79 of 120 Tableeghi Jamaat preachers fled from Bhakkar quarantine centre but district administration is hiding facts due to fear of action against it negligence.
Since the government found Deobandi Tableeghi Jamaat or preaching party’s members infected with Coronavirus, it began action to restrict them.
79 of 120 Tableeghi Jamaat preachers fled
In Bhakkar district of Punjab, the administration shifted 120 such Deobandi preachers at quarantine centre but now only 41 stay there.
Remaining 79 have fled. People say that they are hiding in the surroundings because of lack of public transport facilities due to lockdown.
These Tableeghi Jamaat preachers belong to other districts of Punjab and Sindh province.
Biased policy harms Pakistan
Earlier, Deobandi Tableeghi Jamaat member stabbed SHO in bid to flee quarantine centre.
Around 100 Tableeghi Jamaat clerics including foreigners found in Sukkur although Pakistan is witnessing lockdown to prevent Coronavirus spread.
Deobandi Tableeghi Jamaat or preaching party has violated lockdown and also defied precautionary measures.
Even foreigners are roaming along with local preaching party in Pakistan and many diagnosed with positive tests for Coronavirus.
Biased government policy
Unfairness and bias of the government remain visible because United States, UK and many other countries had confirmed Coronavirus cases in January 2020 but Pakistan government had not quarantined people coming from those countries.
Despite the fact that Iran first reported confirmed case on February 18, the US-funded activists began targeting Iran and Shia Zaireen (pilgrims) while keeping silence over those returned from the entire world.
Even the Pakistan government had closed Taftan border with Iran.
One million in Pakistan not quarantined
But at least one million people had entered Pakistan since January 2020 when Coronavirus first reported in other countries.
None of those at least one million people were taken into government custody for quarantine and they continue to roam in the society.
Amazingly and interestingly, government took Shia Zaireen into custody soon after their entry at Taftan border.
The government authorities kept them for two weeks at Taftan in the name of quarantine.
Later, they shifted them to provinces’ quarantine centers. Shia Zaireen had not been allowed to go home for a month because government kept them at quarantine centres.
Only after negative test reports, government shifted such Zaireen to their homes and keep them under watch till now.
But at the same time, Deobandi preaching party Tableeghi Jamaat held congregation in Raiwind Lahore with foreigners attending it.
Many of their groups now have spread across Pakistan on preaching mission and spread Coronavirus. Some have died.
Instead of abiding by law, they attacked police to escape quarantine.
However, Shia Muslims abide by law and precautionary measures. They have suspended all congregations, including congregational prayers.
Even then, US-Saudi pressure and blackmailing compelled Pakistan government to target only Shia Zaireen on the pretext of quarantine.
