People ventured out from outside India to go to this occasion, and it is suspected that they may have brought the infection into the congregation.
The Tablighi Jamaat was accused of organizing that occasion in March, disregarding the danger of the spread of the infection. Very soon, reports began pouring in from various pieces of India, proposing that the biggest number of positive cases could be followed back to the occasion.
This turned into an avocation for the legislature to make a different segment of Tablighi Jamaat-related cases in its day by day briefings. It has made a feeling that the Muslim is the fundamental offender.
