Tamil Nadu: Islamist organisation which had protested against Ayodhya verdict defies High Court order, continue protests amidst coronavirus outbreak

While community transmission of the novel coronavirus has so far been limited thanks to the dedicated work of healthcare professionals and government, such protest sites with hundreds of people offer a conducive environment for the virus to proliferate and multiply.

Even as the tally of those affected by coronavirus surges across India, members of Islamist organisation-Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath continue to stage protest against the CAA, NRC and NPR in contravention to the High Court order. The demonstrations have been organised near the Madras High Court in Chennai.

Even as the country is battling the pandemic of coronavirus, with the number of cases steadily on the rise, a raft of Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath members along with other demonstrators gathered to mark their protest, defying the order against mass gathering and brazenly undermining the government’s efforts to limit the spread of coronavirus.

Earlier, the Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath group had carried out a protest march against the Supreme Court verdict in the long-standing Ayodhya dispute. Condemning the judgment that granted the Hindu side to build a temple at the Ram Janmabhoomi site, more than 2000 members of Thowheed group hit the streets of Chennai carrying placards and shouting slogans against the apex court’s verdict.

Thowheed group’s flagrant disregard of the public health safety amidst the looming coronavirus outbreak mirrors the blatant transgression of the orders banning public gathering by ‘protesters’ at Shaheen Bagh who have refused to follow the containment orders and decided not to curl off their protest. 

Exhibiting low regards for the public health system, ‘protesters’ at Shaheen Bagh, who have taken it as an ego tussle, are in no mood to relinquish their protest even as stringent lockdown is being observed in several cities across the country in the wake of threat from the novel coronavirus.

So far, Indian authorities have succeeded in curbing the community transmission of the deadly virus. However, a protest site like Shaheen Bagh and Thowheed protest in Chennai with hundreds of so-called protesters demonstrating against the CAA, offers a conducive environment for the virus to proliferate and multiply, resulting in a sudden explosion of the contagion as witnessed in Italy and Spain. However, the Islamist ‘protesters’ are inconsiderate of the dire implications that their protest poses even as they continue to cock a snook at the government.
