The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) held an important meeting with the federal minister for religious affairs and provinces.
During the meeting, it was decided that Mosques across Pakistan will remain open during Ramadan with strict adherence to COVID-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs).
In this regard, the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony said Thursday announced that during Ramadan Mosques will remain open across the country for Taraweeh prayers and Khatam-e-Quran.
Noorul Haq Qadri Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony said that mosques will remain open and prayers will take place during Ramadan, but they will be allowed subject to the 20-point agreement between stakeholders.
However, if during Ramadan, government authorities feel that the situation has got worsen due to the number of covid-19 cases spike, the authorities might review the decisions taken.
