JUI wants a ban on Muslim dating app Muzz Match, demands removal of billboards

Jammat-e-Islami has asked authorities to ban the Muslim dating application, Muzz Match.

In a statement to the Sindh authorities, Jammat-e-Islami demanded that they not only impose a ban on the app, which currently has 400,00 active users, but also remove its billboards from major cities.

Muzz Match CEO’s response

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Muzz Match, Shahzad Younas replied to the matter, saying that he is a practicing Muslim in the United Kingdom. He built the application almost a decade ago to help people overcome the difficulty in finding a compatible partner.

Younas added that their functionality is not like other apps of similar nature, Tinder etc., and discourages casual relationships.

”We are proud to ban and block any member that is reported for not being serious or having ill intentions and having 20-strong all female community team whose entire role is to keep our app safe and respectful,” the CEO clarified.

Muzz Match automatically detects use of foul language, and removes it. The app also has a ‘wali’ or chaperone feature that allows members to keep their parents informed about the conversation they’re having with matches.

Privacy is a big priority of the application, as men and women can choose their photos to be completely private, and share them with concerned parties only. Muzz Match has reportedly had 4,000 successful marriages.

The application was created by an ex-Morgan Stanley banker Shahzad Younas. It is targeted specifically at Muslims, and finding partners for marriage. The application is currently operating in almost every country, and is most popular in Canda, the UK and the US. It has a ‘sophisticated’ algorithm, which takes into consideration multiple factors.

As a practicing Muslim himself,  Shahzad said he had a thorough ‘understanding,’ of the audience. He was also aware that Muslims don’t date, they marry, which led him to creating the app.
