Keeping in view the rising number of Covid-19 cases, Abbottabad’s deputy commissioner on Monday rejected an application of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam- Fazl (JUI-F) seeking permission to hold a public rally on September 9.
Deputy Commissioner Nadeem Nasir said the Covid-19 was spreading fast in Abbottabad and feared that the public gathering will further spread the deadly virus in the city.
In view of the prevailing situation, the district administration has decided not to give JUI-F permission to hold the public gathering in the city, he added.
On the other hand, the JUI-F leadership has vowed to hold a public gathering in the city on September 9 at any cost, sources privy to the development said.
