Abdur Rehman(45) has become the first Tablighi Jamaat member in Maharashtra to donate his plasma for treatment of another COVID-19 patient, after he recovered from corona virus in Mumbai. Notably Abdur donated his plasma after breaking a day long Ramzan fast.
“Plasmapheresis” — removal, treatment, and return or exchange of blood plasma — the machine has been installed at Mumbai’s Nair Hospital. The convalescent plasma therapy aims at using antibodies from the blood of a recovered Covid-19 patient to treat those infected.
Residing in Kamathipura in South Mumbai, Abdur Rehman, donated his plasma at BYL Nair Hospital, where he was admitted earlier. He was diagnosed with novel coronavirus on 21 March 21. After being treated at the Kasturba Hospital for a week, he was discharged on March 31.
Rehman said that he decided to donate plasma in response to an appeal by Tablighi Jamaat Markaz chief Maulana Saad’s to come forward and participate in the process in large numbers. I received a call from the Nair Hospital asking me to donate plasma so that people who are undergoing treatment can be helped. So I decided to donate plasma. The process is simple and not at all painful.
He said that he donated plasma as a duty of humanity and added that the issue of Markaz congregation was being politicized by some people to create problems. Those wanting to create a Hindu-Muslim communal divide was creating a problem. We want to send a message from the Muslim community and Jamaat that we believe in humanity
There had been a furore across the country after the Markaz congregation at Nizamuddin in Delhi and subsequent spread of COVID-19. The congregation was attended by Muslim devouts from nearly 18 countries. Most of the members overstayed and visited various parts of the country. Members of Tablighi Jamaat are at the receiving end of the nation’s ire for spreading the deadly novel coronavirus across the nation.
The Maharashtra government alone has taken a stern action against 156 foreign nationals who have been over staying in violation of Visa regulations.
In the meanwhile the number of COVID 19 positive cases has scaled up to 9318 with 400 deaths in Maharashtra.
