By Noor | 4 Apr, 2020

Police officials were attacked in Karachi after they tried to stop people from praying in mosques.

After the exponential increase in infected Coronavirus patients, the lockdown enforcement in Sindh intensified. The province is strictly being monitored for following the instructions given in reference to the lockdown. While authorities are advising citizens to protect themselves by staying at home, a rather unfortunate lockdown-related incident occurred recently.

A prayer leader in one of the mosques in Karachi allegedly provoked people to attack the police officers who were trying to stop them from praying inside the mosque

As per the orders by the local government, the law enforcement agencies were instructed to ensure that not more than 5 people enter the mosques. Congregational prayer gatherings were banned including the jummah prayers but the lead imam in one of the mosques in Liaquatabad, Karachi allegedly urged people to assault the police officers.

According to the Karachi police chief, the involved people have been arrested under the charge of violating the lockdown. He added to his statement by saying that further proof is required to verify the authenticity of the case.

Soon after the incident, people on social media started sharing videos of what happened

The video shows a crowd of people madly running after the police officers. It can also be seen that the officers are subjected to the pelting of stones.

Short clips covering the mistreatment of the cops became the topic of concern and conversation

The public, in general, condemned the act and explained that the police officers in the entire country were being targeted

The act was termed shameful

People argued that the lack of knowledge and rampant misinformation regarding the virus is proving to be deadly
