Anyone who heard the news of the sudden demise of Amir Liaquat Hussain could not believe it. How a person full of life and controversy suddenly disappeared from the world stage.
On Thursday, Aamir Liaquat, Pakistan's larger-than-life televangelist. Who placed babies up for adoption on live TV? Wrote speeches for the MQM and survived stolen personal videos, died. He was 49 years old when he died.
Liaquat was born in the city of Karachi in the year 1972. He got married three times throughout his life. In 2018, he married Tuba Anwar for the second time but divorced her soon after to marry Dania Shah in 2022.
Hussain was a high-ranking TV anchor who got his name on the list of the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre's annual edition. The 500 Most Influential Muslims three times. And was also on the list of Pakistan's 100 most popular people.
Raza Haroon, a senior MQM leader, described Aamir Liaquat as "very brilliant" and "quite loud." He was well-versed in journalism and politics. And thanks to his knack for language, he was important in shaping Altaf Hussain's rhetoric.
To put it bluntly, he was profoundly impacted by his elder brother, Dr. Imran Liaquat, who was deeply devout. His mother, Mehmooda, served as the deputy speaker of the Majlis-e-Shoora. And his father, Sheikh Liaquat Hussain, was a founder of the Khidmat-e-Khalq Foundation. Before joining the MQM, he was close to Pir Pagara. He'd been sick for a while, becoming breathless and shaking his hands.
Aamir Liaquat's political career has been tumultuous, to say the least. He rose to the position of the federal minister but irritated Musharraf to the point where the party had to remove him.
From assisting adoptions on his TV show in 2013 to leaked audios of him cussing. While the camera was still filming, the presenter was always a source of controversy. On his show, he has also served participants mangos by hand, which has resulted in a lot of memes. "Aam khaye ga" is a phrase that everyone remembers.
Recently he shared a post regarding his three wives. He was debating all of them including Bushra, Tuba, and Dania. That from three of your only Allah will take an explanation from you. It’s goodbye from my side.
Further, in a recent post, he was addressing Geo news that I have done so much for your Geo News but still, you betray me. He further wrote full poetry regarding all the allegations against him.
He was in conversation with Ihtisham ul Haq recently in April. In which he was discussing with journalist Ihtisham ul Haq that he is not feeling well these days. And he belongs to PTI, his vote is for PTI but bad behavior of PTI causes him to talk against them.
Ramzan Chhepa said that after the death of Amir Liaquat, I am looking into all his affairs. Amir Liaquat had said in his will that he want to get buried with his parents. Although according to two servants that lived in his house along with him. He wasn’t feeling well from last night and felt pain in his heart. When servants brought him to the hospital he was dead already.
