Maulana Salman Hussain Nadvi, a former member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board released a 37-minute video expressing his views, said the kingdom has always been a “loyal puppet” at the hands of “zionists powers” and is now  slowly showing its real face to the world in delusion.

The Tablighi Jamaat founded by Muhammad Ilyas al-Kandhlawi in 1927 is a Sunni Islamic missionary movement that urges Muslims to return to a pure form of Sunni Islam and be religiously observant. It is spread across 150 countries with 400 million followers.

 The reason for the ban of Tablighi by Saudi Arabia is unclear as of now.
