Tablighi Jamaat members abuse and spit on doctors and Staff at quarantined centre in Delhi
New Delhi: Demanding strict action against Tablighi Jamaat for spreading Corona virus in the country and repeatedly violating the the law of the land, the Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM), a premier organisation of Indian Muslims termed the misdeeds of Jamaat as the murder of the Constitution of Bharat and also insult of Islam and humanity. In a statement, released on April 7, MRM national convener Mohd Afzal condemned the anti-Islam and anti-humanity actions of the Jamat leaders. “When the entire country was responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call on April 5 night by lighting lamps with a firm resolve to fight the war against the virus, the Tabligh Jamaat members were spreading deadly infection by totally ignoring government instructions to follow social distancing. It put the lives of countless people in danger,” the statement said.
The MRM asked when people of all religions cancelled their programmes and activities, even the largest organisation like the RSS cancelled its annual meeting of the representatives scheduled in Bengaluru in March, why the Tabligh Jamaat failed to cancel its meeting in the interest of the nation? “The head of the Markaz Maulana Saad should have vacated the Markaz much earlier, but he did not and committed a prima facie crime. By doing so he acted against the Islamic tenets,” Mohd Afzal said adding that the residents of the area and political parties supporting these Tabligh Jamaat also have a responsibility to inform the authorities which they did not. Commenting on the misbehave with doctors and nurses by Jamat people during treatment, the MRM said by indulging in such filthy actions, the Jamat people have defamed Islam, which is known as a religion of peace, brotherhood, and security.
In view of the ‘Shabe Barat’, the MRM urged the Muslims of Bharat to remain in their houses and perform ‘dua’ and prayers for their ancestors by strictly adhering to the government directive of physical distancing. The MRM also appealed to the Muslims to keep the ‘Kabrastans’ locked and do not venture outside to save them from the Corona virus infection. The MRM further urged the Muslims to offer ‘dua’ and prayers for the peace of those martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the motherland. Muslims should leave their imprint as a ‘nek’ (honest), ‘sachcha’ (true) and a good human being, the MRM national convener said. He appealed to the people to stand united in this fight against the Corona virus and spread the message of ‘Ek Bharat, Shreshth Bharat’ in the entire world by overcoming this global pandemic.
Meanwhile, responding positively to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s appeal to light lamps at 9.00 pm on April 5, 2020 to express solidarity, unity, and resolve of the people in the war against Coronavirus, crores of Muslims all over Bharat proved that they love India are with the Prime Minister Modi at this hour of global crisis.
Unlike Tablighi Jamaat people, Muslims across the country lit the lamps in their houses, mosques and other places turning off the electric lights for nine minutes reposing their faith in the leadership of the Prime Minister in this fight against the virus. Prominent Muslims from all walks of life participated in this unique event across the length and breadth of the country. The Muslim Rashtriya Manch office-bearers and workers, their family members, Maulanas, Muftis, Imams, etc. lit the lamp to express their resolve and determination to win this war against the Corona virus pandemic.
