Taking to social media, the designer expressed her dismay with the younger generation, stating, “It saddens me to see the hate and misconceptions our younger generation has about Islam.”
She went on to add, “All the comments I see are from people who know nothing about the true essence of Islam and have never properly studied the Quran.”
Maria B emphasized that LGBTQ issues should not be treated lightly. She pointed out that the Federal Shariat Court had spent two years deliberating on the Transgender Act before determining which aspects were considered un-Islamic.
