After the Contact Tracing across 17 states the Centre has traced approx. 1,023 cases of COVID-19 to Tablighi Jamaat congregation; a religious congregation that took place in Nizamuddin Markaz Mosque in Delhi. Reportedly, it accounts for a 30% source of spread of the virus across states of which Tamil Nadu is the worst affected. This is because, out of 386 cases, 259 of the cases in TN attended the event.

Due to their uncontrollable violence and misbehaviors, the National Security Act was invoked against them by the UP Government. The NSA extends to the whole of India which empowers the Central and State Governments to invoke the act to maintain public order.
