Mobile phone services were partially suspended in different parts of the country on Friday in view of strict security arrangements for Muharram processions. The services were suspended in Karachi, Sukkur, Hyderabad, Jacobabad, Kashmore, Khairpur, Shikarpur and other parts of Sindh. According to reports, the Sindh government has requested Centre to suspend cellular services from 10am to 10pm today (8th Muharram), especially in areas near the routes of Muharram processions. In Punjab, the cellular services are not operative in Faisalabad, Sialkot, and Bhukkur. The suspension led to several residents facing difficulty in their routine lives. Internet services were also observed to have been disrupted in some areas of Karachi. Cellular services will also remain partially suspended in different cities countrywide on 9th and 10th Muharram. Home Minister Sindh Sohail Anwar Khan Siyal had approached the interior ministry earlier this week to suspend mobile phone services in major cities across the province on 9th and 10th Muharram.
