As the entire world is in a state of fear or panic due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, when Maulana Tariq Jameel visited Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan and extended his hand for a handshake, he avoided handshake with the religious leader and put his hand on his heart as a sign of respect.
Seeing his gesture, Tariq Jameel also smiled and put his hand on his heart to greet the PM who then respectfully asked him to have a seat.
It is to be noted that Maulana Tariq Jameel was called on Imran Khan’s residence in Islamabad on this last month. Imran Khan had asked the religious leaders to help the government to spread awareness on preventive measures to save people from COVID-19.
