with the consent of her erstwhile wife and children instead of leaving them in tears? Read the harrowing tweet below by her daughter in case you haven’t.
To rub salt in wounds, Aamir and his second wife are appearing on these morning shows with the most contemptible conduct imaginable.
Aamir Liaquat’s appearance on Sanam Baloch’s morning show where he was all lovey dovey with his wife, was not taken well by the masses. Here’s how Pakistani Twitterati reacted:-
چھچھورا پن at its peak…

Speaking of shenanigans and how far Aamir Liaquat Hussain likes to take them (that too, on national television), he put on his perverse sense of humour for the world to see by letting loose a barrage of double-meaning sentences that targeted former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
We can belittle this idiot of a human being as much as we want, but don’t’ you think we as a nation, are equally culpable of shooting a person like him to fame? We are mentally programmed to accept and celebrate people like Aamir and their patriarchal agendas. To Bushra and Dua Aamir, my heartfelt condolences, for we as a nation have failed you.
