The Punjab government has banned Aitkaaf in mosques amid rising coronavirus cases in the province, the Punjab Auqaf and Religious Affairs Department announced Saturday.

Aitkaaf is a period of retreat in a mosque for a certain number of days in accordance with a Muslim’s own wish. It is mostly observed during the last 10 days of Ramazan.

The Punjab Auqaf and Religious Affairs Department said the decision to ban Aitkaaf was taken in view of the coronavirus situation.

Pakistan is currently battling a raging third wave of coronavirus, with Punjab reporting the highest number of deaths and new cases.

The province reported 2,068 new cases and 90 deaths in the last 24 hours.
