In the wake of fear of third wave of coronavirus, Shahi imam Fatehpuri mosque Dr Mufti Mukarram Ahmed released a video message urging people to avoid overcrowding at mosques and follow government ordered guidelines while celebrating the festival of Eid al-Adha. He said celebrations should be similar to how Eid ul Fitr was celebrated two months ago taking care of all precautions where many people prayed at home due to lockdown. Mufti Mukarram stressed that coronavirus is still very much a threat and it should not be taken lightly. He said all guidelines issued by the government and health experts need to be fully adhered to and any overcrowding at mosques should be strictly avoided.
