‘Hypocrisy’: Tariq Jameel Under Fire For Attending Extravagant Wedding
Religious scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel is being criticised on social media after it emerged that he allegedly received a million rupees for making dua at a lavish wedding ceremony on which more than 200 crore rupees were spent. The son and daughter of two companies Jalal Sons and Master Tiles tied the knot recently and their wedding festivities have been the talk of the town. Tariq Jameel was among the public figures invited to the ceremony. The wedding ceremony also featured dances from foreign dancers, but Tariq Jameel’s participation in the extravagant ceremony became the highlight of the event. Twitter users took strong exception to Jameel’s participation in the wedding saying that he preaches modesty and humbleness while he himself endorsed an unnecessary lavish wedding. Many people criticized Jameel over his “hypocritical” stance regarding the “message of simplicity in Islam”.
So this crass and vulgar wedding display said to have costed Rs 200 crores was graced by many performers including award winning actor Maulana Tariq Jameel who received Rs 1 million as “nazrana” and preached stirringly on the importance of simplicity. Pass the sick bag! 🤢 pic.twitter.com/LVCL49fJ8H

Our dilemma is that we are stranded between QTV and MTV.
BTW, a recent big fat wedding had Maulana Tariq Jameel and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan as guests.

Maulana Tariq Jameel is a con man who earns billions by preaching Islam but he himself participates in events which are totally against islamic values. Why don't you practice what you preach Moulana? Mullah can do anything for money. Anything https://t.co/fPhgUnThYy

I respect Maulana Tariq Jameel sb but he has to draw a line. He may have good intention but it also gives wrong message.

Yesterday at a marriage ceremony in Gujranwala, Tariq Jameel delievered a sermon in which he mainly described the simplicity of Muhammad (PBUH) and his Sahabas and charged one million PKR for the discourse.
What an actor👏#tariqjamil
