The past couple of days were no less than a doomsday scenario in Sindh province, with the apocalyptic heat wave claiming the lives of more than 1000 people.

Nature’s curse inevitably turned Karachi into a furnace-like city and the lethal temperature soared as high as 45 degrees Celsius. As if the torture of the blazing heat was not enough, extreme power outage and the shortage of water heightened up the upheaval of Karachiites to a notch further.

While the melancholy in the metropolis alerted the media, Pakistan’s top televangelist Aamir Liaquat took to the city’s leading health service centre, Jinnah Hospital to visit the ailing victims of the heat wave.

On the 23rd June Iftar Transmission of Ramazan Shareef on Geo TV, Liaquat ditched his usual lavish set and conducted a special live broadcast at the hospital.

There, the religious scholar unveiled the real situation of devastation where wrecked families were in tears, ambulances were incessantly bringing heat stroke patients and dead bodies were turning up every now and then.

Under the sizzling sweltering sun, a large number of crestfallen people from all parts of the province gathered beside Mr. Liaquat to share their tales of despair. However, the misery and frustration written across their faces was enough to speak volumes about the tragedy they were going through.

The philanthropic relief efforts done by the honorable Army of Pakistan were acknowledged in heaps during his live transmission, for they were the first to establish desirable camps of clean drinking water and an adequate ward for immediate treatment of heat stroke victims at the Jinnah hospital.

During his show, Liaquat frequently appealed to the nation to generously donate water and ice, for the hospital was in desperate need of these life-saving necessities. Soon enough, hoards of people started turning up at the health center to contribute either hefty amounts of money or huge amounts of ice and water.

While he conducted Iftar with around 2000 people at the outskirts of the hospital, he also endowed his one-month television salary and one-day revenues earned from Inaam Ghar’s promotion in the name of relief efforts for Karachi’s heat wave calamity.

Though people surely love to hate Aamir Liaquat and he is seldom in anyone’s good book, many have been quite touched with Liaquat’s thoughtful gesture.

One has to admit, only Aamir Liaquat had the guts to take the initiative in the boiling heat, unite the city and unleash the true picture of Karachi’s catastrophe. Massive respect for him!
