Islamabad: A case has been registered against Pakistani cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz and six others for disobeying a government order imposed against prayer congregations to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, it was reported on Sunday.

According to the police, Aziz gathered people at Islamabad’s famous Lal Masjid for Friday prayers despite a ban on prayer congregations imposed by the Pakistan government, reports Dawn news, adding that he provoked the sentiments of people.

The police said that officials deployed around the mosque informed the cleric of the ban on prayer congregations and the misuse of loudspeakers, but he ignored.

Around 400 people gathered at the mosque. A police officer told Dawn news that no arrests have been made in the case so far.

The capital administration has asked the police to compile data on mosques, the person who delivers the sermon during Friday prayers and imams who violated the ban. (IANS)
