Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that he will not impose a country-wide lockdown and urged people to self-quarantine themselves to fight coronavirus.

The country has decided to suspend all domestic flights from March 26 onward as part of the measures to contain the spread of the virus.

A total of 41 new cases were confirmed in Sindh on Saturday, taking the provincial tally to 333, according to Sindh Health Department spokesperson Meeran Yousuf.

Pakistan's response came hours after Modi proposed that the leaders of the SAARC countries should chalk out a joint strategy to fight coronavirus pandemic which has killed over 5,000 people globally.

Last year, under pressure after the FATF review, Pakistan formally banned Saeed's JuD and other associated organisations, after years of allowing them to operate freely across the country.

India maintains that the UNMOGIP, established in January 1949, has outlived its utility and is irrelevant after the Simla Agreement and the consequent establishment of the Line of Control.

Facing backlash for peddling fake news, the Pakistani PM deleted all three videos from his Twitter timeline in which he falsely claimed that the UP police was carrying out "a pogrom" against Muslims in the state.

The Indian Army Chief had said on Wednesday that the situation along the Line of Control can deteriorate and that the Indian Army is ready for "escalatory matrix".

The commission also said that human rights defenders in Pakistan face constant threats and intimidation from multiple sources, including the state and non-state actors.

In past too, gaffes by Imran Khan had left many scratching their heads. Early this year, he left his country embarrassed by saying that Germany and Japan 'share' border.
