MP Renukacharya, the political secretary of Karnataka C M Yediyurappa, accused the Tablighi Jamaat attendees in an indirect act of terrorism. However, he later added that blaming a whole community is wrong for the misdeeds of a few.
One of the BJP legislators from Karnataka cleared that some attendees of the Tablighi Jamaat event held in Delhi, intentionally evaded the test of coronavirus despite much request. He further added that it is not wrong to shoot such people.
Tablighi Jamaat event was held at Nizamuddin in New Delhi, after which it turned out to promote the spread of COVID-19 throughout the country.
The BJP MLA while speaking to the reporters in Davangere, saidthat “It is for sure that, some of those who attended the Nizamuddin event, despite the requests of CM and PM, are intentionally trying to evade by giving religions excuses. It looks like while dying they also want to kill others, he added.
If the Nizamuddin congregation attendees had went to the doctors directly after their visit, there wouldn’t be any issues, Renukacharya said.
While charging some attendees of indulgence in ‘anti-national’ deeds, it is wrong to remark that, those spreading the virus are indirectly indulged in terrorism, he added.
Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu CM B.S Yediyurappain an interview with a news channelwarned strict action against those who blame the entire Muslim community for such isolated events of few people.
Arvind Limbavali, BPJ state General Secretary, questioned the intentions of Tablighi Jamaat event’s attendees. He urges the government for taking strict action against those who didn’t come out for medical check-ups.
“They will be arrested who didn’t come out by themselves despite of enough time given to them, this is not a religions matter but of health of the state and society, and they are causing the spread,” he added.
For the Tablighi Jamaat attendees, the government said that, samples of around 920 people has been collected and among them 623 cases were negative and 27 were positive, and is awaiting of remaining results.
The government will also reveal the actual number of people who attended the event.
