In Pakistan, Ramadan begins tomorrow


The Ruet-e-Hilal Committee said on Tuesday that the Ramadan moon could not be sighted on Tuesday. The first fast will now be observed on Thursday (tomorrow).

Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Chairman Mufti Muneebur Rehman said that they received no reports of moon sightings from anywhere in the country, including from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Hence, the first of Ramadan will be on Thursday.

The committee had convened to form a decision on the sighting of the moon. Rehman oversaw the committee proceedings in Karachi, which had convened in the meteorological department’s office.

The session in Peshawar was presided by Mufti Shahabuddin Popalzai.

The Pakistan Meteorological Department had said that the moon should ideally be sighted between 7:12 pm to 7:43 pm but chances of it being sighted are low.
