The imam, the public order office and the police officers had only partially succeeded in persuading people to keep the prescribed distance, as the police twittered on Friday evening (3 April 2020). "The prayer was ended prematurely in agreement with the Imam," it was said. The leaders of the mosque also assured the police that they would use the social media to reiterate that calls to prayer need not be followed by personal appearance and that the calls would be immediately stopped if there were any new gatherings.
