The Sindh High Court (SHC) instructed the PPP-led provincial government of Sindh to review its decision to keep the beauty parlours and hair salons closed across the province.
A judge of the high court, Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar, in his remarks, said that the Sindh government should make the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the beauty parlours and hair salons. The judge further added that if they don’t follow the SOPs issued by the government then they could be closed again.
During the hearing of the case, the judge of the Sindh High Court asked the additional advocate general of Sindh as to why the beauty parlours and hair salons were still closed even after the government of Sindh allowed the traders to resume the business activities.
The additional advocate general of Sindh told the high court that the experts believe that opening of the beauty parlours and hair salons could cause a spike in the cases of the coronavirus.
He further said that there was no restriction on the beauty parlours and hair salons to provide the home services during the lockdown due to the coronavirus.
