Tarnished legacy

The country is in shock over the sudden death of MNA and famous television show host Aamir Liaquat Hussain. He was reportedly seen outside his room early in the morning. He complained about feeling anxious in the morning and then went back inside. After a while, when his house staff entered the room later, they found Hussain’s hands and feet to be cold, the officer said. Although there is no indication of this being a murder, the police still have begun an investigation into the matter. Unfortunately, the family has refused a post-mortem examination.

In the past few months Aamir Liaquat, a prominent televangelist and member of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, had completely lost all respect and power. After his divorce from his third wife, Dania Shah, he was wrapped in a lot of controversies. Dania Shah claimed that he was not the man she married and was involved in heavy drug use. She even claimed that he would also force her to partake in immoral activities. Aamir Liaquat continued to defend himself on social media, and the country saw a back and forth between the two where they both attempted character assassinations. The final nail in the coffin was when his wife Dania leaked videos of her husband abusing drugs while entirely naked. This finally turned public opinion against him.

In the months following the leaked videos, Dr. Aamir Liaqat could be seen on social media with deteriorating mental health. He admitted that he was at fault and would leave the country. Sadly this is not where the story ends. Soon many platforms started voicing Dania’s accusations, some of which were rumors and others complete lies. For example, many people believed she was underage and began labeling Dr. Aamir Liaqat as a pedophile. This may have driven him to extreme lengths.


Salma Bibi, Dania Shah’s mother, revealed that Dr. Aamir Liaquat had contacted them for forgiveness and reconciliation a week before his death. The family is shocked and wishes to attend his funeral, assuming they are allowed to. She also added that she does not think that Dania’s actions and the divorce were the reason for his death.  Dania also offered her condolences via Instagram.
