Maulana Tariq Jameel under criticism as a video of him attending a lavish wedding event goes viral
More than 200 crore rupees were spent on the wedding.
People have been criticizing religious scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel after it emerged that he allegedly received a million rupees for making dua at a lavish wedding ceremony.
Recently, the daughter and son of Master Tiles and Jalal & Sons respectively, tied the knot, and the elite Pakistani family wedding became the talk of the town.
The cleric was among the public figures invited to the ceremony. The wedding ceremony also featured dances from foreign artists, but Tariq Jameel’s participation in the extravagant wedding became the event’s highlight.
Netizens took a strong exception to Jameel’s participation in the wedding, saying that he preaches modesty and humbleness while endorsing an unnecessary lavish wedding. Many people criticized the scholar over his “hypocritical” stance regarding the “message of simplicity in Islam.”
So this crass and vulgar wedding display said to have costed Rs 200 crores was graced by many performers including award winning actor Maulana Tariq Jameel who received Rs 1 million as “nazrana” and preached stirringly on the importance of simplicity. Pass the sick bag! 🤢 pic.twitter.com/LVCL49fJ8H

I can't believe a wedding with Russian Dancers happened which also featured a speech from Maulana Tariq Jameel and macarons in a soup spoon, all in the middle of a pandemic. https://t.co/HdNQB2JUI9

Our dilemma is that we are stranded between QTV and MTV.
BTW, a recent big fat wedding had Maulana Tariq Jameel and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan as guests.

Maulana Tariq Jameel is a con man who earns billions by preaching Islam but he himself participates in events which are totally against islamic values. Why don’t you practice what you preach Moulana? Mullah can do anything for money. Anything https://t.co/fPhgUnThYy

I respect Maulana Tariq Jameel sb but he has to draw a line. He may have good intention but it also gives wrong message.
