Dania's mother has to save her daughter, so she's making up stories: Bushra Iqbal

Shah was arrested by the FIA wing earlier this week after Iqbal had filed a case against the former in July

Entertainment Desk December 24, 2022

In July this year, late televangelist Aamir Liaquat Hussain's first wife, Syeda Bushra Iqbal, filed a case against Hussain's third wife, Dania Shah. Iqbal had announced that she will be filing a case against Shah, with the cybercrime wing.

Earlier this week, Shah was taken into custody. According to Shah's mother, Salma, several police officers raided her house and subjected the latter and her children to torture. She further added officers thrashed Shah and dragged her to the police van as they took her away.

Soon after Shah was arrested, her mother alleged that it was Iqbal who had orchestrated the 'drama' and had her daughter arrested. Now, Iqbal is responding to Salma's allegations. Speaking to the media outside the court, Iqbal commented, "I've been hearing a lot of rumours, a lot of allegations being levelled against me."

She added, "This woman [Dania's] mother has been saying whatever she pleases against me. The first thing I'd like to clarify is that these kinds of people who didn't care about Aamir's dignity, what would they know about it anyway? She has to save her daughter, so she has to make up stories."

Iqbal went on, "As much as she creates a ruckus outside the court, Dania's mother is just as silent inside it. She doesn't have any evidence to present. These kinds of tales work here, not when you're in the courtroom. She has been saying that they have ample proof in voice recordings, and videos ever since Dania had filed for Khula. The said evidence is still not presented in court."

She further commented, "I believe there's no court outside of court. Whatever you have to say should be said inside the courtroom. Anyone can come up and allege whatever they please. They can claim whatever they like and we are ready to respond within legal boundaries. The kind of derogatory allegations Dania's mother had been making against me is just that - allegations. All they are after is money and we don't care about it. Aamir's kids are here to fight but not for the inheritance. They are here to fight for their late father's honour."

Yesterday, Judicial Magistrate East Mukesh Kumar on Friday rejected the bail application of Shah, the widow of the late TV anchor, in the case of posting his objectionable video online. The defence counsel Liaquat Ali Gabol Advocate said it is not clear who made the video and when and where it was made. The FIA prosecutor said the issue is not who made the video, but who posted it on the internet. Shah had said in an interview that she made this video.

Taking to Twitter, Iqbal announced that she will be filing a case against Dania and her mother. "Today we are going to file an application in FIA Cyber Crime against Dania Shah and her mother." She went on to request prayers as well."

It was reported that Shah had been arrested by the FIA for leaking Hussain's indecent video earlier this year. Shah had previously shared a clip of the late host on social media, which prompted uproar. Later, the television personality shared his two cents on the matter and revealed that he has no choice but to leave the country after 'indecent' videos made rounds on social media.
