Female Police Officer Enforcing Ban On Jummah Prayers Beaten Up By Mob In Karachi
KARACHI: A female police officer was attacked by a mob of violent men at Jamia Masjid Haqqani, Orangi Town, as she went to arrest those violating the lockdown imposed by the government for the prevention of coronavirus. Sharafat, a sub inspector at the Sindh Police active force duty, was scuffled by scores of religiously charged men, as shown in the video.
The Orangi town mosque has been notorious for religious extremism and did not follow the orders of avoiding a public gathering, calling for hundreds of men in congregation for the Friday prayers.
Sindh police has been facing difficulties in ensuring the Covid-19 prevention ban on congregational prayers. Last week, on Friday, there were reports of people defying restrictions and entering mosques for the prayers en-masse.
