Did Aamir Liaquat Teach Shahbaz Sharif Some Lessons About Decency?

There is a time and place for every remark.

Aamir Liaquat Shahbaz Sharif motorway rape case

Aamir Liaquat Hussain has been a target for trolls and ‘meme-makers’ for quite some time now. He has a habit of saying controversial things, and has acquired quite the unsavory reputation for it.

But as a saying goes, even a broken clock is right twice a day, Aamir too surprised his haters by becoming the voice of reason recently.

The last thing we expect is something sensible coming out of his mouth. But his recent speech at the National Assembly regarding the tragic motorway rape incident has made many people reflect on their mindset.

On the other hand, people are upset with Shahbaz Sharif, President of the PML-N, for his insensitive remarks about the same event.

Here’s what Shahbaz Sharif said

The Motorway rape case has left well-meaning Pakistanis fuming with anger. The whole country has united to fight for the due rights of women, ensuring their safety, and shielding their freedom.

At the National Assembly, ruling and opposition parties presented their case, spoke on the matter, and put forth solutions to stop such horrendous incidents from happening.

But leave it to the President of the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) to use any and every platform to boast about his party’s ruling era. Although he presented some valid arguments, somewhere along the line, he went astray. Shahbaz Sharif said:

Since this horrific incident took place at the Sialkot motorway, it won’t be inappropriate to add that this motorway too, Alhamdulillah, was built under Nawaz Sharif’s guidance and leadership.

Insensitive much?

Let’s take a look at the video:

 

Public Reaction

After this speech, even Federal Minister for Communications and Federal Minister for Postal Services, Murad Saeed, displayed disappointment. He said the opposition was not addressing the broader issue, and rather debating over who built the motorway.

People were outraged at his audacious insensitivity and blatant brags. Some wanted him canceled, while others believe this was expected of him. Let’s take a look at how some netizens reacted:

Justifications

In trying to justify his words, the Official PML-N Punjab Twitter account might have made matters worse:

 

 

And Here’s what Aamir Liaquat Hussain Said

Maybe this man can learn a thing or two from Aamir Liaquat who gave a heartfelt speech, demanding that rapists be hanged in public. Here’s what he said:

At the end I’d like to say, I’m joining my hands to beg you. As their partner, as my sisters’ brother, I just want to say that we don’t know how long we will stay in this assembly for.

But this assembly will become a part of history if we pass a bill that publicly hangs rapists and sexual harassers who target young girls.

 

Let’s take a look at the video:

 

Aamir Liaquat Hussain could definitely teach Shahbaz Sharif a thing or two about the severity of the motorway rape case. The public does not care about who built what. The public does not care about who rules where. The public does not care about who owns what. The public wants their leaders to have the decency and the sense to deal with such matters with utmost respect and sincerity.

Shahbaz Sharif has apologized for his remarks, but one wonders what was the need for making those tone-deaf remarks at all.

Perhaps the social media outcry made him reconsider the poor choice of words.

  1. Remember who let rapist abid ali loose on us again after he had raped a mother and daughter in 2013 alongwoth 4 or 5 other animals? It was bahawalnagar punjab and thw.man who went and put his hideous hands on the victims head and promiaed justice was none other than khadime aala himself. Soon the rapiats were released after crime had been proved by the way after coersing thw victims family with connivance of police and judiciary as is common. Lets not forget 250 plus rapes of minors in qasoor area and dozens of rape murders of minor girls and boys in punjab under his shameful watch. What do u expect from these animals who actually employ thwse rapists and murderers to do their dirty work. Remember modeltown? The murderers were in uniform that time. It ia a judgement on us that these horrible people are still at large afyer looting and plundering us ofor so long while their minions are busy raping and killing us.
