Sindh Gives Nod to Shab-e-Qadar, Eid Congregational Prayers

KARACHI: Sindh information minister Nasir Hussain Shah on Wednesday said that congregational prayers for Shab-e-Qadar, as well as Eid morning prayers, will be observed across Sindh with all necessary safety precautions enforced.

Shah said that ulema of various schools of thought will be consulted for the successful implementation of the decision, as he addressed a press conference in Karachi alongside law adviser Murtaza Wahab and education minister Saeed Ghani.

Speaking of the federal government’s Tiger Force, which has begun volunteer work in the capital, Shah said he does not agree with the use of the word ‘Tiger’ in the coining of the name.

“There is nothing but bluster surrounding the Force […] they will likely not make a real impact,” said Shah, adding that they will welcome any force willing to make an actual difference.

The information minister said that the federal government “only finds faults in Sindh”. He said that the Centre’s wish to have a governor’s rule imposed in Sindh “has been a longstanding wish of theirs”.
