Aamir Liaquat’s ex-wife lashes out at his mother-in-law

Published

on

Bushra Iqbal, ex-wife of late National Assembly member and televangelist Aamir Liaquat Hussain, on Sunday reacted to allegations levelled against her by Salma Bibi, mother of the lawmaker’s widow Dania Shah.

Responding to Salma Bibi’s allegations, Bushra said: “Dania and her mother had already tarnished Aamir’s honour. They humiliated him and now they are after me.”

The popular TV host’s former wife said she is listening to everything including what Dania’s mother has been thinking and saying.

“Firstly, those who did not care about Aamir’s honour don’t know its meaning. Why would they think about our dignity? She obviously has to save her daughter, so she’ll say something,” Bushra said.

Liaquat’s ex-wife went on to say that the stories Salma has been concocting will work outside the court, not before the court.

Comparing how much her ex-husband’s mother-in-law speaks in front of journalists to how she remains silent in the courtroom, Bushra said that it is because she has no evidence to produce for her claims.

While speaking with newsmen outside a Karachi court a few days ago, Liaquat’s mother-in-law said that her daughter is a widow and has the right. She reiterated her stance on the parliamentarian’s death deeming it a murder and demanded an autopsy. “Why is Bushra stopping? We are asking the reason behind Aamir’s death and these people are filing a case against us,” Salma said.

Reiterating her stance on the well-known TV anchor’s untimely death, Salma Bibi said: “Aamir’s son saw marks of injuries on while bathing his body, which is why he ran away because he knew his father was murdered and his mother was hiding this killing.”

Bushra, when speaking with journalists, also said that the mother-daughter duo has been claiming to possess videos and audio, but hasn’t shared anything yet.

“Prove these allegations in the court and avoid levelling false allegations,” she said, referring to Dania’s mother.

She added that the lawmaker’s widow and her mother’s story “begins and ends over their greed for money”.

“Our issue is not money. Whatever belongs to the parents, belongs to their children. My children are fighting for their father’s honour and dignity,” Bushra added.

Last week, Bushra insisted that girls like Dania should be punished for what she did with her ex-husband.

“Aamir was not at fault. He suffered immense injustice,” Bushra said, in the wake of the lawmaker’s widow’s arrest by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on December 15.

Earlier, a local court in Karachi rejected the FIA’s plea seeking Dania’s physical remand and sent her to jail on a 14-day judicial remand in a case relating to uploading controversial videos of her husband on social media.

The agency’s officials arraigned the late televangelist’s widow before the judicial magistrate (East) and pleaded with the court to grant them physical remand of the suspect in the case.

Terrorist who martyred two ISI officials in Khanewal gunned down in IBO

  • Terrorist was at large after killing security officials.
  • Security forces conduct joint operation to nab militant.
  • Niazi succumbs to injuries after being injured in fire exchange.

A terrorist who martyred Naveed Sadiq and Nasir Hussain — the director and inspector of the Inter-Services Intelligence’s (ISI) Counter-Terrorism Wing — was gunned down by law enforcement agencies on Monday in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s (KP) Kurram Agency.

The slain terrorist, identified as Umar Niazi, was at large after he martyred the two ISI officials on January 3.

The security agencies arrested the terrorist with serious injuries following an exchange of fire. Niazi succumbed to his injuries after a while.

Intelligence agencies nabbed the terrorist before he could slip into Afghanistan.

Earlier this month, the terrorist martyred ISI officials Sadiq and Hussain when they were at a local hotel in Khanewal, Punjab.

Sadiq, meanwhile, was martyred in Khanewal at a time when he was on a mission to take down the network of a banned outfit operating from Afghanistan.

South Punjab Additional Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Sahabzada Shahzad Sultan said the perpetrators were on a motorcycle.

Both officials were posthumously awarded the Hilal-e-Shujaat and Tamgha-e-Shujaat.

Sadiq, who headed the ISI’s CTD wing, was awarded the Sitara-e-Shujaat on March 23, 2021, in recognition of his bravery and courage against anti-national elements.

He joined the police force as a sub-inspector in 2002. After appearing for a high-level exam in 2009, he was appointed to the ISI, the premier intelligence agency, as the assistant director.

During his tenure, the spy agency official exposed key networks of banned outfits. After months of efforts, he gained access to the high command of Daesh. He also neutralised the terrorists after raiding and finding their ambush site in Faisalabad.

  • Blast takes place in Kachhi district.
  • Police say explosives were placed on roadside.
  • Balochistan under constant terror attacks recently.

In yet another terror incident in the restive province of Balochistan, at least one person was injured after an explosion took place in the Kachhi district of the province, police said on Monday. 

The police told media persons that the explosives were placed on a roadside.

Balochistan has been under constant terror attacks recently with several incidents taking place in the province. 

Bolan incident

Recently, at least 18 people were injured after a remote-control bomb detonated on a railway track in Bolan, forcing the train’s engine and seven carriages off the track.

Railway authorities said that the injured had been shifted to Combined Military Hospital (CMH), Sibi.

The Jaffer Express train was travelling from Machh to Sibi, when the blast occurred, local authorities said.

“A relief train was dispatched from Sibi to rescue passengers of the train and bring them to Sibi safely. Passengers on the Jaffer Express coming from Peshawar to Machh were stopped at Sibi and are now being brought to Quetta via buses,” they added.

According to Deputy Commissioner Kachhi Agha Samiullah, the blast was carried out by a remote-control device.

On the other hand, the carriages of the derailed train are being lifted from the railway track.

Terror attacks

In the annual report issued by the Centre for Research & Security Studies (CRSS), Balochistan suffered from 110 attacks last year, becoming the second most vulnerable province in the country.

Over 250 people lost their lives in terrorist attacks and counter-attacks, whereas over 200 sustained serious injuries in the province.

The last month of the year witnessed over two dozen attacks in quick succession, and that became one-fourth of the total fatalities that occurred in Balochistan, a province which has just 6% of the country’s population.

According to reports, the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) and Baloch Nationalist Army (BNA), the terrorist organisations, are mainly involved in terror incidents in the area-wise largest province of the country. In Balochistan, at least 14 major attacks took place mostly on security forces targets.

Security forces remained the primary target of terrorist attacks in the province.
