KARACHI: Religious scholar and famous TV Show anchor Amir Liaquat Hussain admitted that he was wrong to oppose Mustafa Kamal, the head of Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP).
Amir Liaquat recently disassociated himself from MQM after Altaf Hussain’s anti-Pakistan slogans and speech.
“After hearing anti-Pakistan speeches delivered by Altaf Hussain, I have come to conclusion that I was wrongly defending MQM while opposing Mustafa Kamal,” Aamir Liaquat said while Speaking in Samaa’s programme “Awaz”.
To a question about his relationship with Mustafa Kamal, he said he has now tendered apology to Mustafa Kamal, adding that he is ‘embarrassed’.
He, however, ruled out joining PSP or any other political party, Samaa reported.
To another query, the religious scholar said that he is receiving death threats from ‘known voices’ via telephone.
“I have been told that If Pakistan is so beloved to you then you will bury there,” the former MQM leader said while recalling threatening message.
He denied that he was an adviser of Altaf Hussain.
“One of my teacher once said that when someone gets mentally ill, there is a need to hear him and nod in affirmative. This is what I have been doing as a leader of MQM,” Aamir Liaquat Hussain said when asked if he was an adviser of Altaf Hussain.
To another question, he said he had love and hate relationship with Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad, who he said was not privy to affairs of the MQM
