ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s leading which-doctor Moeed Pirzada lauded Tariq Jamil as the Marilyn Monroe of the Muslim world. The statement comes in the aftermath of the Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Telethon to raise funds to fight Covid-19, wherein Jamil made a few ‘bold’ statements, while simultaneously remaining ‘bowed’, according to Pirzada.
Taking to Twitter, Pirzada appreciated Jamil and said that the message sent during PM’s telethon can be a ‘turning point’ for the country and the Muslim world.
“Maulana Tariq Jameel’s bold but bowed message, asking Muslims to pray from homes in Ramadan, but fittingly condemning shameless women, in PM Imran Khan’s telethon, was a turning moment in Pakistan’s history – a bit of Marilyn Monroe moment when he she boldly let her dress fly, but also bowed down to cater to conservatism. Well Done Maulana!” he tweeted.
Pirzada received backlash for his tweet from many quarters, prompting him to issue an explanation.
“By the Muslim world’s Marilyn Monroe I meant that Maulana Tariq Jameel is an icon, who is bold, beautiful but bowed. His collaboration of the bold with the bowed can best be explained by his condemnation of shameless women, while at the same time describing hoors as a master in erotica,” the which-doctor said while talking to The Dependent.
