The third wife of the late televangelist Aamir Liaquat Hussain, Dania Malik, was the subject of a petition, and on Tuesday a court in Karachi served notices on her and other respondents.
A welfare organisation had earlier brought a complaint against Dania before a district and sessions judge for publishing an inappropriate video of the former MNA.
Asserting that Dania was responsible for Hussain’s pornographic videos going viral on social media, the petitioner’s attorney, Advocate Amir Jameel, has asked the court to order the FIA to take action against Dania. The court instructed the parties and cybercrime officials to respond to the plea by July 6th.
The petitioner has further argued that Liqauat’s third wife has harmed the reputation of Pakistani women around the world. According to him, she ought to be punished for publishing such a video about a small disagreement.
When his third wife filed for divorce and made serious accusations against him, Aamir Liaquat, who was found dead at his home on June 9, was subjected to constant online harassment. As a result, he was in severe mental distress and eventually committed suicide.
Dania filed a court petition seeking a divorce from the televangelist more than a month prior to Hussain’s passing.
The adolescent requested Rs 100,000 in personal expenses each month. She also asked for additional items “promised by Aamir Liaquat at the time of their marriage” in addition to her Haq Mehr (alimony) demand of more than Rs100 million.
