When alive #AamirLiaquat hurt and insulted too many people but now since he is gone, he can’t hurt anybody anymore. Those who feel hurt should forgive him and pray for him since all of us have to go one day.

This was the last voice note @AamirLiaquat sent me at 6.32 PM yesterday.
We are all responsible for his death.
He was a victim of revenge porn, his mental state was deteriorating but we continued to bully him for our own pleasure.
