Social distancing proving to be a problem in Pakistan.
By Paul Joseph Watson – April 3, 2020
A video out of Karachi, Pakistan shows a violent mob chasing away a police car after authorities tried to shut down a local mosque as part of social distancing rules.
The clip shows a mob of hundreds of men pursuing the police cruiser while screaming and hurling rocks at the car.
“Today when police reportedly tried to stop a Friday prayer congregation at a mosque forcibly in #Karachi’s Liaquatabad, residents reacted violently,” tweeted journalist Zia Ur Rehman.
Another clip shows one of the officers wearing a mask being manhandled by the crowd.
According to the Business Recorder, “An Imam of a mosque in Liaquatabad area was holding Friday congregation prayers despite a ban imposed by the government from 12 noon to 3 pm. A large number of people also gathered in the mosque to offer Friday prayers.”
The Imam then incited the mob to attack the police, causing them to flee “in a bid to save their lives.”
A larger contingent of officers later reached the site and arrested the Imam along with three other people.
As we previously highlighted, Muslim migrants living in Europe’s “sensitive” ghettos have also largely ignored the lockdown measures.
The situation is so dire that a top government official in France suggested not enforcing the law in migrant-heavy areas and keeping shops open in order to prevent riots.
