Muslim speaker Nouman Ali Khan is under fire after screenshots that allegedly show him "bribing, threatening and misbehaving" with different women surfaced online.
The screenshots, which were originally posted by Rabia Chaudry and have since been deleted, reveal conversations of an inappropriate nature.
Following Chaudry's post, Omer Mozaffar, a Muslim Chaplain at Loyola University of Chicago, ousted the Pakistani-American preacher for being a "hypocrite."
"I have been working on a case regarding my friend of twenty years, Nouman Ali Khan. He confessed inappropriate interactions with various women, violating agreed-upon bounds of Islamic law," Mozaffar wrote in a Facebook post.
"He also told lies to cover up those relationships, and filed threats of litigation against multiple parties to further hide his misconduct. I am calling on him to focus on repentance and reform," he added.
Within 24 hours of Mozaffar's post, Khan posted a direct response to Mozaffar's statement.
"He claims I’ve known him for twenty years. I’ve spoken to him in friendly ways no more than a couple of dozen times in that entire span ... To claim he’s my friend of 20 years to insinuate that he knows my personal life is really far from the truth," Khan wrote.
In the same post, Khan reiterated that all conversations in question took place "between consenting adults" and that they have been "distorted and manipulated way out of proportion and turned into something it isn't," he wrote.
"All such communications took place between consenting adults and there was nothing malicious or predatory about them. I fail to see how such interaction can render anyone a victim," he added.
When it comes to his personal life, Khan also shared details of his divorce.
"I find it demeaning to have to speak about my personal life. I feel at some level though I don’t have a choice. I have been divorced for nearly two years," he added.
Screenshots of the alleged conversations surfaced
Following the interactions in question, the hashtag #NAKScandal began trending on Twitter.
The hashtag saw many criticizing Khan, calling him a hypocrite and condemning his attempt to silence women with threats.
Others came to his defense.
