Srinagar- Mutahida Majlis-e-Ulema, a conglomerate of religious bodies of J&K, headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Wednesday urged people to not to hide their travel history for the fear of quarantine, saying such an act was a great disservice to their families and the community in large.
In a statement issued here, the conglomerate appealed people with travel history to report before the concerned quarters instead of concealing the facts or lying about it, due to fear of mandatory quarantine.
“Such people are doing a great disservice to themselves, their families, neighbourhood and the community at large which amounts to an act of transgression before Allah,” the amalgam’s spokesperson said.
“They put themselves and all those with whom they came into contact at greater risk. Because of not revealing their travel history, it puts greater pressure on our medical fraternity and all concerned working so hard to contain the pandemic,” he added.
