Looks like we’re going to continue reading (and writing) about Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain’s engagement which happened at the Lux Style Awards while thousands of people were watching.
While the country appears to be divided over the proposal, Hamza Ali Abbasi stepped in to defend the couple and asked the public not to bash them for their actions, supporting his argument with verses from the Quran. And now Hamza has invited the wrath of other members of the industry who are criticising him for quoting the Quran.
Feroze Khan, who took the award for Best Actor Viewers Choice for Khaani, took a jibe at Hamza for his comments and asked him to avoid bringing “Islam, Allah and Rusool (SAW)” into such topics of conversation.
He later also added that “we are no one to judge anyone.”
Earlier Veena Malik had criticised Hamza’s statement on Yasir and Iqra’s engagement and had accused him of ‘defending kissing before nikkah. In a lenghty note posted to Twitter, she had said that she had a lot of respect for Hamza but “then these tweets come up.” She said that while she agrees that Yasir and Iqra are doing the right thing by getting married but “how the proposal ended wasn’t appropriate as the act was utterly uncultured.”
