Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the government found a middle ground — in the form of a 20-point plan agreed with ulema on congregational prayers in Ramazan because "people would have insisted on congregations in Ramazan".

Responding to a question during the Ehsaas telethon, the premier said that the onus for ensuring that the standard operating procedures (SOPs) issued by the government for congregational prayers are followed would be on the ulema.
