New Delhi, Apr 26: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday exhorted the people to continue being careful and taking the right precautions during holy month of Ramadan.
In his monthly programme “Mann Ki Baat” broadcast all over the country, he noted that while celebrating Ramadan the previous time, no one would have thought that there would be so many difficulties during Ramadan this time. “This time, let us pray that the world may be freed from the Coronavirus by the time of Eid,” he urged.
He focused on the situation prevailing in the country due to COVID-19 outbreak and asked that social distancing be maintained while observing Ramadan.
“It is still very important to follow the rules of physical distancing in the streets, in the markets and in the mohallas or colonies. Today, I also express my gratitude to all those community leaders who are making people aware about the two yards distancing and not going out of the houses,” he said.
Noting that the Coronavirus had changed the manner of celebrating festivals all over the world, including India, he said it has changed the ways of their observance.
