Aamir Liaquat courts controversy by cracking offensive joke on TV
PTI lawmaker Aamir Liaquat Hussain is once again in the spotlight over a new controversy. The politician and TV personality, who hosts a Ramazan transmission on PTV, made a rather inappropriate joke during the transmission that has gone viral on social media.
Aamir Liaquat was telling a joke to the audience that made the women uncomfortable. Here’s how it went.
A man wants to get his watch fixed. He finds a shop where there are multiple watches hanging hence he figures this shop must sell and mend watches. The man approaches the shopkeeper and asks him to repair his watch.
The shopkeeper tells the man that he is in the business of circumcision and not selling watches. The man asks why the shopkeeper has hung so many watches in the shop.
“Tell me, what else do you want me to hang?” says the shopkeeper.
The joke was narrated by Aamir Liaquat on national TV and in the presence of women.
After he made the joke, people called on PEMRA to take action against him.
