Crowd manhandles policemen for enforcing Friday prayers restrictions in Liaquatabad Karachi.

At least 7 people were arrested after members of a police party were manhandled by a mob for enforcing restrictions on Friday prayer congregations amid the coronavirus lockdown in Karachi’s Liaquatabad neighbourhood, police officials and witnesses said.

The Sindh government had announced a complete lockdown from noon to on Friday, advising people not to come out of their houses for Juma prayers. Provincial Local Government Minister Nasir Hussain Shah had said only 3 to 5 people would be allowed to pray in mosques.

Heavy contingents of police and Rangers were deployed outside mosques to prevent people from congregating for Friday prayers, with police officials claiming that coronavirus lockdown measures and bans on congregational prayers were largely followed throughout the province, with just one incident of violence happening in Karachi’s Liaquatabad.
