it was in fact Aamir’s second wife, Syeda Tuba Anwar, who pressured him
Dr Bushra Iqbal, who is the first ex-wife of Aamir Liaquat Hussain, has given a rare insight into the breakdown of her marriage with the late Islamic scholar.
Since Aamir’s untimely demise, Dr Iqbal has repeatedly defended her former husband, whether it was in court or in the public eye and on social media.
Appearing on a podcast with Hafiz Ahmed, Dr Iqbal spoke about her marriage and divorce, and shed light on her relationship with Aamir.
Dr Iqbal stated that she had a good relationship with Aamir and that they did not want to get divorced.
She went on to reveal that it was in fact Aamir’s second wife, Syeda Tuba Anwar, who pressured him into divorcing her and that he should have nothing to do with their children.
Dr Iqbal claimed that she had never stopped Aamir from meeting their two children, Ahmed and Dua, and that he was in regular contact with them.
She went on to say that Tuba was not happy with the relationship Aamir Liaquat had with his children and due to the tension, she had driven a wedge between a father and his children.
Tuba and Aamir had divorced after three years of marriage, and not long after, he announced his third marriage to 18-year-old Syeda Dania Shah.
However, the marriage was short-lived, and the pair announced their separation just three months later.
The entertainment industry went into a state of shock when news of Aamir Liaquat’s death broke out, and ex-wife Dania Shah claimed there was foul play involved, and demanded a post-mortem.
The post-mortem was rejected due to the fact that Aamir’s children were his legal heirs and they had not requested for a post-mortem to take place before the burial.
Prior to the burial, a medico-legal examination had taken place and it was reported that the death had not occurred in suspicious circumstances.
Dania Shah then requested for the body to be exhumed and a post-mortem to take place, but Aamir’s children and Dr Iqbal fought the petition, and closed it down as a result.
Dr Iqbal revealed on the podcast this decision was made as per the written request in Aamir’s will.
She revealed that Aamir had already stated that after his death, a post-mortem investigation must not be conducted.
She shared that he had continuously made this point whilst he was alive.
She continued by saying that due to the nature of his profession as well as being a political worker, his life was threatened many times.
As a result of this, he had always maintained he didn’t give anyone permission to carry out a post-mortem and that he must be buried in the way he had died, no matter the circumstances.
Dr Iqbal went on to say that if she had suspected any foul play in his death then she would have been the first person to request an investigation.
But his death was natural and she had respected the contents of his will.
Since the podcast was released, many people have come forward to applaud Dr Iqbal for her grace and elegance, and the way with which she continues to respect her ex-husband.
One individual wrote: “Lots of respect for this graceful woman. She has not bad-mouthed her ex-husband, which speaks volumes of her character.
“I wish her all the success and happiness with her children and family.”
Another said: “She is the epitome of grace.”
A third wrote: “Bushra you are an inspiration for many women Ma’Sha’Allah [praise be to God]. May Allah make your life more blessed and beautiful.”
