“A political government tries to find the scapegoat when there is pandemic or calamity and the circumstances show that there is a probability that these foreigners were chosen to make them scapegoats,” court said.
Dismissing That the FIRs/Chargsheets registered by Mumbai Police against Tablighi Jamaat foreigners, the Bombay High Court (Aurangabad bench) came down against Social propaganda Across the Matter.
“There was big propaganda in print media and electronic media from the foreigners who had come to Markaz Delhi and also an attempt was made to generate a photo that these foreigners had been in charge of distributing COVID-19 virus at India”, ” the court said that there was”virtually persecution” against these foreigners.
A division bench comprising Justice TV Nalawade and Justice M G Sewlikar, after examining the material on record, reached the end that no prima facie case was made out from the 35 petitioners before the Court, including a few foreigners. They have been booked under several parts of IPC for violating Tourist Visa states by attending the Tablighi Jamaat tribe at Nizamuddin at Delhi.
“The cloth of this current matter proves that the propaganda from the alleged religious activity was unwarranted,” the court said, noting no prima facies case under these exemptions had been made out contrary to the petitioners, the bench said.
Tablighi Jamaat activity had been going on for more than 50 decades and it has to be thought that the Central Government knows it while granting a visa to the foreigners to attend the summit at Nizam-Ud-Din Markaz in New Delhi, the court observed.
Court also stated that Tablighis were made”scapegoats” and that the present variety of COVID-19 cases in India show that the action contrary to Tablighi Jamaat attendees was unwarranted.
“A governmental Government attempts to discover the scapegoat whenever there’s pandemic or calamity as well as the conditions demonstrate that there is a probability that these foreigners were chosen to create sure they are scapegoats. The aforesaid conditions and the most recent amounts of disease in India reveal that such actions against present petitioners should not have now been taken. It is now large time to the concerned to regret about this activity removed from the foreigners and to take some good measures to repair the damage done by such actions,” the court said
