Bilal Maqsood feels religious content shouldn’t be monetized on YouTube
Ever tried peacefully zoning out to your favorite YouTube content only to be bothered by a random advertisement?
Bilal Maqsood recently took to Instagram to voice his concern regarding religious content on YouTube and the ways in which it is interrupted by profit-making organizations for marketing purposes which he finds distasteful.
“Surahs and Duas on YouTube should not be monetized,” said the Strings musician. “Imagine listening to Surah-e-Rehman and it is interrupted in the middle by a lawn or a cooking oil ad, it’s highly disrespectful.”
While most fans were quick to agree to say they faced the same turmoil, some criticized the Mera Bichra Yar singer, saying the adverts help give monetary return to those who have made the effort of sharing some good with the world.
