The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has criticised Maulana Tariq Jameel for his remarks against women, calling them ‘immodest’, on national television.

The HRCP said clerics being allowed to air such views on national television leads to more misogyny and discrimination against women.

The statement said, “HRCP is appalled at Maulana Tariq Jamil‘s recent statement inexplicably correlating women’s ‘modesty’ to the Covid-19 pandemic. Such blatant objectification is unacceptable and, when aired on public television, only compounds the misogyny entrenched in society”.
