While several voices have appealed not to communalise the coronavirus crisis, Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday said that Tablighi Jamaat members who attended the religious gathering at Delhi’s Nizamuddin Markaz in the month of March are “human bombs”.

Devendra Fadnavis, who is also the leader of the opposition (LoP) in Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, said that those attended the religious congregation in Nizamuddin last months can potentially spread the infection among a large population. 

Fadnavis’ remarks came after he met Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari. “The COVID-19 infected people who have come from the religious gathering at the Nizamuddin in Delhi are kind of human bombs. They can cause infection in large scale population,” former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said this in a video message. 

Fadnavis further stated that it is important to trace and treat these people. The Tablighi Jamaat event has caused a huge ruckus in mainstream media after members of the Jamaat were linked to a spike in the coronavirus or COVID-19 across the country.

Meanwhile, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday said that it was not right to blame any society for the coronavirus outbreak while appealing the media and society not to communalise the Nizamuddin event during an interaction with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

LoP Devendra Fadnavis led a delegation to meet Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari including BJP leader Kirit Somaiya. The delegation stated that the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government was not serious about the frontline health workers and labourers while requesting the Governor to raise this issue with the state government. 

The number of COVID-19 cases in India has increased to 5,734 while the death toll has soared up to 184. In Maharashtra, the number has gone up to 1,297 with 72 deaths due to the coronavirus.
