Muslim body urges not to hold iftars, pray for corona warriors

Panaji, April 23 : The Association of All Goa Muslim Jamaats on Thursday issued a pre-Ramzan advisory urging Muslims in the state not to organise community iftars and pray for frontline health workers, police and those involved in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the Jamaat urged community members to strictly follow government directives related to the ongoing lockdown and restrict movement outside homes and to follow social distancing norms.

"No iftar should be held at any masjids across the state of Goa.

Do not arrange iftar parties at home or neighbourhood localities for relatives and others," the advisory stated.

"In these trying times please remember the entire Ummah, our nation, all the doctors, the frontline health workers, police and all involved in fighting this pandemic in your duas (prayers)," the advisory said.
