BHOPAL: City qazi has appealed to all Muslims besides clerics not to allow gatherings at mosques. The appeal was released after a meeting with district administration on Wednesday.

After district administration decided to restrict gatherings at religious places to stop spread of corona pandemic, city qazi Mushtaq Ali Nadwi made an appeal to head clerics of mosques to spread awareness that people should stop coming to mosques for regular prayers.

“As per government decision, not more than five people should gather in mosques for prayers. Even community prayer for Eid-ul-Azha will be held at homes,” he said. Eid-ul-Azha will be celebrated on August 1.

One should not forget that the world is facing an unprecedented situation and one should take all precautions to control spread of corona virus. Nadwi further said he had asked Imams of all mosques to spread the word and create awareness among people to control corona.

Another meeting will be held with district administration before Sunday to discuss the details of Eid-ul-Azha celebrations. A protocol is being prepared about sacrificial offerings to be made on Eid-ul-Azha. This will be widely publicised so that COVID-19 guidelines are followed strictly as people make offerings.
