Babies given away live on Geo TV talk show
A prime-time show aired on Geo TV is giving away abandoned babies to childless couples.
Presenter Aamir Liaquat Hussain has given two babies to childless couples so far during Islam�۪s holy month.
He claimed the babies would have been “eaten by cats or dogs” had they not been discovered by the show.
“If we didn’t find this baby, a cat or a dog would have eaten it,” Hussain proclaimed during one broadcast, before presenting a tiny girl wrapped in pink and red to her new parents. The audience erupted with applause.
Hussain is one of Pakistan’s most popular talk-show hosts. During his marathon broadcasts he cooks, interviews clerics and celebrities, entertains children and hosts game shows.
He usually gives prizes like motorbikes, mobile phones and land deeds to audience members who answer questions about Islam.
