CJI SA Bobde led bench hears the case against communal reporting of the #TablighiJamaat incident

CJI:We are not happy with the reply of the Centre. You have not dealt with the applicability of the Cable Television Networks Act and the legal regime concerning this

CJI: First you did not file a proper affidavit and then you filed an affidavit which did not deal with the two important questions. This way it cannot be done Mr Mehta.

You have to tell us how you have acted under Cable TV Act in some prior incident

CJI: We want to know the mechanism employed by you and this affidavit has nothing on it. Why should we refer to NBSA etc when you have the authority to look into it. If it does not exist then you create an authority else we will hand it over to an outside agency

#SupremeCourt commences hearing of a bunch of matters against cancellation of visas & blacklisting of around 3500 foreigners, reportedly the members of #TablighiJamaat who took part in the #NizamuddinMarkaz.
SG Tushar Mehta submits cancellation of visas is a purely sovereign function, no role of judicial review. He adds visas were cancelled by way of individual orders, sent through emails on a case by case basis.

Some 1500 emails were sent to these foreigners.

While #SupremeCourt observes the individual orders will have to be challenged, lawyers from the other side point out this will then involve multiple high courts & that in some cases, even the emails weren't served.

1n Pointing out that #TablighJamaat is disproportionately responsible for the spread of a disease is NOT Islamophobia. It comes from the methods of political negotiation that muslims developed in the wake of 1857 & have been systematically rewarded by both Britain and India
2n Given their eviction from power, their society never moved past the feudal structure of power capture by few elite families. Given their weak economic & electoral hand: their tactics have remained consistent: escalating through obstinacy, obstructionism & finally violence.
3n An example of this is Partition. Jinnah starts with impossible maximalist demands, then starts obstructionism, & finally calls for violence. Issue is this pattern was rewarded by the British, then by the INC & now by the BJP. This strategy has proved brilliant for them.

THREAD: The issue of #coronavirus and #TablighiJamat has taken a predictable turn. Not to re-litigate the arguments, there is definitely a selective justice component here and media is blaming the entire community. Something to distract from the GOI cluster-eff on #COVID19. 1/n
If Kejriwal is keen on filing FIRs against people who allegedly violated instructions of Mar 13, there are other religious gatherings that should come under the scanner. Tablighi Jamat seems to be a convenient scapegoat at the altar of colossal mismanagement. 2/n
At the same time, Tablighi leadership is not without faults. Even when GOI itself announced on Mar 13 that #COVID19 wasn’t a health emergency, Maulana Saad should have considered Markaz operations in light of global situation for three reasons. #NizamuddinMarkaz

A timeline of many advisories to bust Congress/AAP ecosystem defence of #NizamuddinMarkaz Islamists that they had no idea before 24th March of what was happening, hence not their fault.

1) 4th March Delhi Govt: No large gatherings
2) 4th March: PM tweet on no Holi Milan

3) 12th March Delhi govt: Epidemic Act invoked
4) 13th March Delhi govt: All 200+ gatherings banned
5) 16th March: Gathering size reduced to below 50
6) 19th March Delhi govt: All educational institutions closed till 31st March

#NizamuddinMarkaz #TablighiJamat

7) 22nd March: Lock down of Delhi by Delhi government.


So for Islamists to now claim that national lock down on 24th was sudden hence they could not get out is pure bigotry. #NizamuddinMarkaz

Sequence of Events-Failure of Administration:
1- Entry of Foreigners: "When asked whether the foriegn preachers were not screened at the airport for any COVID symptoms, the official said, “they entered India before the red alert was sounded.”
Failure 1- Delay in Announcing Red Alert for screening of foreigners for COVID-19. And if passengers entered before start of thermal screening in Jan 18, then these foreigners who entered before 18th Jan shouldn't be blamed as symptoms of COVID19 starts appearing within 14 days.
So they might had got infected in India. Based on above reports.

(For date of thermal screening, refer ET report below & for official Statement regarding entry of preachers before start of screening, refer The Hindu news above)…

The Ghettos are not following the lockdown. They have also imported the #ChineseVirus from Saudi.

Is there a conspiracy?
Is there a method in the madness? Image
Watch, Aajtak reports that the #NizamuddinMarkaz folks, who are infected, while being taken in the bus to the hospital started spitting out on the people from the window of the bus.

What a death cult of 7th century!
