Hamza Ali Abbasi is back with another head-scratching post on Facebook. This time around, the Pyaare Afzal actor took to the social networking website to draw a comparison between ‘maulvis’ and ‘liberals.’

His conclusion: Maulvis are better than “so-called progressive liberal modern class”. Why, you may ask? Apparently because ‘maulvis’ don’t judge him for being an actor who likes to discuss religion.

The social media sensation, who was earlier condemned for preaching morality and religion post his item number in Jawani Phir Nahi Ani, started off by recalling he has been ‘mocked’ numerous times by liberals. “Many among the tolerant, the modern and liberal Pakistanis have often mocked me for talking about religion, against item numbers and yet being present at award shows,” he wrote.

He then went on to hold the so-called liberals responsible for forcing people to pick sides. “They force you to take one side, as if you have to be a maulvi to even mention religion.”

“However, I have never experienced such insecurity and mockery when I visit any mosque or madrassa. Never has a maulvi ever said to me that “tum actor ho, masjid mein kiya ker rahay ho“. I have seen more open minds & tolerance in those bearded men and hijabi women than in the so called progressive liberal modern class,” he added.
