The Nizamuddin Markaz event, held in mid-March, is linked to nearly one-fifth of the total COVID-19 cases in India. Out of the 2,902 cases recorded so far, over 650 are linked to the Tablighi Jamaat. Out of the total 68 deaths, 15 are related to the Jamaat event, the Health Ministry said.

The Markaz event organisers, in their defence, said the congregation was called between March 13-15 — nearly nine days before the Centre had imposed the nationwide lockdown. The Delhi government, however, charged them of violating a March 13 order issued in the national capital territory which barred all forms of mass gatherings.
