Reactions to Aamir Liaquat By Social Media Due to Joining PTI
Aamir Liaquat Joining PTI :
Aamir Liaquat announces that he is set to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) as a part of entering the political spectrum. According to sources, the anchorperson taken back his decision to join the PTI at the last minute after skipping a key press conference scheduled to announce his inclusion in the party.
A formal announcement had to be made in an important press conference today with PTI chief Imran Khan. However, he skipped the presser.
Earlier, PTI Karachi leader Imran Ismail had told ARY News that a formal announcement would be made in a press conference with PTI chief Imran Khan at his residence.
Aamir Liaquat Hussain, who is also a renowned television celebrity, parted ways with MQM after party founder Altaf Hussain made a hate speech on August 22 speech in which he urged his supporters to raise anti-Pakistan slogans and attack media houses.
It may be noted that the ex-Islamic scholar (pun intended) has served as a Minister for Religious Affairs after winning elections from NA-249 Karachi on MQM’s ticket. He had left the party only to join again. After the MQM controversy related to the anti-Pakistan remarks by Altaf Hussain, Aamir Liqauat left the party again, leaving politics for good.
The news broke last evening when PTI Karachi’s leader Imran Ismail announced Amir’s inclusion in the party.
Two days later, Aamir Liaquat again told ARY News’ anchor Kashif Abbasi that he is receiving death threats through SMS and phone calls after leaving MQM and announced that if he is killed, MQM London and Altaf Hussain will be responsible.
My only wish is to get buried in Pakistan flag,” said Amir Liaquat while responding to a question.
He requested the MQM’s on-panel leader, Khawaja Izharul Hassan, not to call him an “MQM martyr” after his death as his “life and death are only for Pakistan”.
