In response to a petition filed against Dania Malik, the third wife of the late televangelist Aamir Liaquat Hussain, a Karachi court on Tuesday issued notices to the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) cybercrime wing and other respondents.
A welfare organisation had earlier petitioned a district and sessions judge to take action against Dania for posting an inappropriate video of the former MNA.
Advocate Amir Jameel, who represents the petitioner, has asked the court to direct the FIA to take action against Dania because he claims that she is to blame for Hussain’s pornographic videos going viral on social media. The court ordered the parties in the case and cybercrime officials to submit their responses to the plea by July 6.
Additionally, the petitioner has argued that Liqauat’s third wife has damaged the reputation of Pakistani women globally. He said she deserved to be punished for publishing such a video about a small argument.
Aamir Liaquat, who was discovered dead at his home on June 9, had previously been experiencing severe mental distress due to online trolls who had harassed him nonstop after his third wife filed for divorce and made damaging accusations against him.
Dania filed a divorce petition with the court more than a month prior to Hussain’s passing.
The adolescent demanded Rs 100,000 per month for personal expenses. She also demanded other things “promised by Aamir Liaquat at the time of their marriage” and more than Rs100 million in Haq Mehr (alimony).
