The politician and entertainer were found unconscious at his home in the provincial capital of Karachi and rushed to a local hospital.
As a result of his critical condition earlier, the 49-year-old was shifted to a private hospital but was unable to be revived.
Pervaiz Ashraf, the speaker of the National Assembly, confirmed his death by postponing the house’s session to commemorate the lawmaker’s death. He has passed away, so the proceedings of the house have been adjourned until tomorrow at 5 p.m.
Several times his house staff knocked on the door of the anchor’s room without success. He had locked his door, according to sources.
He complained of chest pain last night, according to the staff. From his house in Khudadad Colony, the former lawmaker was taken to a hospital.
Separately, driver of the ex-MNA reported to city police hearing “screams from Aamir’s room a day earlier”.
It is believed that the body will be taken to Jinnah Hospital or Civil Hospital for post-mortem, after which it will be given to the immediate family.
Formerly a member of the MQM-P, Aamir joined the PTI. During the rule of the military dictator General Pervez Musharraf, he served as state minister. From 2002 to 2018, he was a member of the National Assembly.
He was born on July 5, 1972. He left behind two children.
During Ramazan, Aamir hosted Ramazan transmissions – game shows that ran before and after Iftaar. His early popularity stemmed from his work as host of Aalim Online, a private news channel he joined in 2001.
His career included hosting Ramazan shows.
During the past few years, Aamir has also been controversial.
He has caused controversy with his multiple marriages, his political statements, and most recently his leaked videos. As a result of his videos being leaked, he said he was forced to leave the country.
According to Ramzan Chippa, the head of the Chippa Welfare Trust, Aamir was rushed to the hospital earlier that day but had already passed away 15 to 20 minutes before he reached the hospital.
Keeping in line with Aamir’s will, the philanthropist requested that Aamir be buried, alongside his parents, at Abdullah Shah Ghazi’s mausoleum. The departed lawmaker’s final rites will be overseen by him, the spokesman explained.
