Various intelligence agencies of the country have shared exclusively with Sirf News details of foreign Tablighi Jamaat workers (pro-Shoora) who visited India this year. The agencies shared this information with state police forces and administrations, urging them to follow up these mischievous elements and take appropriate action against each. The names of Indian pro-Shoora leaders who visited Indonesia and Pakistan recently have come out too.

Several Tablighi Jamaat workers in Pakistan who attended the ijtema (an Islamic congregation organised by Islamic organisations in association with millions of Muslims) at Raiwind, Lahore, have tested positive. The Pakistan government has sealed the Raiwind complex on coming to know of the bio-terrorists.

The police are now scrutinising the pro-Shoora faction of Tablighi Jamaat for COVID-19 infection.

Another faction of Tablighi Jamaat, the pro-Shoora faction that is promoted by Raiwind Markaz of Pakistan, is operating in India with limited influence. It is headquartered at Nerul Markaz, Navi Mumbai (Maharashtra) and Markaz Masjid Faiz-e-Ilahi, Turkman Gate, Delhi.

Foreign Tablighi Jamaat members supporting the pro-Shoora faction report to the headquarters for Tabligh work and leaders of this faction also visit abroad for attending religious congregations, police sources told Sirf News.

Foreign pro-Shoora Tablighi Jamaat workers, mostly from Bangladesh, have visited different states of the country. Some of them may well have carried coronavirus and infected others.

There was a group of 19 mostly Bangladeshi visitors in Karnataka. From the set, 14 went to Tamil Nadu, eight to Andhra Pradesh, two to Rajasthan and one to Telangana for Tabligh activities since January 2020.

Further, 69 Indian Muslims travelled to foreign countries for Tabligh activities since January 2020. In addition, about 11 prominent pro-Shoora Tablighi Jamaat members from India, including prominent leaders of the pro-Shoora faction went abroad. The contingent had the following prominent clerics:

  • Maulana Ibrahim Dewla (Maharashtra)
  • Maulana Ahmed Laat (Maharashtra)
  • Maulana Farooq (Karnataka)
  • Maulana Ismail Godhra (Gujarat) and
  • Maulana Zuhair-ul-Hasan (Uttar Pradesh)

They attended a religious congregation of 50,000 people between 10 and 20 March organised at the Tablighi Jamaat Headquarters in Pakistan (Raiwind, district Lahore).

One Maulavi Abdul Rahman (60 years), who lives near Fishmarket, Jogeshwari West, Mumbai, was part of the pro-Shoora team that visited Pakistan. He has tested positive for COVID-19 infection.

Five leaders of this faction named below, with some names repeated from the list above, returned to India on 22 March after attending another religious congregation of pro-Shoora Tablighi Jamaat in Indonesia. Sources in the intelligence agencies told Sirf News that they had shared these details with the respective state administrations.

  • Maulana Ibrahim Dewla (Maharashtra)
  • Maulana Ahmed Laat (Maharashtra)
  • Maulana Farooq (Karnataka)
  • Maulana Sanaullah (Uttar Pradesh) and
  • Professor Abdul Rahman (Tamil Nadu)

Foreign Tabligh workers affiliated to the pro-Shoora faction of Tabligh Jamaat usually visit India for their activities on the strength of tourist visa.

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) had issued guidelines (No 25022/116/2011-FI, 3 November 2011) to all states governments and union territories that explain what actions they must take against foreigners indulging in religious activities (including Tabligh work) during their visit to India.

While the state administrations are locating foreigners on Tabligh work in their respective areas of jurisdiction for medical test and/or quarantine, there is a need to map the presence of foreign Tablighi Jamaat workers affiliated to the pro-Shoora faction as well as their Indian counterparts who returned from abroad and their contacts for COVID-19 screening and/or quarantine.
