LAHORE (Web Desk) – Pakistani reality TV pioneer Waqar Zaka on Monday joined the bloc of critics against actor Hamza Ali Abbasi by posting a 20-minute video in which he slammed the latter for raising questions about Ahmedis during his Ramzaan show.

In the video, Zaka alleged: “Abbasi does such stunts to gain cheap publicity without having the basic knowledge of Islamic and its teachings,” further adding that he fully respects Hamza Ali Abbasi for his work as an actor.

At one moment, he said that the affairs relating to Ahmedis had been settled long ago in the 1970s and that there was no reason to again raise such questions, especially on a Ramazan show.

However, he insisted that Ahmedis must not be killed for their beliefs and state should protect their rights just like other citizens of Pakistan.

Waqar Zaka also added: “When I visited Burma some years back to help Rohingyas, Abbasi criticized me for this on his Facebook fan page saying that I should have struggled for citizenship of the Burmese Muslims instead, however, afterwards when I request him to help out an acid attack victim, he simply ignored it.”

He also criticized Hamza Ali Abbasi for attending “night parties, chasing girls, drinking wine and working in films in which girls appeared semi-nude.”

In the concluding part of the video, Waqar Zaka also claimed that the biggest fraud of Ahmadi leaders had been revealed in the Panama Papers leak, and urged ordinary Ahmedis to stop funding their “fraud leadership”.
