Prayers can be offered in mosques with precautionary measures: Sheikh Rasheed
LAHORE (92 News) – Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed said that prayers can be offered in mosques with precautionary measures.
Talking to the media on Saturday, he said that the 50-200 people can offer prayers in a mosque while having some distance.
He said that he had proposed to the prime minister to give financial assistance to mosques.
Sheikh Rasheed said that now the sugar issue is not an easy matter. “Jahangir Tareen was a key part of the PTI. If Imran Khan keeps himself away from Jahangir Tareen, he can also maintain the distance with other ministers as well,” he said.
He said that the prime minister will play the final round of the reports on IPP, sugar and loans. “Any minister involved in corruption will be punished,” he added.
He said that Shehbaz Sharif evaded the NAB arrest due to his ‘exorcise’. “The cases of Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz are very serious. Shehbaz Sharif will have to go to London or jail,” he added.
The minister claimed that the railway had not delayed the salary or pension of a labourer. “Tableeghi Jamaat people are being targeted in India and some people are conspiring against Tableeghi Jamaat people in Pakistan as well,” he said.
Sheikh Rasheed said that Murad Ali Shah should not indulge in confrontation as it is not time for it. “Nations unite during difficult time,” he said.
He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan will punish the people behind the wheat and sugar crisis. “The railway department is suffering a loss up to Rs1 billion due to suspension of the trains,” he added.
