India has made it clear that 2,550 foreign Tablighi Jamaat (Islamic Preachers) activists, who took part in the Nizamuddin congregation in March this year, will not be able to receive any kind of visa for the next 10 years, ensuring a complete ban to their travel to the country. The decision comes as around 50-60% of the COVID-19 cases in most Indian states are claimed to have consisted of either Islamic activists or their contacts.
