All Pakistan organization of small trade and cottage industry (APSTCI)That traders are disappointed with the Sindh government restrictions against the trade association as they were being forced to starve with the lockdown restriction and demanded to openthe markets. The trade leader said that Karachi chamber of commerce and industry was also against the lockdown which was imposed by Sindh government as safety step for the people as business was badly affected and couldn’t afford to bear the loses further .the head of Sindh Tajir Ittehad, told hat the traders in Karachi used to make Rs5 billion in a day before the lockdown and they are now suffering a loss of around two billion. Due to a lot of problem faced by Karachi traders and economic markets the Karachi markets were allowed to open from 6 am to 5 pm by making thelockdown at ease .the Sindh government has also imposed strict laws which includestaking precautions against coronavirus where all customers and workers to follow thegiven rule.

Some people even went against the law and started the violence. Many groups of worshippers went against the law and incensed mob b turned on the police which prevented them from going to mosques. The khatib of the mosque states this un Islamic as the government has banned the worshipers going for prayers. Videos went on social media showed the anger of people towards the police and Sindh government by throwing stones and forcing the police. People who attended Friday prayers at other mosques, along with the prayer leaders who led them, said they hadleft matters to the Will of Allah, adding that no harm would befall them unless it was Divine Will. On the issue of shutting down the mosques first, the government appealed to religious scholars for guidance. It was not needed. Prayers had already been suspended at the holiest of mosques in Saudi Arabia. Many other Muslim countries had closed theirs. So why not in Pakistan..The government has taken a good step by closing major gathering places and crowdpoints as opening them will lead to many more cases but at the same time, the government should also have taken care of people who have been affected the mostby releasing a fund for needy people, working closely with charities to donate ration and basic medical supplements.

Food is not the onlyproblem here other problems such as health and safety issues as well where the government lacked to provide safety measures to the public where there was a shortage of safety masks in the markets. Sindh government should have been prepared for the worst situation in the provinces and should have applied for funds Another problem that occurred and Sindh government faces were banning the people from worshiping in mosques Sindh government should have taken smart stepby having a meeting with Islamic schooler and prevented people coming from mosques and delivered this message with the help of those sheikhs and mulla as people are so intolerant when it comes to Islamic affairs.
