Controversial Pakistani Aamir Liaquat Hussain died on Thursday at the age of 50, triggering a section of social media users in the country to allege that he was murdered. Hours later, supporters of Hussain began to hound his third wife, Dania Malik, by wishing her death. Dania took to Instagram to share the screenshots of the angry hate posts that she has been receiving from Hussain’s supporters.
Dania was Hussain’s third wife after the couple exchanged wedding vows in February this year. However, things turned ugly between Hussain and his teenager wife, who filed for a divorce in May this year.
Last month, Hussain announced on social media that Dania had released a series of indecent videos of him. Hurt by his third wife’s action, Hussain had said that he had made up his mind to leave Pakistan.
A visibly emotional Hussain had said in a video message, “Everyone has buried my reputation in the mud over a girl whose interviews should not have taken in the first place. She filed for divorce and I was complying with it. All these new YouTubers and so-called journalists who have come forward [to give coverage to Dania] have done great injustice to Pakistan.”
Reacting to the news of Hussain’s death, Dania wrote on Instagram, “May Allah forgive Aamir and grant his soul the highest place in Jannah. Ameen.”
However, this did not go down well with some of Hussain’s supporters as one wrote, “Why don’t you die, can you?” Dania replied, “Everyone has to die and I too will.”
Another angry supporter wrote, “You should also die. Go die.” Dania replied, “Don’t worry, the same people said the same thing about Aamir when he was alive. Now they are crying for him. Oh Allah, please forgive them and show them the right path.”
One supporter of Hussain taunted if Dania would spend her time observing iddat since she was claiming to be his widow. Iddat is a four-month mourning period observed by Muslim widows.
