What happened in Nizamuddin is regrettable, but attacking a community is unacceptable: YS Jagan Mohan Reddy
AMRAVATI: Calling the congregation in New Delhi last month for a spiritual event, Andhra Pradesh On Saturday, the Prime Minister asked people not to give him a religious color and not to see it as a crime either.
In a recorded video message, the chief commented that such things could have happened even at other religious events.
It is unfortunate that the disease has spread from the congregation in which several spiritual delegates from some foreign countries also participated. Some of those foreigners had and were passed on to our people.
But we should not attribute it (the spread of the disease) to any religion or breed and treat those people as deliberate criminals. No one should view them as having committed a crime, Jagan said in his eight-minute message.
We have spiritual leaders such as Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (Art of Living), Jaggi Vasudev (Isha Foundation), Mata Amritanandamayi, Paul Dinakaran or John Wesley . They have thousands upon thousands of followers in India and abroad and could participate in their events. Such things could have happened at such meetings, too, he noted.
Jagan said such incidents should only be viewed as unfortunate and unintended and attributed to one religion.
Efforts to project them in that light were unfortunate and would not serve to convey a message that we are all one.
The prime minister said that coronavirus victims should be compassionate and not distanced.
The coronavirus has no religion or medicine. It has no discrimination between rich and poor. It also has no differentiation between countries. In this battle, our enemy is the invisible virus called the crown, he noted.
Referring to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi 's call to all India ns to light lamps for nine minutes at 9 pm on April 5, the chief minister said the lights should convey the message "we are one" without any borders of breed , religion or region.
