Chennai: Prince of Arcot, Nawab Mohammed Abdul Ali has said “we are living in a time of divine punishment, by the Almighty God, by facing the present calamity, coronavirus throughout the world.”
In a statement here, he said, “the year 2020 is a sign to turn back to our Creator and we have to be humble in our prayers in asking His forgiveness for our sins, we might have committed, knowingly or unknowingly. This is the only remedy left over for us.”
He added: “How quickly God manifested how weak the creation is. We recognise that, as a society we have failed in every aspect to eradicate the invisible virus. No power on the earth has the control over the Covid-19. The freedom that we had to walk in public to meet people, to travel, our economy, achievements, advancement and so on means nothing in front of the might of God.”
“Our lives seem like an illusion that we used to live. We don’t even know when that change will come. We don’t even know the repercussions of the post Covid world. Many amongst us are facing this disease and have lost family and friends in these last few months. We have yet to see what is going to happen,” he said.
