“We are really shocked by the incident. We were surprised to hear this story. This means that people are not God fearing.

“It is scaring that people have gone to the extent of stealing ram meant for religious activity.

The cleric urged the people to fear God and stay away from theft or any criminal behaviour, stressing that everyone will answer for their deeds in this life and the next.

He said: “It is high time people repented and took the path of Allah. It is not too late. People should stop committing bad things and act according to Allah’s commandments.”
