Anwar Maqsood Fires Back at Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman for Derogatory Remarks Against Women [Video]

He used the 15th International Urdu Conference for his clap back.

The Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) President and JUI-F, Chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman, raised a storm on social media for his objectionable remarks against PTI supporters in his speech at Shikarpur last month. Renowned writer Anwar Maqsood gave him a befitting response to his disparaging remarks against PTI’s women workers at the closing session of the 15th International Urdu Conference.

Speaking in Urdu, he remarked,

Son, you are talking about the Day of Judgment. Sir, it’s already here. Do you what its signs are? When bad people start ruling over good people, when lies are considered to be the truth, when courts start to wait for its verdicts to come from other departments, when the religious persons (maulanas) start using foul language for the mothers and daughters of the nation as if they had no mother but two fathers.

Here is the video:

Anwar Maqsood added that the country’s poor ask the rulers not to defame it by begging in its name.

The 15th International Urdu Conference concluded at Pakistan Arts Council in Karachi. Commissioner Karachi, M Iqbal Memon; Secretary Arts Council, Ejaz Farooqi; members of the governing body, poets, writers, and other prominent personalities from different walks of life also attended the event.

After the PDM President’s speech, many PTI leaders and several journalists condemned the remarks made by the JUI-F Chief. Later on, PTI Punjab President, Dr. Yasmin Rashid, announced that a case would be lodged against Maulana Fazlur Rehman for his ‘derogatory’ remarks.

She also remarked that “He [Fazlur Rahman] does not deserve to be called Maulana”.

PTI leader and former Minister for Climate Change, Zartaj Gul Wazir, tweeted,

This man is a PERVERT with a decrepit filthy mindset!
His Western masters and benefactors must realise he’s at the moment making things up from his gutter mind, abusing females.
Not a face of Islam, Fazlur Rehman is actually an EMBODIMENT OF PERVERSION.
