Gender equality demands to share pregnancy period too: Gulzar Azmi

Looks like someone has seriously lost his mind and skipped his biology classes too.

And it’s none other than Maulana, Gulzar Azmi, who heads the Legal Aid Committee of Jamiat Ulama Maharashtra and is also the member of the state’s Minority Commission.

Here’s what he said-

Few days ago, a committee that was formed by the Ministry of Minority Affairs to draft the Haj Policy for 2018-22, among other things, proposed that women above 45 years of age should be allowed to travel to Makkah and perform Haj without a Mahram.

A Mahram in Islam is a male relative by blood.

The committee headed by former secretary Afzal Amanullah which submitted its report to Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi recommended that if women above 45 years of age are travelling in a group of 4-5, they should be allowed to perform Hajj.

Islam makes it mandatory for women to accompany a Mahram if they are travelling to Makkah to perform Hajj. But there are certain relaxations in case of women above 45 years of age.

Soon after his statement, he became a victim to trolls. Here are some of the hilarious responses he got:

Thanks Twitteratis for serving Maulana with what he deserves..!!
