Maulana Tariq Jameel praises Imran Khan and social media is having none of it
A video of renowned religious scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel went viral on social media in which he praised Prime Minister Imran Khan for being the first and only leader who presented his vision of turning Pakistan into riyaasat-e-Madina.
مولانا صاحب کی بہت اچھی عادت ہے ہر حکمران کو خوش رکھتے ہیں۔مدینے کی ریاست کی خواہش والا کب خود کو پیش کر رہا ہے سزا کے لیے مولانا صاحب۔منافقت کی حد ہے pic.twitter.com/914ihfbzNk

In the 4 minute video, Tariq Jameel appreciated PM Khan’s positive vision of building hospitals and helping the needy which other leaders lacked.
This video came in just four days after PM Khan and the religious scholar had met in Islamabad at the PM’s official residence.
However, social media saw Maulana sahab’s remarks as part of a political cum diplomatic cover.
Here are some interesting reactions:
“We cannot side with a liar and an ‘adulterer’ person….”

Previously, Maulana Jameel was being criticized for his comments on politicians and taking sides with Mian Nawaz Sharif.
Some people were simply disappointed!!!
What a disappointment this guy has turned out to be.

Other reactions came out as messages for the religious scholar to “stay away from politics”.

But then there was also some mention of conspiracy against Maulana Sahab that he is trying to make up for his offensive statements against Imran Khan.
Maulana sb had said something a little unpleasant and sarcastic on stage in IK presence last time. So this is Maulana paying the price and repenting his folly. He's been put in his place, by ? I can only be sorry for whatever he may have suffered.

Earlier last week, the religious scholar had been invited as a guest speaker at a symposium named “Call for Action” to speak on population control.
Well according to some, the awkward speech by the religious scholar is the reason why this video came in…. kind of a praise and apology??
Well, we hope this clears any misunderstandings between the two. After all, Maula Sahab surely has a way with words.
