For dengue control, turn to God!


The Punjab government has decided to ask people to turn to God in repentance in order to counter dengue, according to an advertisement that was to be disseminated through all national dailies of the province. On Thursday, the Punjab Auqaf Department passed a joint resolution of ‘azam’ (firm resolve) against dengue and also decided to ask for their message to be disseminated through the sermons in the mosques on Friday. The advertisement asked people to “pray to God and to seek forgiveness for their sins so that they could be saved from the fatal assaults of dengue virus” which is expected to hit with a greater force this year.
