Centre asks states to remain cautious during Ramzan; ensure no gatherings in mosques

NEW DELHI: The Union Government has asked the states and union territories to remain cautious and ensure that there are no prayer gatherings during the Islamic holy month of Ramzan beginning Thursday in view of the ongoing lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak, officials said.

The Central Government has also asked the state governments and UT administrations to urge Muslim leaders to ask their followers to remain at home.

“Prayers and gatherings at any religious place are prohibited during lockdown and we hope that everyone will abide by the directive,” a senior government official said. (AGENCIES)
