It comes after Muslim worshippers were arrested for breaking lockdown regulations. On Sunday, the minister apologized for a “blasphemous” remark made to praying Muslims by a policeman enforcing coronavirus rules, which was also condemned by a leading Muslim organization after being caught on video.

AFP reported that an “urgent investigation” had been launched “to establish the identity of the person behind such sacrilege”.

Cele said on Monday the police officers were correct to arrest people who were breaking the law. The minister raised concerns that people decrying the conduct of the officers did not speak out against the people unlawfully gathering.
