Muslims flout lockdown amidst pandemic

Owing to the Coronavirus pandemic, several areas in the country have been under temporary lockdown. Mass gatherings and mass-prayers in Mosques, like all religious places, have been restricted. In several states, local authorities are in constant touch with Mosque clerics and Imams to create awareness among the Muslim community over the pandemic. Amidst the lockdown in March, Muslims reportedly gathered in large numbers across the country to offer the Friday Mass prayer. Earlier, a video emerged where Karnataka police were seen thrashing people as they left the Mosque after Namaz, and were violating the lockdown. In the video, a group of Muslims could be seen coming out of the Mosque after offering Namaz. At that point, the police took action against the congregation in the bid to disperse the crowd that was violating the lockdown.
