New Delhi, April 26— Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday called upon people to pray more in this Ramazan so that the world gets rid of Coronavirus before Eid and they could celebrate the festival with traditional enthusiasm and gaiety.
“Friends, the holy month of Ramazan too has begun. The last time when Ramazan was celebrated, no one had imagined that we would be facing such a huge predicament this time around. But, now that this trouble has come to plague the entire world, it gives us an opportunity to mark this Ramazan as an icon of restraint, goodwill, sensitivity and service,” said PM in his national radio address known as ‘Mann Ki Baat’.
He further said: “This time, we should pray more than ever before so that prior to the celebration of Eid the world is rid of Corona and we celebrate Eid with enthusiasm and gaiety like earlier times.”
He asked people to follow the lockdown guidelines in order to defeat the epidemic.
“I am confident that during these days of Ramazan, by adhering to the guidelines of the local administration, we will reinforce our fight against Corona. 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,” said the PM.
