I had never
heard the name of Amir Lyaqat before until I received an email with
a You-Tube link and the subject line reading about some fake
scholar. Out of curiosity, I watched the clip for a few minutes and
it was not difficult to assess the kind of trash I was looking at.
It seems the video has been shared with more or less every one
around the globe within a few days. Only I have received 3 copies
of the link from three different people.
As far as using
the colorful language is concerned, occasionally, I suppose, most of
us end up using when pushed against the wall. But using that
language with no justifiable reason and using it as a figure of
speech makes this person simply the lowest of the lowest kind
riff-raff. I don’t know what is he doctor of, but only today some
one mentioned that his degree is fake too. So the guy is caught red
handed selling his fake antics. The scholars and responsible people
do not behave the way this character is caught doing in front of the
camera. I admire the member of his team who was bold enough to
uncover yet another fake – I thought all the fakes are in the
parliament and various legislative assemblies of Pakistan.
Make no mistake,
the people have not forgotten or overlooked the 16 hour electric
load shedding or the absence of gas in their kitchens. They have
been talking about them ever since the PPP thugs took over, and I am
sure they will still be talking about it for the next 10 years. But
the discovery of real Amir Lyaqat provides a break in the monotony
and provides them with a change of pace with additional
column, I am having a little difficulty to establish whether you are
upset finding that someone can stoop so low as this fake scholar, or
are you upset that people are celebrating the discovery of yet
They will soon
forget all about him, but not before he forgets about his deceptive
business and looks for a job in a different field that does not
expose his face – such as, for example, a clown’s job. The public
will never see his real face. As long as he does not repeat his
favorite colorful words, people will never know his true identity.
He can live happily ever after hiding behind the clown’s mask.
