Tablighi Jamaat Members Misbehave With Medical Staff In Kanpur, Prompt Hospital To Remove Female Staff: ReportTablighi Jamaat 

Some Tablighi Jamaat members who were admitted to Lala Lajpat Rai Hospital in Uttar Pradesh (UP)’s Kanpur allegedly refused to take medication while also misbehaving with doctors and nurses, India Today reported.

The hospital administration, following the alleged act by the Jamaatis, had to call off the female staff members from the ward they were in, said an official on Saturday (4 April).

According to chief medical officer Ashok Shukla, six out of 22 Jamaat members had been tested positive with Covid-19. All 22 people were admitted on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

Aarti Lalchandani, a senior doctor at the hospital, said, "Our team is engaged in providing healthcare services to those admitted here. They were told not to spit in the hospital, but they refuse to accept our instructions. They spit on their hands and then touch staircase railings. They also misbehaved with the doctors."

They are also demanding non-vegetarian food and refusing to eat rice, dal, and paneer given to them. They also demand good clothes and better facilities.

"However, with police intervention, the situation has now come under control," she said.

They are among the thousands who attended a religious congregation at Tablighi Jamaat''s New Delhi headquarters, now being seen as a Coronavirus hotspot.
