Council of Islamic Ideology bans depiction of ‘Hoors’ after viral Multan video


The Council of Islamic Ideology (CCI) has condemned the practice of exhibiting women as “hoors,” calling it “wrong in light of Islamic teachings.”

According to videos that went viral on social media, a woman was shown as a “hoor” (heavenly figure) during a procession on the 12th Rabiul Awal.

Based on their understanding, the body slammed the display of women as ‘hoors’. CII even dubbed this completely ‘inappropriate in light of Islamic teachings‘.

The CII expressed its reservations at a meeting where members agreed that performing naat, marsiya, and qaseeda as songs was against Islamic beliefs.

In his motion, Seemabia Tahir stated that the incident occurred in Multan and described it as a “well-thought-out controversy.”
