VIDEO: Mufti Muneeb and Fawad Ch faceoff again as he accuses religious clergy for the spread of Coronavirus
Despite an advised ban on religious gatherings to contain the spread of COVID-19, religious clergy opposes
After a discussion between The Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) and the government, it was decided that mosques in Pakistan will remain open. Health experts advised banning congregational prayers to contain the outbreak of COVID-19. However, following a lengthy debate, it was decided that mosques will remain open and the ‘number of people praying would instead be limited’.
Despite the fact that the majority of the recent patients are asymptomatic (showing no symptoms of the disease) and there is a high risk of them being hidden carriers of the virus, the decision to keep mosques open does not seem very rational.
Minister of Science and Technology Fawad Ch criticized the religious clergy for their role during the COVID-19 pandemic. He said that the irresponsibility of the religious circles led to the spread of coronavirus in Pakistan.
Fawad added that illiterate and uneducated people should not be called scholars and Pakistan should respect those who are truly educated and recognize the sensitivity of the matter.
رجعت پسند مذہبی طبقے کی جہالت کی وجہ سے کرونا کی وباء پاکستان میں پھیلی اب ہمیں کہتے ہیں اللہ کا عذاب ہے توبہ کریں، اللہ کا عذاب جہالت ہے جو ان لوگوں کی صورت میں ہم پر مسلط ہے، علماء جو علم اور عقل رکھتے ہیں اللہ کی نعمت ہیں ان کی قدر کریں لیکن جہلاء کو عالم کا درجہ دیناتباہی ہے

Chairman of Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman, responding to Fawad’s comments, said that the minister is blaming the religious clergy to satisfy his ‘political shortcomings’. He further said that Ch Fawad is not worth his response.
This is not the first time we have seen Mufti Muneeb and Fawad Ch indulging in a bitter difference of opinion. Earlier, Fawad launched the website, pakmoonsighting.pk, followed by an application “to halt the moonsighting controversy”. The minister took the step to eliminate the disagreement that gets in the way of the country’s religious festivals every year.
Yeh Jahil so called ulmaa hi iss deen ki tabahi k zimm e daar hain, yeh madarchodd chand dekhney k bhi Karoron letey hain aor phhir inn ko izzat hi chahiye, inn ko littar parnay chahiyain inn ko corona k mareezon k sath jail main daala jaey
Muneeb ur rehman over react kr rha hy.
Fawad chodry ne jahil ulma ki baat ki.
Mufti muneeb chore ki darhi me tinka wali baat sabit kr rha hy.
Fawad Chaudhry is right- Limit the namaze make no sense- How do u know who is the carrier? Maulana Muneeb please ab retire ho jayai Jaan chor dain Reut e Hilal ki- Hum NASA Calender daik kr Roza Eid kr lain gay-Wasay Maulana hum kaisay yaqeen krain aap ny Chand sahi daika hai.
Ch Fawad is right. The clergy needs the Masjid open for Chanda, they don’t care about the Worshippers and their health.
All mosques should be under govt control and there should be imams only appointed by govt through a definite criteria. All other illegal mosques should be closed and non compliance should be dealt with strict measures…
Watched this show. Rewind it and see. Crook anchor told the half toweet ( رجعت پسند مذہبی طبقے کی جہالت کی وجہ ) to Mufti Muneeb. This clever and crook anchor did not told ( علماء جو علم اور عقل رکھتے ہیں اللہ کی نعمت ہیں ان کی قدر کریں لیکن جہلاء کو عالم کا درجہ دیناتباہی ہے ) to Mufti Muneeb. “Harami Media – Yes “
