Mufti Qavi was suspended from the Ruet-i-Hilal Committee as well as the National Ulema Mushaikh Council of Pakistan after the photographs went viral.
Both Mufti Qavi and Qandeel Baloch are blaming each other for requesting for the private meeting as the controversies are on the rise among the two with Qandeel even claiming that Mufti Qavi tried to kiss and hug her.
“[He tried to] kiss me and hug me. You know in showbiz, girls are sometimes bold so we are okay with it. I was laughing and telling him not to do it. He stopped then and said ‘I know you can’t phasaofy [trap] a girl in the first meeting. As our relationship develops, we will become more open with each other’,” Qandeel was quoted as saying in a report by the local newspaper, Dawn News.
She also added “He couldn’t control his emotions. He was very emotional and made many attempts to hug and kiss me. The sofa I was sitting on, he sat on it and tried to make out with me. Then he would stop when I asked him to stop. Then he’d try again. Then he started talking about romance. He told me he knows how to seduce a woman and said ‘You have to do this, start from the ear and then…’ Main ne bola wah Mufti sahib ko tau romance karna bhi ata hai [Wow, Mufti sahib knows how to romance].”
According to Qandeel, Mufti Qavi has a hidden character, alleging that “He was different in front of others than he was with me. He would put on an act around other people.”
“You may have heard of his fatwa, he said that contract nikkahs are jaez [allowed] and he has only one malka but has done nikkah 17 times. He said he had heard I was not very well off, and then said he earns money and has a lot of land in Multan and even gave me a business card with his various titles on it. I still have this business card,” she added.
However, Mufti Qavi rejected the allegations against him as rubbish and said “I have nothing to do with the ‘fahashi’ she’s talking about. She left satisfied with her respect and dignity in place. She said she would visit Multan on the second day of Eid and meet my mother.”
