Pray at home during Ramzan: TJ leader Maulana Saad to followers


PTI, Apr 21, 2020, 8:01 AM IST

New Delhi: Tablighi Jamaat leader Maulana Saad Kandhalvi, who has been booked by the Delhi Police for holding a religious congregation here during the lockdown, on Monday, April 20 urged the followers of the organization to pray at home in the month of Ramzan.

“I request all, both in India and abroad, to strictly follow the guidelines and instructions of the local or national governments and till the time restrictions are in place and please observe prayers at home. And even in this, we should not invite people from outside,” he said in a statement.

Ramzan begins later this week. While addressing an online briefing on Sunday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal cited the Tablighi Jamaat congregation last month, a major hotspot, and the large inflow of travelers from other countries to Delhi as the reasons for the spread of the virus, and said the city was “fighting a difficult battle”.

The Delhi Police crime branch, had on March 31, lodged an FIR against seven people, including the cleric, on a complaint by the Station House Officer of Nizamuddin police station for holding the congregation in alleged violation of the orders against large gatherings to contain the spread of coronavirus.

Later, the Indian Penal Code Section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) was added to the FIR.

The cleric is wanted by the Delhi Police and he responded twice to them. He is currently under home quarantine.

In an audio message released earlier this month, Kandhalvi had said he was exercising self-quarantine after several hundred who visited the congregation at Nizamuddin Markaz tested positive for coronavirus.
