Woman died of Coronavirus on return from Saudi Arabia.
Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar confirmed death of the woman of Rahim Yar Khan due to COVID-19.
Woman died of Coronavirus
She had returned to Pakistan from Saudi Arabia.
The first Pakistani who died of Coronavirus had also returned from Saudi Arabia.
He also had gone to Saudi Arabia on Umrah pilgrimage.
Since the Pakistan government had not quarantined him hence he returned Mardan and hosted reception.
Dozens of people attended the reception.
The second Pakistani who died of Coronavirus had returned from Dubai. He belonged to Hangu district.
Deobandi Tableeghi Jamaat senior member also died of Coronavirus in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
Major Ilyas (retd) belonged to Deobandi Tableeghi Jamaat for a long time. He hailed from Abbottabad.
People largely attended the funeral prayers, procession and burial rituals in Kahyal graveyard near his house.
Since he died of Coronavirus, experts alert that the participants of the funeral rituals might also have suffered from the pandemic.
The attendees reportedly had not observed precautionary measures there.
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.
Unfair 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.
