 The Religious Affairs Ministry in an emergency circular said yesterday that no meeting or rally will be allowed before prayers and after munajat in mosques or any other place of worship.  The decision was taken considering the increase in Covid-19 cases across the country at an alarming rate, the circular said, reports Banglanews24, Daily Sun.
