According to me it doesn’t work because most of these vices are commited in private and people do not care much weather its embarasing or not for as long as nobody sees them in the act. The play was critisized because it potrayed religion in bad light and as a tool that people use to manipulate others. Their attacks were justified to some extent because religion is expected to be respected as the epitome of morals and virtues but on the other hand it’s also true that religion has been used and abused to disenfranchise other people.
In the first scene, Madam Pernelle sounds very convincing and sure of what she is saying while the rest of the characters appear to be full of malice and witch hunt against Tartuffe. The other characters seem to harbour some negative feelings towards Tartuffe. Tartuffe comes through as a very humble and innocent servant of the house.
Madam Parnelle is very critical of everyone in the family because of their persived resentment towards Tartuffe. She argues that the rest are envious of tartufe’s good virtures since he reminds them of their ills and moral flaws. Parnelle refers to Damis and Dorine as dunce and secrative respectively while Cleante is too worldly, Elmire is accused of being a spendthrift. Dorine accuses her grand mother of being jealosy since the world is about to drop her off.

Many of the characters of this scathing social commentary – one of many such incisive plays penned by Moliere – are one-dimensional, allowing each persona to highlight one aspect of the central dilemma.

The play caused much controversy in the 17th century, mainly because religion was a very sensitive issue, but the aim of Moliere was to show that there are those that manipulate religion to achieve certain goals.

The French context was characterized by a strict sense of absolutism that permeated all levels of French society; to be sure, this absolutism was a governing philosophy from the top-down. It reached all the way from King Louis the XIV to elder males in smaller family units.
Madame Pernelle says;
Madame Pernelle criticizes talk but she conveniently forgets that Tartuffe talks a lot by offering his opinions on social decorum for others. If Madame Pernelle really wants to follow Tartuffe's suggestions, then she should do the same and avoid talking and gossiping about others like Orante and Tartuffe.
We got used to treat evil even with respect, because we often feel helpless before it. If not to take religion into account, comedy and satire is the only way to make people think about their actions as we do not like to be ashamed and laughed at.
