The shrine of famous Sufi saint Lal Shahbaz Qalandar has reopened for the public in Sehwan Sharif from August 17, under standard operating procedures (SOPs).

Jamshoro deputy commissioner (DC) Capt (retd) Fareeduddin Mustafa earlier on Wednesday said that the Sindh Auqaf Department would provide face masks to visitors, while six walk-through sanitiser gates would be installed and Rangers officials would be temporarily deputed at the shrine.

“Only 50 people will be allowed to enter the shrine at a time and no one will be allowed to enter without face masks,” he said, adding that the shrine would be closed twice a day for an hour for spraying disinfectant.


He further shared that only 25 people would participate in the dhamal at a time.

Meanwhile, two ambulances would also be present at the shrine, and a medical dispensary would be set up as well.

According to PPP MNA Sikandar Ali Rahoupoto,  the local market around the shrine would also open while strictly observing the Covid-19 SOPS.
