ONE hundred and fifty Malaysians used tourist visas to attend a tabligh event in New Delhi, which is now India’s biggest domestic source of Covid-19 cases, reports the Hindustan Times.

The 150 were among 2,000 foreigners from at least 70 countries who arrived on tourist visas to take part in the Tablighi Jamaat movement’s work across India since January 1. Indian immigration rules prohibit participation in religious activity while on a tourist visa.
