Hyderabad: Mosques in Hyderabad will play a key role in the battle against coronavirus by playing awareness audio clips on their public address systems.
This decision was taken by cops after they felt that there is a need to spread more awareness in Urdu.
In order to make audio and video clips explaining coronavirus precautions, lockdown rules and social distancing norms, cops took help from religious scholars.
The scholars and noted personalities who contributed their services are Syed Auliya Hussaini Murtuza Pasha Quadri, Maulana Mohammed Khan Quadri, Maulana Ilyas Shamshi and others.
