That, however, didn't stop superstar Ali Zafar from grilling Junaid -- and that too publicly. Giving Junaid some benefit of the doubt, Ali initiated a conversation on Twitter, asking if the former believes women are inferior to men.

To further clarify Junaid's stance, Ali asked him about his opinion on the role of women, whether or not it's OK for them to get of the house, work or drive a vehicle:

In response to which Ali offered the singer-turned-scholar to jam together sometime in order to show mutual respect to women:
