Pilgrims slam govt selective measures

But pilgrims of Imam Reza Shrine have slammed their media trial under the pretext of Coronavirus.
Because, they noted malicious bias towards them.
They noted no restrictions on other people from other countries where Coronavirus hit the most.
They cited that borders with China remain open while no such policy they see for Arab countries where the Coronavirus hit.
Government of Pakistan’s measures have irked the pilgrims because of its double standards.
Moreover, they smelt a rat behind all this.
Specially, their media trial angered them.
Coronavirus has created fear among society. It created a sense of uncertainty while profiteers began making money through selling masks at exorbitant prices.
