The government on Monday issued some directives asking people to offer Eid prayer at their nearest mosques instead of Eidgah and open spaces maintaining recommended health guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Religious Affairs Ministry issued some directives in this regard.
It also suggested disinfecting mosques before the Eid prayer and not rolling out carpets on the floors.
The devotees have been asked to bring prayer mats from home. Besides, arrangements should be made at the entrances of the mosques for washing hands, it said.
