Twitter Calls Out Tariq Jameel For Sexualising Women In Viral Video
In a video of a sermon that has gone viral on social media, preacher and Islamic scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel openly objectifies and sexualises women to an audience of hundreds of men. While explaining the concept of hoors in Islam, he says that the men who enter paradise will be greeted by 70 virgin women, hoors, who will be there to serve them as a reward from Allah.
He further goes on to describe those virgins as dressed in multiple outfits and a new makeup look with each outfit and a different fragrance. He also says that the said virgin will not be wearing any undergarments and the men will be able to see her body through the hundred dresses that she’s wearing.
The first sight at that hoor will also leave the man dumbfounded, that his eyes will burst out open.
Twitter has reacted to the video and called Tariq Jameel out for his blatant objectification and heightened sexualisation of women in the context of Islam.
حوروں بارے پہلے بھی سنتے آئے ہیں ہم لیکن جو تصویر کشی مولانا طارق جمیل نے کی ہے اسکے بعد آپ ٹیکے والی حوریں بھول جائیں گے pic.twitter.com/uDdKkOlWuc

i’m gonna puke…..maulana tariq jameel on hoors & how their clothes are going to be see through…. makes sense why religion itself objectifies women & strips them away of their independence. the concept of hoors is disgusting. offering men infidelity & sex to muslim incels…

The women on Twitter who deal with harassment on a daily basis were of course not pleased with the religious scholar talking about their bodies in a light that propagates the rape culture.
Aankhain phat jaen gee aur 40 saal tak us larki ko dekhta rahay ga. I pray he would never reach that woman (hoor) even after 40 yrs. Objectification & sexualisation of women bodies always work for different industries & clearly in Jannat too according TJ. pic.twitter.com/Mo9BiHCuzE
