Maulana Tariq Jameel’s dua concluding PM Imran Khan’s Ehsas Telethon on Thursday 23rd of March has attracted a lot of attention on social media.
Certain points he included in his speech and prayers managed to attract two-pronged reactions from social media users, including the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan.
Ever since the Ehsas Telethon concluded, the hashtags #tariqjamil and #molanaTariqJameel became Pakistan’s top trends on social media.
Taking it to social media HRCP registered its dissatisfaction, saying “HRCP is appalled at Maulana #TariqJamil’s recent statement inexplicably correlating women’s ‘modesty’ to the #Covid19 pandemic. Such blatant objectification is unacceptable and, when aired on public television, only compounds the misogyny entrenched in society”.
Many have taken to social media, to register their protest over Maulana Tariq Jameel’s remarks that immodest women are the cause behind coronavirus pandemic.
However, not everyone felt offended by Maulana’s remarks, and many appreciated him for enlightening and guiding the listeners during these turbulent times.
The other part of Maulana Tariq Jamil’s dua has irked many as he declared Pakistani Media as Liars, the contrasting views on social media prompted a debate between users.
