The extent of the backlash can be judged by some tweets ... For starters ..

Dear pliable journalist,

Thoo.
Per her, Tabjeeqi Jamat and by extension Muslims getting a bad name is because of "pliable journalist".

Another one promoted by our very own Couptaji

Call it a mistake, not conspiracy against India, say Muslim scholars on Tablighi Jamaat event

All signs of revulsion and the resultant backlash.

Smita Barooah @smitabarooah

The decision to hold the #TabhleegiJamaat event was perhaps an error of judgement. The subsequent hiding ,lying, jumping quarantine, spitting, shitting, & flashing are all criminal acts. No amount of whitewashing will erase that.
I agree with this view.

There is no conspiracy against India but gross negligence to start with and continued criminal acts.

TJ leaders could still go on TV every hours and issue appeal to their members to present themselves at the nearest police station/hospital for checkup and ask members to strictly follow the guidance and directions of the doctors.

After all, it was their isi stooges who mocked us using gaumutra.
Don't follow China but do your own thing ..

We could start daily Sindhu aarti around Leh/Laddhak where at the end of every day a barrel of gomutra could be released as part of the ceremony into the Indus for all bakistan to consume. Live telecast it for a month to drive home the message and repeat at every poornima/Amavasya just as a reminder.

Very much in line with our ethos and cultural practices as well as getting every baki a sip of gaumutra defacto.

“India’s Strategic Strength - Medicines”

India imports around 90 per cent of APIs used to make antibiotics, 66% of total API are imported from China.


COVID-19 exposes India’s dependence on China for active pharma ingredients




The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has revealed India’s overdependence on China for active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) — also known as bulk drugs — defined by the World Health Organization as any substances used in finished pharmaceutical products.

India’s pharmaceutical industry is the third-largest in the world in terms of volume.

Two-thirds of the total imports of bulk drugs or drug intermediaries, however, come from China, DV Sadananda Gowda, the Union minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers, told the Lok Sabha on February 2020.

India imports around 90 per cent of APIs used to make antibiotics, according to Ashok Madan, the executive director of the Indian Drug Manufacturer Association.

The fear of not receiving the required number of APIs from China was so high that policy makers scrambled to order several measures just before the 21-day nationwide lockdown was announced.

The Union government announced the constitution of a committee under the chairmanship of Eshwara Reddy, Joint Drugs Controller, Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) in March to address the issue of drug security in the country.

It also announced a package to revive the API industry in the country.

The irony in these measures emerged from the fact that the government understood the importance of reviving the industry years ago. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval had warned in 2014 that Chinese dependence of APIs could be a national security threat.

The UPA government had constituted a committee under VM Katoch in 2013 on this issue. The report, submitted in 2015, suggested several measures including the establishment of exclusive parks.

A draft policy had also emerged in 2017 over this. No progress was, however, made on this draft, with nothing changing on ground.

Indian manufacturers had to control pollution and be economically competitive at the same time, according to Reji K Joseph, an associate professor at the Institute for Studies in Industrial Development in New Delhi.

This was why the Indian industry lagged behind China, according to him.

India had exported APIs during the 1990s and was far ahead than China, according to Madan.

China strategically supported its core industry at a time when India had opened up its economy, with private players getting the freedom to either import or locally procure APIs based on economic viability.

The Chinese industry received huge state support, by getting almost no land cost, negligible financial cost, cheap electricity, water and labour and began to dump Penicillin G in India.

Chinese firms outperformed Indian manufacturers like Hindustan Antibiotic in the public sector and private sector enterprises like Torrent Pharmaceuticals Ltd, Alembic Pharma, Southern Petrochemical Industries Corporation Ltd and JK Pharmachem, that were engages in manufacturing Penicillin G.

Manufacturing units in the country still have an edge despite an increase in labour costs because of several reasons, including 10-12 per cent of subsidies in export given by the government that are untraceable, said Madan.

China allowed a relaxation in environmental norms till 2015, when the Beijing Olympics were organized, according to experts.

The first environmental facility inspection in China was conducted in 2015 in Hebei, China’s most-polluted province.

Approximately 150 API manufacturers in China shut their facilities in 2016-18, as a result, according to a white paper published by consultancy firm Beroe in July 2019.

Indian API firms have been under strict scrutiny for pollution, all this while.

The central pollution control board identified the API sector as one among 18 highly-polluting industries in the country.

The Indian industry was forced to follow stringent environmental regulation and fight red tape, according to Madan. The API sector was kept in the same grouping as other chemical industries, according to him.

This crisis led to a slowdown of the industry that found it easier to purchase APIs from China rather than investing in local industry.

Last June I visited few places in Italy, quite a few stores had mainland Chines working as desk clerks / sales people, they were communicating in English and and little bit of Italian.

Second observation, once you step out of the store or any historical place the sidewalks were crowded with Bangladeshis selling trinkets. If you do not buy the junk they would start cursing you in Bengali.

Those Cheenis, those who can afford have left Cheen for good and invested in buying up restaurants, trinket shop, etc others have invested in Hotels in Italy. I too was there and that's what I heard from an Indian restaurant owner in Verona in Italy. Many if not most of the restaurants, carryout places, tourist souvenir shops in all the Touristy spots in Southern Europe is mostly owned by Cheenis.

The many other "so-called" Indian restaurants in Italy, Southern France, Greece, Spain are owned by Pakis who are ashamed of their Paki identity and will put an Indian name on the restaurant or the restaurant will say Indo-pak like the US. A great example is the Jaipur located in Marseille in Southern France, the restaurants in Europe display menu card outside and the give away was Lahori Kebab and Sialkoti biryani. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

US/European victims will file a class action lawsuit for thousands of people dying and additional millions suffering hardship and getting multi trillion dollar award. Chinese govt will not pay up or even contest the case. Can the US govt freeze/nullify the Chinese holdings on its Securities as adjustment of payment for the damages? What option will the chinese have in such a scenario?

Brilliantly said. Our elites are a bunch of useless eunuchs who talk too much and do too little and take this democracy and free speech way too seriously. Even Americans, the so called 'land of free' first and foremost take care of their material interests and then worry about this free speech shit. Even now, I don't see any concerted effort to book the Chinese for unleashing this Corona virus, the capitalists still bank on autocratic China for driving economic growth once the curve flattens which it will in a few weeks or months.

I see that Burqa Bibi is doing some silly 'caring for the poor', drain inspector reporting hit jobs against ModiJi for her mostly Lutyen and western audience. While this may earn her some plaudits and some awards from some bogus journalism foundation frauds in US, she sure is risking her health by not observing social distancing. This Corona virus may not be able to traverse more than 6 ft by air is the conventional wisdom, but too much exposure only increases chances of infection. Just ask those 2 CNN hosts who got infected; both said they observed the cleanliness protocols and for the most part practiced social distancing. But in their job they had to travel, and somehow they got it.

Check the table. 58% cases since March 30 till Apr 8 due to Tablighi Jamaat (TJ) Virus cluster. It has single-handedly resulted in a dangerous, temporary setback to our fight against the epidemic. Inexcusable spread by unthinking Jamaat attendees to far corners of our land.
Table SS in the tweet.

Curious case of Covid data emerging from Mamata Banerjee’s administration:

7 Apr: 60 cases from 9 families

8Apr : 61 cases from 11 families

How does one explain 1 case from 2 families? Lack of transparency around data from Bengal is weakening India’s fight at a crucial time...
There seems to be data fudging from some states but especially WB.

Officials reveal that there are close to 650 cases with high suspicion of the corona virus in Kashmir. High viral load. Brace up for more bad news. Let us stay at home.

Covid related deliveries continue to fly in ... First it was from HK, then Singapore and perhaps SoKo.

MAH is now into serious lockdown.

need to see how far the coalition allows this to succeed.

pappu thackeray seems to be poking his empty head into many matters far beyond either his pathetic abilities or even his very meager understanding.

sitting in on all state and official meetings.

Condemnation of Jamaat's proclivities muted: Manish Tewari
From the report.
Tewari rued that the “condemnation of proclivities of Tablighi Jamat by progressives was muted” in India while “reaction against them was stronger in Pakistan & Islamic Nations.”....
He said if mainstream Muslims do not speak strongly against such incidents then it gives bigots a chance to equate Tablighi Jamaat with all Muslims.


I had to double check whether Manish Tiwari was from the Congress or from the BJP :D :D. Looks like even the "secular" champ - the INC- has now accepted that Tablighi Jamaat and their actions during COVID-19 is not doing good to the Muslim community as well as the "secular" parties. I see that lot of centre of politicos now slowly moving towards the right.

Coronavirus outbreak: Maharashtra HM Deshmukh lambasts Delhi Police over Nizamuddin Markaz event.
The way 'lambasting' (a "secular" way to pass the blame) is done by MH HM, looks like the state government does not have much plans to change the situation on the ground. I don't know for how long they can just make excuses and whine.

bangalore has started to clampdown completely starting initially with some ward wise containment zones along with buffer zones.

a muslim mla of the first few affected wards has supported the clampdown.

Messages are indicating a somewhat similar situation in some of the other states and TN seems to be moving very quickly in this direction.
