The foreign nationals who attended a religious event at Delhi's Nizamuddin in March were "virtually" persecuted and blamed for spreading coronavirus as part of a propaganda, the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court observed on Friday, dismissing cases filed against 29 foreigners. It also commented that they were made "scapegoat" by political governments. Hundreds of people - both foreigners and locals - were tested positive for coronavirus after they had either attended the Tablighi Jamaat event or had come in contact with the followers of the Islamic sect. Visa violation cases were registered against the foreign nationals who had attended the congregation. The event had turned out to be the biggest coronavirus cluster in the country.
