Will the real Amir Liaquat please stand up?

Posted by

Express Tribune: Assistant Professor Abdul Rehman Shaheen has taught at Urdu university for 18 years and generally knows his Islamic History students by name, if not by face. But when The Express Tribune asked him about one student, Amir Liaquat Hussain, he stopped in his tracks.

“Dr Amir Liaquat Hussain who appears on TV?” exclaimed a baffled Shaheen. “Are you kidding me? I can say with complete surety that I have never seen him even once in class or during the exams.”

In fact, this department at the Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology (FUUAST) has had the honour of hosting the former federal minister and popular television host who has been enrolled in its Masters programme as a regular candidate for about two years.

Dr Shaheen was not the only one who did not believe that Amir Liaquat was enrolled. Students at FUAAST have never seen Hussain on campus. “This institution isn’t that big that if Amir Liaquat Hussain came we wouldn’t know,” said Hasan Siddiqui, a student in the business administration programme. “Any of his appearances would have become big news [on campus].” Mysteriously enough, since 2010, Hussain has also reportedly cleared several semesters of his Masters degree.

    This Amir Liaqat Ali is in guise of a scholar, Politician and PhD Doctor. He is like many other Mullah Speakers who mislead simple and uneducated, illiterate people as well as educated people of vicious nature. It is shameful for the media channels who allow him to speak on their programs.
    This guy is characterless and mentally sick. He should be charged due to his behavior and claiming that he is a Doctor Degree holder.
