Maulana Tariq Jameel clarifies his remarks about women in a humble Twitter apology

Responding to his comments, PTI leader Shireen Mazari also apologized and clarified her stance.


Maulana Tariq Jameel has clarified his remarks about women in a humble Twitter apology. The popular preacher, last week, was called out for declaring immodest women as the cause of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

He met harsh criticism from certain segments of the society, who declared his comments as condescending towards women. PTI leaders Shireen Mazari and Maleeka Bokhari also denounced his statement, saying that blaming it on women further damages their position as they are already suffering in the society.

However, in an appreciable step, an account affiliated with Maulana has clarified the statement, saying that he did not mean to target any gender.

“Recently I made some comments that I wish to clarify. My aim was to point out that WE are all to blame for our current state,” Maulana Tariq Jameel said in the viral Twitter post.

Maulana Tariq Jameel said that his motive was to encourage people to think more on the spiritual side and not fall for worldly desires.

”I am the first to admit as I have taught over the years, that there is no excuse for making any hurtful comments about anyone or making anyone feel uncomfortable. For which I sincerely apologize to anyone who may be inadvertently hurt,” he wrote.

Responding to his statement, PTI leader and Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari appreciated his stance and also apologized for her remarks. She said that she is sorry if her comments came off hurtful.

”Thank you for the clarification. Really appreciate it. You have many followers & this will send a clear message to any who seek to misinterpret your words to target women. In the same spirit, even though my tweet on the issue of women being targeted did not mention you”, Mazari said.

  • I think this is a show of really good spirit from our beloved Maolana Tariq Jamil, reciprocated with similar spirit by Shereen Mazari.
    We should all try to analyze the sayings or writings of anyone in the true spirit of Islam. This is what is called for in in Islam.

  • شیری مزاری وہ بطخ کے سر والی ٹڈی بطخ بھی اب مولانا پہ تنقید کرے گی۔ فٹے منہ تیرے

  • Fahashi is a disease without gender, though as with most things it has a prominent face in terms of women’s appearance. Men do need to show exemplary conduct. Cant’d we say both these and accept they are right?

    We know that widespread fashashi are among the things that Allah has destroyed previous peoples over, so why is it so wrong to warn of this in the present age?
