One of the most controversial personalities in Pakistan has to be Amir Liaquat Hussain. He has had a dramatic transition from being a religious scholar to TV host and somewhere, a mere politician. This guy knows how to stay relevant, especially due to the fact he surfaces on news every now and then.

Now Islamabad High Court got into action against Amir Liaquat, and here’s how they came up to the decision…

On Wednesday, IHC banned him from making TV appearances til further notice. Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui took note of a petition filed by a citizen. The petition sought a complete ban on the TV anchor, barring him from making appearances on TV, social media, print media on the accusation of using his influence to spread hatred.

It was further argued that Amir Liaquat does not hold any Islamic degree that would qualify him to be a professional Islamic scholar. It’s just a title that he has attributed to himself after hosting TV shows.

Shortly after the news circulated on social media, Pakistanis sought immense relief… here’s how people react:
