Maulana Tariq Jameel is the eminent scholar of Pakistan. Recently, liberals bashed him for linking women with the COVID-19 pandemic. Following this, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), an independent organization expressed its distress against the Maulana.
Yesterday, the Maulana during PM Imran Khan Ehsas Telethon gave a talk and prayed for the whole world. In the talk, Maulana narrated a Hadith and said do these four things. The four things he described: don’t speak a lie, do not betray, increase morality (become modest) and eat and obtain lawful money and goods. After that Maulana prayed.

However, when Maulana Tariq Jame talked about modesty he talked about short clothes and dance of women, which is against Islam. He said that immodesty was rampant in the nation of ‘LUUT’ on which Allah send five punishments. Therefore, immodesty (Behayi) is one of the reasons which brought the trial of Allah upon us. Furthermore, he said, we do not have the above four things this is why we are facing such lethal conditions– Cornavirus pandemic.
Thereafter, a huge debate stirred on social media. Maulana’s speech irked several liberals and media persons.
Consequently, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) disparaged Maulana. The commission in a tweet said, “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.”

People on social media are supporting Maulana against the charges of HRCP and Liberals
He clearly stated ” behayi ” , it includes , molestation , harassment , porn , rape ( much more directed towards men) etc but I am failing to apprehend, why some petty minds look at this , as a serious threat towards their clothing !! #tariqjamil

As if anyone cares about HRCP? A department which could not get justice for many victims of rape, murder etc has no right to blame a person who is loved by every sect of Pakistan.
