Ijaz Shah Interior Minister Brigadier (retd) said that no new strategy related to coronavirus will be provided for the last 10 days of Ramadan.
According to him, all the Ulemas have agreed that the Eid prayers will not be offered inside the mosques but rather in open space.
The Interior Minister says that even if a single person goes to offer the Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, it will be equal to the entire locality attending it.
He further requested to allow only a minimum number of people to sit for Aitekaf in a single mosque.
The upper-class people asked to extend the lockdown but on the other hand, there is the lower class community that is experiencing all the hunger and other major crises are requesting to ease down the restriction in the lockdown.
Earlier this month, Arif Alvi President Pakistan announced a 20-point agenda after consulting the ulema for Taraweeh prayers according to which the mosques were allowed to remain open but people will have to exercise all the safety points.
President Alvi asked every citizen to follow all safety measures. He also encouraged people by saying that only those countries succeed where the citizens follow rules by their own will rather than getting forced.
He also said that if the government and Islamic scholars have agreed on a consensus over something for instance, the precautionary rules during Taraweeh Prayers, it is necessary for every citizen to follow them.
Arif Alvi also asked people to increase the number of financial contributions in the form of sadaqah and zakat and pray for the people living in the occupied Kashmir in the holy month of Ramadan.
