Religious scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel has denied taking Rs 1 million in exchange for conducting nikkah. According to the details, in a tweet on the microblogging website Twitter, Maulana Tariq Jameel said that with the help of Allah, I have traveled to six continents for the last 45 years to preach the religion. The obstacle to our progress is our moral inferiority.
To people who “made false accusations”, the famous religious scholar said the he has conducted thousands of nikkahs of girls and boys for the sake of Allah. Maulana said that he has a long standing friendship with Sheikh Mahmood Sahib.
The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) had swung into action after pictures and videos from the lavish wedding went viral over the internet.
According to the notice, the wedding celebrations were going on from November 5 to 7 in which Rosa Blanca Club Lahore provided catering, KSC Concept provided event planning and Irfan Ahsan provided photography services.
While the industrialist and his family were being criticized for having such a luxurious marriage, on the other hand, Maulana Tariq Jameel was also being targeted for allegedly taking Rs 1 million for the nikkah.
Social media users are of opinion that Maulana Sahib teaches simplicity and teaches Islam but he neither refused to attend the lavish wedding nor did he teach anyone there about simplicity and austerity but instead took Rs 10 lakh. However, now Maulana Tariq Jameel has denied the allegations.
