His comments have gone viral, igniting a storm of reactions online!

On the show, Sahil Adeem made a bold assertion, saying, “Take a sample of 100 women; 95 of them will be ignorant and not know anything. This is reality.” The statement was made during a discussion about human rights and women’s rights, where Adeem was asked about the role of mosques in mobilizing women for social change.

Adeem further explained his viewpoint by saying, “These women are aware of dance, cooking, and makeup but have no awareness of Islam.” He questioned how mosques could mobilize women for rights when they lacked basic religious knowledge.

A participant on the show the asked Adeem to apologize for his anti-women remarks

A female audience member demanded apology and challenged called out Adeem. She asked him to provide Quranic evidence where the term jahil (ignorant) is used for those who lack knowledge of certain things. Adeem began quoting Arabic verses without translating them, which led to a heated exchange with the audience member.

Sahil Adeem justified calling 95% of Pakistani women jahil by saying they don’t know the meaning of “Taghoot”

In the heated exchange, Adeem said, “Today, you learned about taghoot, the biggest sin in Islam.” He was then reminded by the woman that the discussion was about women’s rights, not theological concepts. Despite this, Adeem continued to stand by his statement, advising her to take a sample and conduct the test for herself.

The confrontation reached a boiling point when Adeem made a controversial remark, saying, “I ask for forgiveness because my daughter is ignorant. It is my fault that my daughter is ignorant”, he said while pointing at the girl in the audience. This comment was met with backlash, as many felt it was an attempt to deflect from the main issue of his original statement.
