farmers protest tablighi jamaat

Chief Justice of India Sharad A. Bobde on Thursday voiced the Supreme Court’s apprehension that mass gatherings of protesting farmers will lead to a “problem similar to the Tablighi Jamaat congregation” in March last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Same problem will arise from the farmers’ protest… Don’t know if they are protected from COVID-19… You must tells us what is happening,” Chief Justice Bobde, heading a three-judge Bench, addressed Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, for the Centre.

“We will find out the status,” Mr. Mehta responded.
