Don't fast if too hot this Ramazan: Tahir Ashrafi
“If a doctor says that your life is threatened due to the scorching heat, or you have a medical condition and it is going to get worse due to the fasting, then you can skip the daily fast,” he said, adding that, "If any area of Pakistan is hit by extreme heat during Ramazan, which began June 7, the council will remind followers of that flexibility in public service media announcements."
In Sindh, temperatures have already hit 52 C in Larkana, with Jacobabad and Moenjodaro just slightly cooler, according to the Pakistan Meteorological Department. Lahore lags behind Karachi despite a high temperature of 46 C being recorded in early June.
To curb the severity of weather, 179 heatstroke centers have already been opened to facilitate the heat-stricken community. Authorities have confirmed that proper planning would help citizens brave the torrid conditions this summer.
