NEW DELHI: Minority affairs minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Thursday announced that a nationwide campaign will be launched by social and educational institutions to “curb and crush rumours and apprehensions spread by nefarious and vested interests” about the anti-Covid vaccines and encorage people to take the shots.
During a meeting at Haj House in Mumbai, Naqvi said state Haj committees, waqf boards, their associated organisations, the central waqf council, Maulana Azad Education Foundation and other social and educational institutions will be part of the campaign—‘ Jaan Hai To Jahaan Hai’— to be launched especially in villages and remote areas. He said women self help groups will also be included in the campaign. Naqvi said that “unfortunately some narrow-minded elements are creating confusion and fear on Corona vaccination. They are not only enemies of health and well-being of the people but also of the country. We have to remain cautious of such people”.
