Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held Tablighi Jamaat members responsible for the spread of coronavirus not because they were infected with the disease but hid it which is a serious crime.
“The role of Tablighi Jamaat was most condemnable. To get a disease is not a crime but to hide a disease which is infectious is definitely a crime. And this crime has been done by those associated with the Tablighi Jamaat,” he said at a programme of a new channel on Saturday.
“In Uttar Pradesh and other places where the spread of the coronavirus has been seen, Tablighi Jamaat is behind it. Had they not hidden the disease and went about like its carriers, then perhaps we would have controlled the coronavirus outbreak to a large extent,” he had said.
