Coronavirus: 3 more test positive in Karnataka with Tablighi connect, count reaches 128


Bengaluru, Apr 3 (IANS): Three more Tablighi Jamaat pilgrims have tested Covid-19 positive in Karnataka, raising the state's tally to 128, an official said on Friday.

"As of 5 p.m. on Friday, 128 Covid-19 positive cases have been confirmed in the state, including three deaths and 11 discharges," said the health official.

Across the state, 111 Covid-19 patients, including a pregnant woman, are in isolation at designated hospitals and their condition is stated to be stable, except three -- cases No. 43, 101 and 102.

After one non-Tablighi case surfaced in the morning, Friday saw three more Tablighi men from Belagavi testing positive for the dreaded virus.

The state's 126th Covid positive case is a 70-year-old from Belagavi who attended the Tablighi Jamaat religious congregation in Delhi's Nizamuddin area last month.

A 26-year-old Tablighi pilgrim from the same place is the 127th case.

Karnataka's last case for Friday is a 20-year-old from Belagavi who also attended the Tablighi event.

All the new cases have been admitted to a designated hospital in Belagavi, 510 km from from Bengaluru on the west coast of the state.

With these, the number of positive cases in the state with Tablighi connect has gone up to 13.

    When these Tablighi type people will learn to behave like human beings. Uniform civil code and strict laws should be enforced immediately after we overcome this Covid19 situation.

    Its bit a shocking to hear that in the midst of the lockdown- while all the transport means were suspended– on March 28, a fleet of special luxury buses was arranged to directly ferry to home around 1800 Gujarati pilgrims stranded in Haridwar at the behest of Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani.

    In stark contrast, the Delhi authorities denied transport permission to the stuck members of Tabitha Jamaat at its headquarters Markaz Nizamuddin due to lockdown who had even arranged their own vehicles for the journey as early as on 25th March.

    It is “wrong and insensitive” to organise an event at such a sensitive time but to blame all Muslims for spreading the infection is “vindictive”.

    The site of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is the official source of information which provides data on coronavirus related cases.

    There is no specific data related to coronavirus cases available on Ministry of Health and Family Welfare proving any connection between Tablighi Jamaat and coronavirus cases.

    Media didn’t blamed Sikh religious leader Baldev Singh, 70, who returned from a trip to virus-plagued Italy and Germany and went preaching in more than a dozen villages in Punjab state reportedly infecting at least 15,000 from coronavirus.

    Why the media is 'communal virus' is spreading faster than the 'corona virus'?

    Is the Ministry Of Health website giving ball by ball running commentary on its affairs? So, you reserve the right to continue to do such activities? You seem to have taken over the mantle of the lawyer that tabligi or whatever it is, from the other gentleman who used to play that role here.

    While the biased media is deflecting the attention of the nation suffering from migrant workers 'long march' using Tablighi connection, US Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback described it “wrong” to blame religious minorities for the spread of coronavirus, asserting that the “blame game” over the origin of COVID-19 should be aggressively pushed back by the governments across the world.

    In the midst of the lockdown- while all the transport means were suspended– on March 28, a fleet of special luxury buses was arranged to directly ferry to home around 1800 Gujarati pilgrims stranded in Haridwar at the behest of Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani. In stark contrast, the Delhi authorities denied transport permission to the stuck members of Tabitha Jamaat at its headquarters Markaz Nizamuddin due to lockdown who had even arranged their own vehicles for the journey as early as on 25th March.

    This vilification campaign against Tablighi Jamaat should be condemned. What about the events organized by Modi govt and BJP leaders and supporters led the way in holding large gatherings even after the danger was clear and the lockdown was announced. 700 MPs attended Parliament; the BJP performed its coup in the MP Assembly, held a large gathering to celebrate the coup on 24 March and UP Chief Minister also held a gathering in Ayodhya in violation of lockdown?

    Readers, the tally of Covid19 cases till date are 2547... with 62 deaths !!! The spike of positive patients related to Tablighi Jamat, conclave which was held in Nizamuddin is 647 patients... a rise by 25•4% !!!! Experts have definitely predicted, a substantial increase to the "Markaz" factor in states of Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh Kerala, Maharashtra and even Karnataka !!!!

    Its not over yet. The cases are emerging from tablig markaz cuz they are traced and quarantine. But what about those who are still violating socual distance across the country might turn into time bombs if administration ignore their movement.. Yesterday we seen in west Bengal crowd gathered during Ram Navami rituals. In Gujarat few temple pilgrims are still violating lockdown and what about those migrant workers who left delhi in thousands. Do we have the answers.

    India is a very tolerant ,spiritual,secular and peace loving country.
    In any other country say China,N.Korea ,Iran, these Tablighi connect along with the
    Markaz attendees and its organisers would have been shot dead without trial for putting their country in danger .

    You mean in UP the temple ceremony after lock down(after25) was wrong ? The attendees in kashi vishwanath was wrong ?
    Union ministry was correct in declaring no health emergency in India on 13th march ?
    If ban was declared, such a huge number of people organizing together was undetected ? Intelligence failure?

    Would you want to live in such countries or would you like to live in countries like US or UK. I think our emigration numbers suggest the answer.

    R.Bhandarkar, Mangaluru, you are absolutely right. This happens only in India. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte orders police and military to "kill citizens" who defy coronavirus lockdown. If it is done here then human rights, pseudoseculars, rationalists and all will start hue and cry. This is a curse to our nation.
