KARACHI: Pakistani pop icon Ali Haider lashed out at TV show host and social media personality Waqar Zaka for criticising him and Hadiqa Kiani for abandoning the deceased guitarist.

In a video message shared on his social media, Ali Haider took to task Waqar Zaka for naming him and Hadiqa Kiani among others for failing to show up when Amir Zaki died.

"Don't you have any idea that I am living in the United States for the past two years and Hadiqa Kiani is in Lahore," he said. "But you were in Karachi and you are such a credible social worker. Why didn't you help him?"

Ali Haider chided Zaka for seeking attention and using Zaki's death to gain fame. Haider took a shot at Zaka when he said that though Waqar had gotten his hair cut, he had not gained any sense at all.

"If I want to do something good or charitable, I will do it in secret. Gabbing a mobile phone and shooting a video to seek attention is very easy," he said.

Haider said that everyone knew about his good deeds and regarding his charitable nature. He said that he'd always remembered Waqar Zaka in his prayers and would still like to advise him to stop blackmailing artists.

"Everyone knows that artists in Pakistan enjoy a great deal of respect and adulation," he said.

Ali Haider said that everyone knew about Waqar Zaka's reputation and now he did as well. He warned Zaka to refrain from blackmailing artists.

In the end, Ali Haider also warned the public not to heed Waqar's words since tomorrow if another person would die, Waqar would grab a cellphone and start making videos for the sake of publicity.

Waqar Zaka calls out musical artists for abandoning Amir Zaki

TV show host and social media personality Waqar Zaka called out musicians Ali Haider, Hadiqa Kiani and Ahmad Jahanzaib for abandoning guitarist Amir Zaki when he died.

Waqar shot the video from Edhi Morgue in Sohrab Goth where Amir Zaki's body was kept. Zaka lashed out at the said artists in his video and said that when Zaki had died everyone had abandoned him.

"Now everyone would say that we spent a very good time with him when he was alive," he said. "Now come and see what condition he is in," he added.

Waqar lamented in the video that it was unbecoming that a legend of Zaki's stature was lying in a bad condition in Edhi morgue.
