Video of Aamir Liaquat hussain, using abusive language (off-air), that surfaced yesterday and got viral all over social media is being pulled off from YouTube, Facebook and other video sharing websites under the copyright infringement claims by Geo TV.
However, it looks that Geo got little late as video was downloaded to local machines by hundreds, if not thousands. They are not replicating Aamir Liaquat’s video by re-uploading it on count-less servers.
This can serve as a case study for many, who aren’t convinced with social media’s abilities and the power it has got in it’s tools. One video, one day and you are doomed.
And a lesson for media outlets and those who want to pull off a specific video: It’s never easy, near to impossible! So, make sure your video never make it to the social media – or you won’t see the face of life again.
Few believe that video was leaked by someone with aims to blackmail Mr. Aamir Liaquat, who currently hosts a Islamic TV show with ARY TV, while others opine that video was deliberately made viral by Geo TV after Aamir Liaquat moved to ARY Group – but of course, these are theories and we aren’t aware of the facts.
Clip shows him using profanity during recordings of various prgammes, most of them from Aalim Online – a TV show he used to do for Geo TV.
Aamir Liaquat has termed the video as fake and dubbed.
