The Chief Justice of India said that nowadays some sections of the media is communalizing everything while serving the news and the country is getting a bad name.
Earlier, a petition was filed in the Supreme court of India in March last year blaming the Tablighi Jamaat for the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
Tablighi Jamaat is a transnational Sunni Islamic missionary movement that focuses on exhorting Muslims and encouraging fellow members to return to practicing their religion as per the Islamic prophet Muhammad, particularly in matters of ritual, dress and personal behavior.
Incidentally in the last year, from the first to the middle of March, Tablighi Jamaat organized a huge religious gathering at one Markaz Mosque in Delhi, the capital of India.
The Daily Vendor Newspaper learnt that the gathering was attended by Muslims from different parts of the country. At the same time, many from abroad also joined.
It was learned that many people from many countries like Malaysia and Indonesia attended the event.
Within a few weeks, the situation in the country began to spiral out of control. The nationwide lockdown started. At that time, fingers started pointing at Markaz Mosque in Delhi as the epicenter of the Corona infection in India. The Union Home Ministry however warned all states that if a foreigner is found to be a member of Tabligh-e-Jamaat, he or she must immediately undergo a thorough physical examination to see if Corona is lodged in their body.
This was the comment made by the Supreme Court during the hearing of a case on Thursday. On the same day, the Chief Justice of Indian Supreme Court Mr. NV Ramana said, “The problem is that part of the media wants to see everything in this country from the point of view of communalism. That’s the problem. As a result, the name of the country is getting bad.”
The Chief Justice also reprimanded the news web portals too in this context. In his words, “Web portals only listen to influential voices. They writes whatever they likes!!! They only care about the influential. There is no headache with judges, institutions and common people. Our experience says so. ”
