The Program Manager, Imran Bin Khalil, said is a Press Statement that, "AIDCA strongly condemns the unjust behavior of Media, the Right Wing and the Government, even after the Markaz Nizamuddin, Global Headquarters of Tabligi Jamaat, issued a press release and clarified that they have not violated any prohibitory orders of the government."

It says that the blame put on Tabligi Jamat and Social trends against it is the result of 'Islamophobia'. "This hate didn’t allow them to concentrate on the solutions to get rid of this epidemic disease, rather to put all the efforts on how to blame the Muslim community for the spread of the disease. With half-baked truth the media started bombarding shows and social media started trending hashtags against the Muslims like #CoronaJihad, etc." the Press Release said.

Below is the full Press Statement:


In the Name of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
Press Statement 1st April 2020
At the time when the world is united to fight against the pandemic corona virus, the Indian media is committed to play the communal game of Islamophobia and blame the Muslims of India for spread of the pandemic COVID-19.
Since few years there is a drastic increase in Islamophobia in India, especially the media houses. The Right-Wing has come up openly and is committed to attack the minorities, especially Muslims – online and offline. This led to the numerous deaths in the name of cow, Muslim identity, various types of jihad, and especially designed state-sponsored pogrom.
This hate didn’t allow them to concentrate on the solutions to get rid of this epidemic disease, rather to put all the efforts on how to blame the Muslim community for the spread of the disease. With half-baked truth the media started bombarding shows and social media started trending hashtags against the Muslims like #CoronaJihad, etc.
The way media reports on Tablighi Jamaat and Islam plays a role in the spread of Islamophobia. The state and Central government not only refuses to recognize a proposed workable definition of Islamophobia, but also allows anti-Muslim bigots to fill its ranks, evidently.
In fact, the contagion is being used to fuel anti-Islamic sentiments. The mainstreaming of fascist media, political discourse and some major publications like The Economist have had no qualms about equating the novel coronavirus with terms like 'jihad' or with stereotypical caricatures of Muslims — as portrayed in a cartoon published by one of India's leading newspapers The Hindu.
AIDCA strongly condemns the unjust behavior of Media, the Right Wing and the Government, even after the Markaz Nizamuddin, Global Headquarters of Tabligi Jamaat, issued a press release and clarified that they have not violated any prohibitory orders of the government.
AIDCA demands the State and Central Government to immediately take strict action against those who maliciously spread venom against the Muslims and the Tabligi Jamaat and try to paint the pandemic corona virus with the Muslim identity. AIDCA stands with the Tabligi Jamaat in this dire situation and urges the Government to drop the unjust charges levied against the Tabligi Jamaat and Maulana Saad.
O Allah, we ask you to restrain them by their necks and we seek refuge in you from their evil. (Sunan Abu Dawood)
O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do. (Quran 5:8)
