Small traders in Karachi have urged the Sindh government to allow commercial activity on Friday and Sunday this week given the two-day Ashura holiday.

Markets and commercial centres in the metropolis are shut on Fridays and Sundays, which are observed as ‘safe days’ each week in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Traders Action Committee and Karachi Tajir Ittehad maintained that periodic closures have severely impacted businesses.
