Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, while addressing a press conference along with Mufti Taqi Usmani, Allama Rashid Soomro, Maulana Anas Noorani and other Ulema of various schools of thought said lockdown will no longer apply to mosques because PM Imran Khan has advised to consider ground realities while following lockdown.

He also demanded that bills of mosques and religious institutions should be forgiven and urged the state to help and support Muslims all over the country.
