Many people got fake degrees to contest the 2002 elections but few had the audacity to aim for instant doctorates. Not only did ‘Dr’ Aamir Liaquat Hussain win his election, he was soon elevated to the rank of Minister of State for Religious Affairs.
Posing as a religious scholar on Geo TV he beamed himself across the nation on Aalim Online. Soon Geo TV was boasting that the programme had taken the nation and our Commando -Salamat by storm. Geo’s website boldly states:
General Parvaiz Musharaf is a self confessed fan of Dr.Liaqat and his program Aalim Online. To quote the president; “Aalim on line is doing a great service for Islam. Dr.Aamer Liaqat is amazing. I like to watch him and hear him.He is doing a great service for Islam through Geo. I am the biggest fan of Dr. Aamer Liaqat Hussain.
On one occasion it was widely reported that Mrs Sehba Musharraf even rang to tell Aamir Liaquat Hussain that he had reduced the mighty Commando Salamat to tears with the power of his TV sermons.
Holy Guacamole, Batman!
So when the scandal about his fake degrees broke out did the Jahil-Online panic? No, of course not. With his biggest fan supporting him who could take him on.
But then the silly fool blew it – completely and utterly. Jahil-Online committed blasphemy of such nature that even Commando Salamat found it difficult to forgive.
