Everyone knows that Coronavirus does not have any social, political or religious boundaries and it had spread across the globe right from Prince Charles to the common man in India, but some of the leading the Indian news channels seem to be busy giving it religious colour in India.
India has launched a search operation to identify the Tablighi Jamaat people who attended the congregation at Delhi’s Markaz Nizamuddin, and that is a good move to stop the spread of coronavirus further but do they also need to get punished?
According to the reports, Nine Tablighi attendees identified in Goa. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, who had a day before said he had no information on those who attended the congregation, Wednesday said: “the outfit has damaged India”. All the nine persons have been found to have attended the Tablighi Jamaat congregation at its headquarters in Delhi’s Markaz Nizamuddin.
According to the government, the nine persons had reached Goa on March 11 and were put in quarantine after the news unfolded of many who attended having tested COVID-19 positive in other states.
Sawant has sought “severe punishment” for those who attended the Delhi congregation. “The Tablighi Jamaat has damaged the country, according to the media reports that I have seen. They have put the country in trouble with the manner in which they allowed (COVID-19) to spread,” Sawant said in a press meet.
“Police said they have come from Gujarat and Kerala. This is dangerous. We have to be careful about those from Tabligh. It is important to know which centres they have come from. I will source information now,” Sawant said. “Jamaat members should be punished according to me,” he added.
