Kumbh Mela in Haridwar hardly sees any crowd

And nobody from the Kumbh Mela is spreading Covid-19 wantonly, spitting on health workers or assaulting cops, unlike Muslims in 2020

Contrary to the narrative built by some people including celebrities like filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma who said the Kumbh Mela was a “corona bomb”, Sirf News received a video from Haridwar that shows people few and far between on the ghats of the Ganga.

Since the beginning of the Kumbh Mela, there has been an attempt to look at the annual holy event of the Hindus in the same light in which Tablighi Jamaat’s belligerence was viewed in 2020 during the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

The propaganda misses the point that neither have the sparse attendants of the Kumbh Mela come to India on visa from highly infected countries like China, Iran, Italy and CIS nations in March 2020 nor are they spitting on doctors, nurses and other health workers.

A mechanism was put in place by the Uttarakhand administration to let in only such devotees who can produce negative reports of RT-PCR. About a thousand cases of infection have still been reported, but the patients were all quickly quarantined and none made a fuss of it. And no one from the Kumbh Mela is assaulting policemen, unlike Muslims who did not even belong to the Jamaat did in the period March-June 2020 in Indore, Moradabad, Aurangabad, etc.
