KARACHI: The Pakistani province of Sindh saw a decisive lockdown during the hours of the Friday Islamic prayers, implemented against all odds, by the “progressive, forward-thinking, modern” government of the province led by Pakistan People’s Party’s Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah.

Citizens from educated segments of society praised the Sindh government as “progressive, forward-thinking, modern” for the strict lockdown for Jumma (Friday) prayer hours today, from 12pm and 3pm, during which people were prohibited from commuting and congregating in groups of more than five people.

Furthermore, Murad Ali Shah had said that only the administration of mosques (3-5 persons) would be allowed to say taraweeh prayers in the mosque during Ramzan.

The CM said, “We made the decision in consultation with medical experts. I request clerics to cooperate with the government. Mosques will stay open and Taraweeh prayers will be offered as usual but only the staff will be allowed to participate,” the provincial chief executive said.

Murad Shah said that the next two weeks were critical vis a vis the COVID-19 pandemic and there would be a stricter lockdown for that period.
