COVID19 got communal colors in India.
In the war against Coronavirus, pls remember that every single citizen is the real front line fighter like the soldier fighting at borders to defend his motherland.
Your arms, ammunition and shields include the following:
1. Staying at home.
2. Maintaining social distance.
3. Frequent hand wash especially before touching your face.
4. Wearing HOMEMADE masks. SURGICAL mask is to be worn only on doctor's advice.
5. Following quarantine procedures if you're advised by doctors/administration.
The healthcare workers will definitely take care of those who are wounded in the battle. Please fight well so that you don't get wounded.
We also want to tell you honestly that there is no medicine for coronavirus till today. (We need more scientific studies on using Hydroxychloroquine, Azithromycin, and other drugs).
So, the only way to win the battle is by using the above mentioned arms, ammunition and shields.
This is your chance to fight a battle as a frontline fighter for your country. Pls fight well and emerge victorious.
There are so many educated officers and friends who are trying to play politics at this time when coronavirus has hurt our lives and economy. Pls stop stupid politics. Be open minded and rational. Let's appreciate leaders who work for our betterment irrespective of political affiliation. I mean even if you like a particular political party pls appreciate if any other political party is also doing something good. Time to fight unitedly.
A case has been registered by the Delhi Police against Maulana Saad and other officials of Tablighi Jamaat for violating the restriction pertaining to a religious gathering. Sections under the Epidemic Disease Act,1897 and Section 269, 270, 271 and 120-B of the Indian Penal Code have been invoked. In the FIR, it has been stated that the congregation failed to take safety measures for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. Earlier, the Markaz Nizamuddin claimed that it had not flouted the rules and discontinued the religious function after the announcement of the nationwide lockdown. Instead, it alleged that many of the attendees were stuck due to the unavailability of transport services.
PRESS NOTE ISSUED BY MARKAZ NIZAMUDDIN, DELHI
Markaz Nizamuddin is the international headquarters of Tabilghi Jamaat for close to 100 years. Visitors/guests/devotees/worshippers from across the globe throng the place for pre-scheduled programs lasting for no more than 3-5 days. All the programs are decided a year in advance in order to facilitate visitors from far-off places to plan their participation.
When Hon’ble Prime Minister announced the “Janta Curfew”, for 22nd March 2020, the ongoing program in Markaz Nizamuddin was discontinued immediately, however due to sudden cancelation of rail services across the country on 21st March 2020, a large group of visitors who had to depart by way of railways got stuck in the Markaz premises.
On 22nd March 2020, “Janta Curfew” was observed and accordingly visitors were advised not to venture out until 9 PM as desired by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, therefore the plans to move back to their native places by way of means other than railways also did not materialize. Before the Janta Curfew could be lifted at 9PM, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Delhi announced lockdown of Delhi beginning at 6AM on 23rd March 2020 till 31st March 2020, thereby further diminishing any chances of these visitors availing road transport for their journey back home. Despite this challenging situation, with the help of Markaz administration, around fifteen hundred visitors left Markaz Nizamuddin by availing whatever meager transport was available.
Suddenly on the evening of 23rd March, a further nationwide lockdown was announced by the Hon’ble Prime Minister with clear message for people to stay-put wherever they are. Under such compelling circumstances there was no option for Markaz Nizamuddin but to accommodate the stranded visitors with prescribed medical precautions till such time that situation becomes conducive for their movement or arrangements are made by the authorities.
On 24th March 2020, suddenly a notice was issued by SHO, P.S. Hazrat Nizamuddin, seeking closure of Markaz premises. The same was responded on 24th March 2020, stating that the compliance of the directions regarding closure of Markaz is already underway and around 1500 people had departed the previous day, thus leaving around 1000 visitors belonging to different states and nationalities in Markaz. It was also informed that the Ld. SDM concerned had been requested to issue vehicle passes so that the remaining people could be sent back to their native places outside of Delhi. It is relevant to indicate here that lists of 17 vehicles with registration numbers along with the names of the drivers plus their license details were submitted to the Ld. SDM so that the stranded visitors/guests could be ferried towards their destination. The requisite permission is still awaited.
On 25th March 2020, the Tehsildaar along with medical team visited the Markaz, full cooperation was provided for their inspection as well as in preparation of list of visitors, many of whom were examined by them.
On 26th March 2020, the Ld. SDM visited Markaz Nizamuddin and called us for a further meeting with the Ld. DM. We met the Ld. DM, apprised him of the stranded visitors and once again sought permission for the vehicles arranged by us.
The next day, i.e. 27th March 2020, six persons were taken for medical check-up.
On 28th March 2020, the Ld. SDM and WHO team visited the Markaz and 33 persons were taken for medical checkup to Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Hospital. Surprisingly on the same day another notice was issued, this time by the Office of ACP, Lajpat Nagar, reiterating the prohibitory orders and warning of legal action, this being totally oblivious of the above deliberations and steps that had already been taken by Markaz Nizamuddin in consultation with the authorities. However, the same was replied in detail vide letter dated 29th March 2020.
Yesterday, 30th March 2020, a rumour started gaining ground across social media that allegedly people affected with COVID-19 are present in Markaz. It is also being circulated that certain deaths have occurred due to the same. Unexpectedly, as reported by ANI, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Delhi went on to say that he has directed authorities to take legal action against the administration of Markaz. It is humbly stated that if the above fact-check could have been done by the Office of Hon’ble Chief Minister, the authorities would have apprised him about their visits, deliberations and cooperation extended by the Markaz in order to disperse the remaining visitors. During this entire episode, Markaz Nizamuddin never violated any provision of law, and always tried to act with compassion and reason towards the visitors who came to Delhi from different states. It did not let them violate the medical guidelines by thronging ISBTs or roaming on streets.
Markaz Nizamuddin would like to humbly offer the entire premises as a quarantine facility to help the authorities tide-over the challenge of current pandemic. Throughout its 100-year existence, Markaz Nizamuddin has an unblemished history of cooperating with administration/ authorities and always upholding the rule of law in letter and spirit. In the present challenge of COVID-19, Markaz stands with the law enforcement authorities and shall remain forthcoming in complying with all the guidelines issued by them.

If you are still obsessing over #NizamuddinMarkaz think about hundreds of poor laborers who are still walking and haven’t reached home.
Hundreds of them who will sleep hungry tonight.
Pregnant women, old people and small children.
Remember, majority of them would be Hindus!
Some days ago, you were obsessed with Ram Navmi celebration in UP. Why did you not focus on these people then? Why diverting the issue from #NizamuddinMarkaj and #CoronaJihaad
Any agenda of yours? Or simply, secularism?
#CoronaJihad What did we learn today?coronavirus was Made in China which spread across the world. But we added GREEN mirchi (pun intended) to it in India and made it communal. #NizamuddinMarkaj.

Corona doesn't know religion. So, kindly remove the mask of religion and wear the mask of protection. Lets fight together to defeat it. You will have enough time to be hindu, muslim, christian etc if we survive and win over this pandemic.
When Airline & Railway operations are cancelled, how will anyone return to their places. Don't
home ministry knows foreign immigrants are in nation, and Markaz is the only place where they stay just like gurudwara.'Stay where, you are'
Those calling for arrest of #TablighiJamat must also call for the arrest of Kanika Kapoor, her VIP hosts, all Madhya Pradesh MLAs holding meetings when #COVID outbreak reported. Also of 700 MPs of both houses who attended Parl when there shd’ve been social distancing #Lockdown21
