The Sindh government’s decision is being hailed by commentators on social media who say that the province is leading from the front in the country’s fight against coronavirus.
So Sindh takes the lead in banning jumma and congregational prayers. Will other provinces follow?

Sindh's bold decision regarding Jummah prayer is commendable as we are entering into crucial phase of the pandemic. I don't understand why the federal govt is hiding behind Mufti Muneeb? #coronavirusoubreak
