Salam. I think its time I bring about some clarity regarding my relationship with my ex husband Aamir Liaquat. He has divorced me.

Almost a year and a half past her wedding, the actress made the news about her divorce with Aamir public through a social media post. She wrote,
With a heavy heart, I want to make people aware of a development in my life. My close family and friends are aware that after a separation of 14 months, it was evident that there was no hope for reconciliation in sight and I had to opt to take khula from court. I cannot express how difficult it has been but I trust Allah and His plans. I would appeal to everyone that my decision is respected during these testing times.I cannot express how difficult it has been but I trust Allah and His plans.

Syeda Tuba Anwar started receiving hate and criticism from the Pakistani media soon after announced her separation from Aamir. Her social media handles were filled with hate comments. In accordance to the situation, she requested Islamic experts to speak up for her as all women has the right to exercise their rights as mentioned in Sharia and Pakistan’s constitution. She called the media’s allegations a ‘complete distortion.’ Aamir reacted to the situation, and said,
Islam permits women to seek divorce if the marriage is no longer working. Taking a graceful exit from a toxic and abusive marriage is a right and not a sin. I still respect her and she is still my wife, however, she considers the marriage as null and void. I would accept Tuba if she comes back. I’ll consider [her] as my elder sister.”
In February 2022, after getting divorced from Syeda, Amir got married for the third time to an 18-year-old girl Syeda Dania Shah. In May 2022 Dania Shah also filled a divorce case against Amir with the allegations that Amir used to torcher her and locked her in room for days. She said,
He (Liaquat) was very cruel. He would lock me in the room for four days straight. He wouldn’t give food to me on time and would keep me up all night long. I’m a child, I’m not even old enough. He would humiliate me. He would bring every single matter to me, be it the maids or even the media, anything he disliked, he would misbehave with me. He used to push me around and even threatened that he would shoot me. He even tried to strangle me.”
On June 9, 2022, Aamir Liaquat Hussain was found unresponsive at his home in Khudadad Colony, Karachi, and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. According to a close relative who spoke to the media,
Doctor Sahib was not feeling well and felt discomfort in his chest last night [night between Wednesday and Thursday] but refused to go to hospital,” his domestic help narrated. “We rushed to his room today [Thursday] after he screamed with pain. We broke open the door and found him unconscious.”
According to the District East SSP Abdur Raheem Shirazi, Hussain and his two domestic servants lived in Karachi’s Khudadad Colony. One of his servants gave the police the first piece of information at 1 p.m. He said,
The details of the items seized from the house cannot be disclosed as it is part of the investigations, The actual cause could be ascertained only after an autopsy. Hussain had passed away about 15 to 20 minutes before he was brought to hospital.”
Syeda Tuba Anwar started her acting career in 2020 with ARY Digital’s drama serial ‘Bharaas,’ She appeared on screen in the role of Mina opposite Salman Saeed and Zubab Rana. Explaining about her character, she said,
The girl I’m playing in Bharaas is called Mina. She’s someone who is straightforward, strong, is hardly seen crying in the play and is a working woman who stands up for herself, speaks the truth and accepts her mistakes. A fierce woman, she can differentiate between right and wrong.”
Next, in November 2021, She became part of Munim Majeed written and Jasim Abbas directed drama serial called ‘Yeh Ishq Samjh Na Aye,’ She played the role of Nimra, a woman who belongs to a well established family and is ready to do anything for love, opposite Shahroz Sabzwari. Talking about the show, she said,
So it will be altogether a different and refreshing screen. We are shooting in the most beautiful and unused spaces. So the overall look and feel of the drama will be an experience in itself for the viewer. The director Jasim Abbas has a vision and he makes sure he gets what he’s looking [for]. He takes his time on each frame. What I also love about working with him is he’s putting a lot of effort in cinematography along with the nitty gritty of the content/scene.”
During an interview, when she was asked about her acting journey, she replied,
I was working in the media behind the scenes since a long time, and during these years, I’ve had so many people tell me that I should do something in front of the camera and that I’d be great at it but I was never really sure. Almost 11 months back, I thought let’s give it a try and gave an audition at Six Sigma Plus and then later completely forgot about it. Then, months later, I got a call from them and they discussed this project with me. I wasn’t sure if I should go ahead with it because of the pandemic.”
The actress also shared about her future goal regarding her acting career. She told the media that she will try not to do repetitive roles as she is more keen to experiment and explore her acting skills. She is also focused about learning new things from her seniors from the industry.
- During a media interaction, with his third wife, Syeda Dania Shah, Aamir revealed that he was ready to accept Syeda Tuba back as her wife. He said,
If she marries again, it will be illegitimate because her khula is void. According to the Shariah, khula also requires the husband’s consent, it requires both parties to sit together and mutually agree to end their marriage. I would like to tell Tuba that she can spend her life however she wishes, work, do whatever, but she should respect the bounds of religion. She can even come back to me if she wishes but Dania is here to stay.”
I won’t mind that either, I will consider her [Tuba] my elder sister. I am also doing a few serials with Urduflix and she may be in them too.”
- The actress has featured on the covers of various popular fashion magazines.
