Dr Aamir Liaquat’s show continues…on Twitter

After being hounded by a viral video controversy, it seems our esteemed Dr Aamir Liaquat has decided to take the fight against his good name online, via Twitter.

Needless to say, for some of us, this has been an eye-opening, and somewhat refreshing experience compared to the Doctor’s rather lengthy TV series. Welcome to a show far removed from TV, as the brevity of Twitter updates forced the good Doctor to skip his usual elegant mannerisms.

No more fluff, Dr Aamir Liaquat played hardball online, proving that he really knows how to segment and cater to different audiences (and varying levels of accountability).

Late night he ran a one hour ‘Twitter special’ that contained such choice updates as:

AamirLiaquat I continue to hate Qadiyanis no matter how much the supporters will burn in fire of jealousy

AamirLiaquat Also it is the demand of our faith to condemn the false prophet like Mirza Ghulam Qadyani, the greatest cursed person of the entire universe

Feeling his program was perhaps veering too far, our esteemed Doctor then peddled back a step:

AamirLiaquat I am not talking about the killings of Qadiyanis, but I am against of their sham ideologies

AamirLiaquat I completely and throughly believe that killing of any human being is the killing of the whole humanity

Having established his good nature and intentions, Dr Liaquat carried on:

AamirLiaquat O Qadiyanis! Do not come up with the false allegations, the whole world knows that you have hatred and grudges against me

At this point the good Doctor took a call from journalist and documentary filmmaker Beena Sarwar who remarked:

beenasarwar @AamirLiaquat I’m not arguing with your belief. Only asking whether this belief can only be propagated by hating others.

The good Doctor replied, once again, with surprising brevity:

AamirLiaquat @beenasarwar Beena please put yourself out from this quarrel, it is a serious matter of belief

AamirLiaquat @beenasarwar I request you again please understand the Khatm-e-Naboowat, it is not an issue of hate and love

Not your typical call-in, but hey its Twitter – time and attention spans are short! On with the show. Columnist and activist Marvi Sirmed weighed in:

marvisirmed @Spugmay Chill yourself and keep your lectures to yourself. We’ll deal with this murderer ourselves @AamirLiaquat @sanakazmi

To which our (shocked) good Doctor replies:

AamirLiaquat Now they are threatend me, they have nothing to prove

AamirLiaquat She called me murderer…Sirf lafzoun ey hi mar gaye..hai allah

With this, and a few other choice retweets that cannot be pasted here, the late-night show came to an end with a final shout out by Dr Liaquat:

AamirLiaquat Ok Bye Bye, O Qadiyanis! keep on burning

Twitter channel off.

Time to go to sleep in our land of the pure, Pakistan…

The Morning Show

Dr Liaquat, true to morning show form begins by taking a call from Beena Sarwar once again. This time we see less aggression, smiles, platitudes and ye ol’ morning show calm:

beenasarwar @AamirLiaquat is an old colleague from Geo. I’m sure he doesn’t mean harm, will crub hate speech.

AamirLiaquat @beenasarwar You are right beena and you know me very well

The chit chat takes a pleasant turn, with Ms Sarwar finding room for sneaking in a request:

@beenasarwar @AamirLiaquat Look fwd to you clearing misconception, & clearly state violence, murder of anyone for their faith incl Ahmedis is WRONG. Thks

The good Doctor takes up the good will and embellishes:

AamirLiaquat @beenasarwar Un murders key peechey bhi aik conspiracy thi, kash kabhi koi mujh sey to poochta ya woh programme hi unbiast ho kar dekhta

AamirLiaquat @beenasarwar Yeah Beena these are my views too…pata nahin Rasool sey meri muhabbat ko provoking of violence kiyoun samajh lia jaatA hai

So there we have it folks! The wonders of the media revealed! Something for everybody! Got a little masala in for the late night folks, and got your platitudes in for the morning segment too!

In media/marketing speak I believe this is called: win-win.

    So the rampant views of “Ahmedis are Wajib-ul-Qatal” is their own conspiracy?

    I recall on of his article on Jang few months back, he mentioned Facebook as a Zionist Organization against muslims, as FB uses small f in their logo, which represent cross symbol.

    That article, his videos, and these tweets clearly shows what is he as a person, or his level of wisdom.

    Any ways, I welcome him to the world of social media. ;) He already has had a knock out situation, and soon to get for ever.Recommend

    For false Prophet thing, please read what happened to Salima Kazab during time of Hazrat Abu Bakar (R.A). No doubt Aamir Liaquat did incite violence against Ahmedia and it was after his program that two Ahmedis died. Yes, they are non-Muslims, but still they have their rights in Islam. Recommend

  • Adnan Khan

    Dr saab is trying to channelize the common aggression against him by flying off the tangent and blaming a minority for HIS own wrong deeds…. How does it even make a sense? There’s already enough persecution against Qadiyanis and Dr Saab has just fueled the fire. I think he should reflect upon his sordid spell of abuses on tv and try to clear it before he casts some irrelevant aspersions on any community. ‘Physician heal thyself’Recommend

  • Anwar

    Its really sad time in Islamic history where majority of Muslims are united on only one point agenda i.e. Kill Kill Kill. We aren’t united in promoting peace, tolerance and brother hood. We aren’t even united on our day to-day matters like in Mosques, prayers, moon sightings etc and the list goes on and on. Only those nations succeed who learn peaceful co-existence, tolerance and justice.

    Dr Amir is unfortunately is biggest hypocrite of our times. Whatever he preaches doesn’t coincide with his actions.Recommend

  • Nazish

    Well, how can Mr. Aamir turn this towards Ahmedis / Qadianis, This was clearly his own doing and how can he call these clear thing edited, i have read his article (which he wrote in his defence) and that was simply a word play nothing else. If you love Holy Prophet PBUH that much then why are you not in real life how you look like on screen ??? Recommend

  • Nazish

    If his stance was like ” Well that was me of old times, when i was not very knowledgable and a practicle muslim, and i admit my mistake ” that could be a bit logical, instead of blaming it on a certain community and calling these a campaign against him (Like he is a great great person). That atitude of his doesnt suits the personality he puts on display in front of millions of viewers. Recommend

  • Tony Khan

    Ahmadis believe that the Holy Prophet (saw) is the last law bearing prophet and his shariat is for all times and cannot be changed. They further believe that that Jesus (as) died nearly two thousand years ago and Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) is the promised messiah foretold by the Holy Prophet (saw). Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is a slave of the Holy Prophet (saw) and has not added or subtracted from the everlasting shariat of the Holy Prophet (saw).
    The natural death of Jesus (as) two thousand years ago is also endorsed by Ibne Arabi and modern scholars like Javed Ghamadi and Khalid Zaheer.Recommend

    Yup, he always speaks truth when he says (Which can not be written here but can be heared from his mouth in the video underdiscussion) if you think he is a truthfull person then why he is so afraid of admitting that these were his doings instead of placing the blame on a certain group … I remember Hassan Nisar referred to this kinda mentality once in these words ” (People like that think that) Americana Martyred Hazrat Umer R.A. the second caliph”
    Same goes for Mr. Aamir who think every thing is done by Qadianis …Recommend

    He is using Qadianis/Ahmadis because he knows most uneducated people will start following him because they do not have the knowledge of islam or ahmadis.

    @ Moderate
    Before calling someone non muslim please learn the history of islam. Also please ask the people what happend in 1974. An assembly that was filled with liars/rapist and people who used to drink came togather to solve a religious issue? Seriously? read the newspaper at the time of Zia and it will tell you what kind of assembly it was, then read the news paper after Zia and you will find out what kind of person he was. So a political move from Bhutto declaring a sect non muslim is doesn’t mean they are not muslim. As soon as you cross the borders of Pakistan they are again muslims, all over the world, even in Pakistani controlled Kashmire. So please don’t become God and start calling people non muslims because even Hazoor pbuh never used to call anyone non muslim who recited the Kalima.Recommend

    Twitter/Facebook and other social media has made blog writing so easy for amateur writers.. you just follow someone and fill 90% of your blog with his status and quotations and thats it.
    What Amir Liaqat has said about Qahiyanis, same tone & language is kept being used by many liberals including Marvi Sarmad against anti-liberals…You should check that out as well Mr AuthorRecommend

  • alithered

    Well the Qadiyani’s are no doubt Non-Muslims and yes, they do conspire and scheme.. Having said that, killing them is wrong, and being a person who has access to the minds of millions through his TV shows, Aamir Liaqat should be more responsible with his work..

    He should have been held accountable for incitement when he did that show… and he shouldn’t be blaming some specific group for the recent leaked video.. Aamir Liaquat, BE A MAN!!!Recommend

    Hang on a second, before you compare liberals vs amir liaqat/anti-liberal gang. Anti-liberals are killing people and liberals are not and it’s OK to condemns murderer anti-liberals in the strongest term in any civilised society but not those who are peaceful and cause no physical harm. See the difference yet? Try better next time to justify bigotry.Recommend
