As of now, 127 Tablighi Jamaatis from Nizamuddin have been traced in Ahmedabad. Those who had attended the Shura Tablighi Jamaat are currently undergoing medical tests. The Shura faction of the Tablighi Jamaat broke away from Maulana Saad’s Jamaat in 2016 because of his ‘autocratic ways’. Its centre is in Nerul in Mumbai and also at Faiz Ilahi mosque at Turkman Gate. It has followers in Gujarat, Delhi, Karnataka and parts of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Madhya Pradesh.
