Aamir Liaquat lands himself in controversy again


Former minister of religious affairs and TV host Aamir Liaquat once again landed himself in controversy with his out of place ‘humour’.

On September 30, while mocking the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government’s knack for going back on major decisions, Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz said he is going to make a movie on Prime Minister Imran Khan titled “U-Turn Khan”.

“I will invest in a film named U-Turn Khan,” he said.

Liaquat, however, took the joke a bit too seriously.

“Useless person Hamza Shahbaz has decided to create a film with the name U-Turn Khan. You child of Model Town hunter, you won’t make U-Turn Khan, but we shall make a movie U-Burn Pakistan to highlight your family’s actions and how they’ve landed you in punishment,” Aamir tweeted.

A fan account of former Senator Farhatullah Babar tweeted: “Mr Amir, control your tongue lest you have to knock at the same PML-N’s doors one day.”

Another user said: “Sir, your voters should be punished. It is because of them that a joker has been appointed to the Parliament House.”

A user made noted the irony in Liaquat’s actions: “A ruling party that has you as its member doesn’t need an Opposition to cause embarrassment.”
