“I will try not to go to any mosque and be the cause of a public gathering there”, he added.

Fazlur Rehman also said that he will offer prayers at home with his brothers and nephews.

While responding to a question from Saleem Safi, host of the show, Moulana said that the agreement between the government and the Ulema should be respected.

“In my opinion, when a consensus is formed on an issue and an Ijmah is formed, then that Ijmah should be respected,” he said.

“My personal opinion then remains my personal opinion,” he added.

He also said that he had presented his recommendations regarding SOPs for mosques during the month of Ramazan at a religious meeting in Karachi.

He said that a forum was formed and their recommendations matched his.

JUIF Chief further added that the suggestions from Indian Ulema on the subject were also similar and an Islamic scholar from Nepal was very clear that very people should go to mosques to offer prayers in congregation.
