Tablighi Jamaat Covid-19 Case Divides the Internet
NEW DELHI: On Tuesday, the case of patients positive for the Corona virus from the international congregation was detected on the Internet. The incident elicited a sharp response from politicians, historians and activists. Hashtag NizamuddinMarkaz was the main trend in India on Tuesday, attracting almost 107k tweets.
Several AAP leaders took to Twitter and claimed that the congregation was at fault, as the blockade in Delhi had begun before the pan-Indian restrictions were announced. AAP MLA Atishi tweeted: The 'iztema' happened long before the dates mentioned in this statement, March 13-15. On the 13th, he issued an order prohibiting the gathering of more than 200 people. Why did Markaz not stop the event? Why is @ DelhiPolice not taking action when the police are at Markaz's side? Delhi police work under the central government.
BJP East MP Gautam Gambhir He blamed the organizers and members of the congregation. What did these people gathered in Nizamuddin think? Is it a joke that the whole country is under lock and key? The wrong action of any one of us can lead to a disaster of gigantic proportions! Listen to the government for the love of God!
Several people noted that the congregation occurred long before the curfew was imposed across the country. And some lamented the communal turn that was taking place in the incident. Around 3 p.m., former Jammu and Prime Minister Omar Abdullah He tweeted: Now #TablighiJamat will become a convenient excuse for some to denigrate Muslims everywhere as if we had created and spread #COVID around the world.
Historian S. lrfan Habib published: “#TablighiJamat in Nizamuddin did something stupid and criminal in organizing Ijtima. It is amazing that these Khamatis have not gotten the message or have deliberately ignored the crises that are going around the world.
Later he said: It would have been convenient to postpone the Jamat ijtima to avoid the consequences. However, their communalization is now even worse. Islamophobia overcomes all the fears of others.
Lawyer Prashant Bhushan tweeted the Tablighi Jamat press release, which said they had approached their local police station for help. Read the real facts about the greedy cases of Nizamuddin Markaz. There was an international conference when the closure was suddenly announced. They kept the authorities informed at all times and asked them to allow visitors to be escorted. Unfair to blame them, he tweeted around 12 p.m.
