Blame The Dancing Women

A revered Pakistani televangelist has sparked a fierce backlash from rights activists for saying that the coronavirus pandemic is God’s wrath upon people because of immodest women.

Maulana Tariq Jameel, a senior member of Tablighi Jamaat (an Islamic missionary movement), made the controversial remarks in the presence of Prime Minister Imran Khan during a live telethon on the twenty-fourth of April to raise funds for people affected by the ongoing lockdown.

While offering prayers, the sixty-seven-year-old cleric condemned women for dancing and dressing indecently, claiming these immoral actions have brought the Almighty’s wrath upon the country.
