Below the Belt Comments: Maulana Tariq Jamil’s Nara Scandal @ Rs550 drawstrings was fake news

Huge comments flow or viral as Virus spread on Rs 550 Nara @ MTJ appeared hoax only

The religious scholar turned businessman Maulana Tariq Jamil’s fashion brand MTJ has recently cleared the confusion over the price of a mere Nara or drawstrings as it isn’t selling Rs550 naras.

Twitter has been taken by storm and the discussion soon became questionable as is the ‘Nara gate’ even worth discussing?

Recently, Maulana Tariq Jamil’s launched his flagship store in Karachi for his namesake brand MTJ and since then there’s been controversy brewing. On the ‘Nara gate’, his representatives had to issue a statement to clarify that they aren’t selling Naaras or drawstrings for shalwars for Rs550.

A user shared the ‘vital’ clarification on Twitter and it was also posted on MTJ’s Instagram page.

“It has come to our notice that MTJ-Tariq Jamil is being accused of selling drawstrings (Nara) for Rs550 apiece. We would like to clarify that the news is fake. We do not manufacture drawstrings (Nara) and our stores and website have never placed any such article for sale. Please beware of spreading false news and help us report those who are involved in this malpractice.”

It read.

The statement came after a user on Twitter circulated false information about the brand keeping high-profit margins and falling prey to hypocrisy and capitalism while its owner was often heard mocking traders for doing the same.

However, if anything, this gave way to some more trolling, with some finding humour in the ‘Nara controversy’.

Many were also furious and offended that a religious scholar was being slandered and jumped to defend him.

One user also highlighted how Pakistan is the only country where one can witness scandals over things like ‘Nara’.
