Significantly, Dharavi was in the news due to the fast growing cases at the beginning of the corona epidemic, but local clerics have had a big hand in reducing the cases of corona in the area. In Muslim-dominated areas, clerics roam around and appeal to the people to follow all the rules to protect the corona, which is also seeing its effect. Local cleric Majdub Ansari said, “We try to convince people that to understand this disease, we have to fight it, otherwise we will face problems on a large scale.” The initiative of spreading the message of rescue to the people through the clerics has got good results. Asif Bhamla, president of the Bhamla Foundation, says that initially we started a team of 10 clerics and saw that the elders were understanding and giving importance to them. Seeing the positive response, we gradually increased the team and got a good change.
