“We also demand that mosques be opened so than we can offer namaz twice a day during Eid. I believe that when we will apologise in the mosques, pray for coronavirus to end, God will listen to our prayers and the situation will improve,” he said.
Public gatherings, especially in religious places where social distancing cannot be maintained, are still prohibited in India owing to the rising cases of coronavirus.
