Amritsar Jama Masjid worshippers flout Covid-19 restrictions

Surprising pictures came from Amritsar in Punjab during this period. Namazis can be seen gathering in a large crowd here

Due to the dreadful second wave of coronavirus in India, while the Punjab administration issued guidelines for observing Eid, in many places, these were strictly followed, and at some places, the security forces were deployed and the people were not allowed to assemble in crowds. The Jama Masjid of Amritsar in Punjab stood out as an eyesore as was Hyderabad in Telangana yesterday due to Eid shopping. Namazis can be seen gathering in a large crowd here.

In the pictures released by News agency ANI, one can see Muslims offering salah (namaz) in a huge crowd without following any Covid-19 rules. This picture is of Jama Masjid Khairuddin Hall Bazaar in Amritsar. These people gathered here on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.

A similar picture was seen outside the Jama Masjid in Ludhiana. The crowd was thinner than that in Amritsar, though. But in the video here too, the faces of many worshippers on the road are seen without the protective masks on. Two children without masks are seen in the video.

A picture has surfaced of AIMIM Syed Sohail Qadri. Syed wrote in his tweet, “Talking for cooperation under the leadership of Asaduddin Owaisi Saheb to offer Eid ul Fitr prayers on the Eranigalli Masjid-e-Sardar Yar Jung of Panjesha.” In the pictures, Syed is seen talking to the police. Some other people are also seen in kurta hats around them.

Significantly, the guidelines issued to prevent congestion due to Covid-19 epidemic have been violated for the last several days. Just yesterday, people who came out on Eid shopping reached the market and flouted many rules. Neither was social distancing followed nor did people wear masks.

Before the lockdown in Hyderabad’s Charminar area, Eid shoppers did bot care for social distancing. Many seemed to presume a distance of two feet between adjacent people was enough to save oneself from the contagion.

Thousands of Muslims thronged Bhendi Bazaar of Mumbai too. Even in Firozabad, Uttar Pradesh, people went out for shopping. Muslims crowded Seelampur in Delhi as well.
