Tablighis start leaving, 21 board flight for Indonesia

Chandigarh: Having spent around four months in Haryana, including over three months behind bars, the first batch of Tablighi Jamaat members from abroad, who were arrested in the state, left for Indonesia on Wednesday.
Granted permission by the ministry of external affairs to return to their countries, 21 Tablighis boarded the flight for Indonesia from the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi.
According to information, of these 21 Tablighis, 11 were arrested in Mewat and the rest in Faridabad, Palwal, Sonipat and Ambala districts.
Earlier this month, various courts had disposed of their cases after slapping fines on them and directed the police to return their passports, so that they could go back.
Notably, over 115 Tablighis had been arrested by the police after state-wide raids conducted by the intelligence wing of Haryana Police following a tipoff that they had attended Markaz at Nizamuddin in the national capital.
This had happened in the first week of April and the Jamaatis were accused of triggering the first wave of Covid-19 in NCR districts as well as minority-dominated areas of Haryana.
