After the meetup this is what he said,

“In a Mosque/Madrasa in Islamabad, where hundreds of bearded men and hijabi women were gathered, I, an actor, a person from media, shared and discussed religious matters. We agreed and disagreed and had a great time yet none of these “Maulvis” branded me a hypocrite for talking about religion while being an actor, no one called me a Miraasi, nobody thought my input was any less than theirs.”

He further said,

“I was shown utmost love and respect and they valued my input on Islam. To those who bash Maulvis all the time, maybe sometimes we can learn a lot about tolerance from these'”Maulvis’.”
