These Pakistani celebs have come forward to support Maulana Tariq Jameel

KARACHI - Maulana Tariq Jameel is considered one of Pakistan's most admired and respected  Islamic scholars for spreading the message for peace, unity and harmony.

His latest comments about the media created controversy after he appeared on the Ehsaas Telethon at the end to make dua in light of the coronavirus situation. Several 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.”

“I sincerely apologize if my conversation has offended any individual or department,” wrote Maulana Sahab in another tweet apologizing to everyone.

Following the cleric’s apology, Pakistani former actor Hamza Ali Abbasi and many other celebrities including Veena Malik, Muneeb butt, Feroze Khan, Dua Khan came out supporting Maulana on social media.
