Sources have reported that they appealed to Muslims and other peace-loving and secular citizens to observe a peaceful shutdown. Religious leaders advised Muslims to offer special prayers for restoration of the mosque.

In order to avoid any untoward incident, security has been tightened and police have banned the assembly of five or more people till Tuesday. It also denied permission to some organisations to hold meetings, rallies and processions.

Especially around the places of worship paramilitary forces have been deployed and even barricades have been erected for checking vehicles and frisking people at several places.
