First of all I would like to greet all my Muslim visitors with a very happy and blessed Ramazan Kareem. May Allah shower His blessings on us during this holy month and forgive our sins… Amin!
Geo TV is the most popular TV channel in Pakistan. Although Geo sometimes telecast programmes that are not inline with our cultural and religious values, yet Geo is doing a great effort in the shape of ‘Aalim Online’, which is a religious informatory programme. The programme is produced and hosted by a former Federal Minister, Dr. Aamir Liaqat Hussain, who has a charming personality and good grip over religious and political issues. Dr. Aamir takes live phone calls in the programme, where people ask him religious questions. Then he asks those questions from two religious personalities (each from Sunny and Shia schools of thought). They reply the questions as per their sets of beliefs. Dr. Aamir arranges special programmes on important religious, cultiral, political and social issues. His programme on the night of 27th Ramazan (Lailat-ul-Qadar) is awaited by millions of Muslims and his duaa is heared with tears in eyes. He also reaches where there is some brutality or violance. He brings the truth on the TV screen without any fear. He is also trying his level best to clarify the misunderstandings about Islam.
Dr. Aamir was a member of terrorist political party MQM previously. However, he left them after their disliking on one of his programmes in which he had condemned British Government for awarding Knighthood to Salman Rushdi (who had done blesphamy against Prophet Muhammad PBUH in his book ‘Satanic Verses’). he also resigned from the ministry. We pray to Allah for giving him more honour and strength.
