It’s being said that if cases of infections keep increasing in this manner, then it will become very difficult for Central and state governments to end the lockdown on April 14. Amid this, Delhi’s L-G Anil Baijal has appealed to people to stay at home on the occasion of Shab-e-Barat and offer prayers for the safety of their family members. The Sunni Waqf Board and Shia Central Waqf Board have also appealed to people not to step out of their homes on Shab-e-Barat. During this period, cemeteries and mosques will be closed and people will not be allowed to go there. Similarly, preparations for the annual Karaga festival were underway at the Shri Dharmaraya Swamy Temple in Karnataka’s Bengaluru, which has now been cancelled after a High Court order.
