Junaid Jamshed in hot water again over yet another sexist and seemingly demeaning and dismissive remark against women.

The ex Pakistan pop group Vital Signs singer-turned-holy man-turned fashion designer-turned TV preacher, Junaid Jamshed, made another blunder as he appeared on a television show and stated that "God dislikes that any woman should be named [in the Quran]."

Cue furore, the internet blew up over the remark, calling it out for being misogynistic, irresponsible and just plain wrong, with many correcting him and pointing out that women are not referred to in the first name as the ultimate sign of respect.

Junaid Jamshed was in the spotlight last year when he was accused of making blasphemous remarks in one of his televised sermons. On another occasion he was publically slammed for suggesting that the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) wife Hazrat Aisha (RA) lied to him about feeling ill and mocked her in a Youtube video.

This time, it appears that he felt he had to correct his mistake quickly, as he took to his Facebook page and issued a 'clarification. '

In the carefully edited video, he explains that he did not intend to offend or belittle women at all. He cites Quranic verses that relate the high stature of women.

However, he closes with the sexist remark: "A woman is a diamond. Diamonds are meant to be hidden."

As Social media exploded over his statements, with several prominent figures jumping in. Many people questioned the hypocrisy of Jamshed putting women down despite his commercial designer-wear label branded with his name, mainly targeted at women.

Many were simply astounded by the sexism of the statement, and made their feelings known.Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 14.11.30 (800x455)MAIN Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 14.16.36 (685x331)Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 14.07.43 (800x233)Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 14.08.40 (800x165)Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 14.09.09 (800x153)Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 14.09.40 (800x157)
