Mehwish Hayat, was recently targeted with blatant sexism by our very own televangelist, Aamir Liaquat.

Why you wonder? For commenting on and condemning the US drone strike that killed the Iranian military commander, Qassem Soleimani, in Iraq.

Hayat tweeted out," Can’t believe that just 72 hours into 2020 and the world is already teetering on the edge of war. I guess this is what happens when the "leader of the free world" takes unilateral decisions without regard for international laws. This isn’t just about Iran and USA. God protect us #Soleimani”

But Liaquat couldn't hold back. Calling her an ‘item girl’, Liaquat had tweeted out telling Hayat to refrain from giving irrelevant comments on political issues.

Taking a dig at her, he remarked “just because Mehwish received a Tamgha-e-Imtiaz, the ‘item girl’ should not pass such statements and should keep Pakistan’s foreign policy in mind. He added that if Soleimani was alive, ‘would he have invited her to perform in Iran?'”

Luckily, Hayat is not one to grin and bear. She immediately hit back by reminding him graciously that this ‘item girl’ is exercising her ‘democratic right’ to have an opinion while Liaquat keeps ‘stooping low’. She also reminded him that she is still waiting for him to file a case against her on her last film Load Wedding.

Earlier in 2019, Aamir Liaquat claimed that he wanted to sue the actors and directors of Load Wedding for defaming him through their film.

Aamir Liaquat is a constant feature of the news cycle, but his sexist remarks and controversial tweets are not winning him any love; it just gives credence to anonymous online trolls who can't seem to accept a successful woman who can hold her own opinion.

A very appropriate response.

Reinforces our belief the Amir Liaquat's common sense equals his knowledge of quantum physics!

He got slapped by Fawad at the wedding, and now got virtually slapped by Mehwish on Twitter :) Good going Mr. Liaquat. Mehwish, you go girl - good response :)

How can a man discarded by his own family be acceptable to the general public?

Good Miss Mehwish Hayat, love your reply....

Anyone is entitled to his/her view on what goes on in the world. I wonder what Aamir Liaquat is on about and why he has such complex to be jealous of Mehwish's success and achievements?

I don’t even have to read what Amir liaquat said. But with Ms Hayat, I may have difference of opinion and thought but I respect her Intelligence and will to stand for issues she believe in. She does so gracefully and with respect.

Ignore the noise Mehwish. We need more people like you and less like him.
Ijaz Jan 07, 2020 06:35pm
Who cares what Aamir Liaqat thinks?
Shahid Kamal Jan 07, 2020 07:36pm
Both show-biz persons want to be in news.
Nasir Hameed Jan 07, 2020 08:00pm
So that is how Amir is going to stay relevant and in news.
Ismail Jan 07, 2020 09:08pm
I am not a fan for Ammir Liaquat Husain. But I agree with him 100% on this subject. Mehwish is wrong here.
Syed Hasan Jan 07, 2020 09:58pm
Everyone has a right to express his/her opinion and it should be respected by others.

@M. Saeed why not?
hohn Jan 08, 2020 05:32am
of all the people, he should seal his mouth and NOT say anything
Sohail Jan 08, 2020 07:02am
Thanks Mehwish . You are standing up for all women.

This sad , Maehwish character actually admired the character that was loosely based on mr Liquat, in the game show , format where prizes are giving out , mr Liquat , should understand public figures ,are open for good or bad ! If you can not handle good nature caricatures,in a teaching, educatating Pakistani public to say no to dowery, you should have shown a sense of humor!

I pray Pakistan promote more progressive female activist as Mehwish Hayat. She is a symbol of female liberty that will convert Pakisnani females to be self sufficient as they take part in their country's social development from so many 'TRIBAL' superstitious.

@Ismail "Mehwish is wrong here." You're perfectly entitled to your opinion, but I hope you don't mind being in a very lonely minority.
Danial Jan 08, 2020 08:27pm
Hayat is bold, courageous, intelligent and indeed different. She is best representative of a progressing nation and indeed TI. Amir on the other hand is shallow and narrow minded. Grow up dude. What a shame how he has treated his first wife and daughter.

All the power to her. Liaquat is nalaik.

Mehwish Hayat has a cool soothing personality. Wish her success in her career and life
