After massive public anger on the activities of Tablighi Jamaat which led to the spike in the number of Coronavirus cases, on April 2nd 2020, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has blacklisted 960 foreigners who are present in India on tourist visas.
MHA has also directed DGPs of all concerned States/UTs and CP, Delhi Police to take necessary legal action against all such violators, on priority, under relevant sections of the Foreigners Act, 1946 and Disaster Management Act, 2005.
While Indian nationals are staying inside their homes in a lockdown state, after an appeal by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Tablighi Jamaat made a serious dent in the Indian nations’ fight against the pandemic Coronavirus.
India has a total of 2,902 Coronavirus cases and 68 people have lost their lives to the pandemic.
