Coronavirus and anti CAA Protest

Chennai: Muslims should stop their Delhi Shaheen Bagh-type protests in Tamil Nadu as the blame of spreading coronavirus might fall on the community, said a senior leader of the Indian Union of Muslim League (IUML) on Monday.

Speaking at a wedding in Sivagana, K.M. Kader Mohideen, IUML National President, said all over the world steps were being taken to prevent congregation of people to avoid the spread of coronavirus and appealed Muslims to stop their protests in Tamil Nadu.

If Muslims continued to protest in large groups against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) then the blame of spreading coronavirus would fall on the community, which should not happen, Mohideen said.

The Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamaath (TNTJ) said it would organise a state-wide "jail filling protest" on March 18, demanding the state government to pass a resolution in the Assembly against the National Population Register (NPR).

TNTJ's General Secretary E. Mohammed said the protest would be held in all the districts in Tamil Nadu. He said the NPR, the CAA and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) were more dangerous than coronavirus.

Notwithstanding the IUML appeals, the protesters at Shaheen Bagh in New Delhi had on Friday said that they were not scared of Coronavirus and theyr would continue their stir till the controversial act is revoked.

They also said they that they were taking all the precautions and following the health guidelines issued over Coronavirus.
