Cabinet Sub-Committee on Law and Order in its meeting on Wednesday under Provincial Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Muhammad Basharat Raja has reviewed the security arrangements for upcoming Chehlum of Imam Hussain and Arbaeen processions.

The meeting, held at Punjab Civil Secretariat, appealed that the Arbaeen processions should not be moved in too many scattered columns.

To ensure security, individuals should cooperate in the implementation of the SOPs issued by the government, the meeting suggested.

Committee Chairman Mohammad Basharat Raja thanked the religious scholars for their arrival and observed that the Shia community always cooperated in maintaining law and order.

He said it was necessary to maintain security and establish harmony on the occasion of Chehlum on September 17.
