Aamir Liaquat took to twitter and alleged that PTI Karachi division president Firdous Shamim Naqvi has denied to give him ticket from his hometown.

“Firdous Shamim Naqvi said belligerent things to me which i am unable to write here keeping in view the respect of PTI chief Imran Khan,” he added.

Directing PTI workers, Aamir Liaquat advises them to refrain from using abusive language against him, adding that he doesn’t want to contest election from Karachi but it was the wish of PTI Chairman Imran Khan who had requested him to contest election from metropolis.

He demanded PTI leadership to take notice of his reservations otherwise a Pandora box of blame games and accuses will get open which would be not good for party.

Aamir Liaquat further said that he will announce his final decision tomorrow after doing consultation with religious scholars.

The televangelist- who recently joined PTI, but after his criticism against religious sects Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) management is also mulling to expel him from party as leadership believe that his statements will affect the party’s votebank in Punjab and Karachi negatively.

TV personality and politician Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain joined PTI in March at a joint press conference with the party chief, Imran Khan.

Addressing press conference flanked by Imran, Liaquat claimed that the PTI will clean sweep the upcoming general elections from Karachi.

It is pertinent to mention here that Liaquat had parted ways with the MQM after a brief detention at Rangers headquarters in August 2016.

He was detained along with nine other MQM leaders after party workers attacked media houses following party founder Altaf Hussain’s anti-Pakistan speech.

In May this year, the electronic media watchdog had slapped a 30-day ban and issued a notification to the television host for hurting ‘sentiments of different sects’ and creating sensation ‘through unwarranted drama on the basis of religion’, which was overruled by Islamabad high Court (IHC).
