I request the authorities in WAPDA to refrain from causing power outages during dawn and Fajr and on Fridays between 1-2 p.m, which are the prayer timings. I hope concerned authorities will take due notice of it as it causes a lot of inconvenience to millions of people who do not have UPS or generators either at home or in mosques.
