After Maulana Tariq Jamil called out the media and made certain remarks about why we had been punished with a virus like Corona, the feminist brigade and a number of media personnel went out calling the cleric for his comments. Following the backlash he received, the respected cleric apologized for his certain remarks that might have upset a certain sect of the society.
A tweet from Maulana Tariq Jamil’s official Twitter account stated, “During the conversation on Prime Minister’s program “Ehsas Telethon,” the mention of lies and obscenity was meant to indicate the avoidance of these deadly diseases, it was not meant to offend any individual or institution.”
اگر مولانا طارق جمیل صاحب صحافی ہوتے تو بغیر ثبوت کےکچھ بھی کہہ سکتے تھے کیونکہ صحافی کچھ بھی کہہ سکتے ہیں ثبوت مانگو تو کہتے ہیں خفیہ زرائع بتائے نہیں جاتے— VEENA MALIK (@iVeenaKhan) April 25, 2020
پیمرا میں دبنگ بندہ چاہیے جو جھوٹی خبر پر پابندی کے ساتھ صحافیوں کی لتر پریڈ بھی کرے
