Popular television personality and former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmaker Aamir Liaquat Hussain passed away on Thursday at his residence in Karachi. Reportedly, the Karachi-based politician and televangelist was found unconscious at his house and was rushed to a hospital in the provincial capital.

Since the news broke, social media users expressed shock, grief and offered condolences to his family.

Hussain was born on July 5, 1971, in Karachi to politician Sheikh Liaquat Hussain and columnist Mahmooda Sultana. Hussain started his career in the entertainment industry as a radio broadcaster on FM101. However, he catapulted to fame with his popular Ramazan transmission on a local channel. 

Hussain became famous due to a religious program he hosted on a local channel, Aalim Online. In January 2014, he became the vice president of Geo TV and hosted the game show Inaam Ghar. 

The famous television host was also an important member of PTI. However, in April of this year, Hussain announced his decision of leaving the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf following the dissolution of the National Assembly (NA).

Taking to the microblogging website Twitter, the television personality said, “After the drama is over, I want to say that what the prime minister did prove that the opposition was doing the right thing, so I am announcing to leave the PTI.”
