As if Pakistani TV host Aamir Liaquat Hussain was not in the news enough already, he’s notched once more on the pole of kitsch-ism! Add in the previous pieces we’ve done on both him and shah.

But this time he has gone too far. He called a amateur singer Taher Shah (famed for his song EyetoEye)on his show and insulted and humiliated him!

 Amir, who is one of the lead hosts of the country, is running his Ramadan transmission on privately owned GEO TV.  “So, who asked you to sing?” and “So no matter what people say, you will go on doing what you want?” were just some of the questions that Hussain asked Tahir Shah. Not only that, the host went on to make personal and insulting comments like, “Are your hair for real? All of them?” and “You will kill my fish!”

Credit to Taher Shah, he was gracious throughout the show, even when the host put a snake around his neck that he clearly was not comfortable with!

Taher Shah became an internet sensation with his song “Eye to Eye.” Amazingly the sensation was neither the song nor the artist’s supreme singing skill rather just the opposite!

The singer though obviously very uncomfortable, kept up with his good humor throughout the show, though he later voiced his discontent.

Viewers were not happy with the way the show went as well. He got support

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even though some of his supporters had not completely become sympathetic to him, but they nevertheless supported him against Aamir Liaquat Hussain.

If anything positive has come out of the demeaning show is that Taher Shah ended up getting some positive support and a lot of respect! So there was some good out of it!

 

 

Whatever the case may be, it goes without saying that Mr. Hussain took things too far. He has so far been ridiculing people, twisting religion and wringing it out for all its worth but the show. But this time around, with an obnoxious, giddy and seemingly high Aamir Liaquat and a visibly uncomfortable and embarrassed Taher Shah everyone feels that this is the depth of shame and bad humor. More, it is something which is in extremely bad taste.

But anything for ratings and viewership isn’t that right? Maybe not this time; maybe this is one atrocity too much. Maybe this will churn into a lesson every over-the-top-concerned-only-of-cheap-publicity-host will not soon forget! 

We hope it does!
