Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Sardar Ali Amin Khan Gandapur chaired a high-level meeting to review the arrangements for Muharram. The meeting thoroughly reviewed the security plan and other arrangements to maintain peace during the month.

During the briefing on the security plan, it was mentioned that Muharram processions and gatherings would be held in 14 districts of the province. Out of these, eight districts were identified as the most sensitive, while the other six were considered sensitive regarding law and order and security arrangements.

It was decided that approximately 40,000 security personnel would be deployed. In addition, special contingents of the Frontier Corps (FC) and the army would be deployed to ensure the security of processions and gatherings. The Chief Minister directed that adequate financial resources should be provided to maintain security. He also emphasized the importance of reaching out to religious leaders of different sects and elected public representatives to promote religious harmony and tolerance during Muharram.

In summary, the suspension of mobile phone services in Peshawar on Muharram 9 and 10 is part of a broader security strategy to ensure the safety and peaceful observance of the holy month. The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government is taking extensive measures, including the deployment of thousands of security personnel and coordination with religious leaders, to maintain law and order during this period.
