Earlier, 10 directives for mosque-goers for the weeklong lockdown ending on April 11
As the country is going through the worst spell of the Covid-19 pandemic since it broke out here last year, the government has imposed restrictions on the attendance at religious institutions, aiming to control the worsening situation.
In a circular issued on Wednesday, the Religious Affairs Ministry has banned all kinds of gatherings or rallies before and after prayers at mosques and other religious facilities.
Devotees should conform to the health rules while offering their prayers, including Taraweeh during Ramadan starting in mid-April, according to the circular.
Earlier, the government issued 10 directives for mosque-goers for the weeklong lockdown ending on April 11.
The ministry also requested all to abide by the 18-point charter of directives issued on March 29 and the restrictions as mentioned in the gazette notification for the ongoing lockdown.
Mentionable, Muslims across the country participated in Taraweeh prayers in last Ramadan on a limited scale in order to help curb the spread of Covid-19.
