Special Representative of the Prime Minister on Religious Harmony Maulana Tahir Ashrafi has criticised advertisements featuring women. “Despite having so many good looking men in the country, advertisers still hire women to represent their brands.”

Tahir, while addressing a press conference at the Punjab Institute of Quran and Seerat Studies, said that he is against the practice of women being “unnecessarily featured in advertisements”.

Talking about the strategy of curbing Islamophobia, Tahir Ashrafi said, “For this purpose, the government has started reaching out to different Islamic scholars across the globe.”


“The ulema have a role to play in eradicating obscenity, terrorism, and extremism from the country,” said Maulana Tahir Ashrafi  while talking about the increase in sexual crimes.
