ISLAMABAD (92 News) - President Dr Arif Alvi and Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan have congratulated the nation and the Muslim community on the advent of the holy month of Ramadan.

In his message, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the purpose of fasting is to induce a sense of abstinence, piety, and kindness in a person.

"These days, humanity is suffering from the ravages of the pandemic," the PM said. "Therefore, the government has formulated the coronavirus standard operating procedures (SOPs) for Taraweeh and Itikaf prayers during Ramadan."

The PM added that the nation has to face this critical situation together by taking special care of the needy.

In his message, President Arif Alvi said that the month of Ramadan provides people with the opportunity to live a cautious life. He also insisted people follow the government's coronavirus SOPs during Ramadan to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.

"The third wave of coronavirus is more intense and dangerous than ever before, the president said. "The government, in consultation with religious scholars, have formulated special SOPs for mosques."

"Keep a distance of three feet from other people when offering prayers in mosques," the president said, adding that the Ulema also suggest people perform ablution at home and carry their own prayer mats to the mosques to minimise the spread of COVID-19.
