Anti Covid-19 SOPs in mosques during Ramazan

ISLAMABAD: The standard operating procedures (SOPs) against coronavirus would be implemented in letter and spirit in mosques in the holy month of Ramazan-ul-Mubarak aiming to curb the spread of pandemic.

Special Aide to Prime Minister on Religious Harmony and Middle East Hafiz Muhammad Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi announced on Sunday while talking to media.

He said mosques would not be closed during the month of Ramazan and urged scholars and leaders of all schools of thought and sects to take precautionary measures during the month of Ramadan in mosques and adhere following 20 point guidelines agreed between the government and ulema to keep Coronavirus at bay.

The third wave of Coronavirus was extremely dangerous and everyone should ensure safety of others by seeking forgiveness to Allah and following preventive measures.

Ashrafi said that the registration of any madrassa or mosque was not being canceled.

The process of consultation with the Ulema-Mashaykh was underway regarding the Waqf Property Act.

Registration of seminaries has started with the Ministry of Education, and if the head of a madrassa or mosque has a complaint against any official for registration process, he can contact the office of Hafiz Muhammad Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi.

Replying to a question, Ashrafi said that the government would gift the nation celebrating one-Eid and starting same day Ramadan adding that the meeting of Ruet-e-Hilal Committee had been summoned in Peshawar to resolve differences on crescent sighting.

The sole purpose of convening crescent sighting body meeting was to end the differences over the start of Ramazan.

To another question, he appealed traders to reduce the margin of profit in honor of Ramazan and benefit the nation against hoarding and inflation.

However, it is quite clear that no trader is going to pay any heed to Ashrafi’s appeal. Right from the fruit dealers to sugar mafia to garments all are hoarding to augment the prices during Ramazan. | YouTube Channel
