Poll drive: Aamir Liaquat admits second marriage


ISLAMABAD: Renowned televangelist Aamir Liaquat Hussain has admitted his second marriage, days after the controversy surfaced on the social media as the election campaign is on throughout the country.

Aamir Liaquat has admitted that he tied the knot with Syeda Tuba Anwar, however, hastened to add that his wife was not dependent on him, so he did not mention it in the nomination papers. The media report suggested that Liaquat’s admittance of being a polygamous personality came during the cut-throat election campaign during which he expressed that Tuba Anwar lived with her father, which became a reason for non-declaration in the nomination papers.

Another endorsement of Liaquat’s second marriage is her record available with the National Database & Registration Authority (NADRA). A receipt issued by the authority confirms the husband’s name of Syeda Tuba Anwar as ‘Aamir Hussain,’ a name mentioned by the television personality in his nomination papers.

According to the details, the Nikah of the TV anchor was performed by Mufti Abdul Qadir in presence of close friends Syed Ali Imam, Hamood Munawar and Abdul Wahab as witnesses. The rumours of Aamir Liaquat being married to the 24-year-old media professional also swirled on mainstream media after veteran actor Sohail Ahmed, also known as Azizi, alluded to the matter.

Azizi is known for disseminating sensational disclosures about the personal life of politicians. He had predicted the second marriage of then railways minister Khawaja Saad Rafique back in 2016 – a claim verified by the former minister himself in his nomination papers. Aamir Liaquat is running for NA-245 seat of the National Assembly.
