KARACHI - Sindh Minister for Information and Local Government Syed Nasir Hussain Shah has said that the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Eid-ul-Azha have been given final shape.

Nasir expressed these views while briefing about the steps taken for Eid-ul-Azha, said a statement on Wednesday.

The Sindh Minister said the federal government had formulated a policy to promote collective sacrifices on Eid-ul-Azha, which would apply to all provinces.

In Sindh, PPP have also taken steps to organize mass sacrifices at specific places under the guidelines given by the federal government, which will allow for the sacrifice of the individual at specific places in all districts and to arrange sacrifices at each UC level.

All deputy commissioners, MCs and municipal representatives will take steps to prevent the trend of individual sacrifice under mutual strategy.

According to Nasir Shah, the Solid West department will take the responsibility of bringing the sacrifices to the landfill site and no one will be allowed to sacrifice on the road or highway.

“We have appealed to the public to prioritise the mass sacrifice organized by mosques, imams and schools in our areas to prevent both COVID19 and filth,” the provincial minister said.

Nasir appealed to the public to avoid public gatherings and rush in the wake of the present situation and perform Eid prayers and other duties with caution.
