Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a total lockdown for the safety of countrymen from the outbreak of coronavirus. While a huge part of the population of India is obeying the rules, a religious congregation in Delhi has emerged as one of the country’s largest hot spot during this period of the pandemic.
Roughly 7,600 Indian and 1,300 foreigners went to join the congregation in Delhi last month according to the Union Home Minister. This number may be assumed to be more as many members from Tablighi Jamaat are spotted according to the source.
Officials are trying to identify the participants as such gathering is highly threatening in this situation of COVID 19 outbreak. Twenty-three states and four union territories are working to spot 1306 members of the organization from countries since religious centre in Delhi’s Nizamuddin West area congregation happened. As per data by the home ministry till 1st April 1051 people have been quarantined among which 21 have been tested positive and two have died.
Public figure Ankur Singh shared a video clip from his social platform Facebook, where a nurse is explaining how a crazy mob of Jamaat tried to beat them while they went to the place to check coronavirus affected people after getting the news.
In this video clip, people are chasing the healthcare personnel for checking on them. Healthcare personnel were there with the sole purpose to identify coronavirus positive cases only. However, instead of helping them, the Jamaat group tried to scare them away by pelting things at them, while some of them even tried to chase them away with sticks.
The nurse in this video is explaining her horrible experience after being chased by the Jamaat mob. Facebook users are appreciating the initiative by this healthcare personnel in their comments while some are just trying to justify the ruckus.
