Pertinent to mention here , Omar Abdullah on Tuesday took to Twitter and wrote , “At first glance it would appear the #TablighiJaamat were nothing if not irresponsible in the way they went about things but that is not unique to them. The majority of muslims in india have heeded government guidelines and advice the same as anyone else.
In his another tweet he said , For the record this was a statement put out by them clearfying their position and the steps taken by them , the stink of communalism in a lot of the critisism is nauseating.
In Another Tweet Omar Abdullah said , important to read the statement that was put out by Tabligi Jamaat clearfying all the steps they took to implement Govt guidelines. I tried to get in a format I could share directly here but that wasn’t possible so sharing this tweet instead.
