The federal and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) governments have decided to place all Tableeghi Jamaat members in quarantine in the mosques where they operate. The step has been taken to contain the spread of coronavirus.

The newspaper quoted a senior government official, who attended the meeting which took the decision, as saying that there would be collaboration among all governments to ensure that the plan works out successfully. The source further said that tests samples of the mosques where the said individuals will live will also be taken, adding that provision of ration to them will be the administration’s responsibility.
