Some people are criticizing Maulana Jamil for launching his brand and that too a clothing one. However, TV anchor, Iqrar ul Hassan, sees no issue in it.
He has defended Jamil’s decision of launching a clothing brand by saying, “It’s in the news that Maulana Tariq Jamil or his son has started a clothing brand. Trade is also Sunnah and there is no problem in it according to Shariah.”
“I offer my heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to them and request the critics to come up with a logical or shar’i argument or remain silent,” added Hassan.
