Amir Liaquat, famously known as a controversial televangelist has recently announced to host his Ramadan Transmission on Pakistan Television News (PTV). And surprisingly, this is the same venue where he initiated his TV career and was fired very shortly upon disdainful conduct.

In 2018 General Elections, Amir made it to the National Assembly by contesting NA-245 seat on PTI’s ticket; where he later had to face serious wrath of the people for making bogus promises during his electoral campaign. Amir vowed before the residents of these localities, which include major areas of Martin Quarters and Lines Area, to resist the Encroachment Drive ordered by the Supreme Court of Pakistan and advocate for the authorization of the non-leased colonies.
پاکستان کوارٹرز سے منتخب ایم این اے عامر لیاقت ووٹ لینے کے لیے تو غریبوں کا ساتھ دینے کی باتیں کرتے رہے انہیں مالکانہ حقوق دلانے کا یقین بھی دلایا لیکن آج جب آپریشن ہوا تو وہ غائب ہوگئے#SamaaTV #PakistanQuarters #PTI

Locals also complain that Amir after gaining success through their precious votes, never showed-up to address their issues of grave importance…
Such a bad news, @AamirLiaquat on #PTV? Why is #PTVGlobal giving platform to a #bigot and #hatemonger – that too under the guise of religion and piety. We strongly demand @PTVNewsOfficial @WorldPTV @PTVHomeOfficial @reportpemra @pid_gov, stop this state's institution being used. pic.twitter.com/diXyL17Dng

The so-called scholar is also known for fueling hate between religious sects and was recently slammed with a ban by PEMRA for after creating controversy related to religious organization Jamiat Ahle Hadith and globally acclaimed Islamic preacher and scholar Dr. Zakir Naik.

And in the End Got Banned by Pemra on Hurting Religious Sentiments of People ..(Alhamdulil Allah) ??

Next time you see Dr. ZAKIR NAIK please try to learn his way of teaching with atheists/non-muslims and may be one day you will convert one percent of non followers he has already converted @AamirLiaquat

A Public Bully!
But the belligerent Doctor has no stopping when it comes to humiliating common people on-air where he could be seen embarrassing the attendees with humiliating remarks and indecent actions…
Bigot Aamir Liaquat hired by public funded PTV for Shab-e-Barat & Ramadhan transmission. The PTI MNA from Karachi was hired by PTV on recommendation of the PM House. Govt using Pakistani taxpayers' money to support a bigot known for filthy language and hate-preaching & divisions pic.twitter.com/B42JePo9LW

Previously, several footage videos were also leaked exposing Amir for using various profanities off the air on his TV show. Not only that, Amir is accustomed to mocking callers and visitors of his show with utter disrespect, In one of such videos, he could be seen taking the some question lightly, mocking his religious guests, spontaneously singing Indian tunes and referring to Bollywood explicit scenes. But very ironically, Amir considers this as his ‘Lighter Side’.

A Stonehearted Father!?
Recently, Amir stirred yet another controversy regarding his second marriage when he reacted to the grievance of his wife in the very harsh manner by stating that Miss Bushra (Amir’s first wife) poses to be religious, knows nothing about religion which is why she reacted in such a way. He also accused his first wife on forcing his daughter for being vocal against his decision of second marriage.
Another day, another tragedy
Ever since you hurt your family
Sincerest prayers for you to recover
And that too goes for the homewrecker
Hoping Allah guides you to the right way
Whilst your children wipe their tears away.
Your devastated daughter in pain,

Fake Degree… Fake Scholar…
Besides this, Amir is also known for misguiding the public on his educational credentials… In 2015, it was reported that Hussain acquired a fake degree from Ashwood University. According to the Federal Investigation Agency, his profile was noted in Axact’s main server. Hussain confessed that he purchased a fake degree from Ashwood University for $1136. Also, the Federal University of Science & Technology debunked his claims to have received a Master’s Degree in Islamic Studies by saying that he never attended any class or exams.
So as per ARY News Amir Liaquat has confessed that he got the Fake Degree from Axact – In Pakistan the bigger fraud you do the bigger u get

Is TRP Everything!?
Keeping in sight these facts associated with the controversial figure of Amir Liaquat, do you think it is the right decision of Pakistan Television Corporate to engage him with Ramadan Transmission, which has a divine significance in Islam… Or do you believe, harnessing TRP is the only element that matters for the state television in order to keep up with the mainstream!!?
