BJP President J P Nadda has asked his party leaders to stay away from giving a pandemic a communal perspective. Immediately after the news outbreak of Nizamuddin Markaz, people initiated calling it a communal spread by attacking a specific community, Muslims.
After more than 200 people from the Tablighi Jamaat from Nizamuddin were found positive several people including some leaders of the government in power gave divisive remarks about Muslims. The BJP president also directed people to stay away from spreading hate against religious minorities. “We have to be united in our fight against the virus,” said Nadda.
Some leaders including the head of the BJP IT Cell, Amit Malviya commented about the community blaming their religion and culture. He didn’t even spare Jamia and Shaheen Bagh, and called everything radical.
Amidst this hatred, J P Nadda took the initiative to recommend his party members to stay away from attacking people on the basis of their religion. He asked the citizens, irrespective of religion to stay united to fight against the pandemic.
