Another video of purportedly showing Pakistani religious scholar Mufti Abdul Qavi went viral on social media in which he is seen dancing with a woman.
The video has become a subject of debate on the social media with people observing it’s not becoming of a scholar to indulge in such acts.
Mufti Qavi has been in such scandals in the past as well, especially when his viedo with late Qandeel Baloch and later Hareem Shah surfaced on the internet.
Mufti Abdul Qavi, a few months ago drew criticism from general public after he declared that consumption of alcohol permissible if it’s taken less than 40%.
The cleric during an interview said that if Tobacco was Halal for the clerics then all the drinks of today’s world are Halal too for ordinary Muslims. He said, “If any drink with even 100% alcohol is extracted from minerals, it is Halal in Islam.”
Mufti Qavi was one of the suspects in the 2016 murder case of social media personality Qandeel Baloch. The cleric was arrested in 2017 after a court rejected an extension to his pre-arrest bail. The police declared Qavi as a suspect in the case at the request of Qandeel’s father. However, he was granted bail later by a court in Multan.
