The news of Aamir Liaquat marrying the third time and that too, an 18-year old has sparked quite the controversy on social media. Some think the motif behind this sudden revelation was to downplay the news of Tuba’s khulla, some are calling him a pedophile, some questioning the girl and some churning the funniest memes. Taking to Twitter, comedian Shehzad Ghias shared how the age difference among the two was unsettling for him, he also referred to his wife as a child:
Aamir Liaquat, 49, just got married to an 18 year old child….

And the debate has begun!
It’s legal so why make a fuss here! Everyone is allowed to marry girls of age 18 and above!!!

People were not in favour of calling her a child:
18 is not a child. I don't like the man but it is their right to marry whomever they want. 18 or 49

An 18 year old is an adult not a child.
Puberty is the time in life when a boy or girl becomes sexually mature. It is a process that usually happens between ages 10 and 14 for girls and ages 12 and 16 for boys. It causes physical changes, and affects boys and girls differently.

He is a pedophile. And No, 18yo are not grown enough to make marriage decision specially when it’s to someone who is almost 50. She is a child. https://t.co/t2QcBAzLBS

People were sharing how the girl is the age of her kids:
I can’t understand how some people think this is okay. Do they somehow not realise she’s old enough to be his daughter, in fact she’s younger than his actual daughter who’s in her mid 20’s! Can you not see how gross this is?! https://t.co/bysAa9n9LI
