Reaction of Twitterati
Soon after the tweet went viral, Twitterati started reacting. Sharing the screengrab of the tweet, a user by name, ‘Mohammed Mujahed’ wrote, “Secular CM What is the problem with Azaan or Siren ? We are not breaking any lockdown rules. As per the Govt COVID-19 guidelines we are offering prayers at home.”.
Rectifying the mistake, Rachakonda Police not only deleted the controversial tweet but also issued a clarification. It wrote that it was a wrong reply by Social Media Cell. The police also assured to take action against the person who is responsible for providing the wrong information.
It may be mentioned that as per lockdown guidelines, all religious places should be closed for the public. However, there is no restriction on ‘Azaan’ and ‘Siren’.
