As Arfa Sherwani says, ” Tablighis aren’t the most progressive people in India. Rather very orthodox & rigid.
But we refuse to believe thy’ll harass doctors or molest women. I know them as selfless individuals who leave materialistic world, even their families in service of religion /society.
Most of the fake news attributed to Tableegh Jamaat is already debunked. You can refer our previous article Fake Alert: Long List of Islamophobic fake news which is going viral during Coronavirus Pandemic and help each other to Burst Fake News Propaganda Spread for Political Gains.

One is free to criticize their way of life or thinking.
Recent Corona incident shows they are blinded by religion as most religious people (irrespective of what religion they follow) in India are.
No more, no less.
But they do not deserve this treatment by media.
In the guise of ‘fighting Corona’,and ‘exposing’ Tablighi Jamat,media is targeting the entire Muslim community.

Stop this Propoganda Now.
