Indonesian Foreign Ministry Repatriates Indonesian Jemaah Tabligh Followers in India

The Indonesian Foreign Ministry has repatriated 16 Indonesian followers of the Jemaah Tabligh [JT] religious organization from India, a year after they were forced to prolong their stay in the country since the onset of the Covid-19 global pandemic.

“The 16 Indonesian nationals arrived in Jakarta on a Garuda Indonesia flight [from India]. They have undergone PCR and are currently starting a five day quarantine, in line with current health protocols,” the ministry said in a press release.

“Their return makes them the last of the 751 [Indonesian] Jemaah Tabligh members to be repatriated to Indonesia.”

The Ministry’s efforts to repatriate Jemaah Tabligh members have been a prolonged process, as Indian authorities started legal proceedings against them for offenses ranging from visa violations to spreading Covid-19 following their participation in the Tabligh, or Islamic rally in April, 2020.

The Indonesian Jemaah Tabligh members joined their counterparts from dozens of countries including Brunei, Iran and Pakistan for the rally.

At least one Indonesian national died during the group’s prolonged stay in India, while another two managed to continue traveling to Saudi Arabia.
