Hamza Ali Abbasi slams people wanting to pray in mosques amid pandemic

The actor's tweet came as a Friday message and Twitter is divided

Entertainment Desk April 17, 2020
Popular actor Hamza Ali Abbasi tweeted at the dawn of this Friday to give a message to the people arguing about going to the mosques to attend their Friday prayers.

Abbasi started off by reiterating the leverage provided by the religion in case of certain circumstances where praying in mosques may be exempted. He said, "Allah has given ease in his prayer from Tayyamum/Qasr/praying at home in case of bad weather, let alone a deadly virus."

He then went on to blatantly make certain comparisons, "but it feels like the Clergy in my country is becoming like the Pharisees of Bani Isarel who want God to do what they say rather than surrender to what God says."

The personality then received several responses, both positive and negative as the debate surrounding the issue sparked on his thread once again.

Some lauded him for his approach


Others, continued to relay the same old questions
