The spiritual head of Ajmer Sharif Dargah has appealed to people to be united and postpone sit-in demonstrations going on in the country to defeat the coronavirus pandemic.

"Wherever sit-in demonstrations are going on in the country, postpone it for some time because at this time the country has to unite and fight a pandemic," the dargah's head Syed Zainul Abedin Ali Khan said in a statement on Friday.

He said the Centre and the state government have shown sensitivity on the issue by taking several big decisions and issued guidelines to prevent and protect our citizens from the virus.

These guidelines should be strictly followed so that everyone in our country can survive this pandemic, he said.

He said that every citizen of the country has to be protected from the virus. People should rise above disputes and stop all forms of protests for some time to defeat the coronavirus and strengthen the country to save it from the pandemic.

He has urged the public to follow 10 points such as travelling less, cleaning, staying at home and not visiting public places.
