No Youm-e-Ali processions in Pakistan this year: NCOC
ISLAMABAD – The government has announced a ban on Youm-e-Ali processions across Pakistan in the wake of the third intensive wave of coronavirus pandemic.
Pakistan's top monitoring body on Saturday imposed a ban on Yaum-e-Ali processions whereas majalis will be permitted under strict Standard operating procedures - which are already in place for the ongoing sacred month of Ramadan.
The decision was taken in the NCOC meeting which was attended by Planning Minister Asad Umar and Lit-Gen Hamoodur Rehman. Provincial chief secretaries also attended the meeting via video link.
According to the latest update, majalis can only be held for a limited time. In case of non-compliance with SOPs, the organisers of the majalis will be held accountable.
