Founder of Hum Hindu, Ajay Gautam has written a letter petition to Chief Justice of India SA Bobde seeking for a complete ban on the Tablight Jamaat and all its activities.
Thousands of people from across the world had attended the Tablight Jammat congregation held at Nizamuddin from March 13-15, even during the country’s lockdown to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
Ajay Gautam has requested the Court to treat his letter as Public Interest Litigation and in his letter has submitted that Hundreds of foreigners of 61 countries who came on tourist Visa joined the Nizamuddin gathering for propagating Islam in India. It is also submitted that these foreigners came from places where the Coronavirus has already spread in large numbers and they hid this information from the concerned agency. This petition has also blamed the Jammat for spreading Covid-19 to 21 states across the India.
Ajay Gautam has stated that even though police and medical authorities asked the Jammat members to come forward and report the medical complications, none of them came forward and it was only after the police raid that the infected ones were found inside the Markaz building.
Ajay Gautam has stated that the Court should direct the Delhi Government to demolish the Markaz building situated in Nizamuddin as it was an illegal structure.
It has been also stated by Ajay Gautam that the entire congregation is a planned conspiracy and the Jammat members were responsible for spreading the pandemic as a “bio-weapon”, and that the war has been raised against the Union of India.
The petition further states that there are two substantial questions of law of general public importance to be dealt by the court:
- Whether a particular community or a section of the society can be permitted to violate the law of land?
- Whether the law of land discriminates between the minority and majority?
Ajay Gautam has requested for a CBI probe into the role of the Jammat in spreading COVID-19 in India, as well as its alleged role in the communal riots that took place in the North East Delhi in February.
