Maulana Tariq Jameel clarifies remarks made during Ehsaas Telethon

Maulana Tariq Jameel on Tuesday took to Twitter to 'clarify' the remarks he made during the Ehsaas Telethon and apologised to those 'inadvertently hurt' by his statement.

Taking to Twitter, the Islamic scholar said: “My aim was to point out that we are all to blame for our current state. It was meant to be a general remark not targeting any specific men, women, persons or gender, but as a reminder to get closer to what Allah teaches us.”

He clarified that he was just reminding us of the spiritual and apologizing to “anyone who may have been hurt accidentally.”

Earlier, Maulana Tariq Jameel was invited to the Ehsaas Telethon to initiate a collective prayer for the general public and also to guide people on how to take precautionary measures amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Maulana had stirred a storm among journalists and members of the civil society by calling media houses around the world, including Pakistan, “liars” and said the organisations “needed to be more truthful”.
