People in Pakistan try to cope with Ramadan under lockdown

As the global number of COVID-19 cases rises, most Muslim countries have stopped congregational prayers at mosques, as a preventive measure to stop the spread of COVID-19. The situation has become even more difficult with people having to observe Ramadan rituals under lockdown. In Pakistan, the government finds itself in a catch-22 situation, with rising poverty on one hand and a life-threatening pandemic on the other. #COVID-19 #Ramadan
