Back in February, Hadi Al-Modarresi, who is based in Iran, said that the Coronavirus outbreak which started in China, was “undoubtedly an act by Allah (God) that is divine punishment against the Chinese for their mistreatment, mockery, and disrespect for Muslims and Islam in China.”
Summit News “It is obvious that the spread of this virus is an act of Allah. How do we know this? The spread of the coronavirus began in China, an ancient and vast country, the population of which makes up one seventh of humanity,” said Al-Modarresi.
It is now being reported that Al-Modarresi has contracted coronavirus, meaning that Allah must obviously be punishing him for wrongdoing.
Twitter users reacted with little in the way of sympathy.
“Allah 0 – coronavirus 1,” remarked one.
“He shows a great capacity for convoluted reasoning. Of course it is all based on 7th century logic,” added another.
