Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday ordered the registration of an FIR against a maulana for leading a congregation in West Nizamuddin in South Delhi after several people who attended it showed symptoms of coronavirus, sources said.

They said the Delhi government will launch a house-to-house mapping exercise in two nearby colonies on Tuesday to check for coronavirus cases.

The Delhi Police on Monday cordoned off a major area in Nizamuddin West where several people showed symptoms of coronavirus after taking part in the congregation earlier this month, officials said.

Over 2,000 delegates, including from Indonesia and Malaysia, attended the Tabligh-e-Jamaat congregation in Nizamuddin West from March 1-15, officials said as the south Delhi neighbourhood was virtually sealed following fears that some people may have contracted Covid-19.

So far, 97 cases of coronavirus have been reported in the national capital.

    Please don’t make irresponsible comments without knowing the reality.
    We were the believers of Quran and Hadeeth. But in this time of FITNAH, we believe everything which this corrupted media narrates. Disgracing Muslim Brother or even a non-Muslim is not a minor sin. The day is coming when all of you will have to pay very big price for these deeds.
    Visit the link and imagine the conspiracy of Indian government
    & their pet media against Muslims.

  2. It is not about Muslims, Rather Islam is the only religion which has a scientific answer to pandemic.. What ever is being advised today in the form of lockdown has been prescribed by holy prophet (SAW) 14 hundred years back… During such a situation Stay wherever you are. This is the Islamic message. These people are ignorant and just for their jahalat they tarnish the image of Islam..

  3. This is a criminal act. They are putting our lives in danger.Why are the Muslims who are bent on spreading corona virus not put behind bars?Why are they treated differently than the rest of us? Shameful and totally appeasement politics.
