ISLAMABAD (APP): A team from the local administration’s food authority on Tuesday visited the shrine of Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif, also known as Bari Imam Sarkar, to review arrangements for the annual “Langar” (community meal) to prevent distribution of the substandard food among devotees.

The initiative was taken on the directives of Deputy Commissioner Islamabad Irfan Nawaz Memon, said the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) administration’s spokesman while talking to the media.

He said the food authority’s team which had visited the shrine was led by Dr. Tahira Sadiq.
